Ya’ll remember that goal that I referenced in a earlier post? Well, the actual goal was just to sit for the exam. On 6/26/18 I found out that I actually passed the exam! I was elated! The people at my job made a big deal of it, which was nice.
I was happy that I didn’t fail.
It also started me to thinking about the rest of my goals on my board. The BCPS exam has been on my goal list for almost 3 years. This was the first year that I was able to put real effort behind accomplishing the goal of knocking it out. Luckily for my confidence, I was able to achieve the outcome I desired. Now, I’m pondering the other huge goal that has been haunting me for the last two years.
The goal thats been haunting me for the last 3 years is my quest to buy my next rental property. This goal is daunting because from my rough calculations it would require quite a bit from me.
And isn’t this the point of goals? I know I need to grow, and in order for me to grow I’m going to tackle things that I’m not sure I can accomplish. So just like for this exam, I know I’m going to need to do 3 things to achieve this goal in this competitive market.
- Pray Consistently
- Break down the pieces that I need to have in place
- Important team members
- Real estate agent
- Property Manager
- Create a system for screening deals in the market I choose
- Aggressively screen deals (at least 5-10 daily)
- Be ready to move when I do see a deal – making offers.
Keep me honest as I try to move towards this goal!
Fly or Fall
P.s. One of the things that I have struggling with as well was figuring out how to reward myself with a job well done. I was having trouble at first, then I looked at the things that I needed and realized two things have been on the list for a while: A Laptop & some new clothes and shoes.
