Two posts ago we started writing about excuses and their impact on your success. If you have not done the exercises in those posts, please go back and do them before reading further. If you did them and are still reading this one, you actually may be cut out for success and just need a little fine tuning. To get there you have some hard work ahead of you. No, not that kind of hard work. Doing the hard work to be a successful entrepreneur, whether that is as a real estate investor or something else, is a given. The hard work I mean is in disciplining yourself to change from excuses to results.
How old are you? That’s how long you’ve been working on getting good at making excuses. You cannot flip a switch and change all those years’ habits in an instant. It will take hard work to change, but the harder you work at it, the sooner you can put it behind you. Consider getting a coach to speed up the process. Make sure at the very least that you use a proven process for changing old habits and have someone who will hold you accountable. While a good coach will automatically provide those both, you may be able to find another alternative. We’ll talk some other time about changing habits. Search the web. I’m sure you’ll find lots of suggestions. Take the initiative. Go for the result. Don’t make an excuse about why it is not convenient right now. That’s the old habit. Start practicing the new habit. Prove you have the self-discipline to do it now, no matter what.
If you are STILL reading, congratulate yourself. THERE’S HOPE!! You did not make an excuse about why you did not want to finish reading. You have shown enough commitment to your success that you really ought to go for it! Best wishes! (Now go do the web search!)
