Well, here we are, just a few hours before Christmas and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll still be wrapping presents and getting the last ‘bit and pieces’ sorted out!
But amidst all of that, there’s an important message I’d like to share with you…
OK, so it’s not strictly just a ‘Property Wisdom’ this week…
In between the fun and frolics of the festive season, I’d like you to really take the time and reflect upon what it really means to you to have built up what you have so far.
We often forget, during the course of the year, among the trials and tribulations of ‘life’, just what we are doing it all for. This may sound all very philosophical and that’s exactly what it’s supposed to be. It wasn’t until I started asking the ‘hard’ questions of myself that I started to get anywhere in lfe. So ask yourself this…
Is what you are doing making you happy and fulfilled?
That’s quite a soul-searching question and one which needs to be pondered and answered honestly.
All too often (myself included in days gone by) I meet people who are building their lives from a sense of fear, duty or misplaced loyalty…and it can make you miserable.
So I’ll tell you this…
The moment I decided to build my life from a sense of happiness, my world changed. No longer was I a slave to what I thought I ‘should’ be doing or what someone else had told me to do, think or believe. In the last chapter of my book, I talk about what a roller-coaster journey my property business growth has been and how, at the end of the day, the most important part is to ‘enjoy the ride’.
Let’s make a deal over the next year (not just for Christmas!!) to commit to doing more of what makes us happy. That way, we’ll be even more so!!
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Christmas and 2016 indeed! 🙂
