Motivational Monday-HAVE NO FEAR. First I want to say thank you Active Rain and Websitebox for putting this great contest together. This contest challenged me and made me "THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX".
And Congratulations to ALL 186 ENTRIES IN THIS CONTEST. Why seven were chosen lucky winners for the Activerain and Website Box Contest... I wish my Website did this.THERE ARE NO LOSERS. EVERYBODY WHO PARTICIPATED ARE WINNERS. But I still can't believe that IT IS REAL-Somebody cyber pinch me(It's there such a thing-LOL). But this is real. Matter of fact Chad called me earlier today to tell me that I was chosen as one of the seven winners out of 186 entries. Did I want to scream very loud when I found out? HECK YEAH! I am getting a free website. And this website has a lot of tools that every real estate website should have. Ex: CRM,IDX,SEO friendly content and MORE.
But why this is a Motivational Post you ask? Well I will be the first to admit that I am not a techy/IMSD(Not yet)guru in a long shot. I am still a newbie techy Real Estate Agent. When I first heard of this Contest honestly speaking,I almost conceded defeat. Now what would've happened if I just would've just conceded defeat by saying "I can't or won't win because there are too many knowledgeable super techy,SEO Real Estate Professionals here who are better than me? AND THERE ARE. I couldv'e said that BUT I DIDN'T. I took this opportunity as a way to challenge myself and "THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX" even though I am not a super techy guy in a long shot. The old me would've defeated myself before I had a chance to give myself a chance to see whether I can do it or not. How many of us have conceded defeat in certain areas of our life before we can even start something because too often we think we can't do this or can't do that. Can't is a word (depending on the situation)is a word that we need to take out of our vocabulary sometimes. I use to do that. BUT NOT ANYMORE. In fact FEAR should be very afraid of me. FEAR is FAKE ENEMIES APPEARING REAL. I say enemies because that is what have defeated many of us. Sometimes we are our worst enemies. Now instead of saying to myself "What if I entered,would I have won?". Now I can say I won because I didn't let fear stop me from thinking that I couldn't win. God didn't give me a spirit of fear. But he has given to us. A spirit of power,glory and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
Now because I didn't let FEAR stop me from entering a contest to win a free website,I have a new website. Hope to start getting it set up with Chad this week. I have an old domain that I am going to use for this new website. I am definitely going to let everybody know how everything is going with the site. Hopefully my experience with this website will prompt more peoole to take advantage of this site that is $99 FOR LIFE. I actually told Chad am I being punked when I talked to him? SERIOUSLY. Now before I sign off I want to share a video clip with you all.
I am not sure if any of you have heard of Nick Vujicic. He has actually preached at my church First Baptist Church of Glenarden Upper Marlboro MD twice. Just found out that he has a book called Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action. But what I wanted to say is here is a Man of God born with tetra-amelia syndrome,a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. But yet this Man of faith Nick Vujicic has more faith than many people who are not in the condition that he is in. Please check out his website here LIFE WITHOUT LIMBS-FROM NO LIMBS TO NO LIMITS 2 Timothy 1:7 says God didn't give us a spirit of fear. REMEMBER: FEAR comes from the Devil. FAITH comes from God. Conquer FEAR so that your FAITH in God can continue to grow
