Was That a Sign You Just Sent Me, God?

I woke up this morning having a hard time getting out of bed. It's a cloudy, overcast day and the temps are a bit chilly. I really didn't have to be anywhere until this afternoon so there wasn't much motivation to get moving.

The past few days were dotted with failed deals, more bills added to the already high pile, and the realization that we are nearing the end of yet another year, and many of the goals I had set for myself had yet to be met. What am I going to do?

Direction

I am disappointed in where I am personally and professionally in my life, and despite trying to adopt a new outlook, attitude, and determination to get through these uncertain times, I'm feeling like my failures far outweigh my successes this year. Is it time to move on to a different career? If it is, what career am I supposed to move on to? Is it time to just move? If it is, where am I supposed to move to? Where am I supposed to be??

As I got in my car and drove to my first destination of the day, these and many other questions flew through my mind. And then out of nowhere, someone asked me if I sell condos and if I would sell his. I'm going to choose to take that as a sign that it's not time to give up on this crazy career in real estate.

And I'll take it as a sign that I'll receive the direction I need to make some other tough choices. We'll all get through the days ahead. Somehow, some way we will get through.
