Success is marked by many factors – drive, grit, faith, discipline, and so on. But there is one factor that is common among some of the most successful business people out there – the commitment to helping others.
Do you want success? Then never forget that your success can come when you’re committed to helping others either in the way of solving a problem or improving the quality of their life.
Success And Service
Many people want success, but not everyone is willing to take into consideration that the more people they can help, the more successful they will be. Now, success for you may be defined as making a certain amount of money per year. Or maybe it’s living a certain lifestyle or having complete financial freedom. For someone else, it may be creating their lives so that they feel a particular way each day, like peaceful or joyful.
No doubt you’ve been blessed with a skill set and passion to help others in some way. As humans, we tend to like to help others when they’re not caught up in ego or power trips. As a real estate investor, making a lot of money is a lot of people’s goals, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I believe shooting for financial freedom is a must!
But if you’ve only got the heart to make the cash and not necessarily the heart to help others or solve a problem for them, you may be limiting your success.
You can look around at those who’ve enjoyed great success in history, from the automobile to the computer, and around these inventions were intentions of making money AND improving the quality of life for everyone.
This ought to be your aim as a real estate investor too – helping the motivated seller offload their home because this is what they want and need. Your success comes when you can effectively package your skill set and passion for service to those who are in some sort of dire housing situation. Those that need to sell their home and sell it fast!
You help them and then you’ll be experiencing success as a byproduct. This is a universal law of the universe; the more people you can serve, the better off you’ll be emotionally (because it’ll feel great) and business-wise, as you’ll be earning more money.
Who Are You Serving?
You know your target niche: motivated sellers who are wanting to get out from under their house as fast as possible. As you continue to run your business, be sure that you’re offering them a top-notch service. Remember that it’s not just about closing another deal. It’s also about connecting with the homeowner at a deeper level – a more intimate level where they can come to know and trust that you have their best interest at heart.
It’s providing them a service that will ultimately afford them a better quality of life. Rinse and repeat this kind of behavior and as a byproduct, you’ll certainly be enjoying success.
