This is one of my posts that was hidden within another post I wrote. I had a lot of positive feedback from it so I thought I would make it its own post.
I expected offers to be accepted very low. And to this day I buy houses AT WILL for half price. AT WILL.
Remember, there are 2 types of people.
1. In the process people
2. Results people
In the process people make sure they create a list of things that need to get done, in the proper order, so they can achieve their goals. All the lights need to be green before starting the trip. Plus, as long as they "keep busy" that is getting them closer to the goals. And ya know, eventually if they do the right things long enough good things will happen and their goals will be reached. In the process people think like this: Mike hears about a good deal a few states away that he needs to get to it right away otherwise it will be snapped up by someone else. He goes outside to get in his car and drive there when he realizes it is snowing. He turns on his radio and sure enough their are warnings out that it isn't safe to drive. He parks the car and thinks "ya know, this seems like a good deal, but it is much too dangerous to drive that far and look at it, plus I need to do more research on it just to make sure the numbers work. I will keep busy during this storm checking the numbers and when the weather breaks and the coast is clear then I will go take a look at it. Mike never gets the deals because Matt gets their first. He can't figure out why Matt is so lucky all the time. Mike thinks "I am doing everything right, working hard, but I never catch a lucky break. Real estate just doesn't work.
Results people don't really care about the process that much. They don't cross all of their T'S and dot their i's before getting started. If they get knocked off course they just build a new path. They don't have a set routine. They just see the finish line and nothing else. If their are hurdles or obstacles in their way the just jump over them and don't look back. For example, results people act like this: Matt had to go across 3 states to get to a house he heard was a good deal. He had to get their today because this one wouldn't last. When he went outside he noticed that it was snowing and their were warnings not to drive because it was dangerous. He knew not getting their would be even more dangerous to his financial future, plus he figured if his car got stuck in the snow on the way he would just walk the rest of the way or hitch hike. He needed that deal, he was going to get that deal or die trying. He really didn't think the distance or the snow could stop him from reaching his goal anyway. He got there, got the deal, and cashed a big check.
This is such a big deal and I hope you understand my point. Take action, proceed with intentions of winning, and get the job DONE!
You've got to find your obstacles and call them out! Unsheath the sword, and do battle with whatever it is that holds you back!
