I am beginning a new journal after the reality check of searching for my old journal. As of today it has been 1year and 2weeks since i started with the Dean G family. I have learned a lot but haven't taken the action to get the results that i need. My situation is still terrible and i am more desperate than ever. I am not going to say that i have done nothing, just not enough. I am a notorious "pressure cooker personality". Things get bad and i really want something to change, i take action and as soon as i do i feel good and kind of just stop. My second reality check was when Dean released his empowering conversations package. I instantly saw the value in it, but my wife....well....not so much. We ended up getting into an argument about it. She had a point and i had to relent, she called me out on all the other Dean Graziosi products i have and how i hadn't gotten any results. (if not yet a success story i am at least a steady customer) I explained to her that my results had nothing to do with the quality of the training it was how i personally applied them. I said that i know I'm just not focused enough. Then she hit me with "so what is it then WE (herself and my kids) aren't enough motivation for you to do it?" honestly that part hurt a little. We patched things up later as we try to stick to a strict don't go to sleep angry policy. She told me some of the things she was afraid of and it really solidified my desire to become a success in real estate.
I don't think of myself as a lazy person. I work a lot of hours, in fact i just dropped my second job from full to part time to give myself more time to devote to RE. I have a lot of interests some being science, natural health, inventing, conservation, music, politics, all of which i frequently get sucked into. And ironically all of which i can't do as fully as i would like, do to lack of money. I believe that since receiving the "E.D.G.E" package that Real Estate has truly become my number one interest and i have had many of what Dean would call plateaus of success. I have a phone line with different extensions (foreclosures,probates, motivated sellers & buyers). I have a company name and logo that i still have to get registered with the state. I am almost done with the Probate website but i have to call and get help with some of the details. Most importantly i have four legitimate buyers on my list and I am working to get more. I think one of the hardest things for me so far is accepting the fact that this is something that i can do.
So now i come to the real reason for restarting my journal and to the part that the Dean G family can really help me out with. Even though i am highly focused at this particular moment there is no guarantee that i wont get comfortable or caught up down the road. Dean talks about the mentors helping to keep you accountable, but that only helps if you call them (which i have and they are always very helpful). The only problem i have is that i feel strange taking up there time unless i have a specific problem that they can help me with. So here is where i am pledging to use this site to journal something everyday (they will be much shorter than this post) weather i have done anything or not and ask the Dean G family to keep me accountable. I respect the knowledge and opinions of everyone on this site and truly wish to be one of the successes that other people look to for guidance. Like a real family i don't care if you're polite, if you feel I'm slipping give me your virtual version of a kick in the back side. Seriously, this may be a hobby or some extra cash on the side for some people, but not me. I have to change my life, and I've chosen Real Estate as my vehicle. My marriage and the financial welfare of my family hang in the balance. Thanks.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. -Mark 11:23-
-Now who are you to say it can't be done?-
