When you compete you lose, because your focus is on what the other person or business is doing and not cultivating the greatness you offer to your market (clients, product, service). Domination is key to success in any endeavor you set out to accomplish.

Let’s lay the ground rules for what dominating looks like. First, dominating is not controlling, manipulating, or bullying other human beings; I repeat, dominating is not dominating another human. Dominating is using all your gifts, talents, and resources from earth to flourish in your God-given calling from heaven right here on earth. Sometime ago, I got a wakeup call from a best-selling author and speaker, Grant Cardone. He shared exactly what I share with you in this writing, he said, “Dominate, don’t compete!” My first impression was who is this guy? I decided to get out of judgment and into curiosity, and heard his entire speaking session. Needless to say, his message reminded me at the core of my being to dominate, that I was meant to dominate my space and environment for the betterment of the lives I come in touch with. I approached him, “You know when I first heard you, I thought to myself, ‘who is this jerk?’ but now I realize that you were right and your message has forever branded my heart!” We shook hands and exchanged a bit more conversation, and now we are twitter acquaintances haha.

I pass on this truth to you now; whatever you are doing now, dominate it. Come with your absolute best at every moment with every human being. People are watching you, and when you least expect, you leaves marks of, what I like to call, “heaven” (excellence) everywhere you go.

Then as I conversed with God later that day He was like, “You know Grant was right, right?….” and I laughed as I walked back to my hotel on the Las Vegas strip that afternoon…See Genesis 1:28 🙂

Real estate for centuries has been associated with wealth and power, and rightfully so, because he who owns the land calls the shots. While there is some truth in my opening statement, lets first answer this question, “Is real estate a rich man’s game?” The answer is no, at least not in these blessed United States of America. Real estate homeownership and investing is for the ordinary man with a plan. I can already hear the questions coming my way, “but David, real estate isn’t cheap, at least not the decent type worth owning…” True, but who said one needs to buy expensive or use your own money? I leave you with the first clue of stepping into this “rich man’s game,” first know your personal purpose. Identify what you want in life for yourself, your future, and every person that will be part of your journey, and secondly, find your “why.” Why do you want what you want. Once these two questions are answered, then you have a better understanding how real estate will (or will not) play a role in your purpose and why. The fuel is in your purpose and why…and then the “how” begins to direct your steps. The fuel is not in how much your current bank account says you have. – #dna
