The inability to navigate the stages of any relationship. The first four stages leave us all vulnerable in different aspects. Stage four is the prime opportunity where the feeling of imporance, or need for recognition becomes compelling..
Stage #1. The power stuggle. "You can't tell me how to run my business!"
Stage #2. Disillusionment
"What I thought was 'appealing and good' in the beginning now is a GREAT irritation."
"You didn't do what you said you would do.
Stage #3: Compromise
"Maybe I don't need it all!"
Stage #4: Complacency
"I keep doing what I've been doing for the past 8 years."
Stage #5: Legacy
"I expect to be treated according the the past 12 chapters of my life"
Stage #6: Tradition
"I've got my dance!" Selctive hearing and long enduring trustworhyness has prevailed and this relationship does it own thing inspite of the expectations of society.
When one is unaware of the relationship progression they fail to adequately nurture the relationship. Such failing in ALL relationships result in an emotional drifting apart and the creation of 'strangers' in the relation who only recognize the others image, but no longer know the things of importance about one another.
Agents go 'grazing' for many reasons. Often it is the reality that the broker is operating on a business model that the agent did not understand 'in the beginning.' The cold splash in the face of "Pay the Fee and you are OK with me," just doesn't have a warm embrace.
Best of success to you,
