Axioms for Wealth Building Success...

Posted on 9/25/2016 by Thomas (TJ) Underwood of Realty 1 Strategic Advisors

Learn why "now is the time" that you need to "get out of BED" and make more occur in your financial life...

Your motive or reason for wanting to achieve the success that you desire or need to achieve must be of the right type—wanting to do something for the wrong reason will not serve your long term interest! 

It is important that you realize that attaining your goals will take longer than expected and cost more than you estimated if you don’t have the balance, enthusiasm and desire that is necessary when working toward your goals. 


No one can stand between you—and your plan for your life if you "get out of BED" and make what you need to occur happen!

You must have clear and directed focus toward what you desire to achieve and you must be fully committed to achieving what you desire.

You must not let anything stop you as you march toward the achievement that you desire.  You must constantly realize that you can always reach higher than you are currently reaching.

In this discussion you will learn how you can use balance, enthusiasm and desire to achieve more during your lifetime.



There is a set time for everything on earth and in your due season you must have balance in your life. 

You must strive for excellence in all that you do!  Empty rhetoric sounds good but does nothing to move you forward! 

You must not only formulate goals but you must take action and strive to reach those goals at a level that is the best that is within you. 


You must focus on new and possibly improved ways toward achieving your goals.


You must train your mind extremely well for the success that you desire if you are to achieve at your highest level.

You can then achieve the joy that you desire and expect. 



Out of necessity—idea in you of something that can help you achieve what you need to achieve may occur.  When that occurs you may pursue your goals with more passion or enthusiasm.

You must use your table of imagination to enthusiastically pursue your goals.

You must confront your fears! 

Better yet, you really shouldn't have any financial fears!

Turn loose what is in your hand and rise up to achieve at a higher level! 

Hand—what’s in yoursdo you have balance in your life and do you have an idea of your path to success?

Head—what’s in your head (dreams, images, thoughts, ideas)—are you enthusiastically pursuing your goals?

Heart—what do you really desire?

If you don’t ask the right questions—you don’t get the right answers—and you won't take the right actions!


To achieve at your highest level you must declare what you desire in a bold manner and put it all in writing so that you can pursue what you desire with more enthusiasm 

You must give your mind a powerful guiding light and it all starts with you "really desiring" the goals that you set. 

By doing so you will do what you need to do in a timely manner and you will leave excuses and other negative interferences that your mind could create—behind you!




It is important that you are well rounded in all areas of your life, you enthusiastically pursue the goals that you create at the highest level that is within you—and you really desire to achieve the goals that you create.

You must use your talents and skills to do more in your life and it starts with you sincerely desiring more! 

You must state what you want to achieve (put it in writing), visualize what you want to achieve (see it in your heart and mind), and enthusiastically (be determined to take the necessary steps) pursue what you want to achieve by taking appropriate action.

Focus—use the skills you now have—add to your base skill levels in a balanced way and realize deep within that you are called to do far more than you are now doing. 

Even if you now feel comfortable where you are you must still "get out of BED" and make more happen in your life by gaining more balance in your life, enthusiastically pursuing your goals and having a strong desire to reach the goals that you set!

You must strive for more balance in your life.

You must increase your energy level and pursue your goals with more enthusiasm.

Lastly, in this discussion but not necessarily in your heart you must use what you have to achieve more—by desiring more.


You can’t remain in a comfortable position and "not" get out of BED to achieve more!

You can’t stay put and still reach your destiny!  

You can’t AIM low and still reach your destiny!


Get up early and make your BED appropriately. 


Even though you don’t have to be a financial expert you must gain the skills that are necessary to manage your finances more effectively.  You must train your mind to manage your finances at a higher level and you must desire more in your life even if you now feel comfortable.

Get up from under that COMFORTER (your current way of doing things)—NOW!

You must always realize that energy and effort will be required of you and you must be willing to expend more energy if you desire to achieve more.


Now is the time that you get out of BED!

Now is the time that you get AHEAD!
