THANK YOU! You are awesome.
I am sure most of you are just like me. You have creepy crawlies in your head. You have grand ideas and amazing scenarios floating around in that mass of grey matter of your brain. You have stories and to do lists and wants and needs and... STUFF THAT IS JUST STUCK IN YOUR HEAD.
Itʻs time to get it out.
I am not sure how you will go about doing that but this is what Iʻll be doing my CANS:
C - CLARITY
A - ACTION
N - NO FEAR
S - SYSTEMS
I am an overthinker. I process and vacillate and pick apart things until ... well sometimes until itʻs too late. I waste time, thinking. I think Iʻm thinking for Clarity but Iʻm really just mudding everything up. So... I am cleaning house. I am clearing out the over processing.
This goes in hand with all the other "CANS". Clarity happens when I focus on the task at hand and take action immediately! If it is not important enough to take immediate action then it is probably not that important and can be cleaned out and filed away. I will set clear goals and I will set them high. I will attain my goals.
I will attain my goals by taking...
"If you are going to fail, FAIL BIG!" -Mrs. Sharon Abrigo, Retired Theatre Teacher and AWESOME WOMAN. "FAIL FAST." - Justin Williams, House Flipping HQ. "If you set your goals ridiculously high and itʻs a failure, you will fail above everyone elseʻs success." - James Cameron.
Oh... I could go on with the quotes but you came hear to read what I think! I will never FAIL unless I TRY. I will never succeed either. Unless I take ACTION... there is nothing. I am nothing but words and dreams of words and wordy dreams.
HOW will I take ACTION? I am a MOTHER, a WRITER and a REAL ESTATE INVESTOR and AGENT. I am all over the place!!! I NEED focus (see Clarity above). With more focus I will accomplish the following goals in 2016 with NO FEAR:
1. FAMILY FIRST (not really a goal as much as an IDEAL)
2. PUBLISH BOOK
3. PUBLISH 2nd BOOK
4. Get AT LEAST 15 properties CLOSED!
I am a cautious person. I run scenarios in my head all day everyday. I over think! (See Clarity) Thinking is fine. I suggest you all do a bit of thinking in your day to day activities. The same with Fear. Fear is healthy.
ME? Too much. I think myself in to a corner. I think myself into being AFRAID! I need to ACT with NO FEAR!
How to do all of this and still keep sane?
Successful people have systems. How to get from A-B or How to make a certain amount of money or How to publish a book... There are methods out there that I need to find and stick to.
So... for the book I am currently following a fellow by the name of Chandler Bolt.
There are many other how-to books out there but he comes highly recommended by Hal Elrod, another author I follow.
So, if youʻre like me and you are stuck... Make 2016 the year of CANS.
You and I CAN achieve Clarity.
You and I CAN achieve by taking ACTION.
You and I CAN achieve with NO FEAR.
You and I CAN create SYSTEMS.
Hereʻs a little teaser of the cover...
And a pic of me and my niece Aaliyah. I miss her.
It looks like Iʻm a scary monster coming out of her head. Or eating her head.
Both scenarios are relevant to this blog.
