Never Never Never Give Up! What you focus on expands. It took me and my partner 5 months to wholesale our first property. There were many times we wanted to just throw in the towel, but everytime you think about giving up say this affirmation "I will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes"

Your mindset is more important then the deal. I am reading through The University of Success by Og Mandino and I love it. Check it out!

I have read several of Og Mandino's books but not that one I will check it out.

The affirmation I have been repeating a lot lately is:

To get what you have never got, you have to do what you never did

It reminds me not to procrastinate when I come to a task I would have resisted in the past.
