We had the good fortune of connecting with Morgan King and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Morgan, other than deciding to work for yourself, what was the single most important decision you made that contributed to your success?
The single most important decision I’ve made (and continually make) is to not allow anything outside of myself the power to determine my worthiness. I’ve re-framed my belief system into knowing I am worthy just because. There is not prerequisite. There is no client, no amount of money, no accolade, or no external thing that has the ability take away my worth. Once I decided this, I was able to truly enjoy my life, and find fulfillment in my work. If I didn’t get a deal, it wasn’t meant for me in the first place, and I didn’t take it personally. Especially in a field that has significant ups and downs each day, it is important to not allow those to define me. We often give so much power to people, situations, and things outside of us, and it becomes and endless cycle that can never be met, because only when you look within, can you find what it is that you’re looking for.
What should our readers know about your business?
We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. – I’d have to say that my unique skill set of combining business strategy with spiritual mindset practices make me a great Realtor and business owner. I absolutely love what I do, and attract some of the most incredible people as clients. Often times in my industry, the going theme is to work 24/7 for your clients, however, I see this as a disadvantage. If you aren’t supporting yourself, it is impossible to support others. I need to be the strong unwavering foundation for my clients, so I can handle the adversity that comes our way during the day to day. In order to do this, it is important that I put my well being first, and focus on my energy to ensure I can be the best version of me for not only myself, but my clients. How did you get to where you are today business-wise. Was it easy? – It wasn’t necessarily easy, but what did we think we signed up for in this life? 🙂 In every scenario, I see myself either learning or growing. There’s no such thing as a setback, unless you want to view it as such. The challenges I face are no different than anyone else, as they’re all relative to our own experience. The important thing is to not allow those challenges to hold you back. I try to be very open and vulnerable with others, as often times, we’re not that different from one another. Being able to show someone they’re not alone is very important to me, and I know it makes people feel seen. If not, how did you overcome the challenges? – see above 🙂 What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story? – I want everyone to know that even if it appears that someone has it all together on the outside, we’re all just figuring things out as we go along. There is no ‘there’ in life, or road map on how to live it the ‘right way’. I also want to say that that is okay! That’s why we’re here. To explore, make mistakes, experience growth and change, and to try and enjoy as much of each day as possible. So go out there and live! You never know when your last day will be.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Where would you take them? – My favorite places to visit are windansea beach in Bird Rock, and the Torrey Pines Gliderport. Both are so beautiful, and are what make living in San Diego such a blessing. Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc. In your view what are some of the most fun, interesting, exciting people, places or things to check out? – I’m also a huge foodie, and have quite a few go to places. Since I live in Bird Rock, I tend to hang in our area, espeically since the pandemic. Some of my favorite spots are Wayfarer Bread and Bakery for pastries, coffee or there pizza, it is to die for. I love Wheat and Water, we order from there at least once per week. I’m also a member of LJ Crafted Wines where they use growlers for their wines so it’s better for the environment.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have a very long list of shout outs that have supported me along my life journey. There are too many to even count! I would say, for anyone who is looking for support themselves, to just set the intention of what it is you’re looking for. You’d be surprised to know that once you put it out there, people, experiences, and things start to pop up like magic. To support the series, if I had to pick two of my favorites, I’d have to say Megan Ladd, my joy coach, and the book, “A Course in Miracles Made Easy” by Alan Cohen. I found Megan after experiencing many years burnout thinking that life was meant to be a struggle. She taught me how to strengthen my voice within and separate myself from the voice of fear and anxiety. This has completely changed my life. As for the book, I have listened to this on audible on repeat (over 26 times already) since 2016. There are so many messages and insights, I learn something new every time I press play.
