What does your success look like? Have you got all the right knowledge to succeed but you’re still not seeing results? Do you believe that the way you think affects your life? In the future, do you want to be good, better, or best?
In today’s episode of Passion for Real Estate Investments, multi-talented entrepreneur, Patrick Precourt, digs deep and tells us how our own thoughts can be the difference between failure and success. From being a competitive Rugby player, to investing in his first property at the age of 25, to being an industry-leading mentor and speaker, Patrick has seen success by simply changing the way he thinks and makes decisions.
Patrick’s experience with real estate started in his early 20’s, working for his family’s home inspection company, while also living out his passion for competitive sports locally and abroad. At the age of 25, he invested in his first property, and by the late 90’s he was well on his way to become a professional investor. His passion for real estate investment and success stems from his outcome-oriented decision-making skills. This passion is what drove him to start mentoring others with the goal of building a bridge between those who do succeed and those who don’t.
He didn’t stop there.
In 2000, he opened North Shore Enterprises, a professional real estate investment company that specializes in pre-foreclosure and short sales. In 2008, he co-authored “Wake Up and Live The Life You Love: The Power of Team”, and his coaching skills helped grow a company to generate over $75M in annual sales. He also runs a successful personal development program that currently has over 800 elite students. While Patrick attained success coaching mental skills, in 2012 he opened The Cage in Rocky Hill, CT, a lifestyle fitness center.
What questions should we be asking ourselves? Do circumstances determine our outcomes? Patrick tells us why as many as 90% of people who have the right knowledge still fail to manifest it, and how we can actively change that. How do you go from unconscious incompetence to conscious incompetence, and why is it important?
If you want to learn how to change your thoughts, find the shortest path to your goal, or go from knowing how to do something to being competent at it, this episode is exactly what you need.
