Recently on Facebook I shared an image of what you need to give up if you want to be truly successful. In short, there are 8 things:
- Doubting Yourself
- Negative thinking
- Fear of Failure
- Criticizing Others
- Negative Self-Talk
- Fear of Success
- People Pleasing
This is such an important list that I thought it would be neat to do a special Cash Flow Diary podcast series on these topics. So that’s what I’m doing over the next 8 episodes. I hope it helps you move your needle forward.
Today I tackle the #1 thing you have to stop doing immediately… that’s Doubting Yourself. (It’s a soul-killer.)
It is critical for you to have a belief that you CAN do what you set out to do. Whether that is real estate investing or any other path. When you set out on any new journey, don’t let doubt stop you from trying new things.
When you get into a place of doubt, stop and ask yourself… has anyone before you ever done what you are attempting to do? The answer is yes, of course. That tells you what you’re attempting is absolutely possible. You CAN do it if you stick to it and learn the system by which other people have reached your same goals.
You think I was confident when I first started out as a real estate investor? Heck, no. But I prayed and kept going. I messed up and kept going. I learned new things and kept going. I did what I feared I couldn’t do… and I moved forward anyway. After all, I didn’t have a lot of choice. I literally could not fail.
To understand this statement, you need to know my story. Then go listen to my very first Cash Flow Dairy podcast episodes. You’ll see what I mean.
I built my confidence over time. That’s not to say I don’t have doubts some days even now, but I have learned to control my responses to those doubts. That’s what you need to do in order to dump the doubt! This episode of the Cash Flow Diary will help get you there. LISTEN NOW.
