I know that it might be desirable to simply be able to sit back, relax, and have money magically manifest in your bank account. But honey, that is not how this stuff happens! You have got to get to work and be willing to take massive action to see your goals come to life.
Got Wealth Creation Goals? Be Awesome and Do the Work
I recently watched a webinar by a fellow real estate investor. The speaker was talking about how so many of us have great ambition, yet still have nothing. The thing is that though big hopes and dreams may exist, fear stops us from actually taking action.
Here’s the deal: there are true steps to success that you cannot just skip over. You actually have to get to work to achieve your goals.
So, today we are going to go over the steps to success that you will need to do if you truly want to shift from wanting, but not having, to doing and receiving!
“How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.”
I know it can seem overwhelming when you look around and see the most successful investors and the things that they are doing. But, stop letting that get in your way. One step at a time is the only way to succeed anyway. So, focus on the step you are on and get moving.
I promise it is a whole lot less complicated than you think.
Steps to Successful Wealth Creation
Watch PAID FOR Videos
I know there is SO much free content available online anymore. But, if you are serious about wealth creation and truly want to reach your goals, you are going to have to invest in your education. This is where you will get the meat and potatoes on how to achieve your goals, so don’t skip it.
Watch the paid-for videos, do the worksheets that are required, do the practice drills, get on the group calls, etc. Participate and get involved. Don’t just sit on the sidelines.
Get Your Name Out There
The next few steps of the wealth creation staircase are to get out there and make yourself known! If you’ve been watching my videos or reading my posts, you know I am a huge fan of doing some basic activities to get started. Do the D4D activities (“driving-for-dollars” and “dialing-for-dollars”) to find new leads. Send out your yellow letter mailers. Get onto Facebook and make lots of announcements and posts about what you are doing and want to do. And, finally, get onto Craigslist and tell people there that you want to buy houses, too (do it my way…don’t be cheesy and salesy!)
This stuff is easy. It might take effort and work, but it is not HARD.
You can do this.
Talk to the Sellers
This is the one, ladies. While this is likely where you will be the most afraid, it is also the most critical step to actually achieve your goals. Until you start talking to sellers, nothing is going to change about your situation. You have to get out there and now start talking to the sellers that you have found.
Finalize the Deals
Now that you have talked with the sellers, you need to follow-up with them. Don’t just talk to them once and expect them to work out the deals. You have to lead your sellers and help guide them through this process of making a deal.
Then, you need to sign the contract and close the deal. This is really when it starts getting fun. You’ve made a deal after finding a seller, and now you sign the contract to make everything official.
I know you just did all this work to get the property found and secured with a contract, but the work does not stop there. Just like money does not magically flow into your bank account without work, tenants will not arrive unless you advertise.
Let people know that you have a property and you are looking for tenants. Post about it everywhere: Facebook, Craigslist, to the friends you talk to at work and at church, or wherever. Get the word out.
Collect those Checks!
Honey, this is where you have wanted to get to from the earliest stages of your wealth creation goals. Now, you have arrived. Once you have done all of the hard work, now you get to reap those benefits: collect those checks!
It takes a lot of hard work and diligence, but the payoff is the fruit of your labor. Depending on the process that you’ve chosen, you will receive the commission fee, lease option fee, monthly rent, etc. Now, we want those checks to come in every single month! And, I prefer them to come in whether I work or not.
Do the Steps to Achieve Success
You might think that you can skip some of these steps, but you’d be wrong. If you skip the coursework step, you will not know what to say when you get in front of sellers. But, here’s the beautiful thing: the stuff you have learned you already know and can do.
Once you do those first few activities and become knowledgeable about investing strategies and how to talk to a seller, you won’t always need to go back and relearn everything. You get to enjoy the residual effects of your new skill from now on! Now, you just have to put them to practice.
Wash, Rinse, and Repeat
Every time that you continue to do these things and take action, you solidify this information in your brain. It becomes like muscle memory. You get more comfortable when you talk to a seller. And, you will not be scared when you post on Facebook about what you do. The contracts will get easier to sign. It just keeps on getting easier and easier all around.
Eventually all of those initial steps are just a simple part of the process. You won’t even have to think about them, because they will become so second nature to you. Once you run up and down those steps a bunch of times, your wealth creation efforts will start to multiply and compound.
Partner with a Successful Investor
I love teaching my ladies how to actually see wealth creation come to life with investing. My course First Deal Done Fast was specifically created with the express purpose to help the newbie investor go from “know nothing” to fully informed and taking action!
The question you have to ask yourself is if you are truly serious about wealth creation. Are you? If you are, then I can’t wait to hear from you and see you get started on your goals. Get started now and jump into action to make wealth creation a reality, not just a sweet idea.
Take the Leap of Faith and Get to Work
You can do this. I want you to take massive action to get massive results to make massive money. But, you have to get started. Only you can take that first step to go from inactive to active. You have to take the actions and do the steps to get to that place where wealth creation is flowing in your life. The longer you wait to get started, staying stuck in fear, the longer you are going to stay where you are. Don’t stay stuck. Take massive action. Now is the time.
