Today I’d like to share with you one of the biggest “Ah-Ha’s” I ever experienced.
You see…I’ve been running my Mentorship Program for over 14 years now.
I believe it’s Australia’s longest running program of its type.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with some very, very successful property investors and I’ve had the joy of seeing some beginning investors grow, mature and flourish.
The thing all these successful investors have in common is that they understand the importance of personal development and, more importantly, they are prepared to change.
You see, what you become is far more important than what you get.
The important question to ask on the job is not, “What am I getting?”
Instead, you should ask, “What am I becoming?”
What you become directly influences what you get
Think of it this way: Most of what you have today, you have attracted to you by becoming the person you are today.
I’ve also found that income rarely exceeds personal development.
Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle.
If someone hands you a million dollars, you’d better hurry up and become a millionaire.
A very rich man once taught me, “If you took all the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, it would soon be back in the same pockets it was before.”
It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.
So here’s the great axiom of life:
To have more than you’ve got, become more than you are.
This is where you should focus most of your attention.
Otherwise, you just might have to contend with the axiom of not changing, which is:
Unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you’ve got.
The results I’ve achieved have been very gratifying for me, but life changing for many mentorees.
Some beginners have significantly sped up their journey by having someone hold their hand and show them where the landmines are.
Other more successful business people, investors and entrepreneurs have taken their “game” to the next level.
