Killing the fatted calf

Looks like I touched a nerve with part of yesterday’s message…
( )

“But Tom, you’re not fat and you haven’t struggled with weight.
You don’t know what it’s like, so don’t mention it in your emails.”

Au contraire!

I tell you these things to inspire you and show you what is possible
if you take action.

True, I wasn’t huge.

But I was rapidly expanding at the seams.

And I didn’t like it.

Friends used to chide me.

Make fun of my gut and my ballooning face.

And I just didn’t like the direction I was heading in.

So I decided to fix it.

I fixed it by applying the same discipline and techniques that
I’ve used to build my successful businesses.

Yes, discipline was required (which most people lack).

And getting rid of some things that I liked (but that I oddly
don’t miss anymore).

And I focused on the 20% of changes that gave me 80%
of the results.

Just like in business.

If you don’t get results quickly enough to see some progress
and stay motivated and on-track then you probably won’t
stay with it.

The result?

36 pounds dropped.

Neck size shrunk 1.5 inches.

And a seriously substantial 4 inches off the waist.

So nothing fit anymore.

Previous custom tailoring gone to waste.

Everything looked baggy.

And belts didn’t hold my trousers up.

Time to go shopping.

A small price to pay for the improvement.

The change was indeed possible.

And not as painful as one might have thought.

And it’s no different in your real estate business.

No matter what shape you’re in, you can change course
and improve.

You can stop spinning your wheels and start doing
profitable deals.

You just need to get Traction.

You simply need to know where and what to focus on
to get proper leverage.

Identify the 20% that will get you the 80% of results.

And do it fast enough to stay motivated by the proof
that comes from success.

Every great journey begins with the first step.

Take that step here:
