Think BIGPosted on April 3, 2015 by
How can you get not only what you want but MORE than what you have ever wished for?
Nothing is Unreachable
Your success depends on your vision.
- Do you want to work independently, or do you want to work independently and be wealthy?
- Do you want to pay off your credit cards, or do you want to be completely debt free?
- Do you want to take a vacation, or do you want to travel the world?
When you expand your thinking, you can expand your success. Expect more and work knowing that you can have it. From the start, know how big you want your business to be and work as though it is already there.
Big business owners keep good analytical data on sales, acquisitions, expenses, and growth. With good analytical data, you can prove that you are a good business person, and people will want to loan/give you money.
Use your data to expand your thinking. If you are starting at X, multiply your thinking. How can you get to 2X? Data is a tool to tweak your vision and direction.
If you think like a business, you will act like a business. You must FIRST think that way, then do what it takes.
Focus on Where You Want to Be
Knowing where you want your business to be will help you to take the proper steps to get there. When we consistently refer to our own success, our chances go up: they become a reality. When you refer to your success as a possibility rather than as a sure thing, then you place doubt in your own mind. If you doubt yourself, how can you succeed? If you doubt yourself, how can others invest in your business?
When you are positive about yourself and your future, you are telling yourself that you CAN have what you want.
Do you think that as a coach I tell people that they MIGHT make it? No—I tell them they can. Why? Because knowing that you can means that you act with success as an outcome. Talk about what you want, not what you don’t want. Make your dreams a reality with your words and thoughts.
Real estate is one of the oldest businesses. Even though we now have technology and the ease of transaction, it is still relationship driven.
What relationships are important? The ones with clients, lenders, customers, and coaches. What information is important? Shifts in the market, financing, and customer needs.
Don’t get stuck. What worked last month may have changed. Don’t believe the maxim If It’s not Broke, Don’t Fix It. There are always ways to improve.
Your time is the most valuable commodity, so you must constantly look at your processes. By looking at how much time a process takes, you can shorten the sales and marketing cycle, decide what resources you need, evaluate how you can streamline: Should you get an answering service? Out-source stuffing envelopes and addressing postcards? Evaluating your process allows you to save time and make more money.
Raise Your Expectations
I have coached people who have hit their goals in the first quarter, but their businesses never improved beyond that. Why? Because they never re-evaluated and raised their goals and expectations. They missed the opportunity to have an over-the-top, fantastically stupendously great year.
When you achieve a goal, then add a another one, a more challenging one. Be disciplined and proactive. Try doubling your productivity—do great things. Success is the goal, but we can’t rest at one level. As you arrive at new levels, look for even better opportunities with which to challenge yourself.
Create a Team
We all need to have people who have walked before us and cleared the path, who have gone before and who are wise. Otherwise, we spend time learning the hard way, and learning the hard way costs money.
Let me give you an example: I have computer problems at least once a quarter. I could Google instructions and try to fix it and call a friend and spend hours of my time doing what I am not an expert in doing. If I do this, I am wasting time and money. Do I do this? No, because I have created a team for success. What do I do? I call my computer professionals, and they solve it in one hour
Having a team and being willing to pay people actually allows you to make MORE money. It stream-lines your time and your processes, and it de-stresses your life. A life with less stress is a life with more room for being successful.
The first person on your team must be someone who has blazed a trail: a coach. And you need this person in the first quarter of your first year at the very latest.
You can see from what I’ve said and from my other articles that I am an expert in real estate investment. I can guide you if you are willing to invest in your future. Let me help you to streamline your success. Let me help you to become independent of your current job, pay off your debt, and take countless vacations. Let me guide you to the success that you know you have before you.
I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you on your way to a successful 2015!
