A Really Big Question You Want to Be Asking Yourself...
This is a really big question.
It is a question most people will resist.
The question is...
What do you want to do with the rest of your life?
The past is history and you cannot rewrite history.
The future is unknown and uncertain.
However, there is one thing in the future that is certain... DEATH.
Death is unpredictable, random, and inevitable.
Life is very short.
We are here for a very brief period of time.
The clock is ticking.
Today, I want to share two different approaches to the question above.
There is not a right or wrong answer... however, there is an answer that is more true for you.
There is great benefit to get clarity on your answer.
- Choice 1 - Give your highest and best to making life what you want it to be.
- Choice 2 - Give your highest and best to "what is".
Choice 1 - you are pitting your will against the will of the universe. This is an uphill battle at best.
Choice 2 - you embrace and accept whatever is unfolding in your life at any given moment.
Choice 1 is all about Hope.
Choice 2 is all about Truth/ Reality.
What is a greater skill to develop in life....
The skill to make the universe bend to your wishes and desires or...
The skill to handle change and challenge.
Which skill is actually going to serve you better in the long run?
Most people will absolutely choose Door #1 - Getting more of what you want.
However, is that really possible?
You have probably spent your entire life pursuing what you want.
How is that working out for you? Really?

Michael Singer writes...
Life rarely unfolds exactly as we want it to. And if we stop and think about it, that makes perfect sense. The scope of life is universal, and the fact that we are not actually in control of life's events should be self-evident. The universe has been around for 13.8 billion years, and the processes that determine the flow of life around us did not begin when we were born, nor will they end when we die. What manifests in front of us at any given moment is actually something truly extraordinary - it is the end result of all the forces that have been interacting together for billions of years. We are not responsible for even the tiniest fraction of what is manifesting around us. Nonetheless, we walk around constantly trying to control and determine what will happen in our lives. No wonder there's so much tension, anxiety, and fear. Each of us actually believes that things should be the way we want them, instead of being the natural result of all the forces of creation.
I want you to think hard about this.
We have been programmed from birth to believe if we want something good to happen, we must make it happen.
What if instead...
You believed you have already won the lottery in life... just by being here... and every moment of your life is truly a miracle... just the way it is.
What if your real purpose is...
To be present to the moment in front of you..
To serve that moment with your highest and best...
To elevate the moment...
And most importantly... to enjoy the moment.
One thing I have observed in my 31 years of coaching top performing agents...
One more deal doesn't change anything.
Think how many times you have said to yourself... "If I could just do one more deal."
Hint: As long as you keep chasing the idea that you can make life do what you want... you will always be one deal short!!
If you want to learn how to better embrace and accept "what is" with your highest and best...
If you want to develop the skill of confronting change and challenge in your life...
