Do you feel left out? Are you getting the impression the rich have their own club and everyone else is out in the cold without the cash?
Luck, genetics or the accident of birth don’t have as much to do with it as you might think.
Actually, it’s all in the mind, your mind. Either you think you can or you think you can’t. He (or she) who thinks he can, can and will.
I’ve been a big fan of marketer, [tag-tec]Dan Kennedy[/tag-tec] for many years. Dan is known for his ability to take people from the ground and get them to multi-millions levels in just about any kind of business. In his Renegade Millionaire Magazine he freely tells his secret.
“Their (multimillionaires’) success is not an accident. It is the result, largely, of the things they do differently from the masses-including their peers and competitors. Key words: do differently.”
He goes on to say it’s all about behavior. [tag-ice rich ]Behavior[/tag-ice] is something we can all control and change- regardless of the false information being fed to us by our culture.
How does this apply to real estate?
The biggest problem I’m seeing with hundreds of investors online is that they allow the markets to control them instead of the other way around. Sure, we keep preaching know your markets. Your markets are local. That’s basic.
But many investors often get into the “Tiny Mice Mindset”. They don’t think it can be done. One small hole in the market is good enough for them.
These folks need to grow larger horizons in their own heads. They need to get out of their holes and get moving. That’s where the real opportunities are.
“Your [tag-cat]income[/tag-cat] can never exceed your self-image, your speed of success can never exceed your understanding of what’s possible,” Dan goes on to say.
What’s one of his favorite books? Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. And an extra bonus- Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz. Read them. Again.
