Yes, it’s a great time to reset and aim for a big, worthy goal.
You want to have a moon shot to work on.
I sure do. It makes me feel alive.
Quick Question: Are you working on your own big challenge? Or are you working on someone else’s goals?
Hmmm…. I hope you’re working on yourself.
Here are three tips that I’m using to think big and chase my dreams.
Tip 1: Do What the Best Version of Yourself Would Do
Tony Robbin said, “With goals you can create the future in advance.”
It’s hard to create a bold, clear vision for myself and my business.
I have to really concentrate to imagine a large inspirational future knowing all my flaws.
One exercise that helps me is to imagine what the biggest version of myself would do.
I ask myself,
“What would Al do if he couldn’t fail?”
“What would a fearless Al accomplish and be proud of?”
Once I have a few ideas… I select the scariest one for my goal.
If your goal is scary and uncomfortable, then you know you’re moving in the right direction! That’s what you want! You want a goal that taps your potential so you live a life you’re proud of.
Tip 2: Fumble Forward a Little Each Day
Work at least 1-minute towards your goal everyday. Fumble forward. Be bad, be sloppy… don’t worry about perfection.
You want to row towards your goal. Even one stroke is OK.
Just advance. That’s the key.
Let me share my latest moonshot:
I want to use the ideas I wrote about in 40 Ways to Increase the Net Income of Your Rental Property to accelerate the payoff of my commercial building and fund an “endowment” for my kids.
That all sounds grand, don’t it? But I’ve got to fix the floors first.
One problem… one challenge at a time.
Tip 3: Look for Simple Solutions to Advance.
I learned this while working on my moonshot
I’m rehabbing a commercial building that has serious structural challenges. We had to get a massive floor beam in place to strengthen the second floor.
Check out the short video below that documents what we did.
Its shows that after a bunch of brainstorming and trial and error, we ended up using a principle that the Egyptians used to build the pyramids.
Your potential has potential!
You’ll know you’re using it if you’re scared and uncertain. That’s what it feels like to grow.
So, you’re invited to join me in staying off-balanced and uncomfortable.
I’m trying to boldly go where no landlord has gone before.
Will you join me in making things better for your family and community?
Leave a comment below. Tell me what you’re going to do, in the next 12 months, that moves you towards your goal.
I am moving back into my house with my family and renting out the JADU we have created. Hopefully within 3 months. I am wondering about approaching the landlord of the rental we are in now to see if I could sublet and turn this place into an extended stay as well. It’s a little scary because that means I’ll be marketing and managing my very first two rentals right off the bat. Not just one but two, with no experience at this yet. And it means an extra expenses and I don’t know if I can cover all my expenses yet. I am hoping I can pull it off.
I’m here to help you. The entire ES4L is with you. You’re not all by yourself.
