30 Jan WHY ARE YOU ‘SUCCESSFUL’ AND COMPLETELY MISERABLE?
Any of you out there have ‘everything’ you want and you’re still bored with your life?
You have the money, sex, house, cars, etc.
You still feel empty inside.
I get it. I TOTALLY get it.
Because I was once that way…
And I meet men all the time who feel like that.
Many of them think that doing some big real estate deals will be the solution.
Just making more money by leaving their job AND doing real estate will be the solution. NOPE and NOPE.
You see, business or real estate success is just that:
Financial success will fill one gap in our life, a Financial Gap.
The problem I see, is that so many people try to fill the other ‘gaps’ of life by trying to throw money on top of other problems, and this obviously doesn’t work.
Often times, when I talk with people who’ve had a lot of business/real estate success and I ask them how they feel, often times the response is
“I’m Bored” or,
“I’m Depressed” or,
“I feel Empty inside.”
I’m never surprised by these answers. I actually expect them.
The fact is that I use to feel exactly that way before…
I never fully understood or appreciated the success that I had achieved because I ‘overvalued’ the value of money…
Meaning: I thought it would make me ‘feel better inside’.
After all, that is the ONE THING that we all want ALL THE TIME: To just feel BETTER
But financial success alone could not make me ‘feel better’ about my relationships that were suffering; neither will it help with my problems with alcohol abuse nor help me feel a deeper spiritual connection.
Money can never solve those problems.
When we live with a belief that a single ‘event’ or ‘payday’ of ‘real estate deal’ will make us feel ALIVE when that happens, we will never be satisfied…
It took me a long time to realize that.
How do I know?
Because after making huge paydays in real estate, including months where I made over $100k, I still wasn’t satisfied.
I felt like, “DAMN!, What the hell is wrong here? Why am I so fucking unhappy?!”
Until I got TIRED of BEING TIRED and BEING EMPTY.
What I discovered was my focus was 90% business, and only 10% to my Faith, Family & Fitness.
I had been living life as a ‘One-Dimensional Douchebag’. :(
So, I became ruthlessly committed to find a way to:
- HAVE CONNECTIONS IN MY RELATIONSHIPS
- HAVE INCREDIBLE HEALTH & FITNESS
- HAVE A DEEP CONNECTION WITH MY FAITH
- STILL MAKE BIG MONEY
*BUT ONLY MAKING MONEY BY PURSUING WHAT I WAS 100% PASSIONATE ABOUT IN BUSINESS/REAL ESTATE
AND I WANTED TO HAVE ALL OF THESE THINGS,
ALL AT THE SAME EXACT TIME.
And here’s what I discovered…
→We were BORN TO CREATE.
→We were BORN TO FEEL ALIVE.
→We were BORN TO LIVE IN OUR ZONE OF GREATNESS!
⤷ I believe that God is the Creator.
⤷ I believe that God made us in his image.
⤷ I believe that because God is the Creator and because he created us in his image, we too, were BORN TO CREATE.
⤷ So, when I looked back on the success I had experienced, I saw that and thought:
I CREATED THAT
When I looked at all the SHIT in my life, I saw it and realized:
I ALSO, CREATED THAT.
But with this understanding, I realized that I had the ability to change I had the POWER to: CREATE RESULTS IN ALL AREAS OF MY LIFE.
NOT ONLY REAL ESTATE. BUT IN ALL AREAS.
THE GAME CHANGED. INSTANTLY.
But in order to CREATE RESULTS in other areas of my life, I was actually going to have to FOCUS & INVEST into those other areas of my life.
You see, when we achieve ‘Success’ or a big payday, it is rewarding and ‘fun’. It really is…
But that emotion alone flees quickly because, as Creators, we will immediately feel the need to create again and bigger.
When we’re not connected with the other areas of our life, it will not satisfy.
Consider that Life is a continual LEVELING UP process in order to achieve ‘Feeling Good’ all the time.
But not only in financial areas. *remember: it’s no fun being the One-Dimensional Douchebag :(
So, what did I do?
I COMMITTED to Change.
I began to invest heavily into my faith, into my family relationships and into my health and fitness.
Guess what happened?
Yes, I got CONNECTED in those areas.
BUT something else happened…
I somehow began to make even more money :(
It was it became clearer to me on what I truly wanted & connected into the other areas of life ⤷Ever think about how much time and energy you waste fighting with your spouse? Think about it…
⤷Ever think about how much more energy you have when you’re in shape & exercising? Think about it…
⤷Ever think about how greater your sense of purpose is when you feel that you are not only making money in business, but being called to lead, help & serve others at the same time? Think about it…
I began to focus my business efforts on ONLY my ‘Zone of Greatness’ activities.
I focused to only work on things I was passionate about.
And when the big paydays came
I enjoyed them more and saw them for what they were:
I knew they couldn’t fill any other ‘gaps’.
But I was OK with that, because I had filled those other gaps and was daily investing into those other Gaps.
AND the financial success I experience now has simply become an instant reminder to CREATE AGAIN!
But to create even BIGGER & BETTER!
So, my question to you is what part of your life are not meeting your FULFILLED IN?
In your FAITH?
In your FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS?
In your FITNESS?
In your JOB OR REAL ESTATE BUSINESS?
And, Who has the POWER to CREATE different results?
You got it…
Life is a Game my friends, are you playing ALL-IN?
Live It. Lead It.
Real Life. Real Estate.
