Linz’s Friday Musings – November 1st 2019

G’day all

Pinch and a punch for the first of the month!  Or something like that 🙂

Seems like ages since I put out a newsletter, November already here in Oz, and Halloween in the States! Wow!

Been quite a whirlwind month for us here at Star Dynamic.  Launch of our new online portal, launch of the Fix & Flip Academy course, and also our brand new Investors Inner Circle.  Been amazing the response we have been getting from everyone!  If you haven’t had a chance to get a look at with the Inner Circle can offer or the course, reach out to our team and we can let you know all about it…

With everything that’s been going on, can be very easy to get that feeling of overwhelm. 

Ever had that to-do list so large that you don’t know where to start?

Laid in bed trying to rest (coz damn, you need it…) but you head keeps running all the things you have to do, all the “overdue” tasks you haven’t done…? 


Can be easy to fall into this pattern.  But we must remember that the feeling of overwhelm comes from a scarcity mindset…

“There is not enough time to do everything!”  Said this to yourself once or twice yeah? 

See, even though this is the story we tell ourselves, truth is there is always time, we all have the same 24 hours.  As Einstein said, “time is relative”.  5 seconds with your hand on a hot plate, can feel like an hour! While spending an hour with a loved one, can feel like seconds.  If we can change our mindset to an abundance mindset…there is always time.  There is always more out there, more clients, more opportunities, more love… we just have to go get it.

There are 4 stages of life:

  1. Life AS me
  2. Life happens TO me
  3. Life happens BY me
  4. Life happens THROUGH me

We are born at stage one, for the first 5-7 years of our life we just are…just soaking up everything we can, working out what this wonder called life is. 

Then as we get older we move into stage 2.  This is where we can start to feel that overwhelm, that scarcity mindset.  I don’t have enough time!  There’s not enough money.  There are not enough opportunities for me.  We start blaming everything else for what is happening to us, without realising that we are actually in the driver’s seat of this thing called LIFE.

A few then can move through into stage 3, whereby they realise that we are in control of our own destiny.  The things that happen are consequences of the decisions we make and therefore we can shape this beautiful gift of life, rather than have it shape us.  We can now begin to control what happens, and certainly how we react and deal with it.  Stage 3 is where we understand, rather than fight against life, leverage it to achieve.  Abundance mindset… I have time, I have opportunities, I just need to go get them!

Finally, occasionally you might come across a person who just seems to have an aura to them.  A light, or deep sense of belonging that we can consciously feel.  Ever been at a party and suddenly someone walks in that you unconsciously stop and notice?  Talked to someone that you just get this feeling of peace and love from, like they radiate power.  This is stage 4…very rarely do we find those that manage to obtain this.

I met two such individuals last week, but I will tell you about that another time…

Have a great weekend all and Happy Investing…!!
