Hey there—so, in my last email I shared 5 awesome actions you can take right now to help you stay motivated…
…something we all struggle with from time to time.
Look, we all know how easy it is to get excited about something—say, your new real estate investing business.
But what happens when the steam runs out? What are some practical steps you can take to ramp the momentum back up?
Well, I’ve got 10 for you…
BTW: All of these are from my good buddy and fellow investor Cody Sperber.
So, the first 5 are:
- Take it 1 day at a time.
- Surround yourself with positivity.
- Create a vision board.
- Create SMART goals.
- Reward yourself.
Here are the other 5:
- Believe in yourself.
Self-doubt and limiting beliefs will crush you. And not just in business…
How many times have you thought you weren’t a great parent because of something you said or did?
Puh-lease, we are human. We make mistakes. We’re not perfect. Your parents sure weren’t, but you turned out just fine, right?
Just do the best you can in business, life and family. Believe in yourself.
For those of you who are spiritual, believe in a higher power and your higher calling, too.
- Acknowledge your positive attributes.
Be proud of yourself, your skills and strengths.
But be humble at the same time.
- Recognize your progress.
For me, it’s easy to beat myself up if I’m lagging behind or not accomplishing things I want to.
So it’s super important that you stop every so often and look around at what you HAVE done—and appreciate your blessings and accomplishments.
Maybe you sent out your first marketing campaign. Recognize that!
Maybe you made your first offer. Recognize that!
Maybe you just landed your 1st, 2nd, 7th deal… recognize that!
You deserve an atta boy/girl.
- Visualize accomplishing your goals.
Visualizing helps you realize your goals really are attainable. Plus, you’ll see that those goals aren’t that far out of reach.
And, you can break down those goals into actionable steps to get you there sooner.
- Don’t compare yourself to others.
Other investors are in different markets… and they’re doing different strategies… and comps and profits are different…
It’s not apples to apples.
Comparing can cause so much unnecessary negativity. So just don’t.
“Comparison is the thief of all joy.”
Just like the first 5, these are 5 actionable steps that you can take immediately. Right now. Today.
So get going.
