Have You Set Property Goals That You Are Achieving?
What have you done today to make money from property and to reach your property goals.
Anthony Robbins said:
“Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
- What action have you taken in the last 24 hours to reach your goals in property?
- Have you even set goals for you property business?
- If you haven’t set any property goals – what are you waiting for?
If you are still yet to buy your first property – what is holding you back? If you have bought five properties, do you have your plan set in stone to make it ten? If you don’t have goals how are you going to know when you achieve them?
As an investor or developer, setting the correct property goals is key to your success.
The truth is we all have goals in someway, even if we don’t speak them out loud. Our minds race with different goals all the time and some goals are stored away in a special place in hope that one day they will be achieved.
If your goals are just stored secretly they will probably never be realised. You have to take them out of their secret hiding place and make them known. Write them down and let your eyes view them on a piece of paper. Let your fingers feel a pen writing every single letter. And let your mind imagine them complete.
To quote Rupert Murdoch:
“The World is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow.”
Are you fast or are you slow? Do you see others around you that started out at the same place in life as you but have far surpassed what you have accomplished? Why is this? What are you going to do today to change this? NO – not what are you going to do tomorrow or next week – what are you going to do today. In fact what are you going to do right now!
We are not saying you should hastily set you property goals then open a newspaper and buy the first property you see. What we are saying is right now, right in this moment what are you going to do to make your dreams come true, what action are you going to take right now.
The action could purely be a thought and decision that you are going to view five properties a week every week without fail until December. Or that on Monday you are going to join up as a member of MyFico to find out about your credit report.
The Decision is The Key, Do Not Leave This Moment, Do Not Leave This Page Without Making It.
A thought that turns into a TRUE decision is already action. It is just action that has been completed in the future and it is just a matter of time before you reach it, but it is already done and dusted.
One of the biggest reasons people don’t attain their property goals and dreams, (and any goals and dreams for that matter) isn’t because they don’t have the ability, far from it, it is because they are afraid of making mistakes. They either want everything to be perfect before they start or they beat themselves up to the point where they give up at the slightest failure.
Are You Afraid to Fail?
Are You a Perfectionist Paralysed by Your Perfectionism to The Point Where You Don’t Take Action?
The key to failing is – IF YOU ARE GOING TO FAIL – FAIL SMALL! Don’t put all your life savings into one make or break property deal. Yes some people do do this and succeed. But many fail.
You need to take risk and you need to fail, failing is one of the best ways to learn. But don’t get knocked out in the first round. Build up your knowledge, increase your property education at every opportunity and learn about your opponents and where to hit to get the best results.
Learn when to duck the property market and hold unto you cash for a little while and learn how to analyse so that when you do go in for the kill you have a better chance of succeeding and living to fight another day, instead of being knocked out cold and blooded unconscious on the floor with know hope for a rematch.
What decisions are you going to make RIGHT NOW – decisions that will drive you towards your property goals. If you don’t make the decision right now, will you ever make them? Or are you going to be one of the slow ones off the mark, who watches as others pass them by.
What sort of a life do you want to be living in 1 year from now, in 3 years from now, in 10 years from now? Are the actions you have been taking up until this point propelling you towards this dream? If there not, then now is the time to rethink.
