Episode Highlights:

[15:05] Having a Purpose Behind Your Goals

Understand the purpose behind your fears. Fear is a natural defense mechanism that humans have had since caveman times. While we no longer have to worry about being eaten by dinosaurs, we still face fears such as financial ruin or failure. These fears can drive us, but it’s important to unpack them and question whether they are accurate or just stories we tell ourselves. It’s common to fall into the trap of fearing the worst, even if we’ve had success in the past. By challenging yourself and pushing beyond your comfort zone, you can expand and grow your mindset. For example, if you’re analyzing numbers for a deal, stress test the situation and plan for potential issues. By doing this, you’ll realize that most of your fears are unfounded, and you’ll be better prepared to handle any challenges that come your way.

[30:09] At the Heart of Zen Coast University

Zen Coast University was created with the ethos of building a community of individuals who are authentic and genuinely good human beings. While the primary focus is on learning real estate, being around like-minded people who share similar values is equally important. The university takes great care in screening potential members to ensure that they align with the cultural values of the existing students. They believe in the law of attraction and that positive energy attracts positive outcomes. 

[30:46] Getting Out of the Scarcity Mindset

Instead of solely focusing on personal gain, consider a different approach to achieving success. Ask yourself, “How can I help 10 people make a million bucks?” By shifting your focus to helping others achieve their goals, you create a positive energy that will ultimately benefit everyone involved. The universe has a way of reciprocating positivity, and by helping others, you can create a cycle of mutual success. Remember that there is enough potential success for everyone, and keeping knowledge to oneself is a scarcity mindset. By adopting a mentality of sharing and helping others, you do not lose out on personal gain. If you find yourself thinking otherwise, take a moment to reflect on why you believe that and consider changing your perspective. Helping others is not only beneficial to them but also creates a culture of support and growth that will ultimately benefit everyone.
