The perfect storm of opportunity is here. Are you ready for it?

I’ve been in the industry for 24 years and I’ve never seen a situation quite like the one we’re in at this very moment. On the one hand, with wars raging around the world, there’s still so many things that appear to be uncertain. And yet despite everything, the absolute fundamentals of property investing remain steadfastly unchanged, if not stronger than ever before.

It’s fair to say we’ve been on somewhat of a property rollercoaster over the last 3 years, but now, with a critical shortage of rental property, record levels of immigration, and interest rates nearing their peak, the scene is set for the perfect property investment storm.

At the start of a cycle such as this, people who benefit the most are those who already have property, or those who are financially and mentally prepared to take the leap.

So how do you prepare yourself to take advantage of the opportunities that are available right now?

Changing your habits to change your mindset

People are creatures of habit, and once we’re in a routine, we tend to stick to it. Our minds are comfortable with doing the same thing the same way, but this mindset can lead to inertia, and stop you from achieving what you really want out of life. It’s too easy to say to ourselves that we’ll do something ‘one day’, or ‘one day’ things will change. The hard fact is that if you don’t change, neither will your situation, and before you know it, you’ve let countless opportunities pass you by.

Getting into a change-ready mindset can be as simple as changing the smallest things in your daily routine. Take a different route to work. Try some cuisine you’ve never had before. If you wear a watch, spend a day wearing it on a different wrist. Little things like this can ease you out of your comfort zone and rewire your brain to think differently.

Change your internal dialogue

That little voice we all have in our heads is not necessarily always our friend, especially if it’s constantly throwing negative words like “I can’t” or “I don’t have enough time/money/knowledge” at you.

Make a conscious effort to actively listen to your thoughts and change the narrative.  This takes some practice but is very effective at rewiring your brain into seeing the positive side of things.

Put yourself in new situations

Build your confidence and courage by putting yourself in situations that require you to learn something new or challenge your thinking. Take up a new hobby. Read inspiring books. Attend one of our free webinars. Or pick up the phone and book an appointment with one of our investment strategists.

Believe me, every one of these small steps will get you that much closer to your dream of financial freedom because your mind will be open to more wealth building opportunities.
