💫Today makes it one year since I built/moved into my house. It is a wonderful feeling to have a place you can call home.
About 2 years ago, I decided I was tired of renting and wanted to buy a house. I found @davidessuman,best realtor in Utah.We started house hunting and David showed me so many homes, but because I am very particular and like things a certain way, I didn’t like any of the homes. I started getting frustrated, and wondering if I would ever find my perfect first home. David was so patient with me and my diva-ish ways through the entire process. He’ll arrange showing,and I would like walk into the house and just be like, no, I can’t live here, I don’t want to waste my time looking. I got so frustrated and was so close to moving to Paris and living lavishly for a year with the money I had saved up to buy a house . Then David saved me, he was like, Pat, maybe you need to build your own house. My home took 8 months to built and it was so worth the wait.
Through this experience I learnt a few
1. Timing is everything. I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location for my first home
2. Do not settle. Get what you want and deserve.
3. You are capable. I built my house by myself and every single dime towards this house was mine. Ladies you can do anything you put your mind too. Society will try to tell you otherwise, Scratch that . I acknowledge that having a good partner who loves to crush goals just as much as you do can be beneficial and you can do things 2 times better if you have a solid partner. When I say partner, I don’t necessarily mean the opposite sex.
4. Stay humble. I have a house, so what! I worked hard, so what. There are people who work 10 times harder than I do and still don’t have the same opportunity that I have. When I went to Africa, I saw hard working people who still couldn’t afford anything.
5. DREAM and set GOALS. Beware of who you share your dreams and goals with. My dreams are the most precious thing I have and I’m not sharing it with just anyone.
6. Never take NO for an answer. When u hear these: U can’t, U don’t qualify, U didn’t get the position. U keep pushing, adjusting, improving, until U get a YES
My #pnptribe is in full on plan mode. I plan my week. I use my computer calendar to time block my day with exercise, work projects, commutes, and personal development time. I use #Trello for my tasks. And I make sure our food is ready to go for the week so we aren’t left wondering what to eat. What are you doing to plan for ease this week?
