This article is for anyone that is busting-their-butt to chase the dollar and is still unhappy in their lives. If you are a returning fan and/or comment-er than I thank you. If you're new then Welcome.
Almost every fan of this website agrees that passive cash-flow is crucial to supporting your business's long-term health. I too agree. I mention this because being lazy for many of us is a luxury we do not choose to take because we would rather be working on our side businesses. Donald Trump once said, "I am not ambitious, I just love what I do." I'm paraphrasing from the video below.
Most folks would agree that an individual should be happy if they have:
- A healthy business and
- A large portfolio of properties
These are 2 signs to many Americans that an individual is achieving success and therefore happy, assuming all tenant-buyers are paying as agreed and cash-flow is very positive.
Have you ever worked really hard for something to then only be disappointed by your high expectations?
Most of you know my story. Before I begin investing in real estate and mobile homes I worked at 2 remedial jobs that I strongly disliked. Not only did I dislike my jobs I felt like a zombie on auto-pilot. Everyday was the same. The problem was not with my life or my jobs, the problem was with ME.
Luckily I had the clarity to search for a profession that would make me happy. Real estate investing is it. I wanted to work hard for a few years so that I could retire early and young. I'm not sure I'll actually ever retire from what I love doing.
Happiness is Right Now!
Please take a moment to remember the people, pets, and simple pleasures that make you truly happy. Keep this "happy list" in your mind to help control your own happiness. Happiness does not come from shiny objects, toys, status, or money. It comes from being fulfilled and growing.
