Hello, and welcome back to the real estate investing Made Simple podcast. I’m your host, Bailey Kramer. And this is the mindset Monday edition, where instead of talking about real estate, I talk about a mindset principle that you can apply to your life. Today’s topic is all about embracing the journey. So what is the journey?
The journey refers to the path that you take to reach your goals. It’s not always a clear path is oftentimes unknown. But that is the beauty of life. I used to think that I would reach my goals and be totally satisfied. I used to think that once I hit my goals I would achieve ultimate success that isn’t till I would reevaluate and realize that now, I want to target a bigger goal. Does this sound familiar? embracing the journey is all about enjoying all the time, energy and hard work you’re using in order to reach your goal. Let’s take exercising as an example. Let’s say your goal is to gain muscle and you set a specific target, like being able to do a 50 pound dumbbell curl. In order to reach your goal, you set out to go to the gym five days a week. If all you care about is getting to the 50 pound dumbbell curl goal, and you don’t enjoy going to the gym or eating the right foods. It’s going to leave you very unsatisfied. And here’s why. In order to reach your goal and do that 50 pound dumbbell curl. You’re going to need to be in the gym five days a week. And it’s going to take you weeks or months of consistent action for you to reach your goal of doing that fit pound dumbbell curl. You hate going to the gym and don’t find any pleasure in it. And all you care about is hitting your goal, I think you’re gonna be very dissatisfied. Because it will take you less than 10 seconds to ultimately do that 50 pound dumbbell curl, but it’ll take you months of preparation. And then once you do that 50 pound dumbbell curl, you’re going to set next goal to 55 or 60 pounds, or you’re gonna hit your 50 pound goal and say, Okay, I’m when I’m done with this whole gym thing, and not only lose your muscle, but you’re going to lose the ability to do that 50 pound dumbbell curl that you spent months preparing for. The journey exemplifies all the action you need to take to reach your goal. And of course, there are going to be things that you don’t love and don’t want to do. But ultimately, the target your goal will keep moving. So it is crucial to enjoy all the little steps that will lead to your target. And as the quote goes by be obsessed with the progress, not the outcome. Now think about your journey. Are you fully embracing your journey? Or are you strictly thinking about the end game? Remember, you don’t have to love every single part of it. But can you confidently look back and say you were enjoying yourself? While all the goals you set for yourself are extremely important, they’re just arbitrary targets we want to hit, but the journey, that’s all the hard work and sacrifice we endure, to reach our goals. Embrace the journey, embrace the hard work, embrace the sacrifice. Because once you hit that goal, you’re going to be setting a new, bigger goal. And remember, life is all about the journey, not the destination.
