How To Break Through Your Fears of Property Investing

All right, today I'll speak to you about fear, and why fear holds people back, and why fear stops people from taking a step, and going and doing the things you like. Have a look at this diagram, you're here now, here you are today. For instance, you may want a better relationship. You might want to have a better house. You may want to have more money. You may want to quit a job, go and start your own business and get a bit more freedom in your life. You may want to be thinking about, "Shit, how can I invest in property?" Or, "How can I do better financially?" Here's what happens. You start to get fearful thoughts. We start to doubt ourselves, am I good enough? I'm not sure if this will work, gee, will I lose money? Or is this the right thing for me to do? Or I've got a safe and secure job, or maybe I should just stay here, right? And we get all this emotional stuff. All this emotional energy builds up, and it creates pain and emotion in here. And then the fear of making mistakes, the fear of not doing it right, the fear of losing money, it all starts out and you know what, you don't break through the barrier. You don't take that step in going to the other side folks. It's no different to when I started my business 10 years ago, I was working in a job and I had a cruisy job. I was... I had a company car, phone, laptop, computer, cruising around Victoria Drive and ran doing my own thing, sort of thing and could have stayed there the rest of my life but I wanted to teach, I wanted to coach, I wanted to share personal development. I wanted to teach people about money, property, property investing but I was scared to take the step folks. I stood here and I thought, "Gee, I don't know much about business, what if nobody likes it? What if I don't make any money? Or what if I lose money?" And all this stuff, but here's what happens. It got to the point folks, where after three years I sat on this. For three years I sat there, I thought I want to teach, I want to coach, that's what I want to do. I got to this point over here where the pain become that... that you know what I've got to sort this out, I have to take a step. I have to go and move, I have to go and do something, right? So here's what happened. I sat and thought about, and I thought, you know, what? If I quit my job right now, today walked in, I'm leaving, see yeah, gave notice. What's the worst thing that could happen to me between here and a better future? Because your better future is on the other side of pain. Your better future is on the other side of fear. Your better future is on the other side of emotion that's holding you back, that's where your better future is. It's not here, this is where you're stuck. So here's what I thought, "Gee, you know what? If I went and did this and it didn't work, or I lost money, or I didn't make money, guess what? I could always go back and get myself another job. I could always go back and remake the money. I could always go back and rebuild it. I could learn lessons along the way." But here was the trigger folks, this is what I thought. I never got any... I never had any knowledge or training around how to build a business, how to run a business. I was going from the heart going, "You know what? I just want to go out and teach, coach and educate because I know can help a lot of people," right? So I took the step, I quit the job. And all I did is I created some steps that says, hey, if I go from here to here, to here to here all of a sudden on there, let me share this with you though. 10 years later, folks, I love what I do. I don't have a job, this is enjoyment to me. This is fun, I get to play golf. I get to do health and fitness, I get time for my training. I don't get stuck in peak hour traffic. I don't get told what to do by some B.S. boss, or some crappy-arse manager who's having a bad day. I'm not getting controlled by anything except me, my life, my choices, my environment. So the reward, the better life was on the other side of pain folks. There I was stuck in pain, or stuck in emotional pain. And I took the step and got out. Now the joy, and the fun, and the satisfaction I get of how I live, what do I do, how I teach, all this sort of thing. This is gold now folks, this is gold. So if you're there and you want a better life, whether it's personally, you want to be a better person, learn to be a better person, you want better relationships. You want better dynamics with your family and your kids. You want a nicer house, or if you want to.. an investment property, or you want more wealth, or you want to start a business, or you want to go and do something that you're passionate about. Here's how you do it, you start today, and you start to find somebody who's got the knowledge, or the skills, or the expertise who can actually teach you and show you the ropes i.e. like a mentor, like a coach. I've paid people, and I still pay people today to teach me how to go from here, to here, to teach me how to go from here, now, to where I want my better future. You have to invest in your brain. You have to invest in your knowledge. You have to invest in your education. The fastest way to do it is find people who know how to take you from A to B. Here's an example, I've got a boat sitting here, and excuse my drawing because I wasn't much good at drawing at school. If a boat sits at port in the harbor, and the captain of the ship sits there and says, "Listen, we've got to go from Australia, and we've got to get over to England. But you know what? I've just seen the weather forecast and it looks a bit rough, but you know there's got to be some pretty high... we might be in some big high choppy seas. Then they say that in four days time there's actually a storm that's going to happen out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, or there's a sight line too below on... Way out at the top of somewhere." If he sat there and just went through that and goes, "You know what, I think I'll just wait till it's a bit calmer, I think I'll wait until I feel a bit safer. I think we'll wait until..." He would never, ever, ever leave port folks. He would never get that ship, and that cargo, and those goods from Australia over to where he needs to get them folks. You're like the captain of the ship. If you're sitting there and you're in fear, you want to do something, you want to bet a lot, you want to have more in your life. And you're scared, and you're fearful. And you're worrying about what might happen. Two things you can do, one, think about what's the worst thing that could happen to you. And two, have a think about your better life. What if I did do this and it was a success? What if I did take a step and it worked out fine? What if I did this and I've got a better life? That's the thing that you need to focus on folks, because leaving in fear, and living in pain, and living in emotional pain over here, It'll wear you down, it'll drag you down. It'll affect your life, it affects your health, it affects your family, it affects your relationships. You won't be happy at work, you'll be stuck in a bullshit, crap job for the rest of your life. Folks, if I gave you a $1M and I said here's a million today. Tomorrow morning, what would you do with your life? How would you live, what would you do? Because that's probably the answer that tells you about your passion, and might give you a bit of a drive and a bit of influence. Now, did I take a risk up here when I quit that job? You bet I did, but I got through it folks. It didn't hurt me, it's not going to hurt me. I'm investing money in my business right now, this is in the middle of the coronavirus situation, I'm doing the exact opposite to just about everybody else. I'm pumping money into a certain sector of my business and people go "It's a bit risky," but I had to take the step folks because if I want my business to grow, if I want my life to grow, I've got to get to a better future, okay? So I've hired a company to take me in showing me the journey to get me from A to B folks. I'm doing exactly what I'm teaching you here. I hope this lesson's helped you out. Your life is your life, you only get one crack at it folks. So if you want a better life, if you want to know how to build wealth, you want to know how to invest in property. Find people who can teach, find people who can give you the knowledge and take you on that path, and on that journey, folks. Listen, do something for me here at the end of this lesson. Go and write down what you're really passionate about. What do you love to do, what juices you? You say, "You know what, if I get out of bed every single morning, I'd love to do X, Y, Z." Go and do that tomorrow, make that your first step and folks don't live a mediocre life. Live the life that you want to live. And don't worry about what anybody else says, or what anybody else thinks, you follow your heart. You follow your instinct, you follow your gut feel, and you can go on and live the masterpiece of a life that you want to really live. Go out and experience it folks. Enjoy it and teach this to your kids.
