“It is the people who can do nothing who find nothing to do, and the secret to happiness in this world is not only to be useful, but to be forever elevating one’s uses.”
~ Sarah Orne Jewett – 1849-1909, Author
What better way to be useful than to get involved. Community service and other volunteer organizations are where most people begin when they feel it’s “time to get involved” and be useful. I agree. However, I also agree there is no better place to start than right where you are. Can you say with all certainty that you are fully applying yourself in all your endeavors? Entrepreneurs are often idea people who stretch themselves thin with numerous ideas taking form. It’s wise to continually evaluate these ideas, knowing that only a few will bring success. As I’ve shared before, failure is part of the success process.
Where are your skills and talents most useful to others and your upward mobility? If you can’t answer that, stop and do it immediately. You can filter where you put in the majority of your efforts and where you choose to bring in other talented hands achieving what makes them most useful. Are you seeing a pattern here? Being useful is not about “doing something”, it’s about doing specific tasks that bring benefit to yourself and others. It’s often this simple idea of doing what you do best, that is easily forgotten when your life gets moving fast.
Real estate investing has many areas where you can apply your expertise. Coming up November 12-15th, Lee Arnold is calling you to Spokane, WA where you can put your talents to work and open your mind to learning from a man who knows where he is most useful to his family and community. He doesn’t open this opportunity up often, and he provides you with leads, transportation and education. You end the weekend understanding the process of gathering data and evaluating which deal is worthy. Want more?
