1. Discover Your Dream - This may seem silly. However, many people set out to achieve a dream and invest a lot of time, effort, and money into it just to find out that it's not actually want they wanted to accomplish to begin with. If you want to be rich, don't just choose the first job that pays the most. Work smart! So get out a pen and a piece of paper and write down exactly what your dream is. You may need to do this a few times before you actually discover what it is you want to do.
The fact is, most people are so blinded by money, freedom, work and many other factors that they have a difficult time finding out exactly what they want to do and for what reason. If you want to be a real estate agent because you want to make a substantial amount of income, you're likely going to fail. If you want to make a substantial amount of income and think being a real estate agent is going to be your pathway to that goal or dream, understand that it will take time and there's many more things to consider such as: Will you even enjoy the job or will you even make the amount of income your originally imagined?
Be a real estate agent because you want to make a good income but also because you want to help people find the best home that fits their budget and idea. Be a real estate agent because you like to help others and see your clients happy from your work. Life is not all about money; however, if you remain ethical and help others you will likely make more money than you would if you were just doing something to make some quick cash. This may take a few days or even weeks but trust me, once you finish you will definitely see the benefits of doing so.
2. Plan! Plan! Plan! - So many of my friends have started a business and failed. Before they started their business I had told them there are things they need to learn as well as things they need to master. They responded with laughter as they proceeded to wing it. Their businesses no longer exist because of it. This may be more difficult to do than the first step, however, in the long run; it will certainly be worth it! You have to plan! Create a Blueprint step-by-step on how exactly you will get to where you want to be! So, keep that pen in your hand and grab a new sheet of paper and do this with full concentration.
However, be prepared! This list will change. Don't fear change! Accept and welcome change. Some things will work great and others will not. In order to achieve your ultimate goals or dreams you have to understand the exact steps and the best route to take in order to get there. You have to plan where to begin, how to manage it, and how to capitalize with it! Of course, when you capitalize and achieve your goals and dreams, don't think for one second that's the end of it. If you want your dream to disappear, let it be the end. But if you want your dreams or goals to continue until your last breath, continue planning! This planning process may be tedious at first but it will get easier the more you do it but be prepared to do this on a regular basis!
3. Take Action! - I can't express this step enough. Some people are dreamers, some people are doers. However, the elite top percent of those in which has accomplished their goals and dreams with a growing success rate do both! First you have to dream then you have to do! If you dream all day, you won't accomplish anything. If you do all day, you will start a bunch of things that crumble into your hands in a million little pieces. You will likely get discouraged and give up after your dreams or goals crumble a few times. So dream and then take action!
After you have found out exactly what it is that you want to do, create a blueprint to figure out exactly how you're going to do it, and then implement that blueprint. Every time it gets tough, remember your reasons! Remember your dreams and goals! Remember why you are accepting the headaches in the first place and get back to it! This is easily the most important feature that separates the achievers and the failures. I personally, take action daily! I do, however, have off days. But when I do have those off days, I make up for it by putting in an extra 50% of action the next.
This is also the hardest part of achieving your dreams or goals. This is the main reason why most people do not achieve these things and they end up working a job in which they can't stand for their entire life and eventually retire and spend the rest of their life wishing they had done something differently. That thing they wish they did differently is take action!
Follow these steps and I guarantee you will see results and eventually achieve your dreams and goals. Figure out what you want to do, plan everything out, and then take action! I apologize if you thought the road to success was much more difficult than that, but it's not! Talk to any billionaire that has worked their way to the top and they will tell you the same thing that is in this article! Of course, there are plenty more little things you must do such as possibility getting some education or working for the investment or any other little thing. But in terms of the process, these 3 steps are it!
