What’s up, guys? Hey, welcome back to the “Real Estate Investing Secrets” show. I’m out here in my backyard. Crack of dawn. The sun is just starting to peek out right now. My question for you that I want to discuss today is are you killing your goals. Probably 8 out of 10 of you, 9 out of 10 of you may be listening to this right now are. Let’s talk about it today.
Welcome to “Real Estate Investing Secrets.” We’re all looking for freedom and the opportunity to live better, more fulfilling lives but most of us were trained our entire lives to work for someone else and chase their dreams. How can we use real estate investing as a vehicle to achieve financial freedom? My life is dedicated to answering your real estate investing questions and helping you build an investing business that allows you to change your life and the world around you and to enable you to turn your dreams of financial freedom into a reality. My name is Mike Hambright from flipnerd.com, and your questions get answered here on the “Real Estate Investing Secrets” show.
What’s up, everybody? Mike Hambright here from FlipNerd, “Real Estate Investing Secrets.” Hey, I want to talk to you today about . . . actually, I have a question for you and the question is are you killing your own goals. A lot of us set goals and we want to do something but we don’t take the steps to get there. Are you up at the crack of dawn either working on your goals or getting things out of the way so you have time to focus on your goals? Right?
A common scenario is that people have these big aspirations. Just think of New Years. Here we are. We’re at the beginning of Q4 here and a lot of people are thinking about doing stuff and truthfully in their mind and if you’re one of these, just recognize that this is your challenge. It is that you are saying, “Well, here’s what I’m going to start doing next year. Here’s what I’m going to start doing in January.” January 1st is some magical number. It’s just something on the calendar. It has nothing to do with the length of your life or some timeline of your joy or happiness. Right? If you wanted your goals bad enough, start today. Start right now. It’s Q4. You have 90 days left. Why would you wait to start something that you really want to accomplish? That’s just some mechanism that we use to put something out there that we don’t really care that much about that we say, “Well, it’s important so I’m going to make it a New Year’s resolution. I’m going to get to it later.”
But the truth is if you want something bad enough, you have to start today and that’s why the failure rate for people that are starting their own business, especially in the real estate investing industry is so high. You keep pushing things out. Right?
The next question is do you give the best of yourself to your goals? Like are you using the most energetic part of you, the best times of the week, the best times of the day towards building your goals or do you go do a bunch of stuff all day long that you don’t want to do and you hate and maybe you have to do it? I understand that. And then you come home and you’re tired and you’re like, “Well, if I’m up for it, I’ll start working on my business or my business plan or I’ll start trying to raise money or I’ll start trying to learn this or that.” Or are you saying, “Hey, my goals are so important that I’m going to apply my scraps of my life, of my energy to those things that are important to me. Be honest with yourself.
By the way, are you doing that with your family? Do you work so hard doing something that you hate so much that you come home and you’re burned out and you don’t have time for your family? Maybe flip on the TV and just drift away and pretend like nothing else is going on. Right?
A lot of us are guilty of these things and I’ve been guilty of these things from time to time. But you have to recognize what you are doing. You’re giving the best parts of you to something that you don’t care as much about that is not part of your dream and your dream is getting the scraps of you that that’s all that’s left in the day. If I have anything, I’ll try to work towards it. And you often never have anything left or you have something else that gets in the way. Right?
This is a problem. Look, I’m on a mission to help create millionaires usually through real estate investing because that is what I know and that is what I do all over the place but I need you to start recognizing that the best parts of your day, the most energetic parts that you have, the biggest parts of your dreams need to be focused on right now when you have the most energy. If that means getting up at 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. to work for a few hours before you go to do something else that you don’t want to do or you don’t . . . necessarily is part of your long term vision, then do it.
You will not regret it. It’s hard to get up at 3:00. I’ve done it before but I had a goal so big and a vision so big that I just couldn’t get to it during . . . the way my day was structured and I said, “I’m going to get up at 3:00 every day and I’m going to work from 3:00 to 7:00 when I take my son to school or when things start kicking off with my family and I’m just going to use that time to just go all in on creating what I was working on.” And it was magical. No distractions. I was focused. When you start to find when you get up that early or when you dedicate that time you don’t want to waste that time. So it’s productive.
So anyway, that’s what I wanted to talk about today. Don’t wait for New Years to set some arbitrary goals that you might just . . . they might die the day that you announce them because you have a history of setting goals and not doing anything about it. Start right now. Whenever you’re watching this, start right now. Your dreams cannot wait. You will do nothing but regret that down the line. I promise you.
