In Part 1, I shared how, after more than 23 years of being a professional/in business, I have found that while results generally follow good work, the real exponential results -the serious profit- doesn’t come always come through sheer hard work.
Here’s another formula to commit to memory: Ideas+ Knowledge+ Application = Money Tree
Ideas are usually contained in books, and books are made from trees. This is one of my main reasons for believing that money grows on trees. God very often speaks to me through books. More than 10 years ago, I was broke, struggling as a regular professional, and by grace laid my hands on some books, one of which changed the course of my life.
After reading it, I made the equivalent of $100,000/N15m in one transaction, just by following that idea (concept) in the book. I did this without a single penny in my account; just my talents, brain and belief that the ideas made sense. I followed instructions and found real estate that was well priced, after searching for hundreds as the book stipulated. I then found a buyer to take it over, and made a profit without putting down a penny because the deal was so valuable- all simply because of an idea in a “tree”, oops I meant a book! That book is called “Buying Real Estate With Nothing Down” by Robert Allen, one of my mentors whom I only just met this year.
Most breakthroughs come from ideas in books and other sources of knowledge like interacting with wise people; people can mentor you through their writings.
