It’s so easy to say that you are not succeeding in your finances, your health or your relationships because of any number of excuses. But you know who’s not making excuses, the people who are actually succeeding. You either find a way or you find an excuse, it’s that simple.
Just like mortgages, mindsets are either fixed or variable. Fixed mindsets believe that intelligence or talent is fixed, meaning that you either have it or you don’t. Variable or growth mindsets believe that intelligence and talent can be improved with hard work.
The easy way out is always to say that you’re not good at it or you can’t do it. The best way to approach it is to pick yourself up and figure out what wasn’t working and try it a different way.
This also applies to today’s real estate market. Yes it is hyper competitive and there are not a lot of listings on the market. However homes are still coming on the market and people are still becoming successful in buying them. Just because you have failed to get a home in 5 tries does not mean that you will not succeed. Sit down and talk with your agent, see where you came up short in the past and readjust for the future.
Today I am thankful for a snowy walk with my dog this morning, so well needed mobility work before the rest of the family got up and lifting a weight that I had not lifted in a while.
“I attribute my success to this:—I never gave or took an excuse.” – Florence Nightingale
