  • In the Spotlight

    Most inspirational discussions - EVER - on Property Tribes.

    There are times when we all feel a bit lonely, a bit anxious, or a bit disillusioned.

    When we feel like this, I believe that help or support is a lot closer than we imagine, especially if we are part of a network or community.

    One thing I have learned over 10 years of being a landlord, is how important it is to get the right input from the most qualified source.

    Making important decisions based on wrong information can be deadly in property!

    Here are the top discussions on PT that have helped me through challenging times, helped me see a new angle, see a way forwards, inspired me, or simply warmed my heart:

    Whoever said anyone has a right to give up?

    The Happy Thread ...

    And this comment I heard recently at a property networking event:

    "If you're good at something you have a responsibility to yourself to use your talent".
    Every Sunday I receive an inspirational email from Sunil Bali.

    Sunil suggests that we should make every day "Chooseday".

    Andy Warhol spent much of his childhood bedridden as a result of the effects of scarlet fever. Teased at school because of his blotchy skin, Warhol found sanctuary in the art room.

    When he was 12 years old Warhol spent several months working on a painting that he was extremely proud of.

    But just as he was applying the finishing touches, his father died.

    Then when he came back to school after the funeral, he found that his painting had been taken.

    When he burst into tears whilst explaining what had happened, his mother said, "Wow! It must have been fantastic for someone to want to risk getting caught stealing it and being expelled from school. I can't wait to see you're next painting."

    From that moment young Warhol chose to be an artist.

    Within the space of three years, Fauja Singh had lost his wife, a daughter and a son. He was 84 years old and was consoled by other elderly folk who had also lost loved ones. Singh noticed that most of the elderly wounded healers who counseled him, whilst well intentioned, had retreated from life and were merely existing.

    Singh didn't want to join this club, so chose to join his local running club to prove that its never too late.

    At the age of 93, Singh broke the world marathon record for the 90-plus age bracket by 58 minutes, clocking a time of 6 hours and 54 minutes.

    Last year, aged 101, Singh completed the Hong Kong 10k in just over an hour and a half. Singh has given up competitive running, but still chooses to run for pleasure.

    You could choose to paint, you could choose to run, you could choose to have fun, or you could choose to join one of the two biggest clubs in the world:

    The "If Only" Club or,
    The BMW Club (bitching, moaning, whining) or,

    visit an island that we've all been to, but many of us never leave, called Someday Isle.

    Whatever you choose. The choice is yours. It always has been.

    Happy Chooseday.

    What a great morale boosting line from his mother.
    Positivity must have run through her veins.
    We all love a good moan and a whinge though.

    Just limit it to 5 minutes a day

    That leaves 23 hrs 55 minutes to crack on with life

    Jonathan Clarke. http://www.buytoletmk.com

    Ha, agree with you there Jonathan about limiting it!

    I love small dosages of positivity during my day/week, especially that in this thread, but I find too much can be detrimental to one's productivity. It is all to easy for these forms of inspiration to substitue actual success, letting you experience success vicariously through the quotes without actually applying it yourself.  

    It's all about balance!

    Just want to add:

    Where does your passion for property come from? It contains some amazing inspirational stories of people who started from very humble beginnings and have done incredibly well through property.
