If you’re a regular follower of The Property Insider, you know that I mostly talk about what it takes to become a successful investor.

But this time I want to talk about something different – Mindset. More specifically, I’d like to discuss self-doubt as an obstacle that you should remove from your life.

In a recent podcast, I had a chance to chat with Simon Black. If you’re not an AFL fan, here’s a short intro for you: Simon was drafted back in 1997 and played 332 games for the Brisbane Lions. He won a plethora of awards and accolades and is considered a legend in the AFL world.

And yet, Simon knows very well what self-doubt feels like. If you were to tell Simon when he was a young bloke that his future contained these achievements, he wouldn’t have believed you. In fact, he never even imagined them himself, even after he got drafted in ’97.

Simon thought of himself as a skinny guy who couldn’t go head-to-head with the pros. He was full of doubt about his ability and his expertise. Moreover, he’d only played two WAFL games the year before he got drafted.

And yet, ’97 was the year that changed his life. Simon took full advantage of his opportunities, which led to him becoming one of the greatest AFL players in history.

Today, Simon is an assistant coach, he has his own academy, and he’s an avid investor. It goes without saying that he has no reason to doubt himself any longer. Yet, without finding that initial confidence to fight his self-doubt and back himself, none of this could have happened.

Conquering self-doubt is the key to achieving anything big, including building wealth and creating your dream life. If you feel like you can’t do it, that’s your self-doubt limiting you. You must get rid of it if you want to reach your true potential.

The good news is, you don’t have to do it on your own. As they say, a burden shared is a burden halved, and I, along with the IPP Australia team, are here to help you lose that self doubt and achieve your property investment goals.
