Been thinking about this lately, after reading Killing Fairfax and seeing the Clive Palmer story on ABC
I combine that with what I saw as an agent and looking at Palmer, James Packer and Laughlin Murdoch I can see it requires a degree of abandonment of all fear.

The developers I worked with as an agent just jumped in on the basis that those who dare win, and a lot of the time they did and when they didn't they'd pick themselves up and do it again, where they ultimately end up I'm not sure but get a few wins in a row under your belt and you start to become bullet proof.

Palmer developed real estate, then at the age of 27 and with about $40m to play with he didn't sit back and retire he put the lot on mining in WA, went to China to see if they would buy the stuff and did a deal that saw him get $500m a year for the next 30 years.

So when you're sitting down sweating over the mortgage payments give some thought to how these guys think BIG and don't give a stuff about anything else.

I don't think I could be one of them but I can see, in part at least, how they do it...............a complete lack of fear.

Self defeating dodger, you already have in your mind that you can't so never will.

I'm too complacent now though a woman I know in the USA's father who is 90 made most of his money between 75 and 85 from cattle and oil.  :eek:

Viagra for the brain would be good. :scratchchin:

There's already something to take away fear, I drink quite a bit of it.

Don't think that will help - the stuff you take for the fear would counteract the Brain Viagra.....

There are a few products out there claiming improvements of brain function, 'smart drugs' if you will. Still an emerging area though.

And still with the self defeating, 'complacent' is only a state of mind and that can be changed.

Yes I agree but to do what they do I would have to risk a lot of what I have and that's where I differ from them.........in part.
