Turn Your Mess Into Your Message


For most of us, it is hard to pinpoint exactly how we should be the agent of change in our communities and beyond.

We struggle with showing up because we don’t

? know that we have something important to share.

? feel confident to take the first step because we are not “experts.”

? understand that we doing others a disservice when we keep our zone of genius, gifts, talents, and superpowers to ourselves.

If you still have questions after Thursday’s event with Tony, Dean, Russell, and Jenna, you are in for a treat.

Consider your dilenma solved. Consider your superpower clarified. Consider your obstacles removed.

There Will Never Be a Right Time

Right about now your new year’s resolutions are starting to look less interesting. It’s been two weeks and life is settling in as normal and that burst of energy you felt for change at the end of 2018 is slowing down.

One thing is for sure. Time is not slowing down. It stops for no one. Whether you feel like acting on improving your life is irrelevant to time. Time will continue to do what it does best…keep going.

Are you waiting for the right time to act on your goals? Are you waiting to be motivated to start taking action?

We have the tendency to act slowly when we must get something done. The problem is the longer we take to act, the likelihood of us doing it diminishes greatly.

Now is the time to start growing.

We will never be ready in our minds to tackle life, so just do it and you will have a greater understanding of how to get better.

The truth is we are robbing ourselves of what life has to offer when we want to wait for the right time.

As a beginning real estate investor years ago, I paid dearly for neglecting to act when the market screamed financial crisis. Rental income greatly diminished, debt quickly accumulated, and instead of selling to recoup what I could, I held on to foreclosure.

I waited for the right time to sell and it never came. The dumbest decision of my real estate investing experience.

So, do not wait until the situation gets worst, start now.

Quit-Proof Your Growth Plan

January is a hopeful month.

A month during which we seem to have super powers. We feel like we can accomplish anything.

We have that burst of energy and the motivation to work hard to change our circumstances.

We are determined, focused, and ready to conquer the world–for the first seventeen days.

After the first seventeen days out of the year, we resign to our old self, unsatisfied with the status quo, but we are too tired to do anything about it.

For some of us, sprinting seem to be the way to get things done. Too exhausted to run the course, we have lost tract of time–with every hour looking like more of the same.

We don’t see the value of taking one step at a time and doing a little bit every day. It takes too long, so we quit.

In order to conquer this type of misguided of motivation. We must create a growth plan and quit-proof it.

To create a growth plan, it is important to do the following:

  • Take inventory and assess the areas for growth.
  • Decide on the steps to be taken to address the areas for growth.
  • Break the steps down further and indicate the specific actions to be taken and the specific date you intend to take it.
  • Create a growth environment.
  • Surround yourself with growth-minded people.

From day one we must be ready to follow the plan. It is crucial to put it in momentum. It is important to have people and resources standing by to take you from discouragement to bravery, for example. It is important to know day in and day out, what you intend to accomplish and stick to it.

The time will come when we will feel defeated and unable to move on. But that feeling should last for just a moment. We must be ready for it by being prepared. When we anticipate such obstacles, we’re better prepared to handle them when they do come.

We have to prepare for a marathon, not for a sprint because we know that what we need to accomplish can only be done one day at a time.
