HOW FULFILLED ARE YOU?

Well, you know, the most successful real estate investors that I know are the ones that have moved on to something that’s more fulfilling. I’ve seen guys doing a thousand deals, like literally a thousand deals a year. And I can tell that they’re probably pretty unhappy. And then I’ve seen, you know, the other side of it. So, you know, as I said, we have similar stories and the fact that we don’t love real estate that much anymore, you know, I still like seeing the deals come across. I still like growing the team. I still like having the culture that we have in our business. but to me, it’s more than that. Like you said the real measure of success is like how fulfilled you feel at the end of the day. I used to chase so many different rabbits down a hole and I would do it because I wanted more.

THE 3D FREEDOM METHOD

That’s interesting because I call it the 3d method. I try and do this every single day. What can I delegate to someone else? What can I delete that I don’t need to be doing? And what can I defer until later? Like, there’s things that you just have to do. It may not even be important to your mission, your vision, your business right now, and defer until later. So you can do the things that are most important to you and your business right away.

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GOOD PEOPLE

I think the people’s piece is huge because obviously we can’t do anything without other people.
So that’s the other people in your businesses, employees, that’s contractors, that’s people you hang out with on a daily basis. They say you’re the average of the five people you hang out with the most. And so if you want to make more money, you know, hang out with people that are making more money. If you want a more positive mindset or better energy, you hang around positive people. I just swear I have a negativity meter, like these days, like I am very sensitive to negativity. Like if someone says something negative, like I’m seriously just want to walk in the other room. So yeah, there’s some really good points and, you know, surrounding yourself with good people. That’s why you have the masterminds, right? Because you want to make sure that people that you bring into a group they’re going to be good for each other and help each other. That’s what’s great about the Masterminds.

BRAINSTORMING HELPS

I always say that one conversation, one relationship, one tip, one tool away from completely changing something that you’re doing or your whole business potentially. And that’s what I love being around other people and, you know, for the first 10 years of my business, I literally almost never asked for help. Like I thought if you asked for help, you were weak and you didn’t know what the hell you were doing. And so I kind of just put my head down and just like, didn’t ask for help. And in social media, it’s a lot easier these days you can post something on Facebook and probably get an answer. But when you’re in an intimate room and you can say, Hey guys, I’m struggling with cash flow or I’m struggling with an employee and you have like 5, 10, 15 people like hammering down on that with you and just saying, here’s what I’ve done. Here’s what I think I mean: it’s crazy the amount of good feedback you can get from dozens, if not hundreds of years of experience from those people in the room.

GRATITUDE ON SIMPLE THINGS

And one thing that I’ll kind of touch on some of the things you said, like one of the things I look at now like I used to sweat all of the small stuff. I mean, all of them, like of a contract didn’t show up, I was like sweating bullets, like just stupid little stuff like that. But when you sit back and look at it, like we could have been born in a country that doesn’t have running water. Bill Gates has a documentary. I’m not a huge fan of Bill Gates anymore. He did well in this when they told the story. He went into parts of Africa, they had toilets outside, they would go in the toilet, it would run into the river and they would bathe in that same water in that river, like there are countries in places like that and drink out of it. So when you take it from that perspective, I think least half the world is in some kind of poverty like that. But my morning routine is gratitude. I try to say nine things I’m grateful for and just the simple things men are just when you sit back and look at those, it’s like, okay, whatever happens, today is really not that bad.
