By Sunday, August 1, 2010, I will have, in my possession, 25,000 dollars of my own money which will come to me through various means and throughout the interim. In return for this money, I will render the most efficient service through which I am capable of, produce the fullest possible quantity, and deliver the highest quality possible in the capacity of salesmanship Insurance services. This is simply not 25,000 dollars falling from the sky into my lap. Rather, I will work and EARN this money. I will devise plans that lead me to my desired amount of money and I will follow through on them and take action. Along with the specialized knowledge that I have gained through the Insurance Pro Shop Bootcamp that I have taken earlier, I will continue my education to increase both my quality and quantity of Insurance salesmanship.
By Monday, August 2, 2010, I will have moved out of my house and signed the lease on my apartment located at 17th Street Loft Apartments. Ever since moving to college, I have had the chance to experience "true freedom" where I have been completely responsible for my actions. Moving back home for the summer has REALLY stifled me as a person. It is the same feeling as Freedom Lost. I feel like I've lost my freedom by moving back, and I know that staying at my house is not something I intend on doing forever. The sooner I can move out, the better. It's great, but it's time for me to grow as a person.
On Wednesday, August 18, 2010, I will be in Austin, Texas for my Real Social Dynamics bootcamp. Since I have experienced first hand the valuable content and experience that this company provides, it is my highest priority to attend. I am going here in order to learn social skills, about relationships, dating, expressing my authentic self, and living in abundance with women. I know that there are a lot of men in this world that live in scarcity when it comes to women, but I want to choose a different life for myself. Since I've experienced RSD firsthand, I know that this is the BEST possible learning experience that I could ever have for myself and I'm wanting to get this area of my life HANDLED. Not only will this bootcamp influence the way that I interact with women, but it breaks down the basic principles for any and every social interaction. Therefore, not only my dating life will be improved, but also my sales career, and my personal relationships with people.
When am I doing it? What is the timeframe?
The specified time plan occurs between the dates of June 1st, 2010 and August 21st, 2010. While the major events have been listed out, there will also have to be dates included for travel and extra events that I intend on doing but have not specified as "main events".
The month of June is going to be me kicking things into high gear and setting up the basic structures of how I want things to work out. June will be considered my Personal Education month as I'll be exposed to new ideas and new concepts. The month of July is going to be me implementing those structures and refining them and really increasing my ability to earn financially in the future. This will be a month of massive personal and professional growth as I'll be spending most of my time tweaking and optimizing my income stream with Insurance. The month of August will continue the growth that has occurred during June and July, but will be the month where I begin to branch off into my own. I'll be making many of my own decisions autonomously, but will be geared towards professional and emotional growth.
Included is a calendar that gives a visual representation of what I plan on doing.
Why? Why am I am going to follow through 100% with these?
I am going to follow through 100% with these plans because they are my destiny, really. It's up to me to take my passion and make it happen. I feel as if though I've never been truly tested for my strength and I want to give the ABSOLUTE BEST towards a project that I know is a stretch beyond my current capabilities. I've never done the things that I plan on doing before, and I want to truly test the waters on the quote, "Whatever the human mind can conceive, and believe, then it can achieve".
In my life, I have READ of great feats accomplished by men with little or no resources. When I read these stories, there is a deep soul conviction that I, too, can achieve the great things that I have read about. I KNOW that if I put myself to a task, I would be able to accomplish what others would be consider "impossible".
In addition, I think of my piano skill set. Since I've been playing for 3 or 4 years, mainly without a teacher, I've taught myself a variety of pieces. I've learned pieces that others have considered to be "impossible" to learn on one's own. However, when I perform these pieces in front of people, they are not only amazed by the fact that I've learned such difficult pieces, but they are doubly amazed at the fact that I was able to teach me these things.
I consider myself to have a very unique learning style. Everyone has their own, but here's mine: I am usually able to get started on my own, but I might need some initial help when starting on a massive project or a new endeavor. I don't need constant supervision, but just help whenever I come to a sticking point and I have tried everything that I can to overcome the obstacle that I'm facing. Most of the time, I am creative enough to come up with a solution by myself, but since I don't have the answers, I turn to people who have EXPERIENCE in whatever I'm dealing with. Although everyone who has their own contributions that they can give, I tend not to get advice from people who are (what I call) skeptics/critics. They tend to dissuade others to their way of thinking even though it might not work. Sometimes, asking for or getting advice from these people is like asking a homeless beggar of the street, "What is the best way to make money?" They might give you a decent answer, "Go to school, get your education", however, for me that isn't enough.
I'm on a quest for specific knowledge.
From experience, I've learned that when people have already had the success that I'm looking for, I can learn a WEALTH of information from them because it is first hand experience. I value learning from others when they have experienced something first hand and can teach it to me without bias and allow me to take from it what would help me most. But I digress...
With this specialized knowledge, although I am already doing well, it will only take ONE sound idea for me to get extreme success in my endeavors. I've seen what learning through immersion has to offer and I KNOW that it is the QUICKEST way to grow and gain experience in a field. The ideas that I'll learn will EASILY pay off in the short term, but will pay off EVEN MORE in the long term. Therefore, I think that I should invest my time where it will pay off for me most in the future.
The cost might be significant at first, but the returns will be immeasurable. Like a farmer, we must spend money on our seeds, but a full grown crop will yield 100 times the cost of the seed. Educating myself in this way is me planting seeds that will yield crops of abundance.
Am I going to go back to college?
From an intuitive, rational, and entrepreneurial standpoint, it wouldn't. Simply put, going back would mean a delay in "harvesting the crops" that are available to me. When opportunity knocks, it is our job to answer. Sometimes, we've got to go against the grain to achieve what we really want. Generally, whenever we do what no one expects us to do, we achieve a result that is far greater than anything expected.
We aim for the impossible to achieve the incredible.
What are the commitments that I'm going to follow through on?
Since I realize the need for massive change in myself, here is what I plan on implementing in my life habit-wise.
I am going to wake up at 5 AM every single morning. Basically put, I know that this is a habit that will make me successful. I'll get more done before Noon than most people do in a day.
I'm going to spend around an hour a day outside. I know that being outdoors, especially in natural sunlight effects me very positively, so I'll do this both for health and mental reasons.
I'm going to keep my bed made whenever I'm not in it and maintain a general sense of organization in my room. In addition, I'm going to clean the *ENTIRE* house since it has been something we've been meaning to do since the day that we moved in here. I know from personal experience that whenever there is physical cleanliness and "clutter" is completely removed, then a great sense of flow comes about in ways that we could never expect.
Everyday, I'm going to either call somebody or write them a letter (No email or facebook; doing this the old fashioned way) saying how much I appreciate them and everything they've done for me. This is just to increase my own gratitude for others, but also to make somebody else's day. I know that there have been many times in my life where my spirits have been uplifted by the kind words of others. I hope to have the same impact on others.
