The Best Inspiration Is A Goal (Roll Tide Roll!!)

Standard

During football season, I am always inspired by the tenacity of the players. The will they have in them to not be satisfied, but continue winning. This attitude is exemplified by my beloved Crimson Tide.

The focus of two 60 Minutes pieces last week, (see one below)

and amidst constant rumors of Coach Saban leaving for Texas, these guys came out and put the process on prime display and gave LSU all they could handle Saturday night Nov. 9, willing themselves to a 21 point win over the Bayou Bengals. And, though I’ve posted a couple of times about the focus Nick Saban implants in his teams, this particular win brings me around to what am I doing to make my dreams come true. At the beginning of the year, I set a goal to leverage enough passive income on the internet to buy a ticket to see this team play for Sweet 16 in Pasedena. And what steps have I taken to reach this goal? ZERO. Well aside from posting on this blog and watching videos and…dreaming. Other than that I’ve done nothing tangible. I have allowed things to deter me though. Like giving in to the demands for sex from my spouse when I wanted to be working towards this during that time and ending up pregnant. Used a few excuses too, no money, no car to access the internet. All it has left me with is regret that I’m not going to get to go if they win out. Which it looks like they have a good chance of doing. And why? Because I haven’t been inspired enough by my own goals to impose the will of excellence on myself.

Funny, the things a “good game” can make you realize. So, today I’ve decided no more. No more fear, no more excuses, just try. I have plenty of resources. Push through the fear which has been my adversity, making all my reasons for not doing so easy, and do it. Take a chance. Hey I could win, 38-17. Making this old life the underdog it was always expected to be.

So I’m going to be revamping this blog, turning it into a dot com, taking advantage of some groups and some coaching programs and see. At least see, if all I want out of life, especially monetarily can really be. And if you’re reading this and ever wondered the same thing, I want you to look at this as me testing the waters for us. And if you decide to join me on this journey please do, but if you don’t, I’m out to prove to myself that I can make my ideal life come true, and stop regretting the things I don’t do for lack of setting a process to reach my goals, being inspired by it to give it my all, and not achieving. With the same fever of the Crimson Tide team, I’m going to chase and live my dreams. And if you choose not to join me, or just to wait and see, then hopefully I’ll see you on the other side of financial freedom and can provide you with some inspiration via my success.
