The past few weeks have been a blur to me. So much has happened and I got so much accomplished. In addition to feeling a sense of relief, I’m just plain old exhausted and couldn’t be happier.
Today is the 1/4 mark on my journey to greatness. As I reflect on what has happened during the 74 days that I took DELIBERATE steps to greatness, I’m amazed. There is something to be said for making a decision to succeed.
In the past month alone, I did more work in production than I had done in the past three months. Although I’ve done less episodes of my radio show, my listens have multiplied almost 200 times and I appreciate the flexibility of doing the show “on demand” instead of at a set time frame.
I think, I’m FINALLY finding my rhythm!
I still have many things to accomplish before getting to the 300 day mark.
Here are the initial goals I set for myself:
Publish my first book. – Done (e-book is available http://www.openingdoorsbook.com).
Read one book a month directly related to achieving my goals. – Done (this month is Tyrese’s How to Get Out of Your Own Way & Prayers for Prodigals: 90 Days of Prayer for your Child by James Banks).
Earn a living as a freelance writer. Done (writing has been my main source of income).
Spend more time encouraging my son. (Ongoing – won’t ever be DONE with that, but, I’ve gotten better).
Go on at least one date. (Hasn’t happened yet, mostly due to me getting in my own way. – I’m going to knock that one out Saturday, though!)
Lose 15 pounds. (Done. Amazingly, once I stopped THINKING so much about it & started living it – it happened!)
Expand my branding and begin realizing revenue from my radio show. (Ongoing, however last month I received the largest check to date from my radio show!)
With most of what I had set as my goals for the year end AMAZINGLY already accomplished, I’m beginning to look at what I want to do for the next 75 days. Here are the top three things:
Complete the curriculum based on Opening Doors: Getting Connected so that I can begin doing public speaking and teaching workshops on how to get connected in the entertainment industry.
Complete the FULL version of Opening Doors: Getting Connected and begin shopping proposals to potential publishers.
Secure an agent.
Thank you to everyone who has been & are continuing to walk with me, even if silently. Your encouragement is invaluable and my prayer is that you will be moved to set goals for yourself, realizing that with God, all things are possible.
