Henching for teh Foreclosure King

Dane: [...]“Rich Dad, Poor Dad” taught me to work to learn. Instead of working for money, you work to learn, and this changes everything.
It changes everything because I read that book. I called up my uncle who owned a RE/MAX office and I said, “Hey, I just read ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ and it talks about real estate. I want to learn about real estate. Can I come work for you? I don’t want any money. Don’t pay me anything. I just want to learn.”
And Rob, he’s the foreclosure king here in Des Moines, he did more foreclosures than any other office. I worked in his foreclosure department, going to the houses, setting them up and cleaning them out and all this. But I didn’t want to get paid anything. He still pai d me. I said, “Rob, I don’t want this. I just want to work to learn.” And that is why I’m here today talking to you now because that’s when I got to see all the problems in real estate and be able to solve them, all because I wasn’t worried about the money and working to learn.

Right on! So, young Dane got some good experience cleaning out foreclosed houses in Des Moines. And taking personality tests!

Personality Tests

Andrew: Work to learn with everything. You also said personality tests that you took helped you to understand yourself and to change things. What’s that personality test? That’s another book and I didn’t take down the name.
Dane: Yeah, yeah. That was life changing. When most people take personality tests, they’re like, oh, I’m a driver. I’m a this; I’m a that. They just have one word. They’ll spend 40 minutes going through a personality test, and they’ll be like, oh cool, I’m a driver. This is like four words. You just completely bumped the effectiveness of that personality test. What happened, the reason my life changed was because I dived into my type and I found out my unhealthy habits and my unhealthy states. I’m an enthusiast and I’m an achiever.

Well now. That's some powerful stuff. But seriously ... can this get any more ridiculous?


DANE MAXWELL: I tell you what, like I need to study copywriting more. I feel kind of like a fool when it comes to copywriting. I teach copywriting and I’m like I really need to learn this stuff better. The more I learn about copy the more abundant my life is. I’ve act ually been thinking about this scale of abundance. I’m thinking about it in the areas in my life that I don’t have abundance, what is preventing me from having it? So right now, I would say that while I do have women in my life, I don’t feel abundant in that area.
I was thinking about the scale of abundance and I feel like any area where it’s not fully there, there are a couple things in place. Usually I find myself clinging and grasping to an outcome and/or feeling lack and/or not giving 100 percent of my attention to that are a aka not being present in that area. What I’ve noticed, if I see a very attractive beautiful woman, the kind that resonates with me, beautiful inside and out and you can tell by the way a woman carries herself if she’s this way, I can pick it up in an instant. I can read people’s energy pretty quick.
If it’s a girl in this kind of category for me, I immediately I will kind of freeze a little and I’ll start to cling or grasp to an outcome that I’d like to have. In that moment, I am not in a state of abundance. Now how can I ever approach a relationship with this girl even as a friend or even as more if I am totally clinging and grasping on that situation. So that prevents me from abundance there. This totally applies in business. If you’re clinging and grasping to percentages of your company, where you know you should be giving them away so you can focus on other parts of your company or, if you’re clinging and grasping to not giving percentages of your sales away as an affiliate commission to bring more customers in, because you want to keep more of your profit, how is that clinging and grasping keeping you from more abundance thereto?
Since taking the wealth dynamics profile test figuring out I’m a creator and that creators are supposed to give percentages to their company away so they can go and create more pies, because it really is an abundant world and you can create as many pies as you want. Anyway, so the scale of abundance I found what prevents me from doing that is clinging and grasping and not giving 100 percent of my attention and being fully present in that moment with that activity. Wrapping this back to copywriting, I really feel like my life has become really abundant. I don’t really have lack in any area of my life at all.
