Thursday Tip: Know Your Why to Know Your How
Michael Hyatt said, “When you know your Why, you’ll know your Way”. It is immensely beneficial to stop and think about your ‘why’ behind your goals. Why do you want to build wealth through real estate? Knowing your reasons and motivations for your goals will help you stay focused, build your plan, and it will give you the purpose and drive needed to achieve your goals.
So, how do you find your ‘why’?
Before you dig into the how of your goals, you need to stop and think about what is driving you to achieve those goals? If money was no object, what would your ideal life look like? What and who would you want around? What would you love to do every day? What if you couldn’t fail? What would you do if you had no obstacles in your way? Take some time and answer these questions honestly.
After you determine the ‘why’ behind your goals of investing in real estate and established what that financial freedom would help you achieve, then you begin to develop your ‘how’. For some people the first step to ‘how’ would be education. For others, it may mean talking to someone who is already successful in what we want to do. Start by taking baby steps and then build up to taking big steps. Achieving our dreams is not always easy, but the work is always worth it. Know that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Suzy Kassem said, “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”. We are also here to help you figure out your ‘how’; message us anytime.
Although, it all begins with identifying your ‘why’. This step takes more fortitude than anything you will ever do in real estate. Your why is the greatest force in determining your success.
Let me challenge you to share here, right now: Why do you want to build your wealth through real estate? Perhaps if we all shared our ‘why’ right here, we can encourage each other and help each other identify our ‘why’ we keep trying each and every day.
My reason for doing what I do, my ‘why’, is my son. He is the reason I grind out another day, the reason I buy another investment, and the reason I flip another home. Don’t get me wrong, I love the work I do. However, the reason I keep plugging away day after day is my son. I am deathly afraid of heights, but if my son was in danger up on a roof, I would stop at nothing to go to him and help him.
