Have you experienced rain in the drought? Most likely not if you’re standing in the same place of business expecting the same old things to happen to make your operations thrive. You might see dribbles come from this approach, but rain? Highly unlikely.
So what do you do? The answers are plentiful, each having some form of value depending upon the circumstances. And as for us, we do not discount nor do we challenge any unusual methods nor do we boast that our ideas are superior to others. Nonetheless, I can give you two straightforward answers as to where to begin to influence the clouds of rain.
First, who you are personally cannot be in contrast to who you are in business. That is if you want to sustain, and then uniquely grow again, and also desire to change during uncertain times. Honesty about the entirety of your life is essential to take that next step toward change. If you live a dual life, then for sure, you will not need an umbrella anytime soon.
Second, I think changing perspectives is one of the hardest things to do, especially if we have vast empirical experience and are fixed about our ways regarding living and business skills. Yet, these fixated ways to think do not breed newer, generative behaviors. Additional action options are vital for recovery and future harvests, both personally and professionally.
So how do Cherise and I make real changes during these real estate times? Sometimes we momentarily flinch and wonder and doubt and become exhausted about the process of making real change like anyone else. However, we recognize our own reflexes to fear, as well as our visceral responses to the plethora of pessimistic media reporting that is happening constantly.
Media reporting and economic forecasting only consider what has already happened in the past, and these tools of prognostication try to predict what will happen in the future. Past and futuristic thinking spawns additional worry and unrealistic comparisons.
But we see things differently – not with rose-colored lens but through the aperture of belief – which promotes present-day and eternal thinking. When we see the doomsday predictions of our national economy, we understand these realities and recognize that many people are seriously affected. Nevertheless, we submit ourselves to our beliefs. This approach is but one example of how we trust God for our lives. And ironically, through this way of living and doing business, we have found ourselves flourishing in the moment – no matter how things around us look.
In short, living holistically in the present allows you to navigate through the waxing and waning process of change. If you’re stuck about the past and the unpredictability regarding the future, then you will probably be searching for rain clouds in the sky for quite some time.
Why not choose to live fully, honestly and in the present-day moment?
