Did you ever need lots of cash in a short period of time and had no idea how to create it? Try on a challenge!
As of 11pm last night I took on a challenge to create $15K in the next 4 weeks (by December 4). I have no idea how yet.
How did it start
My friend and also a life coach (who's name will stay anonymous) emailed me couple days ago asking if I want to create "make $10K in 4 weeks" challenge. She said she wanted to go on a trip but didn't feel it was completely responsible for her unless she generates some cash first. I Said "Sure why not!". When we had our first co-coaching session, I decided that I really wanted $15K (not $10K) so that by Dec 4 when I am out of my job I would have generated enough money to feel secure with all my financial obligations. I also decided that I only want to do it in a way that is fun. Scary and uncomfortable: yes, but no more hard work or pushing up the hill!
How I feel
I feel excited and scared. Excited about the opportunity to finally do what I preach "anything is possible when you commit to it" and stretch myself in this area. Scared what if i won's be able to do it.
Is there a guarantee that I will make it happen? Absolutely not. Then I thought: what's the worst thing that can happen? I won't create all of these money and feel like a looser. But I will definitely create some, learn new things, challenge myself and expand my comfort zone. And have fun in the process. And learn what it takes so I can then coach others in doing that! I also remembered that I don't need to know the "How" before I commit, "How" often only shows up after the intention and commitment is set.
Why do I share it here
I don't remember where I read it that when you share your goals/commitments with others, your chances to make it happen go much higher, also so does the disappointment if you fail.
I also remember from the past experiences: it's easy to create if I am 100% committed. If I am half way it's actually harder. So declaring it here I put by butt on the line and will have more motivation to do whatever it takes.
So my commitment is:
The game is on!
I will keep you posted here on my progress!
See my next blog for Day 1 results!
Feel inspired to do it too?
Join me with your own goals for the next 4 weeks!
