Some new students of the Dalbey Education Institute have told me that even though the cash flow business IS simple – it’s just finding private notes, putting the information out to buyers, and arranging the transaction to collect a referral fee – they have trouble getting started.
These people aren’t hung up on an issue like a lack of time (remember, it only takes a couple hours a week to get going with Winning), or funds (you don’t have to invest ANY of your own money on real estate), or information.
After all, our Success Counselors are available to provide live help to students five days a week, from 7 AM to 6 PM MST, toll-free... and via email too.
Their problem is usually that they get stuck imagining all the “what if” scenarios that they MIGHT have to deal with. Or, the end goal – getting that check in the mail – seems far away to them... even though they know exactly how to get there. And because they’re focused on that seemingly distant goal, they can’t get started.
Here’s the solution. It’s very easy!
Just focus your mind on your goals and specifically the end result – exactly what you want to happen and how that feels. Next, just focus on taking one small step at a time towards your goal. You don’t have to worry about all the “what if's”...
I call it “cinch by the inch.” Just take it one inch at a
time... every day, set a goal to make some movement forward... and before you know
it, you’ll have traveled a mile. You might even go much further than you
imagined possible! And it becomes a cinch to accomplish any task... any goal and
it’s the easiest way to get anything done.
So, your very first goal could be to talk to at least three people today about your note business (just say, “I help people get cash now for future payments… are you receiving any payments?”). Or, you could establish an initial goal of printing simple business cards for yourself (there are many low-cost options online; just type “free business cards” into your favorite search engine).
Even better: take action with just one method I describe in Winning in the Cash Flow Business to start finding notes – like visiting a courthouse to get leads on deals.
So, if you’re having a little trouble getting going, don’t worry: just “cinch by the inch” to start reeling yourself towards what you want. Take a little action every day (or as often and regularly as you can) and soon you’ll have reached your destination!
