I wanted to take a moment and explore something I learned from the thread named above. Tony said some very important things (to me personally).
The feeling of scarcity becomes overbearing to me because I am so much a believer in abundance and opportunity during all economic conditions.
I personally know this feeling…I was not able to express it because I HAD NEVER FELT THIS BEFORE!! I had nothing to compare it to except maybe setting an alarm, getting up early, shower, shave, dress (Billabong, of course lol), fix breakfast, pack a lunch and watch reruns of Law and Order for 12 hours. I see opportunities everywhere…2006 triples on the lake selling for 340K UNDER current appraisal!!! I see friends 3, 6 9 months behind on payments with no way out! I see a near empty sales lot with toters, set up trucks, crews all idle. Like Tony I am an eternal optimist. I went from 616 reportable to 19K reportable in 39 months. Shellshocked is another pretty good description. It is a totally alien landscape out there…surreal is another appropriate adjective.
I am tired of worrying so much about keeping what I have. Our niche previously focused on doing more business in an abundant environment. It did not sit still worrying. I am confident that these changing times will see great minds here and elsewhere in this niche define themselves with new ideas and adaptation of old to overcome these challenges.
Amen my Brother. Until I find a way to connect the dots personally, I refuse togive ANY advice in this environment. I believe some great people from this community are the same. Lonnie, Steve Case are prime examples. These are people I know and respect and are two of three people on the entire planet I would give an unlimited POA to without a second thought.
I have received several dozen emails from people who have failed and failed badly. I am asking now to any who emailed me to re-email and allow me to post these missives anonymously for us all to learn from.
I truly believe that there is the brain power on this site to make win/win deals even now…I need your help people…I’m all in, are you?
If this post is inappropriate for this forum or offends anyone email me and I will delete it without question. These are srictly my thoughts and not of anyone else associated with MHU.
Thank you Tony for your honesty…
