Hey, gang, this is Mike with My Real Estate DOJO and today’s lesson is about being persistent and why persistence is the key to your success. Now you guys know I am a refugee to America, when we came here my family and I we didn’t speak the language, we didn't know left from right, we had no connections, no credit, didn’t have any money.
Now the key for success I highly believe is persistence, because like the gym, like working out on a boxing bag, just like going and doing body building, it doesn't matter if you’re big and small, if you’re fat or skinny- all that matters is going to the gym everyday and being persistent. Day in day out, week in week out, month after month, year after year.
Since I’ve been in high school, I have been working out. What I noticed that there are a lot of people that come to the gym and will work out really hard for maybe a couple of weeks, they go 6 days a week two hours a day and then they will fall of the map. Sure they’ve got some results, buts not what they wanted. Other guys come in here or ladies, they are obese or maybe overweight and they are just persistent.
They didn’t know what to do, what to eat, they have no instructions, they have no personal trainer, but they are persistent, they have the will and they show up every fucking day week in week out, month after month. What happens is that person who showed up can only give this much, but with persistence was able to have more success than the person, who cam in and did this much, but only did it for this amount of time. End of story, it doesn’t matter what your lacks and disabilities are.
It doesn’t matter if you have credit, if you have money, if you have support, if you have people that believe in you. You live in America – the greatest country ever and just like the gym, just like your body, you are going to be able to build muscle, reach your financial goals as long as you are persistent. It doesn't matter if you don’t know what to do, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to talk to a motivated seller, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to negotiate, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know sales or negotiation. None of that shit matters, all that matter is that you are willing to be persistent and go in day in day out.
Let me give you a good example why persistence is so important when it comes to real estate investing and entrepreneurship. I know a lot of students still go ahead and do calling one day calling 25 people, next day they may skip it, next day they might do 30 people, next day they might skip it, next day they maybe will do a 100. They don’t have that much success and the reason is because they are not persistent.
I teach my students that its better for you to do 25 calls a day five days a week, six months in a row than do that variation when you do some days and you don’t some days. Some days you do more, some days you do less.
That stuff is not going to work. Just like the gym. You are not going to get results unless you are fucking persistent. End of the story is, if you are a real estate investor, if you are a entrepreneur and you don’t know what to do- don't worry about it. You live in the best country in the world-America. Have the belief system that you are going to make it. Be fucking persistent, because when you show up day after day, day in day out, the universe is going to gradually take you where are willing to go.
This is Mike with My Real Estate DOJO. Don’t take ‘no’ for an answer and make sure you go to the gym, because you need persistence in the gym to build your character, so you are persistent in your financial goals.
