◆ Taking action is the turning point of life
It's too natural to say that what you are doing now is to make yourself in the future, but if you think so, you can see that your turning point can happen now and anytime.
For example, in my case, I had always wanted to gain freedom during the last year of office work. At that time, I was working for a foreign company and my salary was high, but I was very busy. This lasted for about three years and I felt the following:
・ I want to work at my own pace, reducing pressure and time
・ I want to do it myself, not in a position to advise others
As an environmental creation, I came up with the idea of making “unemployment income”. I thought that if I had a source of income that didn't depend on my labor force, I could live even if I left the company, and I could maintain my life even if I started a business and failed.
So, when I looked for what to do, there was no side work at that time and there were no smartphones, so I chose real estate investment by the elimination method.
Once the methodology is decided, execute. I read and fished real estate investment books, looked for real estate agents who were strong in real estate investments, made appointments, and visited and interviewed every weekend.
At the same time, I worked on savings and savings to increase my own funds, which were only 700,000 yen [because it was an annual salary system at that time, because my salary did not change until the following year, I had to save].
I went to see the property information as soon as I received it, asked for a bank loan if it was judged that there was no problem, and repeated the purchase if it passed the examination.
This is my turning point and it is now.
◆ Think carefully about how you want to live and put it into practice
The important thing is to recognize the gap between the direction you envision and the environment where you are now. Then, think about how to eliminate the gap and execute it.
If you put it in a letter, it feels like "what a matter of course", but the reason you can't do that is probably because you can't afford to think about it.
If you work, you can narrow down your choices to some extent, but there are endless choices in life, and it's hard to judge which one is better, so it's tedious and often tedious.
There is a reason why young people who are always hanging out with friends tend to be shallow, and it is because it is difficult to take time to introspect alone with others.
Even for adults, if you don't have the time, you may be swayed by changes in the environment, or you may be dissatisfied with the current situation even if you are dissatisfied.
◆ "What I want to do someday" is "I'll do it now"
Also, if you think you want to do something like this in the future, you can do it right away. This is because if you don't do it when you want to do it, you tend to stay forever, and above all, you can't draw opportunities.
For example, if you have a desire to “climb a mountain”, go to the mountain immediately instead of “if you have enough time”.
If you go, you will share your experiences with your colleagues and friends. Then, someone who heard it might say, “I will introduce you because I know such a person” or “Take me because I am also interested”. From there, there is a possibility that new friends will be created and the knowledge and opportunities to go to the mountains that cannot be climbed by yourself will be rolled up.
Similarly, if you just want to do your job in the future, no one will notice it and nobody will raise it.
However, for example, people who are now sales but want to do planning and marketing in the future. While doing the current sales, we continue to make proposals in the office saying “How about such a product” and “How about such a sales promotion method”.
Then, a brand that “that person actively proposes plans” and “it seems bright in marketing” can be transferred to the relevant department or assigned to a related project.
Even if you want to read a book, but you are too busy to take time, buy it and put it in a stacked state.
A large number of new publications are always released, and many of the published books are removed from the shelves and disappear. And I forget about the book. Then you may miss the chance to meet a book that might change you.
However, if you buy it and place it on the bookshelf, you will be able to see the title of the book at a moment and be aware of your interests. It's an opportunity to read because I have time today.
Your life will surely pass away in the same way that you had in your life. Life seems long and when you try to do something, it's unexpectedly short.
Do what you want to do not postpone, do not make the "someday" deadline invisible, do it now. It ’s just a little bit, and you ’ll need to get your hands on the seeds of opportunity.
