Some people always seem to get lucky in finding and getting perfect apartment deals. Don’t you wish you were like them? Don’t they drive you crazy at times? How do you become like them or make yourself luckier? What are you missing? What can you do that’s different? You’re ready for it, right?
Wouldn’t you love to get lucky and not only find your first deal, but actually close on it? Well, read on my friend…
I got this email the other day from a leadership trainer and in it was something I believe is profound, yet so simple. His email spoke on five ways to make you luckier. As I read though the email, I pondered on these 5 things and I looked at my life successes and agreed 100% of what he says. Here’s what he says and I break it down for you further as it applies to us real estate investors.
5 Ways to Make Yourself Luckier
Flow – Be in the moment. Be spontaneous. And stay there! You ever get into the flow of something and everything is going super well, then just like that, you talk yourself out of the flow? This is letting your “head trash” rule your life’s flow. So, next time you’re in the flow, pay attention to the negative words that enter your thoughts. Thoughts rule. Say no to stinking thinking! In other words, when a smoking deal comes into your life, don’t push it away with unbelief and doubt. Follow up no matter what and flow with the deal and let it takes its course – this could be “the one”!
Come from Love – There are only two ways to go through life: coming from fear, or coming from love. Coming from love means you are coming from “more than enough” – and that's a vibration that people can feel. Therefore, approach your deals and sellers with love and understanding and watch the magic happen. People don’t care what you know until you show that you care. If you take on this attitude, I guarantee deals and opportunities will show up! Guaranteed!
Come from Service – Most people are stuck in WIIFM: “What's In It for Me?” truly successful people are service-minded people who are tuned to WCIDFU: “What Can I Do for You?” This is the key to achieving phenomenal success in real estate. Come with this mindset when you’re trying to get the seller’s motivation or during negotiations and you’ll increase your chances of a successful outcome by 10 times.
Trust – Realize that you don't have to know everything before you start. Just do it.
Action – Just do SOMETHING. Taking no action is the greatest danger of them all. Remember, inaction is a form of action, and has its own consequences. If you don’t take action, events will control you, you will be constantly reacting instead of acting. Life rewards action is the bottom line.
These are 5 traits of truly wealthy people. And the wealth I’m referring to has everything to do with money, relationships, family, and health. So, if you want to put yourself into position to “get lucky” and experience life to the full (the way it was meant to be!), take a good look at these 5 traits and ask yourself if that’s what you’re being. It’s just a matter of time before your perfect deal shows up because of it. If not, then it’s not too late. Be intentional in making the changes necessary to Be.
