Many times, when I am coaching others, I notice something.
Its remarkably interesting. It fascinates me.
This may be the reason I enjoy the process of bringing a person from a newbie to a competent property investor who can then enjoy a great life unrestricted by time and money.
Sometimes, coaching can be a slow and long process.
Its more about Mindset than Techniques/Strategies. Both must be included.
Its always never about how much money a person has or owed.
Its also about fine-tuning oneself to become an opportunity-magnet. And the result is definitely a better life that means more freedom to do anything. This is liberating.
The process can be a few months, and even years.
During the process, I have the rare chance to look into a person’s mind and watch his/her behaviors.
The journey is very much like watching a person trapped in a maze (labyrinth).
Below are some of the real examples I have seen:
>> When walked into a dead-end, just U-turn and walked another route.
>> Make markings along the route so never repeat the mistake.
>> Punch thru the walls when its dead end resulting in serious damages to property and to oneself.
>> Run extremely fast at first, only to be exhausted and gave up halfway.
>> Cry and blame families, bloodline, poor school results whenever hit dead end.
>> Curse and swear at the supreme power that designed this maze.
>> Walk briskly, enjoy the process, chose to be amused instead of agitated when faced a dead end.
>> Start with slow walk and remain at consistent pace till he/she gets out.
At this moment, I can nearly come to a conclusion.
The person’s success is not because of the resources he/she has or lacks. Its mostly about the stories in the person’s head during the discovery (self-discovery too) journey.
If one reacts nicely (smile, amuse, positive), I can get them out of rat race fast and furious.
If one entertains the self-doubts, blame others, and gives up easily, the process of getting that person out of rat race will be longer.
Many people want to get out of the maze (aka rat race).
What is stopping them is often the stories they tell themselves.
Thus, the key to any breakthrough, is the story one tells oneself.
I was a boy scout in school. During the obstacle course, the senior scouts would tell us to mumble to ourselves “I can do it”.
And this is how I crossed the river with a pole. Climbed a tree…etc.
Imagine if I tell myself … “I will fall and die “…. Will I ever cross that obstacle? Probably not as I wont even start.
It’s now your turn. Can you tell me a short story?
Can you share one story on how you overcome a major roadblock in your life? It could be a job interview … it could be asking boss for pay rise …. It may even be overcoming the demise of a dear pal or a pet.
Your stories may inspire others who are going thru the same challenges now.
Many people are struggling, more so during this pandemic. Your stories may give them the much-needed wind beneath their wings.
Go ahead, type a message, inspire others. I will read and comment.
