“It's not all about saving money. It's about hiring the best of the best people even if you pay a premium, because they will bring in way more money to the business than you're paying them anyway.” -Abbas Mohammed
Quitting is a gross disservice to ourselves. When we say we can’t do something, we are actually saying, “I’m not good enough to try.” We are giving up on seeing what else was out there for us— we are giving up on ourselves, on our dreams, and on our potential.
Therefore, it’s clear that giving up when the going gets tough is not the way to go. We should give ourselves more grace and credit because success only belongs to the ones who think bigger than themselves and are willing to put in the effort during those tough times.
In this episode, Daniel sits with Abbas Mohammed, one of the top 1% real estate brokers in the US and owner of The Abbas Group. But things did not always go well for Abbas. His family lacked material needs and they had to flee their home when the war broke in Iraq. Being a refugee did not bring comfort either as they strived to make ends meet day-by-day in a foreign country.
Listen in as Abbas shares why he rejected the idea of quitting despite the challenges he faced, how frustration has pushed him to do even better, how boredom moved him to achieve higher, and the importance of constantly challenging ourselves. Daniel and Abbas also talked about two things that every successful business has, why hiring is a vital process in success building, the misconceptions around having multiple income streams, and the benefits of getting rid of false beliefs.
