Tycoonism “One must be a wise reader to quote wisely and well.”

September 9, 2009

I have always been a reader.  Reading keep my mind healthy and robust.  Aside from my daily regimen and healthy diet,  I maintain a healthy schedule and routine that enables me to face my day full force, with a purpose and with a fresh outlook.

I cannot over emphasize the importance of reading. For a long time, many of my students and audience guests have asked me to share my readings. One student thought of it as “following my mind.” Education is preparation, plain and simple. Opportunity is where education and faith meet face-to-face. As much of a challenge as finding a role model can be, that is the EASY part—as easy as buying this book. But that’s just the beginning. Once you find the System that speaks to you, that has proven itself, you have to stick with it. Don’t make the mistake that so many others have made by jumping from one system to the next. Investing tons of money in different wealth building methods without ever following through on one will produce two things; an impressive library of wealth building strategies and an impressive net profit for those selling those strategies.

The kind of real world education I’m talking about requires reverence and faith. You have to have reverence for those who have successfully gone before you and accomplished what you want to accomplish. When spending time with your Mentor or Teacher, invade their mind because they just may have that needed ingredient you are missing. Think of it as a modern day apprenticeship. Learning a Master’s skill takes time and dedication. To appreciate what those innovators have achieved, it’s important to know that they were once where you are right now. Every Guide (Mentor, Teacher, Guru) was once a lost student. Real estate pioneers of financial freedom like Ron Le Grand offer people like you and me the chance to learn from their mistakes (Experiences) and benefit from their triumphs. These kind mavericks offer people just like you and me a plan that you can build on and perfect. They make it easy by providing the real world education through articles, workshops, seminars, conferences e-books, CDs and books. Not knowing how to do a thing is no excuse for not doing the thing. Educate yourself. Find and read at least twelve months of specialty or trade magazines that relate to the area you are interested in. A great way to find out how others are building wealth is to answer their solicitation ads. Put yourself on their mailing lists and you are sure to collect a boat load of industry information. Another great way to educate yourself about something you know nothing about is to join trade associations or clubs. Take as many classes and Workshops as you can and build the knowledge base you need to reach your goals.
