14 years ago Summer and I moved into a new development that was just being built in South Gilbert. At that time, it was considered to be on the outskirts of town, and a bit of drive. We didn’t mind the drive because we knew the values would soon increase, more so then most areas in the valley of sun.
This was a first of its kind community, that offered many amenities, which had never been offered before. Although none of it was built out at that time, we loved the idea of ‘Country Club Living’, and we had a VISION for what it would one day become.
Inside this community, there was one section that was gated. Behind the gates were many beautiful custom homes that were built on much larger lots. Summer and I would go for walks, with our three babies, and dream-build in our minds. I remember making a promise to Summer, “We will one day own a home in this neighborhood.”
We were both in our mid 20’s, and still had quite a journey ahead of us. A few years later we sold that home, and moved to Utah for almost ten years, before eventually returning to AZ.
Yesterday, I took this picture as I was driving through those same gates. The same exact gates, 14 years earlier, we had to sneak in to – just to drive around the neighborhood.
Only this time, I was going home!
What I was doing 14 years ago was declaring my intentions. And it’s your intentions (or expectations) that declare your reality. I knew that one day Summer and I would own a home in that community. I didn’t know how it would happen. Or the bumpy road that would lie ahead. I simply made the decision, which started a series of events, that have lead me to where I am today!
Remember, Intention leads to behavior. Behavior leads to action. Action leads to personal development. And Personal development will eventually lead to YOU living your DESTINY!
See it. Believe it. Achieve it.
In the spirit of success
