I received a phone call from someone who wanted to pick my brain about real estate and REO investment properties. She was thinking about also selling her home. I joyfully gave her the gift, educated her, inspired her. Now she wants to work with me and it is going to be a win win situation. Miracles happen when you purely just reaching out seeing what someone needs, contribute and serve unconditionally.
I got to give The Gift two times today…. One, I connected two people; Two, offering listening, compassion and understanding.
In both cases, I felt incredible during and after. Have you experienced the emotional high of contributing to another without expectation… for the JOY of making a difference to others? What was is like?
You know I know that every night I go to bed and have not filled out my 30 day challenge I know I am out of integrity of what I said I was going to do. I said I was committing to the Give the Gift 30 Day challenge. I’m doing the challenge but not blogging every day. And honestly I feel like I fall off the mark of where I’m going more often than not.
One thing I’ve noticed is how eager I am to keep talking about where I want to go … like I am already there. So I’m going to state it here right now. That I attracted my $50,000 plus expenses already. I attracted or allowed that income in 30 days. I did it! I made close to $70,000 in less than 30 days. That feels good.
Tracking every number was the most fun. I looked at every number of my finances. Tracked every penny of income and also tracked expenses.
And I really have been making a difference by listening to someones problem, contributing on the spot and watching the syncronicity show up.
I’m tracking every conversation.
I feel like I’m missing some synchroncity. I wonder sometimes if I am actually making a difference and contributing on the spot is really helping. Or am I really doing it enough.
Ok I give that up and accept and choose that I am making a difference for everyone I talk to.
I’m trying to be specific but today can not find a specific moment. It will show up as I go to sleep.
There I did it. I posted today and that took all the follow through I have tonight.
Just the fact that you are reading this means that you were meant to make a difference for someone in the next 30 minutes. Go for it.
Today I called about 8 people and did not get any direct business from those people but that’s ok. However last week I gave the gift to another past client. He has become so inspired that he referred me more business and He also called me today and proposed a way to work together. Keep giving the gift, spend time with people, connect deeply with others, seeing what they are all about. Drop your agenda and make a difference to other people. Basically you never know when opportunity is going to land.
Do you know how hard it is for me to write in a blog every day? It’s a 30 day challenge in itself.
I’ve been listening to make a contribution and difference for everyone I come in contact with.
I’m listening and feel it’s crunch time starting for my 30 day challenge. I feel like I’ve been warming up.
Interesting thing. I played in a golf tournament over the weekend and finished last! It was hard for me cause I’ve not been able to play the golf I thought I could this year. After playing with about 85 of the areas top players I really saw something for myself in the area of making a difference for others. I saw where I am as a player, know what I need to do to where I want to get to and that pretty much created a road map for me.
Get coaching, practice every other day for an hour, watch myself on tape, practice putting and go play at least 3 times a week. Now that may seem like a simple plan. And it is. Creating the time in my schedule is another challenge.
So my point is if I’m going to make a difference for people at an extraordinary level and pay attention every day to who and how I make a difference then I’m going to have to raise the bar on the number of people I contribute the gift to.
It’s simply laying out a plan to make sure I’m having the conversations I need to fulfill on my commitment to paying 100% of my bills plus monthly expenses by the end of this challenge. Or by July 28th.
I’m on it.

Gave The Gift to 11 people… this was my day this week to really get in there and connect with others! Experiencing great results. Nothing specific on my intentions for the 30 Day Challenge, but I know I’ve stirred the pot. Excited to see what unfolds.
Connected two colleagues, made a great referral, scheduled a meeting with a strategic partner, received a huge gift from a friend who offered to connect me with potential speaking opportunities. And, actually booked a great speaking opportunity in July.. more on that soon!
Day 3 is a perfect example of trusting that what I want is coming into my life, and that when I give, I receive (I just have to release that I have any idea how or what that looks like). Being interested in other people FEELS GOOD, and keeps me uplifted, positive and in the space where I can attract.
Today I acknowledge even the little miracles. Here is the tip for today Are you being a millionaire? or are you just doing what it takes right now to make things happen? Are you visualizing, walking, talking like someone who is already a millionaire or just grinding it out just doing what it takes to produce results. If you are being someone who is joyful you take action from that place. When you come from Fear you get no results. Within 5 minutes of being aware of this I switched to Joy and I received a phone call that resulted into a lead. Doing vs. Being, 80% is all mindset the 20% is physical that goes to show you that I wasn’t doing anything different. Once you shift your mindset the rest just happens naturally.
I called 10 of my friends to see how I can make a difference to them. I received a referral to send my Oprah Submission to Skull Ent. I didn’t receive anything directly towards my other goals but I am at peace with it. In the past if I didn’t achieve my goals I would get bent out of shape and derail myself. That is my key to success and keep moving forward.
Thanks guys see you on Day 3. Remember dream big and serve unconditionally.
