I was digging around in some of my old stuff the other day and came upon a set of notes that I had made while taking a real estate investing course. (One of many, I hasten to add.) We had group coaching calls during the course just like I do for my students now.
These notes showed me that the course was great; the coach was great, but I was filled with fear—which manifested in excuses.
I do some reminiscing in this episode. I had forked over a lot of money for this course, but when I failed to close any deals by the time I completed it, I felt like a real loser. But looking at those notes, I saw that the tasks the coach assigned were simple ones. It was me. I failed to take action.
I guess that’s why I keep on encouraging each one of you. Just do it! No more “what if?” No more “yeah, but.”
Take imperfect action each day. Then refuse to quit.
