Pioneering Doesnt Pay…

Copying someone else…

As we wrap up 2016…I am quite busy doing paper work, looking over the books..accounting for what I did and have been plotting for 2017 for over 4 months now….and I am currently debating…if I want to renew my subscription for World of Warcraft…(to be continued..)

I want to share with you some things I learned in 2016 that helped me become a success! I will be speaking mostly about real estate related scenarios, since that is pretty much where the bulk of my success came from. To be quite honest with you…I speak with folks on a daily…and I have no idea WTF they are trying to be in business.

People make things so complicated its not even funny…so I wont go over that..but I WILL tell you the EASIEST way to find success…is to copy cat someone who has done what you want to do with PROVEN results…ask them what they did and copy them…

I personally do not want to be the pioneer of the new frontier and bet on an idea…which I don’t know if it will be a hit or not…why would you bet on something that is not a proven concept…? Life was meant to be enjoyed not be a pain…

And really all I did to find success in real estate was read a book and become patient with the process..its funny, because when I tell people I read a book and it only cost $15…people look at me like I am stupid…or uneducated…like theres more to the process…when there really isn’t….

Leverage

This is another key concept I learned to be helpful this year…another funny thing is…people think I am so smart and I know everything there is to know about everything…the honest answer is…I have only been investing for about 1.5 years…coming up on 2 this coming March…

If you want success…you MUST leverage a team…there have been many times when I did not know the answer but someone else on my team knew it…and guess what…? We got through the problem and moved onto the next task…

Leveraging not only saves time, but it actually makes you more money. There were many times when my business was running on virtual auto pilot and I would be sitting at home playing World of Warcraft on the couch…

I realistically only spent about 20 hours out of the whole week being in the field touring properties…and guess what…? The more results I got due to leverage…the lazier I got…not in a bad sense…but why would you want to try and take on the whole world by yourself…?

This past year…I was on vacation in California and had a conference call with a very successful friend of mine….and it is with his quote…I conclude this article…

“You know Prince…in life if you want to have massive success, you will unfortunately have to do it by leveraging other people’s: hard work, time and money”
