My Aussie Tour: Success Begins NOW!

Well, after a month traveling around the U.K., I’m back home in Oz and I couldn’t be happier…

Traveling around Australia, of course.

As you probably are aware, I’m now on my tour for the entire month of August. That means 31 days of iLoveRealEstate Seminars all across the country, showing you how to replace your job with passive income from real estate investing.

It also means meeting many new students from all over the country, with new challenges and new opportunities. But, I’ve ‘hit the ground running,’ as they like to say in America. It’s quite exciting for me to get out there and meet new people and also see how you, my students, are doing.

The best way to recover from my U.K. holiday

Now, you might be thinking, “My gosh, after traveling for a month, you might want to take a week or two to recover from your vacation, Dymphna.”

But the truth is, teaching people how to change their lives for the better, teaching the principles of asset protection or how to negotiate a JV actually is my way of recovering from a long time away. I wouldn’t want to do anything else!

I know it sounds a bit over the top, but it’s true. Honestly, I don’t have to do anything that I don’t want to do. I could laze around the farm, take walks and do a bit of this and that, but that’s not who I am. I’m not the sort of person who can lay about doing nothing for very long. It’s neither in my nature nor a part of my personality.

And if you’re attending my Seminars, then you’re probably not that sort of person, either. But chances are good that you’re also not satisfied with where you are in life, in your job, or both and are looking for an alternative. If that’s the case with you, then congratulations, you’ve come to the right place!

The war between fear and hope

But if you’re only just thinking about attending but haven’t signed up, well, I’ve got a bit of advice for you. In reality, it’s less of advice and more about information on how our brains tend to function. You see, if you’re trying to decide to attend but haven’t yet, you’re in a bit of tug of war, aren’t you?

Ah, but that’s how the mind works, doesn’t it? You’re going back and forth in your mind of whether to make the leap. It’s a choice between hope and fear. You’re hoping to find a different path, a better path to improve your situation.

The very good news is that for thousands of my students, those hopes have been validated. Their dreams have been realized. They’ve successfully applied what they’ve learned in my Courses and changed their lives.

On the other hand, if you’re hesitating taking that next step, it means that another part of you is afraid. You fear making a change. You may fear spending the money to invest in yourself. You may be afraid that you really can’t do it. Or, it might be that you’re afraid of what your spouse, family or friends might say or think.

Couples, you are a team!

That’s not unusual. In fact, to one degree or another, it’s quite normal. But eventually, one side or the other will win out. As human beings, we are pattern-seeking creatures. We are uncomfortable holding two opposing ideas in our heads for very long.

This is especially true when one new idea threatens our existing pattern of behaviour. That’s where fear of doing something new, really kicks in. We fear becoming somebody different than who we are today. We fear stepping out of our comfort zone. We fear what others in our lives might think or say.

Most of those fears are unfounded or have little or no consequence.

The one exception is your better half. I always urge that both of you become involved in the Seminars.

That’s because both of you are actually one team in life. In order to be successful at anything, you, as a couple, must be committed. If you or your spouse is doing something that will change that life, the other needs to be on board, too. Or at least, you must be supportive of the other attending. You don’t want to have to choose between changing your life and preserving your relationship!

Welcome to your new life!

Do you know what it’s like when you finally do a chore or take a trip or do whatever it is that you may have been putting off?  When you’re finally doing it, there’s a release of chemical in your brain and a change in your psyche. You feel a sense of accomplishment and want to accomplish more from there.

That is the best way to look at your decision to attend one of my Seminars. You will feel it, you will see that everything you need to become free of your old job, to live your life your way, is right there. You will psychologically exhale with relief.

I’ve heard this a thousand times from my students in one form or another. The fear goes away and the hope becomes reality. One small step leads to bigger steps toward your goal.

When you make a decision to help yourself, things tend to fall into place. Not that everything is perfect; that’s never the case.

But you know what the best part is? There’s no competition with anybody else. There’s no race. It’s just you doing what you need to do to successfully begin your new life.

For those of you new to iLoveRealEstate, I want to say welcome to the rest of your life! I promise you, you’re going to learn more in a day than you have in the past several years! But more important than that, you’ll see the way forward, the way up and just how to go about it.

Oh, but I have to warn you: you will also have a regret here and there. You might regret buying that negatively geared property last year or selling that perfectly good cash flowing one that you inherited. But even if neither of these applies to you, the next one certainly will…

You’ll regret that you didn’t join sooner!
