Hey, it's Scott Todd, And I just wanted to send you this message because yesterday, I ended a Land investing class. It was a twelve-week program. It's called Flight School. If you want to learn more about that you can learn more about it at thelandgeek.com/training. And basically, what happens in flight school is I take a series of people or a group of people through the whole land investing process. It’s a really cool experience for me to be able to teach it. Because I see people, they start off with these dreams that they want to create a passive income. And they create that lifestyle and then what happens is that at the end of it they're doing it. And if they are following it they are working in real time and they are on their way to having the success that they want. But it's weird because when I get done with flight school in a group, I notice that a couple of things happen.

I notice that everybody that’s going through this process and maybe it's you too. Maybe you are going through this process as well. We are all trying and we are fighting to create that life that we want. Really what we want is that we want that lifestyle business right we want to be able to control our own time and not have the world control our time. When I was in my corporate gig that the one thing I hated. I hated Sundays because Sundays meant Monday was coming. And look Sunday is not a terrible day it’s a beautiful day the problem is that you start to dread Monday and all of the work you are going to have to do for the next week. Because Saturday and Sunday are not enough. It’s not enough time to connect with your family it’s not enough time re-energize yourself. And then you go on vacation in your corporate gig. You get a vacation a few times a year it’s not enough and we feel this pulling to get out of that world. And that's all normal stuff. But the problem is that we get this comfort, this little warm blanket from our corporate job it’s called a salary it’s called a paycheck. And every 2 weeks we're hugged. Maybe you get paid every 2 weeks maybe you get paid twice a month maybe it's weekly. But it’s like a little hug it’s a comforting hug and that hug is so comforting that we kind of just forget about the pain that we go through and we just accept it. Look you do have to just accept it, you can go out and create the life that you want. There's a whole other world out there that is just beautiful once you have the time and freedom to do whatever you want to do. When you're the ultimate control of your time, life is fantastic. Everything is brighter everything is better you can do what you want when you want. And that just makes everything much better in life. I've seen the other side now for almost 3 years and it’s an incredible experience. But the only way to get that is to fight for what you want. I told a story in Flight School as I was closing out that there has been research out there you can go read these articles on it. If an elephant this big massive elephant this mighty animal. When elephants are tiny if there just put a little rope around their arm, they learn that that's the limit of where they can go. It’s like handcuffs they can’t go any further. And they can live their entire lives and if you just take that rope off them, they still won’t go anywhere. They just remember the restraint that they had there. They were restrained until they remember that. These big massive animals they could have broken down the thing that was holding them it was ridiculous. And the paycheck is a lot like that it’s that comforting hug it’s that restraint. Don't go anywhere don't go anywhere you need your corporate benefits don't go anywhere we're going to give you vacation time don't go anywhere. And so, we accept the things that we don't want to accept. Because it's sometimes harder to create the lifestyle that you want. It’s a fight I’m telling you if you want to get out of where you are today you've got to have that burning desire. So, do you have the burning desire to make the change? I hope that you do. And if not, you need to create goals that are so big that it will give you the burning desire. And today, take today as you are watching this go out and do some real life dreaming. Go drive those neighborhoods that you want to afford. That you are like Oh I can’t afford this one today. Go drive it, get motivated. If those people can do it so can you. But the difference is that they had a burning desire to get there and you need to generate that burning desire inside of you to get there as well. I love going to neighborhoods that I can’t afford, driving through them because every time I’m like ‘what are they doing? if they can do it, I can do it! if they can do it, I can do it,’ and you start telling yourself that enough time all of a sudden you realize, like I CAN DO IT. And the minute that you believe in yourself and you go out and do it and you have these big goals now you have the burning desire that you need in order to change the path that you are on. its hard I know it’s hard and I know that you can do it. You just have to continue to fight to create the life that you want. Hey listen I hope you got value out of this where ever you are watching this please leave a comment for me, I'll be sure to read them. And I look forward to seeing you on your journey. Tell me about it, put it out there, where are you going, what do you want to do, what type of lifestyle you want? Believe it, and you can do it too.
