So I filled out the questionnaire to see if I would be selected, fully expecting to never even hear back from Brant. I was totally surprised that within a day I got a call from Brant. We talked and he told me the cost. That is when the voice came back and said, “I told you, you’re broke, you can’t do this, what the hell were you thinking?”. But then a calm came over me and said, “Jeff you have no choice, if you want to move forward in life, you have to go.”
On a personal level, I am daily doing the ‘Work’ as you taught us to do by: praying, journaling, spending quality time with my family to create loving/memorable moments, I’m drinking my green smoothies and exercising!
Before Breakthrough, I felt I was good all of these, but I soon realized that I was coming up short in all of them.
I went to church services weekly, but Faith is not about going to church, it is about how you live your life with God. How you listen and follow his destined path for you. I spent my life trying to do things my way without faith, Either paralyzed by the fear voice or knocking down doors I had no business in. I have a deeper sense of Faith now, I still go to services, but they are more meaningful now, not just going through the motions. I Listen more, in order to Know more.
I am dating a beautiful woman who I love very much. I have 1 son married to a wonderful daughter in-law. I also have 2 daughters, 2 granddaughters & 2 dogs. Before Breakthrough I would be hit and miss, if anybody needed anything I was there, but as a family we really were not connected anymore. Each kid had moved out and was making their way in the world. Now I at least talk to them as well as my parents & siblings weekly. I make the time to be in their life. The time with them now is just so much more enjoyable then before Breakthrough. My relationships with them are so much stronger now.
Before Breakthrough my fitness was hit and miss. My girlfriend had showed me the proper way to eating better, but I was very hit and miss on my workout routine. Now I continue to eat right but I also have upped my workouts. I currently am training to Ride in the ‘Hotter–N–Hell’ 100 mile bicycle ride here in Wichita Falls at the end of August. Before Breakthrough I would never even have attempted it.
Before Breakthrough I could only dream of a better way of life. I was living basically pay check to pay check, just staying even. While I was able to help my family out when they got into financial crisis, the money was not there to enjoy life. Breakthrough has put me on that path!!! I will be signing papers and getting the keys to TWO homes this week. One I will flip after it is rehabbed for a profit in the neighborhood of $25,000 and the other I will be renting with positive cash flow each month.
Before Breakthrough this would not have been possible, I would have let the unknown stop me. I would say the factory is good to me, it is stable, you have put in 30 years, surely you are not going to throw that away are you? I would not have fought through the fears of failure. The FEARS, HOLDING ONTO THE PAST, BEATING MYSELF UP OVER PAST MISTAKES, all these things were real before Breakthrough.
They are still real, but I am able to see them, to recognize them up front now. So now I listen and proceed because of the learning in the Breakthrough Brotherhood.
