Floyd MayWeather And His Iconic Boxing Cum Business Success - Real Estate Magnate

I am not a boxing fan but after a fascinating conversation with @iretidee (Instagram) about “Money” Mayweather, I see a sportsman that has slowly and methodically built a financial empire. Here are some success lessons that we can all glean from his remarkable journey:

1. Your past doesn’t define your future

He made up in his mind to break the cycle of poverty in his family. Instead of allowing the circumstances of his past hinder him, he used them as fuel to build his future. We may not always have power over what happens to us, but we always have power over how we choose to respond.

2. Talent is nothing without hard work and dedication

Whilst he is extremely gifted, a lot of Mayweather’s success can be attributed to his incessant, intense, training regimen and work ethic; 2-3 times a day, all year long. There is no off-season in his world. If you need to be dragged out of your own bed every morning to chase after your dream, success will always be illusory. It is hard work that makes the potential, actual.

3. Constant learning

He may have world-class trainers but his self-motivation and discipline are constant. He trains like a man possessed, eats a very strict diet, doesn’t drink alcohol, and doesn’t gain weight. He is forever a student of boxing, constantly tweaking, improving, analyzing his techniques and strategies, and improving himself in and out of the ring, to become a stronger, smarter and better boxer.

4. Mastering your craft

To become a true great in any chosen field, you must maintain an intense focus over the long haul to master your craft, whatever it may be. Over time, he studied every aspect of the boxing world and how it runs. So many sportsmen end up broke. He found out precisely how the boxing and business worlds operate, and positioned himself both as fighter and as promoter, signed to Mayweather Promotions sharing lucrative pay-per-view sales proceeds.

5. Superior desire and drive

When some athletes, musicians, actors, business-people and other successful people reach a certain level of success they can become complacent and lose some of their drive.But the true greats retain their relentless attitude to keep pushing their limits as intensely as someone who is just starting out.

6. Have an A-Team

Floyd often speaks about his loyal, hard-working and talented team; his trainers, his support group, and his business associates. Look closely at any big success story and you find that there’s always a close knit trusted team and quality support group of advisers, managers and experts. These people are focused on the same vision, and bring varying skills and knowledge to compliment your strengths

7. Diversification

Floyd has earned from promotional deals and merchandise sales, but it is his significant investments in prime commercial real estate that are likely to keep passive income flowing far into the future.

8. Self-Belief

As important as it is to have others believe in us, it serves no good if we don’t believe in ourselves. Our beliefs will shape our reality; His unshakeable belief in himself and his potential is the foundation of all his achievements.

Advantages of buying from Real estate companies instead of Omonile

Real Estate developers give you the advantage of paying on installment. Up to  6 months or even more in some cases. You can't try that with Omonile. They take their money outright.

Real estate companies gives you the advantage of buying while you wait. ie you can buy now and develop in ten years in as much as you clear the area regularly
 Real estate companies perfect titles.  Wetin concern Omonile with title. OYO
Land may be cheap when you buy from omo Onile but the trouble you face after full payment of the land is unquantifiable.

 You don't pay developmental levy when you buy from omo Onile, but the type of trouble they cause when you want to start building is not small and as a matter of fact you might even spend double the price you bought the land or loose the land you bought with your hard earned money and sweat.

Honestly I won't advice my enemies to buy from Omo Onile, let alone my friends!

I just felt this should add to our knowledge and equip our Real Estate understanding and asset investments.

The name "Land Banking" implies almost exactly what it is. Rather than putting cash into a savings account (where it will earn a maximum of 1% interest every year) or the stock market (which has become increasingly unpredictable in recent years), some entrepreneurs have taken an alternative approach by acquiring LAND and in doing so, they have chosen to park their cash in a tangible, fixed asset – one that cannot be broken, stolen or destroyed.

Vacant land gets ignored by most new investors because let's be honest – it just doesn't sound that exciting. Unfortunately, this causes most people to overlook a lot of the advantages that land has over traditional real estate investments (e.g. – houses, apartment buildings, commercial properties, etc.). Unlike most residential and commercial buildings, land costs virtually nothing to own… no utili…
