I’m one of the top real estate brokers in all of New York City today, and I got to where I am by seeking out as much coaching and education and reading as many books as possible.

Early in my career, I attended a seminar where the topic of discussion was on M.E.D.S. And no, we’re not talking about Prozac. Actually, M.E.D.S is a life-changing acronym that I’ve carried with me ever since.

What does M.E.D.S. stand for?

Meditation. One of the first things I do every morning is meditate. I go to TaraBrach.com and usually listen to one of her talks for 10, 20, or on earlier mornings, 60 minutes. Meditation is so important when you’re helping people buy and sell homes because it’s so easy to get caught up in the narrative of a virtual reality rather than focusing on the true reality.

"Though sleep is the final element in M.E.D.S., none of the other three elements are possible without it."

Exercise. If you’ve watched any of my videos, you know how heavily I stress the health and wellness of the Earth as well as the importance of being healthy and well in our lives—both financially and physically speaking. Your physical wellness should be one of your top priorities, and good exercise habits will lead you down the path to a healthier lifestyle. I work with a yoga instructor and personal trainer from TrainDeep.com, and since adopting Jonathan Angelilli’s life-changing workout regimen, I’ve lost 50 pounds.

Diet. I’m personally on the Whole30 Diet, which was introduced to me by my trainer. This is just one of the many dieting options out there, but if you’re interested, it consists of minimizing your added sugar intake and processed foods like bread. Your eating habits are up to you, but my advice is to formulate a deliberate dieting plan.

Sleep. I belong to a club that meets at 5 a.m. each day, which means I’ve made a routine out of going to bed early. Though it’s the final element in M.E.D.S., none of the other three elements are possible without it.

I’ve found M.E.D.S. to be the recipe for success in my life and business, and I’m sure you will too. If you have any questions about today’s topic or about the people I referenced in, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to speak with you!
