What KW has done for me:

I’m learning how to think bigger everyday (since they pound it into our heads-lol). My goals when I first started were pretty wimpy compared to now. It’s incredible what can be achieved when we write down our goals, share them, and create a plan to achieve them.

I’m learning the importance of mindset and being positive, always. I took a step away from negative things in my life and surrounded myself with positive energy and it has been life-changing. My happiness level has skyrocketed. My family and friends have taken notice and it’s amazing how my happiness has positively impacted the people I love the most.

I’m learning about work/life balance and designing the perfect life for me. I stopped playing soccer in high school and I have regretted it ever since. I didn’t play in college, I was out of shape, and I had other interests that were more important to me. These were the things I told myself to justify letting myself down. I have been walking my dog around a park with several soccer fields for 6 years and I have watched people of all ages play and everyday my heart would break a little more.

I shared my sadness with my accountability group. It was not ok for me to feel sorry for myself anymore. We talked it out, made a goal, made a plan and now I am playing soccer again! I’m playing soccer on the same fields I have been walking my dog around for 6 years. I can run again! My health is improving and I pulled out my old soccer shoes from high school (I didn’t have the heart to throw them away!) I used those 15 year old shoes until they fell apart! Then I finally bought nice new shoes because I will be playing for a very long time.

This time of year, I reflect on what I am thankful for. I am thankful for Keller Williams and the way my company is run. I think bigger, I set goals (and hit them!), I’m positive, I’m happier than I have ever been, I have balance in my life, and I’m playing soccer again (all year-round)!

I can’t wait to see what the future brings!
