Fearing that you'll go your life without achieving your dreams is natural. But sometimes the fear takes too big of a hold on your actions. It's paralyzing.
Instead of letting this take over, discover how you’re preventing yourself from getting to that place, and take action to get out of the rut. Sometimes it helps to just take a step back to reflect.
We all have trouble with purpose and direction. I see social media posts daily about the depression and anxiety people are going through in their lives and how it prevents them from real progress. This takes some real soul searching. You have to come face to face with real mental problems that are holding you back.
We all have mental obstacles in the way of our own improvement. It’s a matter of discovering why those obstacles are there and the actions that need to be taken in order to remove them. I'm not saying this is easy. Admitting there is a problem is tough enough as it is. Seeking help for that problem is pretty far out there for most people. But it may be necessary.
Look inward. Find a way of life that allows you to get everything you need in order to function properly.
Next, you have to teach yourself to find real, tangible value in the goals that you set for yourself. Check yourself regularly to be sure that you’re making real progress and not just creating the feeling of productivity. Find a group of friends who understand the changes you need to make. They will help you and do their best not to stand in the way.

The Denver Post~ 1933It was exactly 2:38 a.m. when Denver
"When I decided to sell my home and look for a new place, my first call was to Jim and Ion Real Estate. He listed my condo and in two short weeks my place was under contract. Now, the real fun began, looking for a new place! The Ion Real Estate website was great. I loved the map function and the emails it sent with new listings that matched my previous searches. On Saturday, Jim and I headed out to look at several places I had picked to see. At the time I didn’t really notice how he listened carefully to everything I said about each place from the lighting to the layout. I was even a little sad that I didn’t find anything that day but Jim reassured me not to worry and a week later he had set up some more appointments. I still remember walking into my new place and just knowing. I had only taken two steps into it and I knew I wanted it.
Next came the easy part for me, but this is where having the right realtor and mortgage broker is essential. They make it seem easy! Jim guided me through all the aspects of my sale and purchase. I appreciated how simple each step seemed from making an offer to dealing with inspections. Even the loan seemed easy. I asked a ton of questions, I think it’s the teacher in me. I wanted to understand all the moving parts. Jim explained everything so clearly that I joked that he missed his calling and should have been a teacher, but he didn’t, I’m glad he is helping people find their homes!
Recently one of my close friends mentioned she wanted to stop renting and buy. I immediately referred her to Ion Real Estate. This time I was able to watch with an outsider perspective at the way Jim cued in on my friend’s preferences. Stephanie kept talking about the charm of old houses, a far cry from the sleek modern condo I chose. By the second house-hunting excursion, Jim knew just which home she would pick. As we walked up to the front porch, I saw Stephanie with the same excitement I had felt just a few months earlier. I watched her mentally move in her furniture and this time I saw the smile that crossed over Jim’s face when he knew Stephanie had found her home.
Throughout both experiences, it was clear Jim understands what people want in their homes and how to structure the entire buying experience to be a positive one. I have heard so many crazy stories from people that didn’t chose the right realtor or mortgage broker. They always start by saying, “I didn’t think a realtor made any difference.” It makes a difference! It made a difference for me and for Stephanie. Owning is better than renting; and, it is even better when Jim and Ion Real Estate are guiding you through the process!
