09 Nov 3 Simple Ways to Be Successful
Want to know how you can be successful?
It all comes down to 3 simple things, and I'm going to go through them right now.
#1: Find a way to hire a coach
Notice how this is not “hire a coach,” because we understand that sometimes you can't just go out and do that.
People tell us all the time they don't have the funds or resources to hire a coach. That's okay. Most of us didn't either when we started out.
There are creative ways to hire a coach and educate yourself, even if you don't have the funds. Find a partner to go in on it with you. Or find someone who can fund it and give them a certain percent of your profits until they've made their money back. With COVID, you can access your 401(k) and IRA without penalty.
If you feel like money is holding you back, don't let it. There are creative solutions out there, you just need to put your mind to it. If you believe in yourself and your abilities, you will be able to profit from hiring a coach. Guaranteed.
Invest in yourself.
#2: Choose WISELY who you speak with, what you listen to, what you read, who you meet, and how you think
You've heard it before and it's true. You are the sum of the people you hang out with, and you need to think carefully about who you spend your time with and who you listen to.
When you're down, your true friends show up…
Who's that going to be? And do they have the skills and experience to lift you back up?
#3: Work in Chambers
Do you ever feel overwhelmed with everything you have to do? Well, one of the most common mistakes people make when this happens is that they let one project affect the way they tackle other projects.
Chris talks about this in his book and it's something we teach at Smart Real Estate Coach… When you're working on a lot of different things, you need to chamber them.
That means you focus on one thing and you get it done…
Then you lock it into a chamber and put it away. You don't think about it anymore, and you move on to the next project.
Then you do the same thing with that project, and the next one.
Whatever these “projects” are, it doesn't matter. The point is, you focus on one thing, complete it, and then it's done and you're working on the next thing.
You don't go back to it, you don't occupy your mind with it, and you put 100% of your focus on the task at hand.
We still have people telling us they're stuck from the 2008 crash. You have to chamber these things and get on with it.
Finish it, lock it away, and then move on with a clean slate.
I hope this helps you get more done and I hope you start thinking seriously about how you can use this knowledge to make quantum leaps in your business.
