So you want to be a property investor? Do you have what it takes? The truth is that everybody has what it takes to be a property investor. The problem is that they do not have the right mindset to become successful.
Your mind is the difference between success and failure. Everybody is made from the same stuff and it is only what they think that makes them different. If you want to join the elite band of successful property investors then you will have to condition your mind to get there.
Here are three ways to develop the right mindset for property investment:
Make It Your Burning Desire
You will never achieve greatness in anything if you do not have a strong enough desire. It is true that some people have natural talents, but without a truly burning desire it is unlikely that they would ever realize their true potential.
It is simply not enough to have a goal to be a successful property investor. You need an emotional driver that will keep you driving forward relentlessly. Do you hate your current job? Or just the fact that you have to go to a job and be told what to do all day?
This is the most important step to success. Create strong emotions here. Write down why you want to be successful and what this will mean in your life. Visualize your success and make it emotional. A little practice here and you will be unstoppable!
Create A Plan
You have probably heard the old saying “if you fail to plan you plan to fail”. Well it’s true. You need to develop a realistic plan to achieve your property investing goals. You need to make an assessment of where you are now and where you want to be in a year and beyond.
The first thing to do here is to determine your outcomes against time. So for example you may want to have acquired a second property in the next three months and four additional properties in 12 months. What is your desired net wealth from this?
Once you have done this then work out what actions you need to take to get started and start working on these right now. Even if they are small actions like making a call to an agent or viewing a potential property, do them today.
Your plan should include assessing your current net wealth and cash flow, how much time you can dedicate to your investment business and what changes you will need to make in your life to ensure that you follow your plan.
Develop daily actions for your investment business. You are bound to make mistakes along the way but don’t let these fill you with fear and negativity. Learn from them and move on and treat them as an investment in your business, making future decisions easier.
It is better to make the wrong decision than no decision at all. You will hear negativity from others such as “it is the wrong time to buy” or “this area is not a good place to buy in”. Do your due diligence and make your own decisions.
Only you can create the life that you truly desire. Investing in property is a very good way to achieve your dreams and many people have become very wealthy form this. You can too if you change your mindset and take action.
