Christy Tu talks to us today about about achieving success by setting goals and being accountable for your actions.
By discovering your wants, needs, and goals, the next step is taking action to achieve success.
Mike: Welcome back to the FlipNerd.com REI Classroom where experts from across the real estate investing industry teach you quick lessons to take your business to the next level. And now, let’s meet today’s expert host.
Christy: Hey there. I’m Christy Tu, creator of Goal Getter Mindset. You’re watching the first of a three-part video, “How to Achieve a Goal Getter Mindset.” Today we’re going to talk about highly effective habits to achieve success.
Mike: This REI Classroom real estate lesson is sponsored by VirtualStaffNow.com.
Christy: I just want to thank you for joining FlipNerd. It’s nice to be your host today.
How does one make a dream a reality or carry a plan through completion? Well, number one, you want to adopt the discipline of setting goals.
Take, for example, if you just can grab a blank sheet of paper, and in the middle of the paper draw a straight line. On the left side you want to write at the very top, “What do I really want?” On the other side, the right-hand side, at the very top you want to write, “What am I not willing to settle for,” in your physical area of life, financial, professional, personal, relationships, mindset, spiritual, and giving back.
Know your “why” after you examine that. What’s your “why”? Why do you wake up in the morning? Why do you go to work? Why do you want more money?
See, I didn’t grow up with wealth. But guess what? My husband Jimmy and I run an empire, so that when we have children, we can take care of our children’s children’s children even when we’re buried in the ground. That’s my “why.” I made a decision to change and recreate my whole life.
Number two, you want to stay accountable. Every Monday morning my students and I get together on an accountability call, and I help them stay on track. I keep them on their toes, and I help them challenge themselves. Find yourself a coach. If you want more information about how you can participate on a weekly accountability call, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. On the subject line you can just add “Discovery Session.”
Number three, you want to take action. Reaching a SMART goal, which refers to goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time framed is supposed to be tough, or it wouldn’t be worth it. Try focusing on productive actions, those that will carry the most weight to inspire the greater results.
Achieving your goals is a process, and it won’t happen overnight. Most goals require consistent effort taken day after day, week after week and month after month.
I don’t believe that knowledge is power. Applied knowledge is power. So I want to leave you with a quote. I want to close it off with a quote from Tryon Edwards: “Thoughts lead to purpose, purpose go forth in action, action form habits, and your habits decide character, and character fixes our destiny.”
Thank you again. My name’s Christy Tu, creator of Goal Getter Mindset.
