The Adventure of a Lifetime - a 19 Year Old's Quest
I'm excited that this is the first of the month, and now, I'm going to be writing the most important document that I have EVER written so far.
This is going to be a letter and also a forum entry.
The Master Blueprint of Alexander The Great
So I've been out of college for the past 20 days or so. I've made a moderate amount of progress, but it has been EXTREMELY slow as compared to what I know that I'm capable of. The following note is a description of the promises that I'm making to myself and everything that I plan on doing in the next 90 days. I'm ready to kick everything into high gear and I'm starting to demand the MOST out of myself.
So now, I have to ask myself, what is it that I'm trying to say here?
Why am I writing this in the first place?
So whenever I left college, I thought that I was going to be in the most productive state of my life. Meaning that, I'd be able from all the distractions and things that would take away focus from me doing the things I wanted to do. Needless to say, when I arrived back home, I forgot the Basic Principle of State Transference. It goes along the lines of Newton's Laws of Motion that state, "An object at rest remains at rest unless acted upon by an outside force. And an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force." The Basic Principle of State Transference state, "Although an individual may change location, his emotional state and focus will remain the same unless consciously changed through thought and feeling."
So whenever I came home, I was expecting to work hard on blogging, but because I had been in a semi-passive state for a while, my Mental Muscles hadn't been activated at all. Only after I started to use my imagination did things start coming alive in my mind.
I am writing this because this is my pledge for MASSIVE ACTION. I haven't been living up to my potential, and I've crossed the tipping point in my life and I realize that NOW is the time to grow. I've been "waiting" until I'm up for the task, but I know that *ACTION always comes before the State*
Because I'm at a critical point in my life, I've realized a couple things. One, I need to grow up, take responsibility, and become a man. While the habits that have served me for the past 19 years might have carried me through childhood, during that time, I was relying on other people to take care of me. Now, I have to slowly start switching my reliance on others to reliance on myself. This comes through taking responsibility for my life, my choices, my actions, and whatever results I have in my life.
It's time to grow up.
What am I doing? What are the plans that I have laid out for myself?
In the next 90 days, I have laid out the most intense schedule for growth in every possible aspect. Even thinking about it gets me nervous in a way because it is a gargantuan plan that I have set in motion, but it will be worthwhile every step of the way. In the next 90 days, I am going to undergo more personal growth than I ever have in my life, but it is all based on a burning desire that I have inside myself to really TRANSFORM my life.
It feels like I've been playing level 2 all this time, but now it's time to kick it up to level 3, so here it is.
On Tuesday, June 1, 2010, I'm going to get a job at Staples to provide me with an income that I can work for and funnel into my business and personal growth endeavors. This is not going to be permanent, but this is going to get the ball rolling so that I can make enough money to pay for my basic expenses.
On Monday, June 7, 2010, I'm going to take and pass my Property and Casualty Licensing Exam for Insurance. I'm going to pass with flying colors through diligence and studying both hard smart for this exam. I NEED this License so that I can start selling insurance for Auto, Home, and Others. After I take the test, I will be applying the same day to get my license and I should have it in a very short amount of time. I've already gone through the pre-licensing course, so everything I'm doing is dependent upon when I can take this test.
Through Friday, June 11 to Monday, June 14, I'm going to be attending a Life and Health Insurance Course taught by JW Richardson. This course will be 40 hours and is mandatory for me to get my Life and Health Insurance License. I will have already studied in advance, so I plan on this simply being a "review" session for me.
On Tuesday, June 15th, I'm going to take my Life, Accident, and Sickness Exam and pass with flying colors. Since I will have already have been studying since the end of my Property and Casualty exam and already gone through the 40 hour Course, I plan on taking this as soon as possible simply because the information will already have been on my mind and I'll be ready to just "get it over with". I'll be applying the same day for my license, so I will get my official license very shortly afterwards.
On Wednesday, June 23 through Thursday, June 24, I will be attending the Insurance Pro Shop Bootcamp in Atlanta, Georgia which will give me the basics on how to be successful in the Insurance Industry and will give me the tools and techniques for both Marketing and Sales that I'll need in order to get started successfully in this industry. This is "specialized" knowledge in the field of insurance. Since I will already have gone through the courses to get my licenses, this will be the next step that I will have to take. Even though this is NOT mandatory by the State of Georgia, I know that if I plan on becoming the best, then I have got to learn from the best. This course will serve as a full immersion into the entire marketing system for Insurance and is NECESSARY if I even plan on being successful in this field. Although I could learn all of these things on my own, it would take a lot longer, be MUCH more frustrating, and would not be efficient in my time, energy, and money. I plan on sitting in the front row of this Seminar Bootcamp, taking the best notes that I can, drawing up a plan for how to successfully implement these into my Insurance sales, and implementing them into action the DAY that I leave the Seminar Bootcamp. I know the value of education, and I KNOW that this course will payoff both professionally and financially VERY quickly. This is essentially an investment in technology, marketing, and my understanding of how the world works in the field of insurance.
On Friday, July 16 through Sunday, July 18, I will be attending Steve Pavlina's Conscious Growth Workshop in Las Vegas, Nevada. This workshop will not only help me grow as a person, but also as an entrepreneur, and will help me refine the type of contribution that I want to give to the world. I have already read his book, "Personal Development for Smart People", so I know that he delivers valuable content. It would behoove me to attend this as I would not only be able to network with like minded individuals with a similar interest in personal growth, but I know I would make some lifelong connections simply from attending and meeting some new people.
