Who is the person I want to become?
Have I made it yet?
Not even close. I have accomplished a lot, but there is still a lot I need to work on. Every so often I think that I have overcome my insecurities and then they crawl back up.
1. A cash flowing business owner
I have few different sources of income and I own 2 properties, but I don't really have a business that I run that brings in cash flow.
2. A salesperson
The salesperson at my current business was really impressed by the software demo that I recorded. And honestly I was proud of it. I know the software inside and out.
But more important, I know what problems the software is supposed to solve.
But guess what, I'm not a salesperson.
I have never really been good at getting people to purchase anything. Or at least I have yet to master that skill.
I want to be the person that has a product that they really love and enjoy and then I want to sell that product.
3. A writer
I know that I have a book inside me. I just need to make it a priority and a reality.
4. Someone in better shape
I have been in great shape before and I know that I can get back to that place. I have just made other things a priority at the moment.
5. A better friend
The way that I met my spouse was attending different events. We met at a birthday party. I would attend events and host events. Dinners, nights out, holiday parties etc.
I need to be more proactive about my calendar and scheduling social times with people that I want to incorporate into my life.
6. A reader
I want to get to the place where I am reading both fiction and nonfiction again. Maybe switch off reading one book and then another.
I have always found books to be inspiring, they make me think different, they create new ideas and they just make me love life more.
There are a million tiny items on my to do list that are necessary, but that I just do not want to do.
I should go through and get those done.
8. More secure
My insecurities get the better of me a lot of times.
When I was in high school I ran for class treasurer or class president, I do not remember. What I remember is making a speech in front of the entire school. Everyone was there. Students, teachers, staff. And after I gave the speech it was all that anyone could talk about. Everyone that did not know my name before knew it after that speech.
It was a great speech so of course I won.
What made it a great speech.
- what's in it for me
It had all the elements.
Except that the faculty did not like it.
A lady that look like a frog, let's call her frog lady, called me into her office and told me that my speech was offensive and that even though I won the race, they were not going to give me the office.
You stepped out of the line.
I know that I could be a great speaker. I just need to find ways to get back on that stage and deliver.
10. Profitable YouTuber
It has been a dream of mine for years. And I know it will happen in time. I just have to get there.
