An interesting turning point in my personal growth.

I am 30.  I looked forward to it for a long while thinking that leaving my 20s would elevate me to a new level of confidence.  Turns out that age doesn’t have anything to do with how others perceive you.

It took me a long time to learn that lesson.  I thought for the longest time that my youth was a negative in many people’s minds – and maybe it was.  But in reality it was my focus on my own age that was the issue.  My paranoia at how others regarded me caused me to behave a certain way.  And that behavior caused the reactions in others.  Vicious cycle and all that.

But a couple of months ago I somehow let the baggage go.  I was meeting with a local brokerage team this week and realized I was talking to them all as peers where as a year before I would have been trying to prove myself.  I realized the change because they were listening to me as peers.

  1. David,
    You proved yourself very early on… and “most” have been listening to you as a “Peer” for a long time brother…..
    God Bless.
