As Emerson once said, “the ancestor to every action is a thought”. You first have an idea; then you have a thought; then you have action. It’s important to see the distinctions among them, for if you try to put them together you will lose clarity. At first it may appear that they are all happening at the same time, but this is not the case. If your awareness is high, you will see where one starts and the other takes over.[googmonify]4494413162:right:250:250[/googmonify]
An idea is worthless if no thought follows. And the thought is useless unless it’s implemented. If you like the idea of being a successful real estate investor, then spend time contemplating the outcome. Form powerful thoughts that will propel you forward to your goal.
Don’t believe the naysayer’s reasons why it won’t work Every negative thought serves to set you back and causes you to lose momentum. Trust your own thoughts and begin to take action everyday in the direction of your goal. Keep your own counsel and avoid making your goals public until you have achieved the desired outcome. In other words, don’t say anything, just show them the results.
For instance, if you’re embarking on a new business venture, keep quiet until the business starts operation. If you’ve found a bargain property, don’t say a word to anyone until you put it under contract. The fact is that most people are negative and jealous. They wouldn’t be happy to know that you’re succeeding. Most people are conformists and that’s why they don’t succeed. Nonconformity is the name of the game; you have to have the courage to do what the masses are afraid to.
