According to the calendar, summer has now officially hit. The first day of summer, also known as the summer solstice, means we are amidst warm weather, long days, and maybe even some well deserved rest and vacations. What it also means, however, is that this year will be halfway over soon! Most of us know goals are important, and have our own list of goals we plan to accomplish this year. How far along are you? Are you behind on your goals? On track? Ahead?
Many of you are probably familiar with the “Dear John” letters (Dear Jane for females) that were sent to their spouses or significant others. This was usually done to inform him or her that the relationship was over.
We certainly hope you don’t actually receive a letter like this, but what if your subconscious could talk? What if your real estate investing goals, hopes, and dreams told you how they really felt? Would they praise you and talk about this year’s accomplishments with excitement, or would you be expecting to receive one of these Dear John letters from your investing hopes and dreams?
Unfortunately your real estate investing goals don’t give you warning or feedback when you are slacking off or procrastinating. What if they could? Perhaps the Dear John letter below is what you would receive. This is meant to be a reality check and an eye opener for those of you who need a little motivation to finish 2015 off strong. Make this the year you achieve your real estate investing goals and accelerate your financial future faster than ever before.

Dear John <Insert Name Here>,
I hope this is no surprise to you, but things have not been going very well between us this year. I’m sorry to say, that you’ve lost your shot. I’m leaving you, I need to move on.
The fire, the burning desire, and the hopes and the dreams that we once shared have faded. The goals and plans for the future have been replaced with procrastination, inaction, and excuses. “I don’t have time”, “I don’t have the money”, and “I don’t have enough education” are commonplace now.
You’ve known me your whole life, John. I am your goals and your motivation. I am your dreams of financial independence. I wanted you as much as you wanted me. If you REALLY wanted me, you would have found a way to make things work. The years of indecision are starting to add up. My biggest fear has always been running out of time and looking back on missed opportunities, shattered hopes, and broken dreams.
The timing never seems right anymore. I call out to you every day, “I am your real estate investing goal, come and get me!” You are always too tired or too busy with other things to notice me. I have to move on, John. Where is that excitement you had when you talked about our future together and all of the great things we would have? My heart skipped a beat whenever you talked about a life of cash flow, financial independence, passive income, and IDEAL Investing. The new real estate business, the early retirement, the tax savings…all of those things originally made me want to be a part of your life.
Your goals will never fail you or let you down if you embrace them. Why wouldn’t you take action to make me a part of your life? I have to move on John, I must.
