We humans tend to be creatures of habit, and most of us don’t adapt to change very well - especially when that change is not pleasant.
What’s the secret for managing change and challenges? Wait for it…
Release the grip on the need to have everything under control, and go with the flow!
Ouch. No one wants to hear that, right? But actually learning to be “in the flow” can often prove to be one of the most effective, powerful ways to create calm in the midst of our storms.
I’ve seen this principle at work with many of my clients. Buying a home in the Denver market can have its challenges that include making that big financial commitment, addressing critical deadlines and other important real estate decisions.
That’s why I’m not surprised if or when my clients become stressed, frustrated, or even angry. Because my goal is to always focus on getting the best result possible for them, I feel that it is important for me to stay "in the flow" on their behalf. Staying in the flow means that I choose to remain calm, stay focused on my clients’ goals, look for the positive, and hold a peaceful space for my clients to return to.
I recently worked with a family that did a great job of living “in the flow”. When we began putting together a plan to sell their current home and upgrade to a larger home, many obstacles seemed to be in the way. But because of their positive attitudes, my clients were eager to stay in the flow with me. I’m happy to say that in spite of a couple of unexpected challenges that arose throughout the transaction, everything ended up going very well, and in their favor - and they recently just moved into their beautiful dream home!
Which brings us to an important point. Maybe you’ve heard the old adage, “The definition of F.E.A.R. is ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’”. Working outside of the flow can often cause unnecessary stress and worry. Staying in the flow ensures that we don’t waste time or energy on concerns that never even become a reality.
It does seem that most of the time, in the long run, things do work eventually work out for the good. So let’s our challenges and problems to teach us how to live “in the flow”!
