Study...I can't tell you how many times this word left my mouth in the last 9 weeks of the school year that were done from home via Zoom. Some of the questions they were asking me, especially my daughter on the topic of math, I was probably not the best source. (This humors me because I was 2 or 3 classes from being a math major.) Study...go learn.
What about us as adult business owners? What about us as people in our 20's, 30's, 40's and beyond on the topic of studying? For our youth we were focused on studying, most of us, so we could make the grades to pass to the next level of education. My question: Why do most people stop studying whether it is for the benefit of growing their business, understanding and maximizing wealth, or even studying to obtain the skill sets to pick up a new instrument or language?
This reality has smacked me right between the eyes over the last couple of weeks. It is in the area building wealth through real estate investment. Now I've been in the industry since 2004, yet my focus and intention on understanding investment for myself has been limited. I stopped studying in this area to focus on residential sales, recruiting, and coaching business owners. My wife and I are seriously looking at this financial vehicle to build out our future.
I realized before moving forward, I need to honor the process of learning and studying what I want to accomplish. I am diving into wealth and investment books over the next few months. I plan on attending a training in September that will help me to build this opportunity making fewer mistakes. I am willing to study because I know the opportunities created once knowledge is applied.
Studying and learning new things is important in both business and life. What is it that you need to study for now to prepare you for future money moves?
Pelé, a Brazilian football (soccer to many) legend says, "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."
Cheers to leveling up in both business and life.
