Determining your Why will take care of the How
You might be puzzled at the title of this article: Determining your Why will take care of the How.
Here’s a quick overview of the article: if your “Why” is big enough, the “How” will take care of itself.
Think about it.
If “why you want to accomplish something” is big enough, then how you accomplish it will be secondary.
The “why” is your rocket boosters, strapped to your back, that will propel you toward your goal. On your way toward the goal, the “how” you’re going to accomplish the goal will fall into place.
That’s the 5-minute version of this article.

Years ago, I learned how to do real estate investing. I did this with a small amount of cash and a low credit score. Then, I did this using other people’s money. If a college dropout, me, can do this, so can you.
My “why” I wanted to learn about real estate investing was big enough that the “how” I would learn to be a real estate investor took care of itself.
If you’re “why” is big enough, the “how” will take care of itself.
Ask yourself: Why do I want to be a real estate investor?
What is your end-goal to being a real estate investor.
Once you’ve determined that, with a goal that’s measurable and specific, and if that end-goal (your “why”) is big enough, then “how” you’re going to do it will be figured out, sorted out, along the way.
Put yourself on a mission
Put yourself on a mission toward your goal and, along the way, situations, people, places will arrive into your life to help you meet that goal, if the goal is a worthy one.
After 18 months of finding, buying, flipping properties in Florida, I wrote an ebook that lays out the strategies on how to do this. You can find out more about this ebook at: www.thelanddepot.net/ebook-bundle/.
What is your “why”
What is your “why”. Determine your “why” before figuring out your “how” you’re gonna do something, or how you’re going to accomplish a goal.
For me, my “why” I wanted to learn about real estate investing was so I could have more freedom in life, more financial freedom, more time freedom, by having my money work for me instead of me working for my money.
My main motivation was freedom. To have the freedom to do what I want, when I want. For me, this means financial freedom, by working smarter not harder.
Real estate is one of the best ways to make money. Why? Because everyone, or almost everyone, needs a place to live.
You can learn this techniques and still be a “cool person”. You don’t have to be a “guru” or some guy who flies around in Lear jets. If that’s your thing, then great.
My “why” was so great that the “how” took care of itself. Why – I wanted freedom
How – I would figure out what I needed to do, in order to get that freedom
My “how” … Discovering how to invest in real estate, even using no money of my own, even with a low credit score.
Some called me a maverick real estate investor.
Others called me a rebel real estate investor.
In a way, I was a bit of both and then some. I was a kind-of renegade real estate investor, a combination of a motivated dreamer who wanted to learn this so much that, at one point, I was sleeping in my car, driving around North Florida, and even to South Georgia, scouting houses, and spending hundreds of hours at the tax accessor’s office, pouring over Platt maps, and learning everything I could about Parcel Control Numbers (Parcel Identification Numbers) and other terms associated with tax liens, tax deeds, and real estate research.
My “how” drove me to pursue this goal, to learn how to make money with real estate.
And I’m going to show you how you can make money with real estate, too.
