Today’s show brings you a “real” show, a show that takes a look at the real estate investing business the way it really is. Joe’s talking to you today about being uncomfortable, being in a place where you don’t know everything that’s going to happen, and learning how to be OK with that fact.
That goes against the grain, doesn’t it? Many people want to be successful so that they don’t have to be uncomfortable, so that everything smooths out and runs well. But that’s counter to building a profitable, thriving business.
Why? Because pushing yourself into uncomfortable places is what motivates you to grow, to flourish, and to succeed. You won’t hustle enough or work hard enough if you’re not uncomfortable. You won’t move to the next level, whatever that is for you, if you aren’t uncomfortable. The temptation is to sit back, rest on your past successes, and let the world pass you by. But you can’t do that if you want to succeed on a greater level. You have to push yourself to be uncomfortable.
But Joe’s not saying that you move into a realm of discomfort for the sake of being uncomfortable. It’s about the pressure to move forward. It’s about the motivation that rises up when you get in that uncomfortable place. THAT is what you want, no matter what level of business you’re doing. You want the discomfort to drive you forward.
