Let the Remarkability Challenge Begin!

Are you done yet……………………..? I am!!!

Every day I speak with people who want their lives to be different. Every day I listen to a long list of excuses of why they can’t have the life they want…………the shortest distance between two points is a straight line……………so why don’t people move in a straight line toward the goal of their dreams……………..they make side trips that take up time and energy. I am just as guilty as anyone else……………..

Well I am done! I am done …I am WAY done!!!!………….. I am getting on with it!

I am committed to work harder on myself! Jim Rohn, my mentor once said……….. “Work harder on yourself than you do your job!” I have been sharing that will people in my classes for years. I have never made it my complete mantra………………………until now!

“To attract attractive people, you must be attractive. To attract powerful people, you must be powerful. To attract committed people, you must be committed. Instead of going to work on them, you go to work on yourself. If you become, you can attract.

We can have more than we’ve got because we can become more than we are.

The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.”
Jim Rohn

The question is how do we become more than we are?

So………..I went back to the basics…………..
I went back to the keys of becoming remarkable. If you haven’t downloaded the Ten Keys to Remarkability make sure you do that today! I re-read each one slowly. I wanted to think through which keys I wasn’t doing very well at…………….keys I have known in my heart what I need to do.

I know I lack discipline………because I am not disciplined I lack the ability to take action……………lack of action is why I haven’t reached my goals. I get overwhelmed, then I get frozen, then I look back and focus on what I should have done………not what I could be doing.

I was at the gym working out. Ever since I had a stroke I have been trying to be more physical, get more exercise……..so Glen walks up and asks if I have ever been in a body building contest! “No,” I said! He said, “You should.” ………….I laughed it off……………

A month later I saw Glen again…….he asked again………this time he said, “ IF YOU CAN DO THIS…………YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! I felt like someone stabbed me in my heart. I knew at that exact moment………what I needed to do. I needed to do this contest…………for me It is not about being a bodybuilder NOR being in the contest. For me it is about being DISCIPLINED enough to do the contest.

Jim Rohn, my mentor said, “JUST CHANGE ONE THING”…if you change one thing your life will begin to change……..I found, for me “CHANGE ONE THING AND REPLACE IT WITH SOMETHING ELSE” was the key ………for me that is what worked. I needed to take a radical change…….one that I knew would affect every single person around me.

Here is what my day was like…………get up, go to work, dinner, TV , drop into bed, do it all over again. If I had a glass of wine………it was really over…………..I got nothing done. I can remember feeling like the wine covered my pain……………but the pain no longer existed………. it had become pure habit………………a habit that was holding me back.

I felt like I was standing on a cliff. I could see what I wanted to accomplish. I could see the other side. I could taste the other side……I felt the other side……….I just couldn’t get there.

Doing this body building contest would be my bridge……………………it was the discipline I needed to go forward.
The Remarkabilty Challenge was born! I was believing that…………….. IF I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO ANYTHING!
This is about me getting unstuck. This is about moving forward! This is about getting out of the rut! This is about no more excuses. This is about developing mental and physical discipline this is my journal about moving to the next level in my life purpose, my goals and my dreams! For months I have been in internal pain. I get what I have to get done, but nothing toward my future goals and dreams. It seems that l have been stuck for months. I am desperate to change……….this is my final attempt to move. I feel failure is right around the corner if I don’t accomplish this!!!!

This journal will be raw……..I am not going to hold anything back. If you follow this you get the good, the bad and the ugly.

I remember Rolf Meyer, co- author of the new South African constitution, said he had a point of transition and a process of transformation. Six years ago when I started my business, moved and changed my relationship I made my point of transition. The process of transformation has been difficult.

In going from one thing to another we seem to revert back to the comfortable. I am comfortable in all my training situations……….in going to my goal of reaching one million voices I am not so comfortable.

One of my favorite quotes is, “Don’t be in such a hurry to go back to what you once were………….when God wants you to become something you have never been!” I want to become something I have never been!
The remarkability challenge is my personal attempt to get unstuck.

If you feel like you’re stuck join me. If you feel like you have to do something to get unstuck………join me in the 14 week remarkability challenge!

Come up with your own way of getting unstuck. Download the 10 Keys to Remarkability. Read through the keys. Think through what might be the area you are stuck. Come up with a 14 week plan; pick a start date and an end date. Define what the final goal is. What does it look like ………be specific? Remember change ONE thing! The result is MANY things change as a result!

I sure could use the support and would be happy to help support you. If this interests you, email me at remarkabilitychallenge@speakamerica.com and let me know what is your start date, end date and the goal you’re trying to achieve. Let me know which key you’re trying to work on. The last date to start is June 7th. It doesn’t matter when you start………….as long as you start!!!!

I was really afraid that I could not do this………..you have felt that, we all have …………..so I didn’t tell too many people until I gained some strength. I am in my forth week, the early hard part is over……..now I am ready to move forward to reach my goals! Now I am ready to help you in those first weeks reach your goals! I don’t have all the answers, but I will share what I have learned in the first almost 4 weeks.

Don’t wait any longer. Now is the time to start moving in the direction you have always wanted to.

IF WE, YOU AND I CAN DO THIS, WE CAN DO ANYTHING!

From here on out we travel together!

I DARE YOU!!!!!
