In a recent video, I spoke about how I met my wife. My story of how I first met Amanda is a lesson for everyone on the verge of venturing into something new. Don't ever give up on the dreams you have! If you are willing to take action and learn along the way, the sky truly is the limit. There is so much in the world worth doing but most people never end up doing it.
There are simple ways to get what you want out of life but most people will never apply them. Many people have no idea what they need to do to get what they want and, of those that do know, many will never take action. In this article, I am going to cover 3 steps that you can use to move closer to your dream life. If you read this article and actually follow these steps, you will be ahead of most people in the world. So read this article carefully and take notes.

1. Constantly stretch yourself
As soon as you are comfortable in a situation, you should be looking to do something bigger. This means constantly putting yourself in new situations where you are uncomfortable. Most people find this hard. However, I realised that being nervous and being excited are actually the same thing. When I am waiting to go on a roller-coaster I am nervous and excited; it is all a matter of perspective. You should start getting excited about new experiences; doing things you are not yet an expert at; trying new approaches and experimenting.
If you are excited about doing new things, you will want to continually push yourself. It doesn’t matter if you embarrass yourself, just keep getting up and going forward. Never stay in the same spot; always be heading upwards. If you apply this, you will see results you never thought possible!
2. Surround yourself with the right people
Environment is more important than will-power. If your friends are not action takers, they will want to pull you down to their level. You need a mix of friends: some that are at your level and are actively trying to move up, and some that are much further along than you. You also need mentors that are at the level you ultimately want to be at. What you don’t need are friends that will hold you back, intentionally or unintentionally.
Friends want you to do well but they often don’t want you to do too much better than them. Make sure you choose your friends wisely and only surround yourself with go-getters and action takers. Make sure you know people that are more successful than you that you can aspire to join, not less successful people who want to pull you down with them.
3. No one is self-made
I spoke to Arnold Schwarzenegger at an event. He said that he cringed when they described him as “self-made”. He said that no one is self-made. He said people put opportunities before him and supported him. He just walked through the door. That is humility.
The difference between a successful person and an unsuccessful person is that the successful one accepts the support and opportunities that come their way. The unsuccessful person rejects the offers of support and refuses the opportunities. They find excuses rather than solutions. They often can’t see an opportunity that is staring them in the face.
I am going to separate the wheat from the chaff right now. I am going to offer you an opportunity to be in a room with me, a multimillionaire property investor, and meet other go-getters and people with cash ready to invest. I’m going to offer you this for free. It’s called the Property Investor’s Crash Course and I want to give you a free ticket. Here is the link directly to the booking page. This is the moment to decide who you are. Do you take the opportunity or make excuses?
