Creating Alignment Through Strength - EPISODE 46

Uncategorized Apr 08, 2021

“At the end of the day, our brain can either work for us or against us — it’s up to us to program that.”

—  Michelle Risi


Michelle Risi doesn’t have the aggressive approach of most real estate agents. She avoided selling because she didn’t feel it was a good fit for her introversion.


Yet she was named one of the Top 50 women in Canadian real estate by Real Estate Professionals magazine.


Michelle found her niche developing education and training in the industry.


Her Aligned Method is based on neuroscience research and self-discovery throughout her professional journey, which took her from feeling like she didn’t fit the industry and being afraid to explore the client-facing roles to managing her own brokerage.


“That’s where the Aligned Method really came from,” she explains. “It’s basically the process for clearing everything that’s standing in your way — which is usually the mindset blocks — and really just being able to move forward to where you want to go, as opposed to operating out of fear.”


After she started seeing incredible results, she realized that there was something there — and she needed to share it.


“The brain’s job is not to achieve success. That’s not what its purpose is. Its purpose is to keep us safe,” Michelle explains. “Anything that feels new, threatening, uncomfortable is going to set off the alarm bells…  that’s when we start engaging in things like procrastination or perfectionism or comparing ourselves to other people, because that slows us down.”

  • The five steps of Michelle’s Aligned Method
  • How the Aligned Method will help you with energy management and identifying your strengths   
  • How to recognize where you are stuck — and how you’re stopping yourself
