Investor 0:00The people that I’ve been introduced to from Sarah to Karen next door, the person that handles your organizational things, our operations manager, yeah, the people in the markets, to the financing people, property managers and your local real estate experts, they’ve been just more than helpful. I mean, seriously, and that’s why I’m back for more, I’ll be buying more properties this month. And as you point out, it’s a little bit of work up front, really the works up front and later on as with my other properties, it’s really not too bad. And the returns are just outstanding. The downside? It’s not that significant. Yeah. So I think it’s just a wonderful program and doing a great service for peopleexpress gratitude as well.

Jason Hartman 1:29Welcome to Episode 1335 into our American listeners, Happy Thanksgiving into all of you in 188 other countries around the world. Thanks for joining us today. We’re not going to talk much about business today. Because it is a day off. It is a day to be thankful a day to be grateful, and a day to focus on what we have. Not well we don’t have pay human nature is all about distance. contempt. And that’s okay, as long as it is constructive discontent, right? constructive discontent. Well, hey, I hope you’re grateful and thankful. On this day for what we talked about yesterday. Real Estate Investors you should be very thankful that Fannie Mae has in Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac has increased the loan limit for conforming loans to the base amount of $510,000, like we talked about yesterday, but in the more expensive markets, up to 150% of that base value. Okay, that’s it for business today. That’s all I’m going to talk about about business. Other than that, I just want to say that I am thankful for the opportunity to be your guide in helping you create wealth and have a better future. To all of you who’ve been following my work for the past 15 years. Or maybe even before that, even though I wasn’t doing the same work before that I was helping people broker real estate, and many of them were investors, but also homeowners, home sellers, home buyers, in the traditional side of the real estate business that I was in for many years before this, and I know many of you became investor clients. And I am very thankful for all of your business and thankful to all of you for allowing me to have the career that I just kind of created out of the blue 15 years ago, when I realized as I was trying to be a nationwide investor that it was really difficult to do this by myself. So I got into this business and created my first company in this business to basically be my own first customer. I was the first customer of the business. And I guess that’s similar to a lot of entrepreneurs stories where they say See frustration, they see a difficulty they see pain. And out of that pain comes a new idea, a new inspiration, a new business that could help a lot of other people. And I know we have helped a lot of other people over the years. In fact, you know, thousands of transactions. Now I don’t know exactly how many. But in my entire real estate career, I know that I’m approaching between myself my personal transactions in real estate, and brokering properties for clients and doing my own deals and helping people buy and sell properties and invest and build their portfolios nationwide. I know that I’m approaching 10,000 real estate transactions 10,000 Wow.
Jason Hartman 4:47I can’t say I ever thought I’d see the day 10,000 transactions, and I’m not there yet. And I don’t know the exact number. But I just did the math and I kind of went through an estimated the number of trends actions I did each year for all the years I’ve been in this business and hey, it’s close to 10,000. I, again, I wish I knew the exact number. But you know, software changes over the years. And I did not keep a diary of that anywhere. So you’ll just have to go with my estimate, but it’s close to 10,000. So I’m very thankful to all of you who’ve allowed me to have this career who have trusted me and my team as your guide to help you build wealth and I know many of you have retired because of the work we’re doing. So that is, that is just awesome. It is just totally awesome. So anyway, it is Thanksgiving Day and even if you live in one of the 188 countries listening that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving. You know, it’s just good to focus at least once a year, hopefully every day, and hopefully the fearless soul soundtrack I’m about to play for you, which is just Over slightly over five minutes long, it’s very short will help us. I know it certainly helped me. But help all of us focus on a daily basis on all the great things we have to be thankful for. And here are five of them. We will be back with our regularly scheduled programming, As the old saying goes tomorrow, and then resuming, of course on Monday, and we’re coming at you with five episodes per week. Oh, one more thing I keep forgetting to mention. Remember the guided visualizations that many of you really have given us very positive feedback about we move that off of this feed, it’s got its own feed, so on iTunes, or whatever podcast platform you’re using around the world. Just look up Jason Hartman, guided visualizations. Those are continuing we’re publishing those so they are still out. They’re for you. We decided to take them out of this podcast feed and put them on their own feed, because they’re kind of meditative. And they really require you to be relaxing, not at the gym or driving or whatever, right? So they didn’t fit in with our regular stuff. So those are on their own feed the guided visualizations, take advantage of those, subscribe to that as well, because that’s for a different purpose, but very, very powerful to be visualizing your future, in a multi dimensional way, and it will help you become a much more successful real estate investor. So, again, thank you to all of you listening from around the world, 189 countries around the world.

A great little soundtrack from the fearless soul YouTube channel.
Jason Hartman 8:05Everyone needs gratitude in their life, including, and especially those who say they have nothing to be grateful for. Gratitude is an emotion that never does harm, but always does so much good. When you can appreciate all the things you do have, you not only feel better right away, which is the ultimate goal anyway. But you open up a space to attract so much more to be grateful for commit to give gratitude to traffic 30 days, I promise it will change your life forever. Start with these five things to be grateful for today. Number one, you are alive. Let’s start at the bottom with something we all take for granted. The biggest thing we used to take for granted is our life. Our life in the lives of those who love We all see examples of lives that the incessantly and far too soon, but most of us still take our own life for granted, as if it could never happen to us or our loved ones. No one has any guarantee of next year, next month, or even tomorrow. Be thankful for the life and time you do have, especially for those you. Number two, your health. If you’re like most people, your first thought when you’re unwellness I just want to feel bad. But when we are better, most of us still feel our bodies with food and substances we should and feed our mind with negativity and stress which is not needed and causes disease in our body. Be grateful that you have your health. If you have an illness or disease, be grateful for the parts of your body that is healthy. Those positive fives will spread and at the very least will make you feel If you’re really spreading positive vibes and gratitude for your health, chances are you can replace your prescription drugs with positive thoughts and gratitude in a very short space of time. Number three, opportunity. We live in an age of abundant with opportunity. Never has there been a time in human history but more options to create your own income, do things you love in your own way in your own time and get paid for it. The earning potential today is virtually limitless. And unlike many years ago, you don’t need a fancy education to achieve. All you need is a wheel to learn and a great belief in yourself. Be grateful for the abundance of opportunities and trust your intuition on which path you should take. It might not happen right away and you may fail many times before you reach success. But you can always be grateful for there is always opportunity to start it. And this time with much more wisdom number for the people in your life. This doesn’t mean you have to feel love for all family members and friends at all times. You might feel grateful for some family members who have taught you valuable life lessons. Like exactly how you don’t want to be. You might be grateful for some who have given you pain, for they made you strong. But most importantly, be grateful for the family and friends. You love the most. Those that will always stand by your side, no matter what. If you’re not blessed to have this in your life right now. Be grateful that you’re on a path to becoming a person that will attract those people in your life in the near future. Be grateful. You can be that person for someone else, because you are shown the opposite Number five. Be grateful for the hard times. The hard times our greatest teachers and where we grow our strength and character the most. It’s certainly not easy feeling appreciative of challenging times, especially when you’re in the middle. But if you can recall some difficult moments from your past, I’m sure you’ll find that most often. those difficult times lead to something better in your life. Life is not always easy. And that is exactly how it was meant to be. It would be a pretty boring existence, if everything went exactly the plan every time. Be grateful for the challenges, the pain and struggle for what made you who you are today and you are perfect. Exactly as you are
