I BEAT THEM (and you can too)

When I originally wrote this, I was sitting in a California airport heading back home to Texas.

I was returning from another trip from California after attending a Business Mastermind Group that I was a part of.

I revisit this writing on occasion and today was one of those days.

What I wrote is below, and while I hope you enjoy it, more so, I hope you are inspired to take action in your life and business.

Life is short my friends.

Post begins here…

I’ve been to California 6 times in the last 7 months for this training….Late yesterday evening after 2 days of Masterminding with my Coach and Mastermind group, I went for a swim in the Ocean late at night.

The sun had set, it was pitch dark except for the partial light provided by the moon and I was alone on the beach and swimming in the cold, actually, extremely cold waters.

As I was floating and swimming in the Ocean, I began to reflect on:

….WHERE MY LIFE USED TO BE

…..AND…..

WHERE MY LIFE IS TODAY….

When I thought about where I first started my journey into being an Entrepreneur, I literally started WITH NOTHING.

When I started out, my wife and I were just getting to a position where we had paid off all of our debt (student loans, credit cards, etc) and had NO MONEY in the Bank at that point in our lives, living in our tiny apartment.

BUT I DID HAVE THESE 2 THINGS:

A DREAM & A DRIVE

So, with that, I used a Credit Card to purchase my 1st investment property…and the rest is ‘history’…

So, as I was swimming in the Ocean last night and began to reflect on my life…

At first, I experienced a great sense of gratitude and accomplishment, but it was quickly replaced by another thought that instantly came into my mind when I had this thought:

I BEAT THEM

Who did I BEAT?

~~> MY LIMITING BELIEFS AND SELF-DOUBT

You see, years ago when I first began to dream about leaving my job and being an entrepreneur, becoming a real estate investor and living a life I could only dream of, I spent a lot of time FIGHTING & BATTLING Defeating thoughts like:

~~~ “I’m not smart enough”

~~~ “I’m not capable of that”

~~~ “I can’t do this”

~~~ “I don’t have any money”

~~~ “I don’t know anything about real estate”

~~~ “I should just settle and be thankful for what I have…”

~~~ “I’ll never be able to live that life”

….and about a thousand other negative/limiting thoughts….

BUT Another Voice from within Spoke UP AND said:

YES YOU CAN

And last night while swimming in the ice cold salty waters of the Pacific Ocean, that thought came into my mind:

I BEAT THEM.

I BATTLED THE LIMITING THOUGHTS AND WON.

Do I still FIGHT these same, negative types of thoughts and doubts?

YES.

EVERY DAY.

But I have created a life that I dreamed of, and I’m extremely proud.

And yes, I’m aware that these outcomes would have been possible by me alone.

So I acknowledge and express appreciation for all who have helped, encouraged and supported me along the way.

Especially my Wife Tara, and our Team.

We create nothing worthwhile alone.

And as I move forward in life and business, still committed to grow, learn and expand even more, I still battle limiting thoughts, beliefs and fears that I still fight with to this day.

Every day.

Why do I share this?

I suspect there are a few of you out there as well that are battling with similar limiting beliefs, self-doubt, fear, uncertainty, and all kinds of mental and logistical challenges that have slowed down or stopped your progress all together.

Where are you at?

Are you battling the thoughts, or did you tap out?

Are you building a team around you to help and support you while holding you accountable to your goals?

My friend, you will never win the prize if you lose the battle in your mind.

Don’t give up the fight.

Don’t let go of the dream you once had.

See it. Believe It. Achieve it.

Turn off Social Media.

Cancel your Netflix account.

Rekindle the Flame of your dreams and goals.

Write them down.

Commit to your exciting objectives.

Silence your fears.

Get to work

And attack ‘THEM’.

All of them.

Attack your plans and dreams with focus and relentlessness

Battle your limiting thoughts and fears by flooding and overwhelming them with knowledge, action, experience and daily affirming mantras and prayer that destroy the foothold that you’ve allowed them to take within you until ‘they’ tap out.

This is how you Win and you beat them.

That’s all my friends, go get it.
