If real estate entrepreneur Jim Toner were a fictional character, he’d be the guy on the next stool at the diner, listening to our hero respond to the counter gal that has asked how he’s doing as precursor to taking his order. Our hero is a bit down, noting that though is heart is true, he’s having difficulties and lamenting that the chips aren’t falling his way. Jim tells our hero that if he’s decided to keep at it, he needs to stand up straight, set his shoulders square, grab the bull by the horns and kick it in the teeth, because any other course of action is just wishing and whining. But he’s not a character in a novel, he’s a real guy who’s been up, down, and up again, and is willing to share his experience to help others realize their goals. Much of his advice comes in the form of re-enforcing precepts we understand but don’t internalize.
Clear your mind, Toner does this through a 2-step process at the start of his day. Waking at 5:30AM he spends 30 minutes thinking pushing the detritus of the past from top of mind. Then he spends a couple of hours in a robust workout. A gym rat from youth, he lives the discipline of practicing pushing past limits in his regime, every day, all the time. Limits to achievement are largely self-imposed, one of the kernels of truth in SEAL training is that when you think you’ve reached the end of your rope, you’re actually at about 40% utilization and there’s a lot more in the tank. You have to train your mind, your primary roadblock to success, to push past that because you can.
According to Jim, when he’s finished priming his engine, about 9:00AM, he starts his professional day. Jim Toner writes books, does motivational and content speeches and radio shows (his 12 Little Houses Plan is a model for achievement in real estate), and provides private counseling for select clients.
Clarify your idea, break it down into a process with components small enough to achieve, and identify who you need to help get it moving. Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman says if you can’t teach your idea to a child you don’t understand it.
Three factors he speaks of are counter-intuitive:
