Episode 9 Putting My Money Where My Mouth Is

Welcome to this week’s episode of Momentum Monday. I’m your host, Paul Halme. I’m really excited to share with you this week’s episode. I know I’ve been talking a lot about personal development, and improving yourself and doing more than you ever thought possible. Last week, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and really go all in by hiring a team that’s going to be helping me go through and figure out what I want to do going forward – what my ultimate goal with this project is.

The Momentum Monday project basically got started out as something for me to do to hold myself accountable, to get more stuff done. Then as it’s progressed I’ve been like, where do I go next? What do I do? What’s the next step? I found a team through a coaching program that goes through, and helps you decide who you are, what you want to do, and gives you some focus on that.

My ultimate goal with that will be in November to launch a best-selling book on Amazon. I’m really excited about that. It’s been something I’ve been putting off for two years, to write a really good book that talks about success and how to accomplish it. I’m really excited to have someone guide me through this process, this next evolution of what I want to become and what I want to do. I’m not going to lie, it’s pretty scary.

It was a big financial investment for me but also the massive amount of work it’s going to take. I didn’t really realize what it takes to get to that next level, and I should have known what it takes. It’s like anything – Jiu Jitsu, business, life…anything. To get that next level is going to require a lot of hard work, a lot of commitment and pushing to get through there.

Just to give you a hint, I got my first assignment today. It’s a 39-page document to define me. It’s scary. Some of the questions you really don’t even want to answer, but you have to. It’s to get an overall understanding of what the next step is going to be and how everything builds on top of each other. I like to relate it a lot to Jiu Jitsu. It’s like moving up the ranks in Jiu Jitsu. It’s hard work; it takes time. It takes commitment, but it also takes a plan. This gets me excited because it’s going to be probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It’s going to take a ton of time. Just the program itself, to go through the coaching program with this team is 90 days. It’s 90 days of a lot of freaking work.

I’m excited too, because on this podcast I talk about, “hey, you need to go out. You need to do stuff. You need to get better.” I have to hold myself accountable to that, too. I can’t sit in a happy little rut. Things are going good, and I’m really happy with the way things are progressing in life. You’re either going forwards or going backwards. Trying to stay in the same spot is pretty hard. For me, I had to get out of my comfort zone, and this really did it.

Especially putting down the amount of money I had to put down and do this, just to hold myself accountable. Otherwise, my wife is going probably kill me. For me, I really needed that push, that commitment, that financial investment and then the amount of time. There’s no way I’m not going to complete this now because I’ve already invested in it. I’m really excited about this because it’s going to build on top of each other.

Like I said, the big goal for me is to write a really good book that comes out in November, and have it become a bestseller. It helps me be able to help other people do some of the things they want to do and break out of their happy little ruts or where they feel they’re stuck at. I’m super excited about that. I’ll be documenting a lot of the process on my blog. It’s really easy to get to. It’s PaulHalme.com. I’ll have updates on there, maybe do a few things on the podcast, I don’t know. I’ve got some really exciting stuff come up in the next couple of weeks.

My travel schedule is going to be pretty cool. I’m going to meet with a bunch of different cool coaches and people that are at another level, where I want to get to. No matter what industry you’re in, or sport, or whatever it is. I always tell people, if you want to know what the secret is to getting places, go find people that are already there. Ask them how they did it and then emulate what they tell you to do. It’s not hard. It’s not rocket science. You just have to put yourself out there and get it done.

I’m super excited. It’s Monday. I’m going to dig into this 39-page document because I have to have it done this week. It’s going to be a long week, but I’m super excited to progress, get to the next level, let you guys know how things go, and then keep pushing, get out there, and get it done. In the Momentum Monday with Paul group on Facebook let me know what you’re working on. Let me know what scares you. Let me know what your ultimate goal is because I want to see you reach it. Everybody in that group is super helpful with pushing forward and getting there. Get out there, get it done and crush this week.
