Make 2011 A Year Without Fear!

 Lets cut to the story pretty quick Friend, because you may look at the title and wonder “Where the heck is he going with this one?”  It’s really about the way we live our lives, sometimes we do it consciously and sometimes we don’t.  Fear can sneak up on you and you don’t even realize your living in it.

Maybe you remember this, well if you live in the north east quadrant of  the US or the south east quadrant of Canada you couldn’t forget this, I know we never will.

August 14th and 15th, 2003 starting at around 4pm eastern we experienced the largest black out in US history.  Over 50,000,000 people were effected in the U.S. and Canada – including New York City, Albany, Hartford, Toronto, Ottawa, Detroit, Cleveland and Ontario – and has officials in the two countries engaging in a blame game as to what went wrong.

I remember that day like yesterday, I was laid off from my job that afternoon and shortly after walking in the house and breaking the news to Lisa the power went out.  So here I am thinking either Detroit Edison was getting ahead of themselves or my boss was really pissed!

 

We found an old AM battery radio that still worked long enough to find out nobody seemed to know what was going on.  So we just stuck around the house and tried to stay cool.

The next morning the power was still out so to beat the heat Lisa started getting our girls ready to head over to her Mom’s pool.  I decided to go for a drive in the mean time to see what was going on.

Friend it was FREAKING ERIE!!!   It was 11am Friday morning and there was NOBODY on the road.  I don’t know about where you live but here in the Motor City there is NEVER no cars on the road.

I drove into Downtown Mt. Clemens and being less than two years after 911, around all those tall lifeless buildings with no one around I actually got spooked!

That’s kind of what I’m getting at here,  What is it that spooked me? 

Was it the fact that the power was out?  No, I mean it was out but like I said it was around 11am and broad daylight.

Was it the lifeless buildings?  No, I’ve been in downtown Mt. Clemens and Detroit when there was nothing open.

So what was it?  Fear of the unknown.  I didn’t know why this was happening.  This was no big deal, but fear of the unknown KILLS peoples chances of success in life every day.

They see something they want, find a way to get it and are terrified to take action because they are afraid they will fail.  Bottom line that also means they are afraid to succeed.

Check out this video. It will explain this better…

 

Don’t be the fly Friend!  If you’ve been looking for a change find something or someone you believe in and GO FOR IT!

You may not know but we are moving our family form Detroit, MI to Jacksonville, FL.  This isn’t just a New Years resolution to us, it WILL HAPPEN.

It’s exciting but scary too.  We were born in Detroit, MI, Lisa grew up in Troy MI, I grew up in Warren, MI.  I bought my first home in St. Clair Shores, MI thats where Lisa and I met and got married.  We built the house we are in now from the ground up in Chesterfield, MI.  This is the only home we have ever known, talk about stretching your comfort zone…..

If you want change in your life Friend you have to change something about the way you’re living it.

My wish to you is that January 1st, 2011 is the first day of the greatest year of your life, so go make it happen!

Dedicated to you,

    I want to express appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this particular challenge. Just after looking through the online world and seeing proposals which are not helpful, I assumed my life was gone. Living without the answers to the issues you’ve fixed by means of your main post is a serious case, as well as the kind which may have negatively affected my career if I had not discovered the blog. Your own personal talents and kindness in playing with every part was important. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a stuff like this. It’s possible to now look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for this impressive and sensible guide. I won’t hesitate to suggest the blog to anybody who needs guidelines about this issue.
