Friday Thoughts with Pat – 12/4/20

Friday Thoughts

It doesn’t take money to make money, it takes courage. Be the person that has that uncomfortable conversation. Be the new agent/investor who is out banging on doors while your peers are setting up their LLC and spending hours on their “business plan”. Get uncomfortable, you will never accomplish your dreams inside of your comfort…

Focused attention is a modern day superpower. At Yellowbird, our Secret Weapon is The Compound Effect; steady, focused progress.  Small wins completed consistently over time yield massive results.   Without that clear direction, it’s easy to get lost in the daily whirlwind.  You can be busy as hell all day but not make ground on…

Friday Thoughts on Thursday this week:   Yellowbird’s Best Buddies campaign closes out at the Virtual Gala this Friday, November 13th at 6:30 PM.   The number of close friends, family, and businesses who have come out to support us here has been incredible.  Seeing first hand the appreciation of the people in the Best Buddies…

A clock-builder creates a machine that anybody can use when given the knowledge on how to do so.   A time-teller needs to be present and active for anybody to know what’s going on. Telling the time will give you a quick high, everyone likes to be the expert, the person who solves the problem. The problem is that…

Friday Thoughts with V.P. Pat Flynn 10/16

I was reminded this past weekend how short and fragile life is.   You can wake up one morning healthy as a horse, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, kiss your kids, and never come home that night.   Every day that you wake up with the people you love around you is a win and…

Be genuine, be yourself, and the market will come to you.   I have seen this first hand through the past 10 years of my life. Most of my mistakes and screw-ups can be traced back to taking advice when I knew in my gut it was wrong.   Don’t try to be the person…

Friday Thought with V.P. Pat Flynn 10/2

Being a successful investor or real estate agent is difficult, which is why I cringe every time I see an ad on Facebook for a $10,000 guru course to teach you to be a millionaire from your kitchen table, in your underwear, with nothing but a cell phone. I fell victim to one of those…

Wally Conway introduced me to Strategic Philanthropy, it hasn’t hit home for me until recently…   He asked me to be a Best Buddies Champion for this fundraising season. To be honest, I didn’t have much free time as it was, so taking on a campaign for a cause I wasn’t familiar with wasn’t high…

At YellowBird this week, we were having conversations about an Abundance vs. Scarcity mindset:     “There are plenty of deals out there, I just need to find them.” VS. “There isn’t enough business for all these people flooding the space.”     “I am open and generous with my knowledge to elevate others.” VS. “By teaching others, I…

The YellowBird book club did an early morning workout/ Ice Bath session to start the weekend off strong. Ice baths strengthen your mind, willpower and have some medical benefits as well, especially after a workout. As discussed this morning, they are also a great hangover cure. If you aren’t already, @iceman_hof  is a good Instagram…
