Episode #167 Losers Are Wealthy With Excuses



No excuses. Few people are attracted to whiners, complainers, excuse-makers, or wimps. Hanging out with victim’s is not appealing to most reasonable people. Know this: “An abundance of excuses guarantees a lack of money”. Too often I hear most people speak lack, poverty, inadequacy, doubt, fear, and the worst of them all … skepticism! So many new (and some not so new) investors wonder way too much about the money, you need to be careful about the vocabulary you use because every word or thought, spoken, or written, if inner-directed, constitutes programming for your surroundings, and instructs the world around you what you are willing to accept and have, They then rationalize how come things are the way they are. Often subconscious, and don’t even know it. In this podcast, we plan to challenge you from this point forward to move away from the “self-destruct” stage and lean to flourish and prosper with infinite real estate profits that are right at your finger tips!
