Security Blanket

Last night at about 3am Hailey screamed bloody murder. I am talking a straight up horrified scream. I went into her room and she was sitting up, scared. I picked her up and hugged her and told her it was ok and asked her what happened.  She kept saying that there was an animal in her blankey.

I turned on the lights and showed her that there was no animal in her blankey and then rocked with her and helped her go back to sleep. She must have had a bad dream that really shook her.

I Refuse!

I can very easily fear the future. I will slip into what if scenarios where everything falls apart and I lose so much. I can go down a rabbit hole of doubt, worry, and fear. I refuse to!

I can choose what I think about. I choose to think about how much success I have had. I choose to think of so many people that I have helped and am helping. I choose to believe that all of the work that I put in has paid off and will continue to pay off. I choose to trust people and put my faith in them. I choose to trust me and put my faith in myself. I choose to believe that I can have the life that I want. A life of abundance and a life where I am happy and doing the things that I want to do now, not later. I choose.


Guy and I have been talking for a while about being accountability partners. We both respect each other and telling each other that we are going to do something would motivate both of us. Yesterday we sat down and discussed our first accountability. Guy has been reading The Miracle Morning and is interested in starting it. We both decided that we were going to implement it together. So guess who is going to become more consistent in journaling again. I can usually get the exercise, meditation and affirmations. Now I will make sure that reading, writing and visualizing get done as well. I am excited to see where this leads!

Same Time

It is amazing to me how I can have such radically different thoughts in the exact same situation. Here I am, and I am afraid. Here I am, and I am excited. No difference in the situation.   Brain, what is going on?

A Tale of Two Minds

I had a great weekend meeting a new client, hanging out with my family, and doing things like getting back out to the Farmer’s Market, heading to the zoo, and just being outside in this wonderful weather. Simultaneously I am worried about money. I have lost twice as many deals this year as I have lost total in my entire realtor career. I am having a string of bad luck and that on top of my rentals going so far south has made my reserve fund precipitously low. I will work. I will find more money. I will make it and not only survive, I will thrive. I believe in Ryan Lynch.

Do It!

Sometimes you simply need to say this would help and do something you don’t really want to do. Ryan Lynch: Do IT!!!

Get Up and Go!

This morning I really didn’t want to get out of bed. I was talking to myself and I finally said “Just get up. You know you will be happier if you do.” I did and I feel wonderful. Get up, run, journal, shower, meditate. It is a great way to start the day and it is all done before anyone else in my family even gets out of bed.

I am grateful for sharing with others.

I am grateful for May Day baskets.

I am grateful for my incredible wife of eight years.

I am grateful for running.

8 Years!

Today is Amber and my 8th Anniversary. Eight years ago Amber made me the happiest man in the world. She has given me two beautiful little girls. She is my best friend, my confidant, my shoulder, my partner. I am more attracted to her now than I have ever been. I love her so much. I am so lucky.

I am grateful for Amber’s smile.

The Small Things

Yesterday I got shit done. What is amazing to me is how small something has to be to affect me. I was searching for deals for Ron and Guy and had probably spent about an hour with no results. I was frustrated and thinking that I was screwed. I was never going to find a good deal. Then I found one.  My entire outlook changed.

What is even more amazing was that they told me that they had  seen that deal a month ago and went to inspect the properties and they needed way more work than would ever make it a deal anywhere  near list price. I wasn’t phased though. I knew I would keep searching and find another deal.
