At some point and time, everyone has experienced a COVID-19 meltdown. For me, I reached my mental breaking point on March 31st, 2020 and during that time, I decided to make changes in my life and business. I was sitting in my home office and my anxiety hit a new time high as it became clear that COVID was going to last for the foreseeable future. The world was completely shut down and everything stopped. Our routines stopped, in-person connections with friends and family stopped, our businesses stopped, and life as we knew it stopped. As I look back, we were put on house arrest by the government, and our freedom was lost with no easy way of getting it back. It was on this day, that I realized three things:

  1. Spiritually:  I needed to dig deeper into my faith and spend time in the bible on a daily basis.
  2. Mentally: I was not giving 110% effort to my Real Estate Business as an agent and investor because I had a fear of failing and living my comfortable lifestyle.
  3. Gratefulness:  I have taken for granted the simple things in life that I could not go without; family time, working out, trying new restaurants, and attending networking events.

Once I realized those things, I made the decision that I was not going to live my life without appreciation for the simple things, faith was going to be the foundation of my decisions, and I was going to give 110% effort to my real estate business (Results below). My new normal has created an improved McKinsey and I share my transformation in hopes that it inspires others to become their best selves.
