Just one last note from the U.K. while I’m still here…
It’s been a fantastic trip and a very fulfilling experience for Brian and me. Traveling around Great Britain this past month has given us a chance to spend some much-needed time together and to make some great memories to boot!
And I must say that I have really enjoyed it here, and also have enjoyed sharing it–just a bit—with all of you in my posts and tour log. Thank you for all your emails and comments.
There’s no place like home—and an iLoveRealEstate Tour of Oz
At the same time, I’m like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. I’m looking forward to getting back home to Australia…
Back to the farm, family and friends…
Not that I’ll see any of them much.
That’s because, as soon as I get back, I begin my month-long iLoveRealEstate tour of Australia in August, and will get to see all of you! I can’t wait to get back and see what successes you’ve had, what deals you’ve done, meet many of you who are new to iLoveRealEstate, and all the rest.
That’s what really gives me a charge and gets me out the door running.
Success begins with you giving you a chance
But you know, it’s funny. When you step away from everything you know and do, you do give yourself the opportunity to find out what other interests catch your fancy, you discover things about yourself. I’m amazed at how much any of us can do, given the opportunity and the space to do it…
This should not have surprised me, since I’ve been saying as much in my Seminars and Boot Camps about taking control of your life. But a little reminder now and again never hurts….
And yet, it did surprise me…just a little.
Success for each of us begins with you or me just giving ourselves the chance to see what we can accomplish. But more than that, I can see how this directly relates to many of you who want to change what you’re doing in life. Taking this trip was much more than buying a plane ticket or booking hotels. It took time, planning, and a conscious decision to make sure we got out of it what we wanted and needed to get out of it.
Now, you don’t have to take a month-long trip to the U.K. or anywhere else to change your life, but you do need to do a bit of planning. You do need to do a bit of visualization and change your mental location. You also need to be able to “see” your new life, or at least have a plan on how to get there, before you can leave your old life behind.
You are exactly who you think you are…
No, you don’t need to radically change your physical location to change your life. You can begin exactly where you are right now. But you do need to change the location and destination of your thoughts and ideas about yourself.
That’s because you are who and what you think you are. If you think you are stuck in a dead-end job, with no hope of retiring or being able to live life the way you want to, then you are, indeed and in fact, stuck.
In order to change that fact, in order to get un-stuck, you first need to change your mind and change your mental processes. That takes a little bit of effort and determination.
But when you really think about it, gritting your teeth five days a week, going to a job you don’t love, stressing about your finances and your future year after year takes quite a lot effort and determination too, doesn’t it?
“Well when you put it that way, Dymphna…”
Yes, that’s the way I’m going to put it because it’s absolutely true. So in comparison, changing your life is not as difficult or such an enormous task as some people make it out to be.
How do you do it?
Decide to change your life—and then act on that decision
First, you have a few decisions to make. You must decide to make a change. You must decide to give yourself a chance. Then, you must decide to invest in yourself first.
Then—and this is very important–you must act on your decisions. After all, if you do not act on your decisions, they’re not really decisions, are they? Not acting on your decision leads to frustration and despondency and the whole lot goes down the drain.
Your first action that comes from your decision to change your life should be attending one of my iLoveRealEstate Seminars or Bootcamps.
Again, I’ll be coming to a town or city near you the whole month of August, so you’ve got no excuse.
Keep an open mind and relax
And when you do attend, come with an open mind. Relax. Leave all your doubts and fears behind. In fact, leave them at your workplace, that seems to be as good of a place as any for them.
Then, remind yourself that you’re not doing this to impress anyone, to prove anything to a family member, or any other such nonsense. Leave whatever has happened or been said at home. Then, walk in and learn the steps you need to take to change your life and set yourself free.
Next, know that you won’t be the only new face there. There will be many others as well. There will also be those who’ve already changed their lives. You’ll want to listen and talk with them—and you will.
This is your fresh start. You’re attending an iLoveRealEstate Boot Camp or Seminar for you. To change your life for the better, starting NOW.
I look forward to seeing you there.
