What will life be like in 10 years?

Strategic property investors think in 10-year time frames,  they don’t worry about what’s going to happen to interest rates or the economy in the next six weeks or the next six months. My Podcast 564

In my mind, 10 years is a short term and the successful investors I know ponder about what the housing markets will be like in 20 to 30 years.

We are living through times of rapid change, but most of us don’t like change. It makes us feel uncomfortable.

We like a level of certainty about our future, health, and jobs, as well as about the worlds of finance and property that most of us are interested in.

But there are history lessons that can provide us with valuable insights.

In today’s episode, I’d like to talk about some of the things that never change in a world that never stops changing.

Successful investors and businesspeople need to be prepared for change but also understand the things that don’t change.

Hopefully, by the end of today’s show, you’ll come out with some ideas about how to get some more certainty in these uncertain times.

Laying the foundation for investment success in uncertain times

In this episode, talk to you about the importance of long-term thinking and maintaining a positive mindset to succeed in property investment, debunking the myths of a constantly alarming media landscape.

Some of our favourite quotes from the show:

“Over the years, I've found that those with an optimistic outlook do much better in life, in business, and in the investments, while those with a pessimistic outlook tend to be worried and find what they're looking for.” – Michael Yardney

“I think we're going to stay with a period of higher interest rates for longer. They're going to drop eventually, but not to the levels we had during COVID and even before COVID, where they were allowed to be on the stimulatory side.” – Michael Yardney

“When things happen in life, things that we don't like, we either choose to see them as a problem or as a solution waiting to be discovered.” – Michael Yardney
