The Secret to ZERO Failures - Season Finale | Monday Mantra

This may be the most important Mantra I have ever done and its the season finale too!

This is not just a roadmap for business, its a roadmap for life. I will be covering the struggles from my UK roots, coming to America, Buddhism, The "Burning Bush" moment of clarity and many other milestones. BUT I will also be covering my experience with my spiritual guide, my spiritual herbalist, transcendental meditation. There may be points where you think "Whoa Pete has lost it" but I assure you its all spoken with the truest sincerity I can muster.

After a decade or more of practice and application the techniques talked about have culminated in I now have no failure and ultimate freedom. I know this one is out there for sure but its given to you with nothing but the heartfelt desire to show you what took me years to discover and that has utterly and unimaginably shaped my life infinitely for the better. Thanks for being watching and for being part of the rebellion.

Using Your Spiritual Compass to Succeed in Business | Pete Lorimer Mantra

Business and spirituality can co-exist, and here's my take on it.

👉 Steven Covey coined the term "abundance mindset" and it's something I live my life by today. I didn't use to. As a boy growing up in England, I learned to live by the scarcity theory: There's not enough money, jobs, etc., to go around... so I have to get MINE.

Abundance means there's MORE than enough for everyone on the planet. To share, without anything being removed from them. I really didn't hear much about this theory growing up, in the music industry, and in real estate.

It's a pretty wonderful thing. It took me a moment to adopt and I was fearful in the beginning. However, I've discovered something amazing: the more I give away, the more returns.

👉 We can't carry around resentment. Resentment is toxic, EVEN if it's "understandable" to some. If someone harms me, it's understandable, in this world, to harbor resentment. But I see it like this: resentment is a poison that I DRINK and then hope someone else dies. I counteract resentment by practicing something -- if someone wrongs me, I literally wish them every success in the world.

👉 I need to offer something in order to get something. What am I willing to give and what am I wanting in return?

Pinpoint what you want. I used to write down everything I wanted in my life in my little moleskin. I then wrote a contract. I said, for my part, I will give away anything and everything I know to anyone who wants to listen. In return, I'd like to hit these goals.

Four years later, I realized I hit all of them.

👉 You need to know that you deserve to succeed. We have to visualize our dreams and our goals. It's weird and it works. We must remain consistent with this. Keep your goals and dreams in your mind. It works if you work it. Remain in action and keep your dreams at the forefront of your mind.

Taste your dreams.

Here's how the universe rewards this: When you keep putting in the effort, the universe will hear it, and she will put in your hands what you need (not necessarily what you want).

Give away everything. Dinner always tastes better with friends.

How to Obtain Life Goals - The Roadmap | Peter Lorimer Mantra

It's not all about the hustle or grind. It's about LIFE. I'm interested in working to live, not living to work.

Here are my tricks for maximizing my time and getting the most out of it:

4:30: ⏰ wake up. I HATE waking up this early. But I do it.

5:00-6:00 am: I plan my entire day. Tip: I outsource tasks such as laundry, groceries, etc. to maximize efficiency.

6:00-7:00 am: Gym

7:00-8:30 am: Prospect. Every 👏 Single 👏 Day 👏

8:30-10:00 am: PLG emails

👆That's it friends. I bank my hours. I get up at 4:30 am and start my day. Think about it... I've worked half a day before the work day starts. If you add that extra banked time up, you've worked an extra 2.5 days a week.

What can you do with that extra time? Whatever you want! Use it to get more work done, or use it to do what YOU want without feeling guilty.

I'm not interested in watching my life blow by because I'm working all the time. I'm also not interested in becoming wealthy at the cost of someting else.

My extra chunk of time in the morning is how I obtain my goals. It gives me an extra day or two. It's how I get ahead, and it can help you, too.

The Art of Work-Life Balance Part 2 | Pete Lorimer Mantra

It's time for PART 2 of The Art of Work-Life Balance 👏

So many entrepreneurial mentors will tell you the "deal" or the "money" is what you should strive for. I'm an entrepreneur, and I don't necessarily subscribe to this idea.

What drives me is not money. I'm in business to improve my life, not just my bank balance. I know I need time to decompress and spend time with my family. That makes me a better worker.

👉Calendaring

I don't just calendar our work life. I also calendar our personal life. Dinner, family time - everything is mapped out and goes into the calendar. The most important things in the calendar never get moved. Make sure you calendar your personal time and make it immovable. I used to feel guilty when I had free time. Do you feel that way? Book something else in. Fill your free time with something productive and worthwhile.

👉Banking Hours

I bank my hours. Example: If I get started at work early, I can bank time for later. Tip: multi-task. A personal example - I needed to work out and my son wanted some "boy time", so I went on a hike with my boy.

👉Know Your Value Per Hour

Cindy and I made the decision (best decision we ever made). We hired a housekeeper. We also have someone wash our cars. And I now have someone come to the house and cut mine and my son's hair. It might seem like a lot, but I save so much cumulative time by doing these things.

"I will have a life when I retire" NOPE. Not me. I want to spend quality time NOW. It's just as important as work time. And it can especially work if we bank hours by getting to work earlier sometimes.

I believe you can have your cake and eat it, too. I want to enrich my life by working with people I love and adore, and spending time with my family that I love and adore.

At the end of the day, I'm not gonna want 1 million dollars, I'm going to want time with my family.

One fuels the other. Life is short.

Life is really short.

Pete Lorimer Podcast - The Power Of The Pause

Pete Lorimer Podcast - The Power Of The Pause

This is a mantra super close to my heart, as I’ve implemented in my daily life for over two decades now.  That’s how effective it is.  We all experience instances where we are questioning ourselves in terms of what we are doing, where we are going in life, what’s happening with the people around us, etc.  We all get in situations where we become overemotional and our judgment gets a bit clouded.  For example: Is my client working with another realtor? The person I’m working with on this deal just really pissed me off, etc.   The way to handle any of these situations is simple… just PAUSE.  The Power Of The Pause will save you from making big mistakes, possibly ruining relationships and veering off your path. 

A few rules for when you find yourself wanting to react to something that’s got you riled up or filled with doubt.  Stop, take a breather and remember… 

-    If it’s a good idea now, it’s still going to feel like a good idea the next morning.

-    If we react too quickly it’s saying that we don’t trust the person we are dealing with, or that we don’t trust ourselves.

-    Sometimes things are time sensitive and we don’t have a whole day to sit on it, but we can always take SOME time.  Take an hour to calm down and then reassess. 

The Power Of The Pause is a life tactic I implore you to adopt.  You’ll be stunned at how much second-guessing it will settle within yourself and just how many negative situations it will help you avoid getting yourself into!  Trust me.

I really appreciate all of the responses.  Thanks for listening AND for being part of the rebellion.

Cheers

Pete

Man vs Machine - Big Data & Where It's Going in Real Estate - Monday Mantra Motivational

Man vs Machine - Big Data & Where It's Going in Real Estate - Monday Mantra Motivational

Big Data is pervasive in all industries, I have always been someone who embraces change, so I’m a fan of the recent surge of data driven applications, but there is a dark side and it’s important to not get lost in it… 

So, let’s get to it.  Information about real estate is now available to ALL people.  There is a tidal wave of it (Remine, Property Radar, Inman, etc).  People can find it ALL on their own.  So, where does that leave us?  Will we (Man) be obsolete in real estate?  The answer is, YES, BUT it will ONLY replace us if we sit back and let it.  If we look at Big Data as a tool that can help us provide extra service to our clients, it will only help us.

When everyone runs in one direction, I tend to run in the other.  You need to embrace the change with the machine that is Big Data and spin it to your advantage.  Old school is the New School.  The most important thing you can do is form genuine relationships and keep them.  What it comes down to is, PEOPLE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE and will always choose them over a machine.  Be that person your client wants.

Courage is a Love Affair with the Unknown - Monday Mantra

I was in a meeting over the weekend and I heard this phrase "Courage is a love affair with the unknown" and it really, really resonated with me. If everything in life was a dead cert what a boring life this would be. I have always bought massively into the theory that life is all about the journey and not the destination and this phrase perfectly galvanizes the ethos.

In the mantra I cover a great deal of ground talking about strategies, theories and a whole host of other information. Mantra, for me, has become a great way to klick off the week and make sure I slam into it head on with all the gusto I can muster. So strap in, thanks for joining me, you coming along for the ride just means the world an so I thank you for your eyes, your ears and for being part of the rebellion.

Cheers

Pete
