USE A GOOD "COACH"... OVERCOME YOUR OBSTACLES IN BUSINESS!
Patricia Kennedy inspired me today with her post: Getting the Gold: Maybe you need more than a great plan? I just spent all morning with an individual whom I will call Karen; she is an old friend and a "life coach" to about 20 people--she has helped me out in the past with relationship issues and today was helpful in getting me to see how I need to approach a situation here in the office which I have been dealing with for over a year now....an office bully who is very successful at putting roadblocks in the way of my business.
This individual (Karen) studied at Sarah Lawrence and got her degree while studying with Joseph Campbell as he rolled out his theory of symbols being the universal language of the subconscious mind. Using the well known and highly regarded Carl Jung as his source of data for his research, Joseph Cambell has gone on over the years to publish books and make films for PBS regarding the phenomenon of symbolic ways of human communication.
Karen studied with Joseph Campbell in his most prolific years and has been able to incorporate her gained knowledge into her work with individuals, as an astrologer and a life counselor. Her work has become well known amoung some of the worlds most famous individuals and she is an established "Life Coach" to a handful of the rich and famous.
Since she is a dear friend of mine, we gather with a few other friends now and then and this weekend was one which she had set aside from her very busy schedule to see us and to work individually with each of us to assist us in getting our lives back on track in our businesses.
In my work with Karen this morning I found that over the years and without even thinking about it, I was able to use what I had learned from this valuable friend in handling my clients and customers. I am also now aware that my dealing with fellow agents and others in the real estate business have been influenced by my knowledge gained from working with her. The following posts were written by me over the last few years. These articles were written as I recalled events in my life where I was able to put to use the information gained from my work with Karen:
Now, you may ask: What does this have to do with real estate and "Life Coaching"???
In the process of studying and learning the ways and workings of the inaccessible subconscious mind, I have found a way to deal with life as never before.
Through working with this individual, I have actually become less a creature of my exisitence, vulnerable to all that befalls me and have become a full participant in the journey (one of many) that I am currently on. I have a new take on life--a new perspective, gained from the interaction that I now have with people in general. I am more ready now to handle the "problems" through letting go of needing to be "in control" when I am not. That letting go has given me the strength to trust that things will work their own way out--good, bad or indifferent; but more to the point, they will work out the way they are meant to work out.
As long as I pay attention to the truth about how I fit (and I do fit!) I will have the relief of turning it all over to the higher forces that do exist and that do control the results!
