Today's Article: "How to Live a Life of No Regrets Only Results"
You all know my philosophy is to live a life of No Regrets Only Results. The way I implement this in to my daily life is by doing these three things: Having no fear, no excuses, and by taking action. Those three key elements are how I live a life of no regrets only results.
Now, the question is how do I live a life of no fear? I live a life of no fear by doing three things with the fear. Number one, I face my fear. The second thing I do is let my fear challenge and motivate me to succeed. And the final part of having no fear is to overcome it.
Everybody has fear. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t experience some kind of anxiety or fear towards something. With every decision comes some sort of fear. I have trained myself to face my fear. You have to be willing to face your fears as well. Calling a seller is scary. Trying to do a deal is scary, but again you’re buying a property and you’re selling it. If you can sell it for more than what you bought it for you make money. That’s the real simple part of the business. I’ve learned through trial and error that I must face everything, whatever scares me I have to do it. If I don’t face it, then it’s going to just overcome me. I’m a firm believer that if something scares you, you probably should do it.
The next step is letting the fear challenge and motivate me. I’m afraid of it, therefore I need to hone that fear and I need to overcome it. Am I always going to win or succeed at whatever it is? I don’t know, but I’m not going to let the fear control my life. I’m in control.
How do I live a life of no excuses? A couple of things. Number one, I choose not to accept the But Factor. The But Factor is, “Yeah, I’d like to do that, but I have a job. I’d like to do this, but my family member died. I’d like to do this, but it costs so much to travel to come to this thing.”
I choose not to accept the But Factor. I choose not to accept the Because Factor, “Yeah, he can do this because his dad paid all three, four years of his school. He can do this because he probably has some money. I can’t do this because” whatever, whatever, whatever.
And then I choose not to conform to conventional wisdom, the Conform Factor. We talked about the media. We talked about people who downgrade and down talk this business. A bunch of realtors down talk investors and they don’t have a clue. They’re making opinions based on stuff they have no idea about, because they’re not in the business. If you’re going to take advice from somebody, take advice from somebody who’s doing it not from somebody who has done it in the past and is now making opinions on it.
Those are examples of how I live a life of no excuses. I choose not to accept a But, I choose not to accept a Because, and I choose not to Conform. That’s what you need to do as well. If you make Buts, if you make Becauses, if you Conform and if you make excuses, your life is going to suck!
