Vicki Irvin-Are You REALLY Ready Or Are You Scared? Maryland Real Estate Investing
OH MY GOODNESS!! Only a few days before 2007 is upon us! Are you nervous? I have a whole lot of goals in place for 2007 and if I can stay on track, this will turn out to be one heck of a year for me. One thing that I always do to before the new year is to â€œjump startâ€� my action plan by actually getting started before January 1st. For some reason it always makes me feel like I am ahead of the game. You know how the gym is jam packed right after new yearâ€™s? Well if you go a day or two before the new year actually starts, you will feel so much better guaranteed!
Let me give you another little trickâ€¦find yourself an â€œAccountability Coach.â€� An Accountability Coach is someone like minded and positive who is on a mission just like yourself to finally make some good powerful changes in their life. Iâ€™m not talking about just anybody or your best friend or shopping buddy. I am talking about whoever you know who is determined and straight forward and will give it to you honestly. This is the person that you should sit down with and exchange your personal goals, action plans, and timelines. Come up with intervals in which the two of you will meet over the phone or in person and ask the other where they are at on completing a project or goal that is important to them for 2007. If you are REALLY serious, how about putting some money in the pot? Have a third party person hold a couple hundred dollars for the both of you, and whoever falls off track of reaching their goals, loses their money to the other person. Itâ€™s pretty simple if you are serious about making some positive strives in your life this year. Putting up the money shouldnâ€™t be a thing if you KNOW you are going to stick to your goals come heck or high water!
I am putting my money where my mouth is this year. My Real Estate investing partners and my realtors are all participating in this whole Accountability Coaching exercise. We have each put up $5,000 that is being held by a third party person who has all of our goals and action plans safely stored on their computer. We have pre-determined dates set for our conference calls to report out to each other if we have made our deadlines or not. NO excuses allowed, simple yes or no answers will be the ONLY thing that is accepted. And I am NOT scared! Are you?
If you too are looking for a challenge and want to be around positive like-minded people who will hold you accountable and help drive you to success, do yourself a favor and attend my next seminar on January 4th at: www.MarylandFreeSeminars.com Â Get â€œRich-N- Fitâ€� with the Queen! Can you really afford not to?
