Yep, that’s the sound of another year drawing to a close.
Good news is that another is just ahead. But here’s my question: WHAT WILL YOU DO DIFFERENTLY IN 2017 TO GET TO YOUR GOALS?
It’s an important question.
Believe me, I’m asking myself the same. (Though I’m happy to report that 2016 has been rather great, because I kept learning new things and am now knee deep in short-term rental properties that are cashflowing nicely, thank you.)
Okay, I’ll go first…
I’ve set a goal to get 50 short-term rental properties under my belt quickly. By this time next year I could get that done. Know why? I move fast, I don’t over-analyze and I take action.
That last point is critical to your success.
This taking-action thing is so critical, in fact, that it’s a driving theme in my book. If you don’t have it yet, here’s your chance to grab a free copy of the e-book. We may not be giving those away in the New Year, so if you haven’t already taken me up on this offer, do so by clicking into the box below.
Yes, yes… maybe you don’t move as quickly as I do, but I’m not asking you to. I am asking that you assess where you are now and where you want to be.
Likely that means you’re going to have to learn a few new skills, which is excellent. There is nothing wrong and everything right about learning new skills! (I still do it.)
And you’re going to have to bring a team or teams together to work with you toward your goals. Share your vision with others and they may just hop on board.
You’re going to have to put in the work required and stop asking how long it’s gonna take, because the answer will always be that you will work UNTIL the job is done. If you need more guidance on that topic, here’s an article I did on it:
Okay, so if you just stopped to read that last one, you’ll know it was a bit of a rant, but it did push some people into action finally, so it was worth it. Heh…
Know what else you’re gonna have to do to reach success?
You’re going to have to dump your fears and doubts. That’s a common recurring theme in this blog. There are lots of articles on how to go about shutting down the negative thoughts that run through our brains.
In fact, I created an entire series of articles and episodes in my podcast this past year on the things that hold people back from the success they desire.
Tell you what…
Instead of making you dig for those pieces of content, let me share one with you about How To Overcome Limiting Beliefs, because I think it will help you!
Listen to that episode if you haven’t already (or even if you have) and then move through the rest of the related content. There are articles that go with the subject matter, too. Print them out if they will help to inspire you and keep you going.
In the end, everyone has doubts and fears. EVERYONE. It’s how you respond to them that count. So may the articles help you get through them so you can have a fantastic, fabulous 2017!!
There are other things you’ll need to learn to be the biggest, baddest, best real estate entrepreneur you can be. As you might have guessed, I’ve created a number of content pieces (videos, livestreams and written) on these things.
But here’s one of my favorite pieces on what you need to learn. Give it a read and give me your feedback in the boxes below it.
Finally, as your business grows, expands and morphs (just as it has here at CFD), you’re going to have to keep up on all the latest technologies and tools that can help boost your productivity and bottom line.
Oh, and use the tools at your disposal!!
Hey, the Internet is a marvelous thing.
A lot of tools are available there absolutely free of charge; others cost a little and some cost, well, maybe you won’t need the costly ones quite yet.
There are apps for your phone, too. (Heck, there are so many wonderful tools to use that you just can’t count them all!!)
We published our list of 55 tools that help us keep things running smoothly here at CFD. If you didn’t catch that piece, now’s the time. You might want to print it out, too!
Here you go:
My point is that in 2016 we put out at least one article a week for a single purpose: To educate you on all things real estate investing. And we send you a reminder every Friday to go read the latest and greatest, as well as follow me on Periscope and Facebook Live, etc.
If you do these things… all available to you at zero dollars and zero cents… you will be doing something that helps to move your needle forward to your goals in real estate investing.
And, yes, we have courses… several of them. Some are available only through our Cashflow Core Membership, but some are open to anyone to purchase. These are the Advanced Courses, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be brand new to real estate investing to take full advantage of them.
In fact, there are a few in the Advanced Courses section in our Products Page that you should take if you’re a newbie!! They are meant to help you in a big, big way.
In keeping with that thought, we’re running a very special End-Of-Year Deal of the century and something we likely won’t be repeating. If you’ve thought about taking our education but just couldn’t swing it for one reason or another, now’s a great time to make that move… take that single most important action step.
Take a look at what I’m talking about… And have the best and brightest New Year ever!!!
