I just went back and re read my blogs when I first joined Spark.. they where so full of hope and inspiration and motivation by my self.. and the responses from members some still here some not.. where so inspiring .. I was on top of my game or at least I thought I was.. maybe I was.. So your asking am I on top of my game now?
NO... I don't feel it..I feel kind of like I am going through the motions.. and not really working it.. OK I am in sales.. I sold houses for 5 years and I was very very good at it very competitive and very on top of my game.. I had to be or I did not make money.. I was always doing my "homework" to become an expert on the market.. I read books, I listened to other agents I watched other agents.. I enlisted in a couple of coaches to help with my sales.. and followed their advice to a Teee. and that is what worked for me.. I felt I had to be One step beyond everyone.. and I was.. or at least I think I was.. was there someone better then I ? yes. was there other agents who sold more then I ? oh yea.. but I wanted to be like them, I watched them and I followed what they did. and it worked..
The Day I joined spark and set up everything and read a lot of stuff I decided to apply the same attitude to my program.. and it worked.. it really worked tried to be one step ahead of me.. and my emotional eating.. I did what ever it took, I read... and re read arterials.. blogs. posts, recipes everything that spark had to offer.. I joined teams got into challenges.. started a team. too.. lead some teams.. really dove into it..
besides spark.. I ate clean everyday. planned out my meals, packed healthy lunch for work.. went to the gym, walked, rode my bike.. and got 8 hours sleep.. I was happy and the weight it came off..
Now I think the honey moon is over.. I don't have the same vigor and drive like I did I don't sell real estate any more I got out when the market went south and I need to get a job.. I now work in sales again and I love it keeps me going it keeps me on my game.. and I do enjoy this job a lot..
as for my program.. I am struggling.. well not struggling I am like I said going through the motions.. and feeling like I should be doing more or something different.. the weight has stopped coming off. I gain more then I lose.. one week up 1 next week down 1 one week up 2 one week no loss it goes on and on and on..
One thing for sure is I still use the tools, the tracking, the reading, the blogs and members.. thank God for members who support me and encourage me.. because I am not sure where I would be if I did not have that..
So is it still exciting ? but of course.. I may not feel excited at times.. but I know that this is life and life has its ups and downs.. but that is what makes it exciting
