Sometimes I make short 60-second video messages. These messages condense important topics into simple bite size chunks. In this video, I spoke about self-sabotage and how to avoid it. This is what I said…
Most people will tell you that seeing is believing. Let me tell you something, you have to believe it first and then you'll see it!
What people tell you isn't necessarily true. They'll tell you don't talk to strangers, but then wonder why they're not making new business and not making new business partnerships, because you have to talk to strangers.
They'll say if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is and then wonder why nothing good happens to them, because if anything good comes along they sabotage it.
They say money doesn't grow on trees, and then go around their whole life thinking that you can't make money with nothing. Technically, paper money that we see actually does literally grow on trees!
You know they say you can't have your cake and eat it too; what's the point of having a cake if you're not going to eat it? It's crazy, it's stupid.
So they say watch the pennies and the pounds look after themselves, but then they spend so much time looking after the pennies they miss the million!
Don't listen to what everybody says; do what your intuition tells you and go be great!
So that was my message. In this article, I am going to go into a little more depth and explain the concepts in more detail. There are many things that we are told that are either designed to, or unintentionally do, hold us back in life. Thinking like an average person means you will get average results. There is nothing wrong with doing that necessarily, but if you want to make a huge impact on the world and on your life, you have to think differently.
One example is the phrase, ‘if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’. People always forget one word from that statement – ‘probably’. It is those times when it isn’t actually too good to be true that people make their fortunes. If you tune out all the opportunities that come your way, you will avoid the pitfalls but you will also miss out on the life changing moments as well.
If you could go back and buy Apple shares back when it was starting out; or buy Bitcoin at $1; go back to when you could purchase property and refinance the same day, wouldn’t you do so right now? But right now, you can buy HMOs before Article 4 comes into an area and secure grandfather rights; you can do a rent to serviced accommodation deal and earn £1000 a month from a property you don’t even own; or you can do BRRR deals where your return is literally infinite.
In 10 years’ time, you will wish you had the opportunities you have now. You will say, ‘those were the days’. So take advantage of the opportunities that are right in front of you. Because although they might seem too good to be true, they are definitely not!
