In your Real Estate business or your Life in general, there is 1 thing I can guarantee, sometimes, things are going to be tough.
And, without a shadow of a doubt, I’ve found:
During the ‘hard’ times:
I experience PAIN
But, after the PAIN:
I experience HEALING
And after HEALING:
I experience LEARNING
(*I often call this the LESSON)
And after the LESSON,
I experience RESULTS!
Some of you have heard MY 1st Flip story before, but for those of you that don’t know, YES, I lost money on my 1st Flip Deal.
YES: I experienced (financial & emotional) PAIN.
Followed By: The LESSONS LEARNED from my decisions.
But: Then I later experienced improved RESULTS.
After I stopped whining & crying about my financial loss, a few months later I realized that if I were to try to Flip again and USE all of the lessons I learned from my 1st deal, I may actually be able to have some success.
SO WHAT HAPPENED?
I stepped into my Fear to do Flip #2.
A few months later I signed a contract on a new deal and ended up flipping this house and made over $65,000 in 2 months time from start to finish.
A few takeaways from my 2nd Flip Experience:
- The successful results absolutely would not have occurred if I had not applied all the lessons I learned from going through the 1st bad deal.
- Some things, you unfortunately can’t learn by just reading a book.
- That was more than I made working my job the previous year, lol.
But, the purpose of my message today is to have YOU to consider to begin to embrace the challenges and struggles you’re having in your life & business and begin to LOOK FOR THE LESSONS to be learned while you’re going through these times so you can improve your results in the future.
Recognize immediately when you’re: Complaining, Whining, Crying, etc (*We call this ‘Drifting’) and focus on how to improve your situation right away and how to prevent this from happening in the future.
The sooner you can ‘Recognize the Drift’ and shift your focus back to learning the lessons you need to learn, the sooner you can begin to create results in your life.
This is what it’s all about:
Creating results in our Life & Business.
So, in order to do that, it often times requires going through ‘Pain/Challenges’ in order to truly grow and learn the lessons we need to learn.
Is This Your Problem?
You’re afraid to face challenges and situations where you can possibly experience Hurting, Loss or Pain.
I’ve been there. And I’ve done that.
For example, alot of people ask me, “weren’t you afraid to leave your job and become a full-time real estate investor?”
My answer is this:
YES, I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS. BUT I WAS MORE FEARFUL OF LIVING THE LIFE I WAS CURRENTLY LIVING STUCK AT A JOB I DISLIKED AND KNOWING IN MY HEART I WAS CALLED TO BE AND DO MORE WITH MY LIFE.
Many of you think that you can grow without Hurting.
I get it.
That’s what I used to think as well.
Until I changed my thoughts.
And once I learned this lesson and Woke Up to this reality. Guess what? Life became much, much easier
So here is my question for you:
What situation are you avoiding in your life or Real Estate Business that if you would just face it head on and take care of business you KNOW that on the other side of this situation, you would experience, Learning, Growth and Success in your life by doing this?
