What will you do over the next few days to make your life better?
Will you learn something new?
Will you take a risk?
Those are tough questions for many people in all walks of life. Why?
Most people would rather stay where they are in life than try to make it better.
Most people are afraid to try new things.
Most people don't want to admit to themselves their life could be a little better.
Most people don't want to do the work necessary to make their lives better.
BUT the biggest reason I could find is that most people are afraid of change. Any type of change makes most people afraid.
I am not afraid of change or taking risks. I know that if I don't change things or take risks then I won't achieve my big goal - moving to Vancouver Island by late October.
I want that so badly I have to change. I have to take risks. I have to make sacrifices. I have to give up some things that I enjoy for a little while. I have to expand my comfort zone. I have to learn new things. I have to spend some money. I have to change what I am doing and push myself. I have made the commitment to do all these things and this has been a good week.
Last Sunday I committed to a new business venture in addition to what I am doing already. I am making the time to do it by giving up things I enjoy. I am staying motivated by learning and speaking with other motivated people. It has taken work but already I am seeing success. I took a risk and it is paying off.
Sitting here on a Friday morning I feel very good and energized. I am very confident that I will achieve the goal of moving to Vancouver Island by late October. Yes, I am dipping into the happy sauce... I am taking shots of PMA with A.
(What's that? Positive Mental Attitude and Activity. I recommend it to everybody who wants to feel better.)
In my new venture I have had people cancel appointments at the last minute or not show up. At one time (like a few weeks ago) that would have disappointed me and knocked me off my mindset a little bit. This week it hasn't affected my attitude at all. As my goal grows more real and I see success from what I am doing I am stronger mentally.
Giving up some time freedom right now means my wife and I will have more time freedom in the future. I don't want her to die stuck in a job she doesn't really like.
Is there a goal that you want to achieve? What are you willing to give up or do to have it? What do you want bad enough to take a risk? What do you want bad enough that it is your mind every day? Can I help you reach it?
I believe that by helping other people achieve their goals I will achieve mine. I also know that I need to take risks. In fact in the next few words I am taking a huge risk. I risk loss of readers, I risk loss of contacts, I risk loss of credibility, I risk embarrassing myself, I risk failure but these are small risks compared to the risk of not achieving my goal.
Will you help me reach my goal? How?
I am looking for people who want to save money, help others save money, support food banks without spending any extra money and make money. Do you know someone that would be interested in doing these things? Would you like me to show you how to do these things? I can only work with a few people at a time and I don't know everything yet so I have the people who are teaching me help when they are available.
Want to know more? Contact me by clicking here and telling me when you would like to get together.
How can I help you save money?
I can't guarantee it without sitting down with you and comparing your phone, cable, internet, power and gas bill to what I can offer. I may even be able to show you a way to get some of these services for free. We won't know until we do a little math. Contact me by clicking here and telling me when you would like to get together.
How can you help support food banks without spending any extra money?
By using one or more of the services I provide and paying your bill. The company I'm working with donates money to food banks every time you pay your bill. In today's economy that can be the difference between a food bank being being open or closing it's doors. Contact me by clicking here and telling me when you would like to get together.
How can I help you make money? Contact me by clicking here and telling me when you would like to get together.
What risks are you taking by contacting me?
You might learn something new. You might save some money. You might discover a way to help food banks. You might discover that I am a dreamer and a worker. You might discover that you like what I am doing and want to help and be part of of it. Your life may change. Nothing will change.
By not contacting me what risks are you taking?
You might spend more money than other people for the same things. You might not learn anything. Your life may change. A child may miss a meal. You might not save any money. Nothing will change.

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." T. E. Lawrence
I hope the next week brings you joy and prosperity,
