People often claim that a lack of access to money is what keeps them from looking for deals. Why is mindset, not the money, the real thing holding us back? What is the most valuable skill that we can leverage in order to get money? Why do we need to prioritize action and stop being afraid of making mistakes? On this episode, I’m joined by real estate investor and entrepreneur, Ben Muresan who shares on his journey, the obstacles he faced, and how he overcame them.
Fail quickly, fail forward. The
quicker you fail, the quicker you find the answers to what does and
doesn’t work. -Ben Muresan
Three Things We Learned
How necessity breeds a strategic mind
Not having the resources at your fingertips forces you to think about alternatives, new ideas and strategies. That level of forceful thinking helps you cultivate a mindset of possibility.
Why limiting beliefs are the biggest obstacle to success
It’s always the limiting belief that we have in our minds that holds us back beyond anything. On the surface the things that stop us are external like money, time, and resources, but the greatest thing is the limiting internal belief system, and our negative self-talk.
How Ben took advantage of the market downturn
There is more opportunity created in a fearful environment like a market downturn. When people are paralyzed, that’s when we should be taking action, when they are fearful that’s when we should be bold.
We often hold ourselves back by waiting to get the right information and answers before we take action. Sometimes we have to get into action first and then get the answers along the way. The true secret ingredient to our success is wisdom. The more of it we have, the more action we can take, furthering our growth.
