Real Estate Newbies, are You Getting Your Life Supported?

I’m not at the moment but I understand the need for it now. I have to say at first when I heard Loral Langemeier of liveoutloud.com fame say to get your life supported I just thought she was talking about hiring a house keeper just because you could afford to do so. But no it’s because you need one to make your life easier. Now I understand what she means when she says you don’t have the time to do the laundry or go food shopping, etc. Your time is better spent on the things that will build your business – mainly Lead Generation. I didn’t understand it then because I was still thinking more like an employee instead of a business owner. Now that I’m thinking more like a business owner I understand that you need to be lead generating every single day – no exceptions or no laundry to worry about doing. Get your life supported and pay someone else to do that. I’m not yet in a position to do that so I have to go do my laundry now because I need clean clothes but shortly I will be delegating that task to an individual that I will pay to do that so I can lead generate when I need to.

Get Your Life Supported.

Real Estate Newbies Are you Making Cold Calls?

I am. For the first time in my life. You know why? Because I want a better life than I have right now and I have to help as many people get what they want so I can get what I want. I am ready to change the options that I have in my life and I’m going to do what is necessary to make that happen. I want to move into a nice house and be able to buy a nice car and in order to make that happen I have to make more money. In order to make more money I need to help as many people as I can get what they want. As a real estate agent, I have to help as many buyers and sellers as I can get what they want  — the home they’re looking for. I’m cold calling and will be knocking on doors to get what I want and also to grow to be the best person that I can be. What are you doing to reach your goal?

Real Estate Newbies Are You Taking Different Actions?

Wow…I hope so because it will change your life. Wohoo! I must say I am finally moving in the direction of where I really want to go. I really want to be an authentic business owner who helps those who need and want my help. I made my first cold call on Tuesday, April 5, 2011. I had never made a cold call before in my life and you couldn’t pay me to do it. I was so afraid it was ridiculous. What changed? I would have to say time, knowledge, more confidence in myself and feeling good about what I was doing and getting sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am taking actions that are not only helping myself but helping others also. You may think it’s all about oh she had to do it in order to make money but no because if I wasn’t going to change in that direction then I would just say ‘Bunk it’ and go get another j-o-b you know just over broke. And believe me these days that’s truer than ever before depending, of course, on what you are doing. Make no mistake there are plenty of folks out there making plenty of money and they are feeling no pain. A lot of us are not in that category but there is a whole different level of world out there. Those are people who are making the money and not feeling too much if any pain. I want to be part of that world. If you’re familiar with T. Harv Eker of “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”, you are familiar with his school of thought that states that your income will grow as you grow. Well, I’m growing and I’m taking my income with me thank you very much. I’m way over due as most of us are. I was petrified with analysis paralysis for years and you know what – no more. I truly want the same for each and every one of us because if we are all growing and changing into our highest and best self then the world can’t go wrong. We all prosper and we all benefit from each other’s growth.

So what actions are you taking Different? Get started now.

Until next time,

Real Estate Newbies Is Your Knowledge Power?

Sometimes it’s good to let someone else do the “talking” if you will. I’m sharing a great piece of content from none other than J.F. Straw who is a marketing genius and successful entrepreneur.

Knowledge Is Power!

Or is it?

by: J.F. (Jim) Straw

When you have learned that 2 + 2 = 4, you have gained a useful piece of “information.” – When you have learned that 2 apples + 2 apples = 4 apples, but, that 2 apples + 2 oranges = 2 apples & 2 oranges, or 2 pairs of fruit, or 4 fruits, you have gained all-important “knowledge.”

Information is nice to know. It lets you answer the questions on tests (or when watching TV game shows). But, until you learn to use that information in a practical application, it isn’t knowledge.

Any child of 2 or 3 years of age can tell you that 2 + 2 = 4. They have heard it repeated, over & over, until they can repeat it themselves. But, when confronted with 4 apples, they are at a loss to apply that information.

The same holds true for older students (and even adults) who can readily tell you that Einstein’s Theory of Relativity can be expressed by the formula, E = M times C squared. – Until they know what the E, M & C stand for and can use the formula in a practical application, it is only information, not knowledge.

A fine line exists between information and knowledge. That fine line is nothing more than “use.” — You can memorize bits and pieces of information all day, every day, but, until you actually use that information, it is not knowledge. Once used, information becomes knowledge and, thereby, power.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE; whether they be self-employed or wage-earners, executive or common laborer, are seekers after knowledge. They absorb information from every direction. The information they can use becomes knowledge, while the information they have no apparent use for is simply stored on the chance that someday it may become useful.

UN-SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE, on the other hand, claim to be seekers of knowledge, but, they believe that knowledge itself can be imparted. Because the books they read, the courses they take, and the plans they buy contain only “information.,” they are forever disappointed. Because it is ONLY INFORMATION (not the “knowledge” they thought they were going to get), they never use the information and, thereby, the knowledge they sought is lost to them forever.

Since I am the author of a great many books, booklets, reports, articles and editorials about success and making & using money (somewhere over 300 so far), those people stick-out like sore-thumbs on my customer lists. They write me long letters detailing their trials and tribulations and explain to me just why the information won’t work for them. But, not one ever writes to say “I used the information and it didn’t work.” – Had they ever used the information, that information would have turned into knowledge and they could have reaped the rewards they have coveted for so long.

If there was a way I could “force” those people to use the information they have, I could literally GUARANTEE their success. And, in those few cases over the years where I have been able to shame or intimidate people into actually using the information I have provided, those people have achieved successes they had only dreamed were possible.

The RULES OF SUCCESS used by successful people & businesses since the beginning of time have never really changed. Those rules have been written-down for all to read, learn and use, but they appear as “information” only and can only be changed to “knowledge” by use. If there were a way to “force” every person and every business to “use” those known and proven rules of success, there would be NO UN-successful people or businesses in the world.

Statistically, 90% of small businesses fail, and 90% of people live a life of sustained mediocrity, simply because they will not “use” the information available to them.

In your quest for financial independence you MUST learn to force yourself to use the information you have at your disposal. — No one (but YOU) is going to force you to assume that responsibility.

Of course, some smart aleck reading this is going to say, “Yeah! But, I’m not going to use any bad information.”

Granted, there is bad (counter-productive) information out there. BUT – there is NO WAY of telling good information from bad information, UNTIL YOU TRY IT. Judging the value of information without using it is like trying to judge the flavor of a pie without ever tasting it.

If you learn nothing else from life, learn that information only becomes knowledge when you use it – and – the information you have used or failed to use in the past is the reason you are where you are today.

YOU can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. No one forces you to be what you are, or do what you do (or don’t do). – What you have today is a direct result of what you did yesterday. What you will have tomorrow will be a direct result of what you do (or don’t do) today.

It’s up to you!
