Successful property investors have a clear idea of what they are trying to achieve, they have a strategy and they have a plan.
As the old saying goes “If you don’t have a destination in mind, any road will get you there” but successful investors know exactly where they are going and how they are going to get there.
By contrast many unsuccessful investors do not. If you were to ask a random sample of investors what they are trying to achieve, you’d probably hear answers like “security”, “income” or “increased net worth”, but if you pressed further and asked for details such as “how much income or how much net worth” or “by when do you want to achieve that figure”, the chances are they’d not be able to tell you.
If you have read any of my material before you will probably have realised by now that I am not a great fan of New Year’s resolutions. Although the spirit behind “resolving” to do something is admirable it strikes me that the majority of New Year’s resolutions are negative. In other words, they are often worded around stopping doing something or giving something up. And that is why, invariably, they come to nothing and are long forgotten, or at least abandoned, even this soon into the year.
Having said that, I am a great fan of goals and goal setting, and I attribute much of my success to having embraced this process.
What’s the difference between goals and resolutions? Well, quite a lot, actually.
And I’ve pit it all into a short Special Report which you can download for free, which will not only show you the difference between goals and New Years Resolutions, but it’ll take you a process to set your goals so that you can achieve far more than you thought possible this year.
It’s called “How To Set Your Goals for Property Success” and it walks you through a proven system developed by one of the top goal setting and personal achievements experts.
