More Lessons From the Pelaton

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, months really. With everything that is going on, I took some time off from blogging to process it all. I don’t know about you, but it seems like each time I wrap my head around one series of events, something new happens. It’s nuts out there.

Thank goodness for the Pelaton.

I’ve never been one to wear a fitness tracker or a heart rate monitor. My philosophy has always been that I don’t want to over think it. I know when I’ve moved enough or eaten too much. It’s usually pretty easy to figure out.

But the Pelaton is all about the numbers. Cadence, Resistance, Output. Rather than overwhelming, those numbers have come to mean something powerful and positive.

There have been many days when I’ve started a ride, not really that into it, and by the end my output numbers are equal to or better than some of my other rides. More often than not, I get off the bike realizing that I had so much more to give than I thought I did. And even on the days that I don’t post a personal best, I find myself being grateful that I did something rather than writing the day off.

It also changes my attitude for the rest of the day. In 30 minutes I can go from frustration and uncertainty to empowered and happy.

The Pelaton has become a microcosm of life as a whole. How many times do we not even start something because we don’t feel like we have what it takes? (Or maybe it’s just me – but I’m guessing I’m not the only one.)

And yet, I’m sure you’ve had moments of starting anyway only to be surprised by how well it went.

I’ve certainly had days where I’m not feeling it in real estate. My clients aren’t motivated, things aren’t coming together, and I just want to skip life that day and hope for something better tomorrow.

And yet, if I just dive in one phone call leads to another, which leads to an idea about how I can help a client, which leads to a referral… and the list goes on. Before I know it, I’m in a great mood and things are starting to click.

While I know this inherently, it’s been really helpful to have something outside of real estate to illustrate this in a quick and tangible way.

Now, more than ever, it’s important to manage your energy with intention. And so I’m curious – how do you shift your energy?

To your success!
