Step Fourteen - Bottle Interim

How To Double Your Way To A Million In 28 Steps


I haven't made any money to add to DTAMP, but in the mean time:

I have been collecting Bottles and Cans over the past week and it looks like there may be enough to complete Step 14.

There have been some ideas I have wanted to implement to try to raise funds for DTAMP but can not because of Rule #3. The first Fifteen steps require the use of the actual funds and does not permit you to use replacement funds.

This can be very inhibiting during the first Fifteen Steps because it doesn't allow you to pay for things using a check or egold or paypal, etc. You have to use the actual original coins and bills that were gained during the trades or transactions. I am looking forward to completing Step #15 so that I will be more free to try different projects and plans.

Lessons:

(1). Looking at how well other people are doing in comparison to you, when they are doing pretty much the same thing as you, can in some cases, be encouraging. It can inspire you to work harder and keep you going. But there is a danger as well. When you see how great they are doing with their ideas and you are floundering along trying to just keep you head above water, you can get discouraged.

It can be difficult to seperate what you are doing from what they are doing and if they are doing really well, you may feel that there is no way you will be able to keep up. This is sometimes referred to as "keeping up with the Joneses" and usually affects people that are more competitive.

The great thing about the "Double Your Way to a Million" Plan is everyone moves along at their own pace and on their own path. Each person will move along in different ways and proceed at different speeds. Keeping ones competitive propensities under control can help to not breed discouragement.

If you do start to become discouraged you may find taking your focus off what others are doing and throwing yourself into some ideas you have, no matter how small or trivial, to improve your current Step, will help to encourage you and keep you moving forward.

Motto: It is only "one" found penny.
