“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
That’s a quote straight from Lance Armstrong, the ultimate American road racing cyclist..
I make it a habit to study extremely prosperous individuals and you should too.
As many recall, Lance came out of retirement on his mission for an 8th Tour de France win but was hit by extreme bad luck. He suffered unfortunate flat tires and terrible crashes on successive days. His hopes and visions of tour success vanished…just like that. BAM! All that time and money spent preparing was for nothing.
You’ve probably been in a similarly defeated state. You’ve been chewed up and spit out by life and cannot seem to get ahead no matter how hard you try. Day in and day out…nothing changes. Does this sound familiar?
In the game and life of real estate investing, a lot of people are going through the same defeated state. You have two choices…give up or keep trudging along. Please make the decision to not give up. You may be two feet from gold!!
Lance had no chance of winning that one race, but he did not give up. He finished the race to the end and continued to work towards his next win. This needs to be your outlook too. A day is imminent soon, if you don’t give up, you too will make your very own comeback. Yes, times are tough right now, but this is not the end to your real estate journey…No Way!
I’m begging you to not give up YOUR race. You will succeed if you don’t give up. I want you to take a break each day and meditate on 6 things that will give you a lift in upholding your race:
#1 – In your retaliation, reject rejection.
#2 – In your retaliation, see failure as fleeting.
#3 – In your retaliation, see your failure as a secluded occurrence.
#4 – In your retaliation, see your impending success as a course.
#5 – In your retaliation, be prepared to try a new tactic.
#6 – In your retaliation, know that ALL prosperous people have had to bounce back at some point. You must also.
Lastly, I want to reassure you with a true declaration of life…your setback is just a setup for your comeback.
