Goal Setting Tips For Real Estate Investing That Will Help You Achieve Your Dreams
Do you have specific goals that you want to achieve and if you do, are they business goals or financial goals or are they personal development goals, or all of the above? Successful real estate investors know the power of setting goals – especially passive income goals – if they are to achieve financial freedom. Goals are the best way for successful investors to gain a clear idea of the action items they need to implement in order to achieve the life they dream about.
Maybe you are wanting to replace a portion of your salary by the end of the year with a certain amount of cash flow. Or maybe you have a personal goal to eliminate as much debt as possible by the new year. Or you may have smaller goals like just wanting to make a little bit more passive income this year than you did last year. Better yet, maybe you have long-term goals of being completely debt free and financially free within no more than five years so that you can leave the rat race entirely.
Whatever your aspirations are, this post will help you to design measurable goals that are also achievable goals that will give you a clear picture of the planning process you can construct to help you achieve living your best life.
Smart Real Estate Goals For Investors
Successful goal setting starts with self-reflection. The first step you want to take is to set aside some time – a couple of hours at least. During this time you will want to really reflect on what your hopes and desires are no matter how big your dreams are – even if in your mind it’s not an attainable goal. Write it down. Go through the key areas of your life – your financial goals, your family and relationship goals, your spiritual goals, your health goals, your professional goals, your goals around contribution, etc. Whatever area of life you want to improve, let’s start there.
Remember a time in your life when your dreams and goals were big? And you felt unstoppable? It’s time to dream big again and focus on the freedom you want and deserve. Revisit those ambitions you had that you might have let fall away because they didn’t seem like realistic goals. The best goals are the biggest goals. Don’t think small. Think big. Here is your chance to think about what you really want in your life, and instead of dismissing those ideas as too lofty or unattainable, I want you to get creative about how you CAN achieve those goals.
The Next Step
In the next step, you’re going to identify your unique purpose. What is your superpower? Everyone has one. How can you use your differences or your superpower to your advantage? So, for example, if you’re a person who likes investing and also helping others to achieve their best self through passive income opportunities, then real estate syndications may be where you can make the most impact.
As a side note: some of this work may entail you moving out of your comfort zone. In fact, I will almost guarantee the bigger the goals you have, the more uncomfortable you will have to become in order to achieve them. But it will be worth it….so keep that in mind.
Finally, you have to figure out what you want your life to look like. You are the author of your own story, so write it. And make it amazing. This is what living your life by design is all about.
One other idea is to create a vision board. Vision boards help your reticular activating system (RAS) to “find” those opportunities in your everyday life. Suddenly you will start to see a manifestation of what it is you’re focusing on, and these concepts all come together to help you create the life you’re seeking.
Goal Setting For Commercial Real Estate Investors
One of the best goal-setting methods is the Rapid Planning Method. This is an extremely effective way to implement your goal-setting structure. RPM is an acronym for:
- R-Results oriented
- P- Purpose-driven
- M-Massive action plan
This is a great way to systematically get your goals clarified and help you to put them into action.
The Rapid Planning Method – Results Oriented
Again, you have to figure out what it is you really want before you can implement any steps in how to achieve a specific goal. Focus on the areas of your personal and professional life that will move the needle in the direction of your dreams.
In the beginning, you may not see how these goals will affect your real estate investing approach, but over time you will see that your decisions around how you are investing will shape the achievement of these goals.
The Rapid Planning Method – Purpose Driven
Next, you want to ask yourself: what is my purpose?
So some key questions you want to ask yourself are what do I want my legacy to be? What impact do you want to make on your children, your grandchildren or your community, or the world at large? Will certain individuals or your family reap the benefits that you have created for them through your investments or your philanthropic contributions?
Even if you don’t quite know what your “legacy” is going to be quite yet, you can still work toward personal growth or community outreach. You can begin to create a mission statement for yourself that outlines how you are going to make a positive impact. The important thing to remember is that when you come from a place of giving or service rather than getting, then your legacy will naturally unfold in ways that you may not be able to imagine today.
Maybe your larger goal is to create an impact on communities by investing in affordable housing and helping to make those communities as safe, and clean as possible for the residents so that they can thrive. If so, every real estate syndication investment should meet that objective so that your goals are aligned.
So, to recap, what impact do you want to make in this life? Take time to think this question through then write it down.
Goals that are written down have a much better chance of being achieved.
The Rapid Planning Method – Massive Action
Finally, take massive action. Write down the action steps you need to work toward these goals. Make a list of all of the ways you can achieve these goals. Create an action plan in which you decide the exact steps you’ll take to move closer toward your goals. Make a list of the things, events, and connections that may help you achieve your goals. List anything you could do and the resources you may need that would help you to get that much closer to your dreams.
So, for example, If one of your goals is to earn passive income without becoming a landlord, then let PCRP Group educate you on how real estate syndications can help you achieve your financial goals. You can invest right alongside us so that we can help you achieve your financial goals.
The RPM goal-setting techniques will help you to identify what real estate investment strategies will help you get to where you want to go and will help you identify the types of real estate properties that make the most sense for your timeline.
Real Estate Investment Goals
Many individuals love the idea of real estate investing but don’t quite know how to go about getting started. Here at PCRP Group, we can help individuals invest passively in large commercial assets across the US with our expertise, knowledge, real estate network, and opportunities. We know what a profound difference real estate investments can make to one’s wealth-building strategy. That is why we want to be able to share real estate education with as many people as possible because it really can be a life-changing opportunity for so many.
Let’s take an example of projected returns on a real estate syndication.
In most of the commercial real estate syndications that PCRP Group invests in you will find hold periods of between 3 – 5 years. The cash-on-cash is typically projected to be 7-10%, and the profit share that passive investors can receive when the asset is sold is projected to be 40-60% of your investment capital value. So what that means is if you were to invest $100,000 you would have an opportunity to potentially earn an ADDITIONAL $100,00 – potentially 2x your money in 5 years. Not a bad deal, right? Considering you didn’t have to do any work. Like Robert Kiyosaki said: “The wealthy don’t work for money, they have money work for them.”
Remember, we always want to be clear that these are projections and are never guaranteed. All investments have risks, and no one can make guarantees. Whenever we present an investment opportunity you can be sure that it has been vetted very carefully.
We look at every opportunity to mitigate risk which is why we concentrate on areas of the country that have the least amount of climate risk possible as just one of our mitigation strategies. When you invest alongside us, you can rest assured that we have done everything possible to ensure capital preservation and steady returns.

We believe that the passive income you can earn from real estate syndications can help you get to where you want to go in life. But no matter what goal-setting strategy you utilize, just be sure to approach the process with an open mind and with purpose. Goal setting is extraordinarily powerful, so be open to the journey.
Remember, your mindset can make or break your achievements, so be sure to stay focused and positive on your path to success. The RPM method of goal setting is a great strategy to help you achieve what you really want out of life and to help you live your life by design.
