Thank you Dean for your words of encouragement and guidance. I'm at the point where I signed up for the success academy and having trouble even getting the first assignment done. I can't quit watching the videos though, they're like a lifeline and so encouraging. I am going to find that assignment, dig out the link to the website which I've lost, and DO IT!!! I will get a blue ribbon now for every single little step. It doesn't seem so overwhelming now. I fell victim to some naysayers. Not now! I can do this! Thank you!!

Goal Setting, Yes

Started that earlier last year . Had to lose weight . Set a estimated amount . Didn't get there . Failure , no because the goal was the significant lose . (lost 40+#s in a few months of the 55#s .) January goals are a small but very important set of steps . Alter time table don't think so if any .
It does work .
Thank You !

What a great blog. It's so easy like you said to get overwhelmed and discouraged. What a perfect time to get organized and focused on what our goals are and the potential of what we can accomplish.

Thank you once again. Was just speaking with a friend about exactly this concept. We've both worked in corporate America and found that the only thing, or just about the only thing that gets noticed are mistakes. Finally "we" can set ourselves up for success with the ability to follow your suggestion of "plateau rewards".

I don't know where you get all you wisdom, but it is amazing. Thank you and keep up the good work.


How do you eat an elephant? one bite at a time.

Thanks Dean... Again great words of wisdom.







I just want to THANK YOU for your efforts.

Dean, I want to let you know that even though I haven't gotten my first deal yet. I count on these weekly blogs. I can see that sometimes its a strugle for you when your physicaly drained. But thank you, from the bottom of my heart thank you for doing it anyway. When I see that; it showes me how commited you are to my success. It pushes me to be commited to my own success and to other peoples success to.

What you do is not in vain. It's getting to me. So thank you for not giving up on me. I pray more blessings upon you and yours this year.

Step by Step

Great Blog!

I like this logic of thinking. By making small but realistic and achievable plateaus of success points, you'll ultimately accomplish that main goal! It's also important to write these goals down. I think you spoke about that point as well in a previous post! Thanks for this tool of focus. Happy New Year DG Family!

Thank You and Happy New Year

Thank you for all that you do Dean. I am going to make this year the best year ever.

Thanks for that

We are always harder on ourselves than someone else. I know that i am one of those person that set goals so high, then when i do not accomplish them i get down on myself.

Thank you for giving me that hope that i can also be successful in Real Estate. I will set my goals but also set different times in which i can get closer to them.

Take care Dean, Happy New Year and God Bless.

Were you in my head recently? I swear you weere talking to me.



Today is my first day of the Success Academy! I am so excited to learn! My husband is half way through the first book and has already decided what property he is going to invest in first. I told him to get on this site and start reading the blogs. I have learned a lot from them. I told him to take one step at a time, but then who listens to their wife? Eye-wink

Thanks Dean, great advice!

Happy New Years! You're right Dean! I met a few goals, and life got in the way. But this year, this year is going to be mine!

Another boost towards success.

Joining the academy this week and focus on taking steps everyday. This is all I think about and realize it's time to take major steps towards my goals. Love your inputs and motivation. Ralph McBee

Thanks for all the advice, Dean. I like the idea of having small plateaus of success to reach your goals. It reminded me of Bill Murray in "What About Bob", when he starts taking baby steps to overcome his fears.
And I just wanted to wish you and everyone here a happy and prosperous 2011 ! Smiling

Hello Dean

Just returned from lending institution, where we just applied for a home equity line of credit, hoping to be in a better bargaining postion on a property that is looking very profitable. Thank you for your weekly blogs, we look forward to them. I know from past experience that attaining smaller goals is far more rewarding, and a true confidence builder. Point well taken. Thanks again Dean, and we will see you on your next blog.

Plateau of Success

Hi Dean:

Great advice today about giving ourselves a ribbon when we acheive a goal. I received a great quote today in my inbox. "success doesn't come to you? you go to it" Marva Collins Remember to take action and keep moving forward.

Plateaus of Success

ttjudge's picture

Thanks Dean,

You're right... We need to set attainable levels of achievement towards our goals to see that we are making progress. Just like giving an animal a treat when they make progress, we need to be rewarding ourselves. The more excited we are the more we would stay open to take the next step.

Last night I worked on my goals for 2011, and I just type them on the computer. Your guidance is right on time.



How do I get past my situation as I am 47, broke, unemployed, over 700 miles from the love of my life and a Type 1 diabetic? I am not a pessimist, but am having trouble staying positive with all that is against me currently. Any and all advice is welcomed.

A Great 2011

Hi Dean,

Your message is spot on.

The path to success is a series of smaller victories that when combined lead to massive success.

In understanding the importance of the building blocks of success, every action of every day counts.

Always inspired by your message.
