Where do you fit in? Are you accountable to yourself for the things you claim you desire in addition to also if not what are you doing about the idea?

7. Surround yourself with various other successful investors. Napoleon Hill discovered the power to associations between like minds individuals in addition to also the power in which could be harnessed when these like minded individuals came together for a worthy purpose. He defined This specific group of individuals as a Mastermind! What a powerful tool when used to the benefit of the group. Of all the suggestions I have provided, This specific one suggestion can provide for many investors, just what they need to stay inside the game in addition to also on top. Just knowing in which others are experiencing similar challenges or willingly share their successes in addition to also victories is usually enough for many to keep them involved in addition to also moving constantly towards their goals. Many REIA's provide a basic level mastermind environment. This specific website in addition to also others like the idea serve a similar purpose. in addition to also of course there are more formal real estate masterminds which are of tremendous benefit. Your action … find one in addition to also get involved.

8. Find a coach. I am not talking about a real estate mentor. I am talking about a real estate coach. You know a coach like the ones professional athletes hire to ensure they are always at the top of their game. I have always adapted Joe Gibbs, the legendary Washington Redskins head coach. He always said in which his job was not so much teaching professional athletes to perfect their game, although to be able help them to believe in which they had the ability to be the greatest athletes inside the game. in addition to also in which is usually what I am speaking about when I recommend you find a coach. If you were intimidated or challenged in any way regarding the previous 7 suggestions, are having difficulty holding yourself accountable or performing in a disciplined manner then you may need to find a coach! A coach who is usually willing in addition to also able to help you understand the false limits a lifetime of conditioning has encircled you with in addition to also still be able to reach down in addition to also help you bring out the real estate investor within … keeping you on the top.

Look, you have declared in which you want to be at the top. You want to be running your own show, reap the rewards in addition to also make a better life for you in addition to also your family. Do not blow the idea by trying to super- (man / woman). Stow the ego, learn to grow into the life you want, in addition to also do not go the idea alone.

To Your Success …

Pete
