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?
