What’s Most Important

Somedays you are faced with what’s really important.

Yesterday I went with my brother to get chemo.  He was diagnosed with a stage 4 colorectal cancer and has been dealing with this challenge for over 2 years.  [If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, you should check out his inspirational website – Living For Hope.]

Cancer became the new normal in our family in February 2015 when he was first diagnosed, but yesterday it hit me again what’s important and why I’m doing what I do.

When you’re faced with mortality you understand that ultimately money is not important.  Having the most green houses or red hotels is not important.  Working the hardest is not important.

What is important is love, your family (those you are born to and those you choose), your health, and living fully.  For me “living fully” means that you can laugh, play, spend quality time with the people you love, and do what you were put on this planet to do.

I invest in real estate because it provides me the time and peace of mind to be more present with my family. Most of my income from real estate is passive, so it provides me time freedom.  I love that in the middle of a Wednesday I could be with my brother as he received chemo.

I invest in real estate because I love it.  I’m passionate about it.  I love to find properties and renovate properties.  I love improving communities.  I love how it helps create wealth for my family and others.  I love reading about it, learning about it, and teaching about it.  I love other real estate investors.  I especially love women real estate investors.  I really, really love real estate.  Could you tell?

When I am doing this (investing and doing Real Estate Investor Goddesses), I feel like I’m doing what I was born to do.  When I am doing this, I feel like I am living fully.

The money and properties is just bonus.  The rest of it is my why.

So why are you here?  What’s important to you?  Are you living fully?  If not, don’t let it be a cancer diagnosis that pushes you to change.  Do it now.
