Are you a DREAMER or a DO'ER? Can you be BOTH?

Anyone up for a Roof Cleaning Party at the Superdome?

Great post Larry of All Pressure in Florida-

This is a quote from the link Larry posted:

Quoted From

"The cleaning was part of the Superdome's routine maintenance, stadium spokesman Bill Curl said. It's the first cleaning since the Superdome roof was replaced in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina.

Katrina's winds tore a gaping hole in the roof on Aug. 29, 2005, allowing rain to pour in. Brazos Urethane used 120 workers to install the new 9.7-acre roof at a cost of $32.4 million."

Think about that guys, some of us, most of us will NEVER see a contract that big.

A contract for 32.5 MILLION USA dollars!

In any world currency or denomination these are BIG numbers.

We all have reasons for starting our business of roof cleaning, pressure cleaning or both.

What are your dreams, plans, ambitions?

Where do you want to be in 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 5 years from now?

Have you thought about it?

Have some of you done more than JUST think about it, what about WRITING your goals, your dreams, your deadlines down on paper or in a business or marketing plan?

The law of averages suggests that 4 out of 5 businesses started will fail in 1-3 years, and only 2 out of 5 will make it past the 3rd year.

What's worse is that of those 2 businesses that do make their 3 year anniversary, only one will make it to the 5 year mark.

1 out of 5 seems pretty slim averages for success, maybe those of you that read this will change those averages, at least in the roof cleaning market segment.

The top 2 reasons most businesses FAIL is from LACK OF PROPER PLANNING and LACK OF CASH FLOW to continue operations.

These were my thoughts as I read this story of the multi-million dollar roof cleaning, maintenance and restoration contract.

Think out what I have written guys, this my be the thought that needs to change the mindset of your view of your business.

Some of you, may and most certainly can have the opportunity to get government of municipal jobs of gigantic proportions if your mindset is one that says to yourself and others, " I can learn and discover what it takes to run with the big dogs and do a job of this size".

This is the type of jobs I have studied and made mistakes and overcome all sorts of hurdles and obstacles to get. These type of jobs are the future of roof clean usa.

These are the jobs my company will one day get. Why? Because I have a GOAL.

"A GOAL is just a series of Daydreams , WITH Deadlines"- Vince Lombardi

To some my ideals and my goals might sound brazen, almost foolish and to others, certainly unobtainable, but to some others here who are do'ers and on this forum.

My goals may be similar to what they may one day want to accomplish.

I may not ever do a 32 plus million dollar job, but I believe if your self motivated and you have the skill, and partnerships in place to be "in the right place, at the right time"

Anything is possible.

Excellent post Dave,
It is ironic how you said all that,I can tell you have done your home work. If you can see it , believe it and think it,  it will come. Everybody needs to read the Secret The secret reveals the most powerful law in the universe. I myself recommentd the DVD verse the book cause the book is a complicated read... if you think it ,but dont dream it, on a daily basic, it wont happen.thats how the law works.. you have to think it day in and day out also I have a written 10 yr plan or goal sheet , do you know more people have written Wills than written goals, its like they are more worried about what is going to happen after they are gone than while they are here, amazes me.. 
everyone that reads this post please checkout the secret.. Its  a must read, on best sellers list for 26 weeks only to be knocked off by Harry Potter..

bottom line is this everything you obtain in life  "YOU ATTRACT It"
So dream BIG

I picked up "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill about 6 months ago. A very wealthy man put me in this direction after I asked him what made him 'tick'. It was written back in 1937 after 25 years of studying some of the most successful people in the world. Probably one of, if not the best books I have ever read (I read a lot). The "Secret" models the same principles as Hill's book. I write my goals down and review them everyday. I KNOW it has made a difference in my life.
