Hello wonderful people!
Here is your weekly dose of inspiration, education and a list of what I’m enjoying or pondering.
I travel around South Africa training people how to invest in property. I see room after room packed with people who look at me hopefully, waiting for me to dish out something like an easy 5 Step Plan they can follow to reach financial freedom.
I start the weekend shattering illusions. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it.
“Why do you want to be invest in property?"
”To be RICH!!! is the loudest response.
Then I ask “WHY do you want to be rich?
”Silence. Everyone stares at me incredulously. Surely rich is a goal in itself? No explanation needed. After all, money fixes everything.
Does it? We all know a story of someone who hit it rich, won the lottery, inherited a fortune. Within one short year, they lost all the money they got. We explain it away by saying easy come, easy go. As if money needs to be worked HARD for. No blood sweat and tears = no money for you.So, if I were to teach you how to make LOADS of money through property, would you know how to hold onto it? Make it grow?
Chances are not. Not without a money mindset change.Let’s begin at the very beginning. Mindset is the foundation for your property investing journey. Let’s dig those foundations deep and make sure they are solid. Then, brick by brick, we will keep building until you have the knowledge and ability to go out there, create great wealth AND make that wealth work for you.
Sound good? Great, let’s get started.
Mindset is essential, if you don’t have the right mindset, you might make it through the first couple of deals only to falter at a later stage. I like to think of mindset as a method, a proven process that continually yields positive results.
Changing your mindset may take you more time or less than the person beside you. But that’s not the point. This is your journey and the point is that this works if you do. We are all looking for a quick fix or an easy solution. This method is not that (because, frankly, I don’t believe such a thing exists).
But if you follow this process, I promise you one thing:
If you do the work, you will see results.
