Another 10 days

So I finished another 10 day cycle a couple days ago. And yes, I admit, I am still struggling to write my updates in a timely fashion. Some might say that I am taking on too much, but I want to take on much and then grow to meet it. Not whittle down my aspirations into mediocrity. But I did have a near perfect 10-day run.

The best part is, things are starting to spill over. I had one of the best weeks in my career that I have had in a long time. Introducing myself to new prospects, showing people how to overcome their debt burdens, and having a passion for my work that isn’t hiding behind fears or doubts. It’s hard to explain to people outside my industry, but just firing on all cylinders and feeling accomplished I guess. Still some areas that need improving, but it’s all coming together and feels right again.

My workouts have been amazing too and the weight scale has started moving in the right direction again. I missed very few workouts throughout everything going on the last several weeks and it has shown. I feel good. I did plateau, mostly because of my diet, but that’s coming back in line too. I am not saying it’s perfect by any means, you may see me at the Taco Bell drive thru, but they have power bowls right?

I keep toying with the idea of treating what I am doing with this blog as a journal. I do journal every single day, I rarely miss. But I also put my doubts and frustrations into that. It’s my way of releasing those I guess, and don’t know that I want to exude that side of things into the world when there is definitely more than enough negativity anywhere you look already. I chose love and positivity for what I want to bring to the world.

But anyways, I just wanted to check in with all who still follow me and let you know I am doing great. I hope you are too. I will grow into posting and updating as often as I should soon. But in the meantime, whatever you are doing to improve your life and the lives of those around you-KEEP GOING!

Lastly, there’s a lesson I am working on learning from things I’ve come across the past several days. Those who follow me know that I struggled greatly with the loss of two wonderful people, my mom and dad. I was talking with someone recently who had walked this same path, and the words she spoke into me can be greatly summed up in this:

This is an excellent way to honor those we miss.

So it’s the Big 4-0

I guess turning 40 is supposed to be a sad or depressing time or at least some people see it that way. I can remember my mom turning 40 and the people at work got her a cake with a tombstone that said “Lordy, Lordy Cleo’s 40” and my young mind couldn’t grasp why that was such a big deal. I still honestly kind of wonder why it is a big deal. I mean, I feel kind of renewed in a lot of ways lately. Kind of like my best years are right in front of me. I still have a lot of things to work on, but working on myself these last few months has REALLY made a difference in my mindset.

I haven’t been reporting my progress like I should, but have been keeping up with my Daily10 each day. I keep finding tweaks and changes to make them work better for me. They have, for the most part, become such a habit that I haven’t been keeping up with the “streaks” like I was when I started all of this. So with this being my birthday, this is as good a day as any to restart the tracking with “Day 1” and get back to posting about my wins and losses. I may even start treating this more as a journal-type thing than sporadic posts since I already journal daily anyways, we will see how that goes.

A Renewed Vision

One thing that has greatly been on my mind with my “coming of age” is what I want to leave for the world. This blog is mostly for me and for my own sense of accomplishment through hoping to inspire someone else. But it is still only about me in a sense. I do help people every day with different types of insurance and financial products. IF the time comes that life insurance, disability, or critical illness policies are needed, they will be glad they met with me but hopefully those people never have to use it. My customers use their health insurance every day, but who thinks of their agent when their doctor bill gets paid? This has really had me doing some soul-searching on my focus moving forward.

I definitely want to keep doing (almost) everything that I am now as far as vocationally. But, I also REALLY want to focus on the Debt Free Life product that I am a representative with. I mean it is something that almost everyone can use as almost everybody has debt. Even someone without any debt could benefit from the guaranteed growth and “becoming your own bank” aspect of this program.

With that being said, I want to make it my “mission” to introduce my program to enough people to help pay off $250 MILLION in debt. Not in a year or 5 years by any means but since we are on average $250k in debt, I will have to help 1,000 households through this program. That’s just under 40 a year, working through retirement age, which is very doable.

I also hope to introduce other agents, advisors, and even hire new ones to expand that mission. This sounds like a mlm or “get rich quick” scheme, but it’s not. It’s math, albeit not simple, which is why I have software to break it down into a system anyone can understand and follow.

That’s enough for today, I just wanted to let you all know as you may see “cross-posts” between what I am doing in my life as well as how my Debt Free Life program can help others. Remember, reaching greatness means reaching your potential in every area of your life which will include finances so I am not off the mark of my original intentions.

As always, thank you all for reading and for the birthday wishes!

40 is the new 25 right?

Loved my cake this year!
