Some help for Freedom4me

Sroberts10's picture

Hi Freedom4me,
It can be hard to start hard core like Dean mentioned, especially if you don't already have a love for vegies. You can reap the benefits of juicing without gagging. I suggest that you add some granny smith apples to your juicing. They will sweeten up the taste but have the lowest sugar content of all apples. Carrots are a great thing to add as well - if you have a juicer. I suggest you do a little internet search on juicing recipes. There are some really great resources out there. The green powders are hard for most people, when they start. But you will get used to it as you ease into it. If you don't have a juicer, you can buy some organic super food juice and add it to that. I like following Joe Cross http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/. He has an amazing story. And also Drew Canole http://fitlife.tv/ has some great recipes. I know you can do this!
Best, Sonya

Enthusiasm/whole life success

Dean, fantastic post!
I love that you are sharing a little more of your personal commitment to the success of your whole person. Afterall, we can't be truly successfull unless we are successful in our whole life, not just business/money.
And thank you for the very useful and usable tip of taking a moment to get your game on before you go on stage. We can all use that tip in some way, shape or form.
I know making the calls is my biggest fear so this really hits home for me. Thank you!

Enthusiastic and Motivation

I do enjoy your weekly wisdom, It does get me feeling better, Since I don't have a personal trainer calling me anymore, I have slowed down and looking for help. I am around negative people and its hard to turn them away. I also like your green drink ideas, I would like more information on this subject.

This is one that I can

RD2Invest1980's picture

This is one that I can really really relate to from personal experience. By nature I am an introverted and shy person. Showing enthusiasm when talking to others was very hard for me. I used to use that as an excuse not to move forward until I met someone that told me, "that shyness is just an excuse and you are being self-conscious." I was like what? I later found out he was right. Then this same person would also always tell me, "you have what it takes, but you must first deal with that self-consciousness and worrying about what others will think." So I took that advice and quit using that shy excuse and i LEARNED how to be more enthusiastic and how to display passion when talking with others. Thats the beauty of it, enthusiasm can be learned! It definitely is contagious! Im still not one who just bounces off of the wall 24/7, but I have learned how to display authentic enthusiasm when needed. I don't have to force it, so if I don't have to force it that lets me know it is a gift that has been there, but my excuses clouded it. I also learned just as you were saying, not to let my insecurities or bad experiences of the day to affect my enthusiasm. Not always easy but again its something anyone can learn to do!

Thanks Dean for yet another dose of your enthusiasm. I am so appreciative of your weekly wisdom entries. To add the green drink is amazing. I am starting this green drink as well.

I awaken every morning stating my positive affirmation in the mirror that I am successful R. E. Investor using Dean's 25:1 technique.

Thanks so much Dean.

Stuff happens, and really got to debunk the funk. When you don't expect all your wrongs to show up on one day, life don't seem worth living. Thanks for stirring up the inner confidence, enthusiasim, yes don't care if I got to fake it. You really do blow me away with such timely Weekly Wisdom vs the Wailing Wall.

health again

you are so right about acidity and enthusiasm. your invigorating message is such a perfect lesson. I am honored to be a part of your family. my next door neighbor is loosing his house, all paid for, for tax reasons. moved away and owes 4 years of taxes. I contacted him and then called my Coach. the owner is going to make out if he lets me help him with your education. Bless You and your team.
-ofcourse I'll assign the contract to someone on my extended buyers list, right! you are one speacial dude.

Lemons to lemonade

The house I bought in April is a nice cash flow now that small issues are fixed. But my tenants now tell me they want to buy it if I'm willing to sell. So much for buy and hold; or why not a lease/buy option? That way I keep the asset until it actually closes. It's a win-win. This is fun!

How Can I Talk To My Sister's Boyfriend?

yolaurel626's picture

My sister's boyfriend has stopped paying his mortgage and seems determined in giving up his property in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I want to help but I don't know how to talk to him about buying it without money to make a purchase. The property is located in a nice neighborhood on 36th Avenue South, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dean, what do I do?

Thanks for the nutrition tips...I've been doing the same...sparingly. I love kale!

Love It! Workin out, Eatin right, Good Livin, It's all addictin

You are so refreshing! I'd like to start a poll & be the first to vote for some of "DEAN'S DAILY DILLIGENCE"! I know you are busy enough, but that's how much your efforts are appreciated buddy Smiling

My day is coming, it has to be Dean. I'm daily working hard . . . well, perhaps I'm just taking it hard. Hmmm. Maybe I'll try your way to see if that helps me stop drowning & start sailing. God bless you and thank you so much! -Carolyn


Thanks Dean!
Loved it!
Needed it!!

3 food groups

jackk09's picture

HA, Dean I am not so dialed in on the food thing, I always say there are 3 food groups, meat, potatoes, and chocolate. Might have to adjust to some type of shake or smoothie to get some fruits and veggies, we'll see. But always a BIG THANKS to keep us motivated and to keep our minds running.

$256 Enthusiasm!

Go Dean! You are an Ace! Thank you for doing this, thanks especially for the: "you can do it" portion of your talk!
I love that you are encouraging: good health, low consumption of sugar, exercise and so on. We all know this in theory, but it is so good to hear coming from your lips, as you are: Guru for us!!
Just hearing it motivates me to get going and try it. So far I have the ingredients at home, except for the Kale, which I have never even tried! There is a first for everything. Thanks again Dean!


Glad I click this weekly wisdom in. Fantastic! Thanks Dean. Just what I needed. Everyone needs to watch this one.

Perfect Timing! :)

This weeks weekly wisdom really couldn't have come at a better time! In the past 7-10 days I've been figuratively hammered with doubt as a result of a series of conversations with other R/E investors, buyers and agents. When I came into your program I set a high benchmark for myself, and knew that there would be frustration and obstacles along the way. I just didn't expect my faith in your program, and my decision to go "all in" to be challenged so heavily so soon. Seems the market I've targeted (near where I live) is currently very poor for wholesaling on 1st time buyer properties. The inventory is very thin unfortunately, and since this method of obtaining fast cash is the most comfortable to me, you can imagine my disappointment.
In addition I'm STILL looking for a great agent as the ones I've interviewed and met with are not interested in making multiple low offers at 50-60% of ARV. In addition some people I spoke to gave a lot of resistance to the idea of running assignment contracts and using OPM. They even mentioned R/E gurus coming in, marketing and selling their ideas and then moving on. It was as if they could see right through me, and doubted my resolve and ability. A little bit of panic started to set in, and I was wondering how I'd ever be able to break into the R/E scene here. Your mention of feeling doubt because I don't have the answers really rang true. I was losing confidence with each phone call/meeting, and I wonder how many opportunities I may have squandered because I couldn't sell myself. :/
Well I let a few days go by and then remembered what you said a few weeks ago where there is always a solution to a problem. So I've decided that last week was but a challenge I can learn from, and press forward.
I knew upbeat energy was required to sell myself. I just needed a reminder to try harder at shaking off the "stink of the day!"
Thank you Dean and God Bless you!
