I have had the honor of being a business and life coach to realtor, Alita Kalgaard. I really admire how she worked through her resistance to change with her work situation. Below is her story of how she got out of fear of making that transition.
Alita was struggling with a should-I-stay or should-I-go situation in her real estate business. It was nearly paralyzing but she did overcome the fear of change.
Here’s how, she…
- Took stock of where she was at. Was this a situation that she could stay in a little longer? No. She was miserable, dreaded going to work and “my clients were sensing my fear,” she said.
- Looked at the options. She began interviewing peers about her job situation. She listened to her intuition. She consulted her business coach. All helped her work through the fear and open her up to possibilities.
- Examined her feelings. Once she knew she could no longer stay and considered all the possibilities – even a new opportunity at another real estate office – Alita paid close attention to how she was feeling. What she noticed: “Every time I talked about staying, things didn’t feel right. When I talked about moving and what the possibilities were, I would get excited.”
And now Alita says, “The fears are gone, the money is there, I’m having fun.”
