Axioms for Wealth Building Success...

Posted on 12/03/2016 by Thomas (TJ) Underwood of Realty 1 Strategic Advisors

Learn how to use inspiration and encouragement to do more in your financial life on a daily basis...

It is amazing to think how fast 2016 has gone by and all that has happened this year.  Many have achieved financial success this year in a timely manner by visiting this site. 

Still others are coming to this site for the first time and they are curious—as they should be—as curiosity is a quality that we all should have as it provides you with the inner workings of your mind to look deeper and more critically into anything that you are curious about.


As December 2016 comes in and will soon leave (2017 arrival is just around the corner) I thought that it would be appropriate at this time to look at more inspiring and encouraging ways that this site could inspire you—as well as myself to do more in the coming weeks and months. 

Hopefully as I create this page, my thoughts will flow in a direction that can lead to increased success for you and also increased success for myself as well—as I need and have a real desire to do more at this time, and hopefully so do you.


Even though I possess many of the “qualities of success” within my mind and utilize them as much as possible to achieve more—I too occasionally get in a rut where I could use more inspiration and encouragement on a daily basis. 

Furthermore, my highly intensified writing style and genuine passion to see you achieve your dreams is even more important—as that is why this site is like no other on the internet!


This page is my attempt to not only inspire and encourage you to do more but also to inspire myself as well! 

I too have procrastinated and failed to complete a number of books that although partially complete—serves no real benefit to mankind—as they are really nothing at this time. 

Hopefully this discussion will inspire you and also give me what I need to complete a number of tasks in a timely manner.

It is important that we all see success in our future as we take the necessary actions to make that success occur!

Having said all that let’s dig in and see what we can all do to achieve more financially and otherwise in 2017 and beyond.


First and foremost you must pursue your goals and objectives with a spirit that you will operate in excellence at all times, you will consistently pursue your goals and you will be resilient and give it your absolute best on a daily basis. 


Your ultimate success must be your ultimate goal! 

You must possess on the inside of you a high level of fire, energy, passion and a real desire to achieve more—daily! 



You cannot do like those who talk about achieving meaningful goals but take no real action on a consistent basis to make it happen in real time! 



You cannot wait on others to take you to your dream—you must take yourself toward your dream and life purpose!



You must always realize that the inspiration and encouragement that you receive from this site—or any other source, does not exempt you from problems or situations occurring in your life that you may think are unwarranted.   

However, you will possess the tools and skills that are needed to navigate your situation and achieve at a higher level if you focus in on the pages on this site and comprehend at the highest level that is within you at this time.


When it comes to assessing your future you must ask yourself:


Is there something that I need to learn and do to make my dreams come true?

Is there something that I can do to head off a possible crisis in my life?

Am I using the skills that I currently possess to my and my family’s best advantage?


It is important that you gain the proper skills that you need to prevent bad things from happening in your life.


Do you even know how to use the skills that you currently have to achieve more and do your absolute best at all times?


Your journey toward success may begin with one small step but continues with giant strides—if you do it right!


Dreaming about the success that you desire serves no real purpose without action! 


Even if you are “off course” at this time you can change your course and make the necessary correction.  If it was easy we would all be where we want to be now (including myself). 


Even though the end of the journey may not be within view at this time and rocky roads may lie ahead—your continuous “action” in a more excellent, consistent, resilient and proactive manner will take you to where you need to be.


Goal—what are your goal(s)?

Objective—what is your end game?

Desire—do you desire to achieve at your absolute best that you have within you or are you just kidding yourself?


What difference will you make while here on earth? 

Will you impact in a major way those who you are around at a minimum?  Will you take managed risks and appropriate risks to achieve more while here on earth?


It is important that you realize that not taking risks means that you will not succeed in what you failed to take the risk to achieve!   100% failure to act means 100% chance that you won’t achieve!

Is that really who you are or are you destined to go far?


The goal of this article and site is to provide you and others the opportunity to achieve at your highest level of excellence.




It all starts inside of you...

At the same time it is my desire that this article and site will light a deeper fire within my heart to do more—so that you can achieve more and this article and site can possible play a pivotal role in helping you get to where you need or want to be in a more efficient manner.


May all of your dreams be attained…
