If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan.
And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.- Jim Rohn

Mark Gorman's getting package came in and after listening to every single one of them TWICE his messages have rekindled
a fire inside of me! Every now and then we just need a little
spark to ignite us again don't we? Our flame starts to damper
a bit because of frustrations and discouragements. You know
what I'm talking about right?
One of the things he says is to Dream BIG. In fact, you've got to have a dream SO big that you cannot even achieve it and THEN..... BECOME the person who CAN!
Over the last nine years I've grown and become the leader that God wants me to be and I'm still growing.
Here's how I keep the flame going....
by attending events, hanging out with successful people,
listening to training calls and the business briefing calls,
reading books, reading scripture, listening to CD's with
people on fire with the spirit like Mark Gorman! Sponsoring
more people and teaching them to do exactly the same so
THEY will grow into the person to achieve THEIR dreams!
Over five years ago we had a dream to buy lake property in Austin Texas on Lake Travis. Today that dream hascome true. We just bought a lake house in Point Venture Texas at Lake Travis. How did this happen? Did I justwake up one day and say I have a dream to go up to Austin and I'm gonna buy a lake house today? Not quite!
It happened because I literally became the person capable of achieving that dream! Over the years, I worked hard, stay focused, committed, put on the blinders, went through the refining fire, frustrations, dissapointments, and most of all never gave up!
We almost didn't buy this house either because the first time I saw it I noticed a huge dirt pile behind the house.
This house is on the lake side but when you go in the back yard there's a dirt pile behind it. I told my husband I don't want to buy a house by the lake and sit in my back yard looking at dirt!!!
So we never looked inside that house the weekendwe were there in Austin looking at houses.
When we got back home to Lake Jackson my husband kept saying we should have looked inside that house. It could be the way we get into that lake side community, it's a great price, and he went on and on. All I could think of was sitting in my back yard looking at DIRT!!!
So finally I gave in. We called the realtor and ask her to find out WHO owns the dirt? Turns out it's a development company and they plan on moving the dirt in 6 months.
So a few weekends later we went back up to Austin tosee the house and we climbed that dirt pile to take a look see.
And there just over the dirt was the most BEAUTIFUL breathtaking view of the lake we ever saw!!!!
We decided that day to make an offer on the house and we just closed on it in May. Our first investment property to buy because of network marketing andbecause of who I've become over the years to achievethe income level to be able to start investing in real estate!
I mentioned to our lender the next BIG dream is to buy another lake lot RIGHT NEAR the water and build our DREAM HOUSE!
Well we just put in an offer for two lots right up on a hill with the most beautiful viewof the hill country and the lake!
This is where we'll build our dream house and my DREAM office overlooking the lake!
While up there at the lake house I'm still able to do business if I choose to!
I can take the business with me where ever I go if I decideto! Mainly because I absolutely love what I do! I even listened to some Ellie Drake cd's on the way home! She's another very inspiring teacher who advises us to be very coachable and to be a good student!
So it's time to stretch some more to BECOME the person that will bring BIGGER dreams to life TOO!
Never quit! Never give up on your dreams! Haveone SO big that you cannot accomplish it and thenbecome the person who can!
Most people get into a Network Marketing businessand then when things don't happen like they want ittoo or quick enough or the first little thing goes wrongor something else comes along that looks betterit's just easier to quit!
It's usually because they don't have a dream big enough and they refuse to become the personthat can accomplish their dream! No time to go totrainings or events and no money to get there,gotta have it right now, upline won't help me, thecompany closed down, the product was late gettinhere, it's to expensive, and on and on with excuses! Many years ago I remember receiving an award at ateam get together during one of the many company events I attended in Salt Lake City back in June of 1998.
Guess what it was for?
The Make It Happen award! It's framed right here inmy office! There's another one framed right above itfrom the same upline in 1999 for The Persistence award!
Get a BIGGER dream and become the BEST you can beand decide to make it happen no matter what! If a littleole mommy with no experience, no credibility, no corporate background, no degrees and no money can do it anyonecan!
Become the BEST you can be and then don't quit beforeyou make your dreams happen!
"Keep on doing good and in proper season we will reap a harvest if we do not give up"!
