The CarrotCast Podcast for Real Estate Investors & Agents

I wasn’t always wealthy... I didn't come from money, I never had an upper hand in life, and I’m not even that great at managing my own money. But thankfully I had a few people in my life who took their time to show me how to view money in a completely different way, recognize the opportunity that is available to everyone, and create abundant, lasting wealth that brings real freedom & flexibility, and allows me to make a massive impact. And today, I’m going to break it all down for you. Get ready to take notes and follow me on IG @trevor.mauch to get my wealthy “cheat sheet” and other golden nuggets from this episode.

I thought I had it all figured out. I was making over 100k a year as my own boss. But I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t who I wanted to become - the best version of myself. I was Insecure. I was afraid of failing. I knew there was something more and I was going to do whatever it took to take the leap of faith, even if it meant walking away from everything I’d built. It was time to chase my vision. It was time to take a risk, conquer my fears, my insecurities, and forget about what other people think. It was time to go down, so I could go up.

THE CONVERSATION:

2:18  - I was miserable… It was 2010 and I’d hit a financial low of making just 16k a year. Something had to change. I knew there was more. More purpose, more happiness, more purpose. I had to transform.

4:48 - Why risks and sacrifices, and ultimately facing your fears must come before success: A tree, a seed, and a bird.

6:57 - 15 20 years later fully grown - a bird makes a home. Producing fruit and purpose. Momma bird raising the babies. Baby wants to fly, has to stand on the edge of the nest and jump off. Innate drive to fly and succeed

10:03 - I finally had a breakthrough and netted 15k in one day! At the time I thought I had it all figured out. But I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I had to take a leap of faith and figure out how to make money while being happy, having purpose, and adding value.

12:15 - I’m someone who doesn’t ask for help. I tried to leave it all up to myself and do it alone. I had to get over that. I had to shed my shell, get transparent, and get over my insecurities.

15:04 - “I’ve got a plan” Why any time someone criticizes you for following your own dreams, they’re speaking to their own insecurities or inabilities.

19:35 - Ego was one of my biggest obstacles. I had to conquer that too.  

20:56 - I want to give you permission to take a step back, to forget what other people might think, and take a step down, so you can grow up. Let me walk you through writing down your “shells” aka what’s holding you back. What do you need to conquer?

23:39 - Now write down your vision - the seed, water, and the tree. Does it get you insanely excited? Does it give you the energy you need to become your best self?

24:55 - Finding your purpose.
