I used to go fishing a lot more than I do now. In fact, I was a bit of a fly fisherman. I had a fly-tying kit, would try to get inside the mind of a rainbow trout, and tie a fly I thought they would want to eat. At the time, I had a small creek that ran behind my house. I would envision a new fly, tie it up,  wait for the glue to dry, attached it to my leader, and head out to the creek. I had about 6 - 8 stations along this creek where I would try out the new fly, and catch a few fish. For these fish, it was catch and release; I intended to catch them again tomorrow, and I did. I got to recognize these fish, but I never named them. Just in case, you don't want to name something you might eat later.

In contrast to fishing with a fly, there are lures that are designed to agitate fish. These lures look like another small fish, and when you reel them through the water, they make some movements, and sometimes a noise, that agitates the larger fish to strike the lure. This type of lure can illustrate that in order to achieve our vision, we too must get agitated and strike.

Vision is important. Scripture tells us that without a vision, people perish. They lose heart. They lack the incentive to improve their lives, and lifestyle. They lack the drive that can motivate them to the next level. They become complacent. Vision keeps asking the question, "What's next?" "Where do we go from here?" "How can I affect more people?"

Investing in promissory notes secured by real estate answers all these questions. Notes can provide the agitation to keep moving, keep working to affect the folks involved. Homeowners level up; my investors level up; I level up. Each of the participant's levels up. Isn't that what life is about? Doesn't the thought of the status quo agitate you enough to strike? 

I was able to say to a new friend over the weekend that "when the 'why' is strong enough, then the 'how' will happen". I know that sounds philosophical, but the older I get the more I tend to be philosophical. 

This week I challenge you to get agitated. Get stirred up. Not at people, but at your circumstances. Unlike a goose, that has no choice but to fly south in the winter, we can make a change in our mindset. We have the dignity of choice and I encourage you to exercise that choice this week. There are soon coming lots of opportunities to invest in promissory notes. My attendance at a national conference this past weekend confirms that I am in the right place, at the right time. You can be, too. The time to strike is now. Take that inner feeling of agitation and strike while the waters are stirred. 

Thanks for reading. I always appreciate when you do.
