I can’t believe how excited I still am after this weekend…
No, I haven’t been racing a catamaran in the bay or zip lining through a rain forest…though both sound like very good ideas for next weekend.
I’ve just finished a 3-Day Boot Camp in Sydney and I can’t tell you how fantastic it is to feel the energy and enthusiasm from so many people!
If you were there, you know exactly what I mean. But if you were not there, no worries because there are more of my Boot Camps on the way!
Believe me when I tell you that there are some very smart and capable people out there and it is a privilege to meet so many of you! I know that I’ll be talking with many you who attended in the near future as the next class of successful iLoveRealEstate.tv real estate investors…
But one of the things I wanted to talk about today has to do with the dreaded “P” word…
Because if there’s one thing that will stop you from turning your iLoveRealEstate.tv education into a million-dollar portfolio….
If there’s one thing that will stand in your way of replacing your earned income with Passive Income from positively cash flowing rental properties…
If there’s one thing that stands in your way of setting yourself free and living your life on your terms…
It’s PROCRASTINATION. Now, procrastination is not a four-letter word…but it certainly ought to be!
See the thing is, putting off what you want to do and need to do indefinitely leaves you with your dreams staying just as they are…dreams. Living with dreams is a sad existence… But living your dreams? There’s nothing better!
Sure, we humans are perhaps at our most creative when we conjure up excuses (mostly to ourselves) about why we can’t do this thing or that task today, but we’ll certainly got to it tomorrow, we tell ourselves.
But tomorrow can take quite a long time to get here for some of us.
And yes, I’ve talked about this before and talked about writing down the steps you need to take and holding yourself accountable…
All those things are absolutely true and they all work…for most people.
But for some of you—and you know who you are—you have put off your commitment to yourself, your family and your very success…FOR NO GOOD REASON! Some of you have even said that you had “intended” to come to my Boot Camp last year and the year before that!
But now that you have finally attended, you realize what is possible in a short amount of time. You’re also kicking yourself for wasting all this time (your words) to do what you wanted to do in the first place!
Well, I’ve been around long enough to know that when two or three people say the same thing, that there are quite likely a lot more of you out there in the same situation. That’s just human nature, isn’t it?
Look, I know how busy life can get. In fact, every one of the attendees at my iLoveRealEstate.tv Boot Camps is a very busy person. But, like most things in life, success is a choice!
Living life how you want to live is a choice…
And if you’re not living your life on your terms, if you’re stuck in a job that sucks the very life out of you each week, with no end in sight until you dance with the Grim Reaper, well, believe me, that too, is a choice. It is the choice you’ve made for yourself and your family. It is the life you’ve chosen to live…until you choose NOT to live that way.
But you’ve put off that choice, haven’t you? You’ve put off changing your life because_________________.
Well, you can fill in the spot on that one. Put whatever makes you feel good about not doing what you know you should be doing, what you could be doing…
Now, as you read this, look around the house. Do you have new set of furniture? A new flat screen television? Is there a new car in the driveway? If there is, ask yourself “why?”
Then ask yourself if any of those things are bringing you any closer to living your life how you really want to.
That’s a hard question to answer, isn’t it?
Now ask yourself where would you be today had you attended that training event you promised yourself you’d attend last year…but didn’t?
Now ask yourself the following questions: How many cash flowing properties would you own today? Would it be one? Two? Three?
Ask yourself how much passive income would you be taking in each and every week. How close would you be toward replacing your income from the job that is keeping you a wage slave until your teeth fall out and your best days are behind you?
Those maybe hard questions, but the answer is much easier than you might think. If your heart’s desire is to free yourself from your job, your boss and your current way of living, then put your money where your heart is…
I promise you that you won’t regret it.
