How To Stop Procrastinating And Start Making Money

Is there something that you know you should do, that you know will move your biz forward… but no matter how hard you try, you just can’t bring yourself to do it?

Maybe it’s…

  • Calling your first seller
  • Making an offer
  • Meeting with a private money prospect

Whatever it is… it’s time to stop procrastinating and start making money!

The “Negative Motivation” Technique

I got an email from one of my Platinum student partners, Heather, a couple days ago who FINALLY was able to stop procrastinating on setting up her first private money appointment. It was the one thing that she knew she needed to do, she knew it was the next step in building her business… but it frightened the heck out of her.

Enter the “negative motivation” technique… which I first learned from Unstoppable Confidence, by Kent Sayre (awesome book btw!).

Here’s how Heather used this technique to break through her fear and get her first appointment…

She attached a “negative motivation” of a monetary fine ($30 bucks paid to her son at the end of every day that she didn’t hit her private money appointment goal)… and that was enough to push her over the edge and set up 4 presentations the first day she implemented this.


So, how do you put this to work for you?

  1. what have you been procrastinating on more than anything else?
  2. determine what “negative motivation” you’ll use to force youself into action (doesn’t have to be monetary… could be not being able to watch a big game coming up with your favorite sports team or whatever would motivate you to get off your butt and into action)
  3. get someone to hold you accountable

There ya go… that’s a simple technique that you can implement today… so STOP procrastinating and start making money.

How to Get What You REALLY Want in Your Life & Biz

In the first module of our full Private Money Blueprint System, we help you build a rock solid foundation in your REI biz first… so that you’re ready to take the market by storm.

Without this “foundation”,  all the private money and real estate investing techniques and strategies in the world won’t help you.

Part of this process includes planning exactly what you want in the 8 core areas of your life, taking what we call, The REI Litmus Test (which tells you which investment strategies are best for you based on what you want in each core area), creating your biz plan, among other things.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn what those 8 core areas are, why it’s vitally important to know what you want in these areas, and I’m going to share tips to put your new goals on steroids (so you achieve them faster and easier)…

8 Core Areas in Life – How to Get What You REALLY Want

When you know where you’re headed (in other words, when you know exactly what you want), you can start taking educated action towards it.

Why You MUST Decide (and Plan) What You Want in Life & Biz

Think about it…

You want to go on a vacation. What’s the first thing you need to do?

Decide where you want to go.

ONLY then, can you move forward with the steps necessary to make that vacation happen.

Once you know where you’re going, you can plan your travel, your accommodations, what you’re gonna do once you get there, take the needed time off from your job, etc.

Make sense?

Well, it’s the same way with anything, and I mean ANYTHING you want in life.

If you don’t plan what you want in every core area of your life, you’ll never get it.

Action Step: Set aside 1 hour right now… write down (this is key… you absolutely MUST write down them down) 3 goals in each core area. It’s best to have both short term and long term goals.

How to Put Your Goals on Steroids

Here are a few tips that will put you on the fast track to getting what you want in your life and in your REI biz…

1) Stated in the Positive

Your goals should be what you want, NOT what you don’t want.

2) Personal

You have to want it. Not what your parents want for you or your spouse or friends. For the goal to be effective, it must be something that you want.

3) Specific (Result & Time Frame)

This is critical. the result must be quantifiable, and a time frame established. Otherwise, it’s simply a wish, a hope.

Here’s an example of a goal that meets each of the three characteristics thus far (assuming you want private money for your deals):

It is X-Date, and I closed my first deal with a $125,000 private money loan.

4) Experience it in Your Mind

If you can’t see it in your mind, you won’t see it in reality. That’s how the world works.

How do you think the property you live in was built?

… it was first an idea in someone’s mind.

Ask yourself, “What do I see, hear, and feel having accomplished my goals?

What do you look like? How do you feel? What are you saying to yourself? What are others saying to you?

The more you experience your goals as achieved in your mind, the faster you’ll achieve them in your life.

I have a special tutorial for you today… and it’s not directly related to real estate investing or private money but is directly related to your success in business and in life.

Have you heard of Jim Rohn before?

If not, I’m pleased to introduce a man who has made a profound impact on my life (both personally and professionally), a man referred to as America’s Foremost Business Philosopher – Mr. Jim Rohn.

Unfortunately I never met him in person. I always wanted to go to one of his seminars but waited too long as Mr. Rohn passed away December 5th, 2009.

But, his legacy lives on through his books, videos, CDs, and all of his educational training programs.

Below is a video that I found on YouTube where he covers some incredible insights he learned from his mentor, Earl Shoaff.

The video is 7 min long… make sure to listen close from the 3 min mark through the end.

Enjoy these simple yet powerful lessons…

NOTE: original video was taken down from YouTube due to copyright issues… so I found another to take it’s place… well actual 3 others 🙂

This is a series called “How to Have Your Best Year Ever”… great stuff too!

Are You Taking S.M.A.R.T. Action as a Private Money Getter?

As many of you know, I’m big on teaching students to … Take Massive Action!

I’ve seen all too many beginners get stopped in their tracks due to information overload, due to fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of what others may say.

The result of these common obstacles is often inaction. And that’s a BIG problem. Idleness is a sure fire way to frustration, anger, and ultimately failure.

I came up with a metaphor to help you destroy the tendency towards inaction with S.MA.R.T. Action.

Check out the video below to learn more …

Now, be honest with yourself …

Have you been taking S.M.A.R.T. Action?

If not, no big deal because you can commit today, you can commit right now to change that; to no longer be one who procrastinates, to be a doer, to take S.M.A.R.T. Action.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or tips, toss ’em in the comment area.

Catch you later,

– Patrick & Trevor
