Every year my business partner and I go to a real estate conference to network, learn, mingle, regroup, build, etc. When we first went, we knew nothing. We were testing the waters, understanding the industry and hoping to meet people to grow with. That’s how we first met.

You don’t really realize how far you’ve come until someone else starts asking you the same questions that you once asked others.

A few days after this last conference, I was messaged by a guy I met while I was there. He asked me about the different things I’ve done, how I’m doing them, lessons I’ve learned and any advice I had. And that’s when it clicked for me.

I might not be where I want to be, but I am now where someone else wants to be. I am “in the game” as they say.

It’s so important to recognize these scenarios. Without situations that arise where you become aware of the progress you’re marking, you might not notice it.

Another relatable example is someone else noticing the weight you’ve lost. You’re working out everyday, eating right and making good decisions for your health, but you see yourself in the mirror multiple times a day. The progress isn’t as noticeable. But when someone else sees you, who you might not have seen for a while, they’ll notice and hopefully point it out.

This is why it’s crucial to take “progress pictures” whether it’s literally a picture (in the case of your goal being weight loss) or it’s journaling your journey. Maybe it’s the podcast episodes you record or the YouTube videos you make. Document each step of the way so that you can be more aware of how far you’ve come.

Progress leads to more progress. It’s an addiction that will propel you to each and every amazing milestone. Be aware of that progress and use it to create more.
