Take Courage.
Self-discipline is necessary to deal courageously with fear induced events. Fear is natural. Everyone experiences fear. Fear can be used to guard against financial mistakes, preserve life and prevent injury.

So what’s the difference between the brave person with all this fear and the coward? The brave person is disciplined to confront, deal with and act in spite of the fear. The coward allows fear to dominate and control.

All fears are learned so therefore they can be unlearned. The most common to agents, which is a saboteur to all hope for success in Real Estate, is the failure of poverty and loss of money. The most common reaction to a fearful situation is the attitude of “I can’t”. Fear paralyzes action and shuts down the brain which causes us to have a “fight or flight” reaction. Fear undermines happiness and the ability to move forward.

Unlearning Fears.
Change behaviors with positive affirmations. Visualizing and acting as if you already have the quality you desire. The “I can’t” message is replaced with as emphatic “I can” do it. When you repeat the “I can” message with conviction, fear becomes canceled and overridden. Confidence and courage are eventually built in such a way that you are unafraid. Your visualization images will be accepted as instruction for your performance. Which leads to more success. You develop courage by disciplining yourself to do the things you fear over and over.

A simple formula guaranteed to work every time to reduce fears is the “100 call method”.

Fears decrease as you move forward and your confidence grows.
Two types of courage to instill:
1. Launch – take action- step out in faith- be all in without any guarantee 9of success with the high possibility of failure.
2. Courageous patience – the ability to hang and hang on continuing to work hard before you even see any results.

The key here is to deal with, confront and overcome fears. Resolve to deal with your fears by confronting the situation.

Mark Twain quote: “I have worried about a lot of things in life and most of them never happened.”

Final analysis:
The only real cure for fear or worry is discipline and purposeful action in the direction of your goals.

Challenge
Get so busy working on your goals you don’t have time for fear to set in.

Thought for the day:
“Persistence is what makes the impossible, possible. The possible likely and the likely definite.”

How is your self-discipline habits affecting your finances?

Key fact: 100 people start work at age 21. By age 65, 1 will be financially rich, 4 will have found financial independence, 15 will have set some cash aside, the balance of the 80 will still be working, broke, deep in debt.

Tip to money health:
Rewire the childhood candy scenario. Discipline yourself to change your self-gratification of spending money associated with happiness rather to saving and investing.

  1. Open a Financial Freedom Account.
    Make consistent long-term deposits.
  2. Practice the Law of Acceleration. Pay yourself first. Begin today to save 1% of your paycheck. Make that deposit to your Financial Freedom account and live off the other 99%. In 30 days, raise to 2% and live off the other 98%. Every month, raise your savings by 1%. By the end of the year, you will be at a 10% savings. The debt will be paid down and you will now be consciously aware of savings and not spending. You will begin to see your debt getting smaller and will have saved a substantial amount in your Financial Freedom account. When you receive an increase in pay, resolve to save 50% of the increase.
    This will cause an exponential growth in savings.
