On this episode of The Most Dwanderful Real Estate Podcast Ever, Dwan discusses something that she has mentioned before on the podcast but that is a very timely topic for the end of the year: The Five Equities of Life. Dwan heard about this idea about 15 years ago, and it really sparked for her a new chapter of self-awareness and intentional living.
The Five Equities are: financial, spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical. Dwan writes these five words across the top of a big flip chart page and keeps a running list of what is going on in each of those areas of her life, adding and removing things as needed. This allows her to look back at what has happened so far this year and have a good idea of where she wants to go based on where she is been and where she is now. Having an honest assessment of yourself and choosing to intentionally set and work towards goals is imperative to a successful life.
Since starting this practice of maintaining a list of her Five Equities of Life, Dwan has also become more conscious of her self-talk, choosing to remove negative self-talk from her life. Did you know that 75% of your thoughts every day are negative? And 80% of those negative thoughts are about yourself? Thinking negatively will lead to negative self-esteem, self-limiting beliefs, and an unhealthy judgment of others. You will be amazed how much your life will change once you decide to take every thought captive and remove negative self-talk from your mind. This incorporates the spiritual, emotional, and mental equities and can be one of the catalysts to the life change you have been looking for, setting you up for success.
