I know I know I know. Panic and fear set in and you’re NOT going to pick up that phone. But one of my colleagues told me that “your success is on the other side of the fear” Are you going to let it slip away? Great question right? So I sucked it up and told myself that I wasn’t going to let my success just slip away without a fight. You have to clear your mind because I know that the fear is only perceived. It is not as bad as you think it is. That is truly your mind playing tricks on you (Your Ego) to keep you where you are so you don’t move forward. I allowed my fear of making phone calls stop me and I won’t let my fear have that kind of power of me. I get pissed off and I refuse to let it win. If that’s what you have to do — get pissed off– and don’t let your fear win. It won’t be as bad as you think it is. Pick up the phone.
I placed an ad in craigslist for an Investor and someone answered my ad. I was a little nervous but I called him and spoke and we will see if we can help each other. I know I can learn a lot from him and I am willing to learn. That wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t call after he responded to my ad.
You can do it. Wherever you are right now. Don’t let the anticipation stop you from moving forward.
You can do it. I know you can.
Have you made that first sale? Still have some fear? I am going to tell you that the only thing that will defeat that fear is taking a step toward what you want. I promise you, you will be so glad that you did. You will be so glad that you have that behind you now and all you will want to do is take that next step into your greatness. I PROMISE YOU.
How do I know? Because that’s where I am right now. I can’t wait to do my next deal. I am making more calls. I am talking to more people. It is almost like magic. Since I broke through the fear I am Unstoppable. At least that’s how I feel right now at this moment. Nobody waited longer than I did. If I can do it you can too. I used to read other people’s articles who used those same words and I thought they were just saying that to sell more of whatever they might have been selling but I tell you I’m not selling anything and it is the truth. I can’t do it any justice by writing about it only to the extent that I am sharing my experience via the written word. Now you have to take that leap of faith and find out for yourself.
WHAT’s THE PLAN? Step out on Faith and start writing about it. I’d love to read it.
Your Energy May Always Yield ACTION!
AND HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Why is it stopping you and what can you do about it? Let’s talk about. Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad Poor Dad fame says that fear is False Evidence Appearing Real so we should Fail Early and Responsibly so that we can make our mistakes early in our career and keep it moving. But Fear has held so many of us back from taking that first step and/or seeking the help of experts who can help you do that. I must admit that it took me a while and a lot of reading and growing individually to change my thinking to understand the value and benefit of paying for expertise in helping you get where you want to go. So many of our friends or family members will say things like, “you gonna spend $500 on something stupid like that?” “Are you crazy?” What’s wrong with you?” And questions like that will especially from people who are in your circle of influence and you value what they say and how they feel about you will make you doubt yourself and change your mind.
I must admit I have not done my first deal yet and it’s pissing me off. Why haven’t I done a deal yet? My first deal at that? I was thinking about that the other day and it really made me angry at myself for letting so much time pass and STILL haven’t gotten a deal done yet. Well, to put it in plain English I’m Scared. There is something that is holding me back and I can feel it inside. I can’t yet identify it but I know that it’s me and nobody but me.
The saying goes “There’s nothing to fear but fear itself” and that may very well be true but for me I can feel it from the inside out and it just stops me I mean it knocks me out. It wells up in me and it stops me cold and I retreat. That’s why I’ve been paying for coaching monthly but since I don’t have my computer, I have not been able to access on a daily basis; actually since I signed up for my coaching so it has been very difficult for me to get over that hump of fear. I don’t know about you guys but I need help and I’m no longer afraid to ask for the help that I need. I also don’t feel bad about needing the help either because I want to reach a level that I have never reached before and I need the expertise of those who have done it already in order to achieve my goals.
I’m scared as hell but I’m going to keep moving in that direction until I get there and I hope you will do the same.

Yes, embrace the fear and change the name of the fear to TURBO. Yes, TURBO. Master Nigel Henry of Mastery Unleashed says that Fear is really TURBO propelling you to your Greatness so Embrace It, Feel It, Let it flow through you and propel you to your greatness and complete the task.
For me that task is my first deal. Since I learned to change the way I think about fear with some help from Master Henry Nigel, I don’t feel as terrified on the inside of tackling this issue and actually moving forward one step at a time and getting my first deal done. I’ve gone over the process and steps of it a thousand times in my head and now I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired and am determined to make it happen. There is a house down the block from me that is abandoned and I’ve written the owner once. I’m going to write the owner again and see if I can get this deal done– My first one. I’ll keep you posted.
Believing in yourself can be challenging especially if you had some challenges with yourself all along. Some people never have those issues and they skyrocket or they don’t let it show and they are very anxious when they’re alone but when they step out in public they put it on. I have ebbed and flowed with my belief in myself and I realize like I said in my last post that Mike Dillard of Magnetic Sponsoring wrote, “Belief Always Comes Before Results“. That was definitely worth repeating. You must believe in yourself before you see the results you desire. I’m working on that a little every day but being mindful of the fact that I am worthy and I do believe in myself even though I’m scared. But I’ll take my fear with me and go anyway. As a matter of fact,I’ve adopted something I’d like to share. According to my good friend, Master Nigel Henry, fear is really turbo yes turbo that will propel you to your greatness so don’t fear it, don’t run away from it. Embrace it. It’s a good thing.
Well, I’ve got to get ready and hit the streets and share with the public the upcoming seminar I’ve put together about the FHA203K Rehab Loan and how it can help them get the dream home they may want. I’m feeling turbo here so let me go and do that.
Until next time,

I am. I have been thinking for a few days about why I’m so afraid to step out on faith and I asked myself do I believe in myself. I do believe in myself but my fear is holding me back or I’m allowing my fear to hold me back. I know I need to learn to get out of my own way and step forward. Then I said I’m struggling trying to make it work. Well darnit I’ve been struggling for quite some time now and it is time to sh** or get off the pot. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m going to find a way to get what I want – now. I realize that I’m afraid to be in the spot light. I’m afraid to be the center of attention. I am truly an introvert. However, this will not serve me in my quest to be an entrepreneur. I have to learn to move past this. I’ve found that I’ve been holding on to my struggle like a blanket and it’s time to let it go. To that end, I said if I’m going to be a successful agent or investor than I have to immerse myself in this completely. I told you that I was being let go from my j-o-b next week so I have no excuse. But I must tell you that I am petrified but that’s ok. I’m more aware of my feelings while moving in this direction and I’m asking myself the hard questions. I get a knot in the pit of my stomach when I think of being in the spotlight – out in front with what I feel is no net — and that scares the hell out of me but I will take my time and step-by-step move in the direction that I want to go. To that end, I found a great ebook online to help me get my first clients and build a database. It’s not complicated but it will take me stepping out of my comfort zone to make it work and that’s where the fear comes in. Moving out of my comfort zone IS indeed the most terrifying this for me. However, I realize that this is part of the process. Fear and failure are part of the process of moving toward success. So I will keep my lumps and learn.
I’ll keep you posted. Until Next time
To Your Journey To Success,
