He assumed he would be wealthy someday… but not today :-(
He changed his mindset and the wealth flooded into his life…
Dave is a top real estate salesperson. Young, vibrant, and full of possibility. In his mind real estate was a stepping stone to his true vision of being a real estate investor.
His vision board was filled with images of condo buildings and apartments he imagined building and investing in some day.
For some reason, that didn’t translate into the actions necessary to be an investor and build wealth today.
I asked him, “What is your first investment going to be?”
What came out of his mouth was a telling sign of his true mindset…
He told me that someday in the future, once he had enough money, once he was a little more established, once he had higher sales production, once he blah blah blah… excuse, excuse, excuse…
Once all the conditions of life were perfectly aligned (which was apparently based on his “all knowing assumptions” about how life worked)… then… and only then... he would start living his dream of being a real estate investor.
He tried to convince me that… until all of those conditions were correct… he would have to slug it out as an agent and work for every dollar like a slave to his business and his life. Ugh!
His Vision Board Was Like Putting A Pig In A Dress... And Hoping It Would Turn Into A Princess
Mindset was the real issue stopping him from achieving his goal of being a real estate investor.
I asked Dave to use a process to shift from “I know how the world works and I’m limited by it” to “Hmm? I wonder what is possible?”
To do that... he need to start an investigation. I asked him to set aside his assumptions about what it was going to take to be an investor and follow the 8-step manifesting process: a process that naturally and effortlessly puts you on the path to achieving your goals.
Here are the steps he followed:
• Set an intention to be an investor.
• Start giving The Gift™ to everyone you interact with.
• Don’t worry about how it will all happen.
• Tell everyone who asks you... what you are looking to do.
• Step over know one, connect deeply with everyone.
• Play The Perfect Game™
• Ride the waves of energy as they rise and fall.
• Open your eyes to the ideas and opportunities that come your way.
He agreed to follow the steps and 7 days later his first investment fell in lap from a person he never expected it to come from.
The floodgates opened up and he’s been on a an amazing path to building wealth ever since.
Here’s an expert of the email he sent me…
“As I reflect on what I've done and where I'm at, I keep recalling this conversation we had in August 2012 where you asked me what I wanted to do. We talked about investments and you asked why I thought I needed money to be an investor
Now, in February I will be done with a new building in hoboken that I bought March 2013 for $1million. It cost $1.25mill more to knock down and rebuild. And we will sell out in March of this year for $4.2mill. I put $100 of my own funds in to form the LLC, and I'll make $1million plus the commission of $200k
Last month I bought half a block in in my city for $3.7million. I did put in $400k of my own funds that I made From wholesaling and flipping. We will build 16 condos and I will make $2.5million in 2017. My Ira is worth $400k even though I've only ever contributed $100k. I own 15 rental properties and I'm selling 3 other rental properties next month to profit $550k. I'm happy! I feel very, very rich.” - Dave
Everything changed, when he changed his mindset from, “this is how life works and I’m limited by it” to “Hmm? I wonder what’s possible?” The 8-Step Manifesting process is the key!
Now it’s your turn to go from Dream Board to Dream Life. What will you manifest today? What’s been on your dream board forever... but never comes together?
