In my world, or at least the world I left behind, calling your shot… staking your claim… writing down your goals… whatever you call it wasn’t done.
It was taboo to put on paper something that could be used against you *for any reason*.
You see my father was a criminal, trained at a young age by his mother to steal, to lie, to cheat, to do whatever you had to do to survive and writing something down gave physical proof that it was you.
Physical proof that could put you in a physical cage.
He drilled this into my head so much that it put me into a mental cage that’s taken me decades to break out of.
Never let them see you weak.
Never let them see you bleed.
Never let them see you.
So imagine my dilemma when I wanted to become a writer.
I struggled so much with this because I felt like I was letting my father down. I was committing this terrible crime that he had warned me not to do for so long.
Being vulnerable wasn’t an option in my world.
I had turned into this statue of stone that no one could break.
I had no emotions and I let no one in.
He passed away in 2005 and I bawled like a baby.
But no one saw it because that is the way I was accustomed to doing things of that nature.
Behind closed doors.
At night when everyone’s asleep.
I tell you these things because I’m tired of the mental cage I’m in.
For me to achieve my goals I have to let people in… I have to be vulnerable… and I have to do it authentic to me.
He made me a better person as I know the flip side of the coin. I am at peace with myself and know that I am capable of anything I put my mind to.
He instilled that in me as well… self-reliance, courage and staying the course.
Thankfully I didn’t go into the life of crime… but I’m sure I would’ve been good at it. lol
Anyway, I say all this to make sure you understand my shots, why it’s so difficult for me to state them AND to hold me accountable.
Think of it as a prison break… but a totally legal one. 🤣🤣
So here are my shots for 2020:
🎯1. $1Million Dollars in revenue
🎯2. 365 FB lives for visibility
🎯3. Write a book about my daughter
🎯4. Retire my husband (if he chooses)
🎯5. Fund a schoolhouse with Russell Brunson
🎯6. Speak on BIG stages
🎯7. Write a book about my father
🎯8. Take my mom on a month’s travel to do Geneology
🎯9. Create a park in my daughters’ name
🎯10. Donate $100K to O.U.R.
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
These are my shots and I’m done playing small… I wasn’t built for that.
I was built for endurance and I was created to impact lives.
What shots are you firing for 2020?
Send me a message and let me know.
