Early on when I started learning about real estate I constantly wrestled with the fact that I was just a beginner and if I uncovered a "good deal" then I must be missing something because if it was that good of a deal someone more talented than me would have already bought it. Man was I wrong. I was bound determined to buy what I thought was a good deal even if I messed it up. I worked endlessly. Literally night and day and on weekends. Here is what I found. There were more money making deals than I could handle! Once you look at "X" amount of deals you will start seeing what the normal eye can't see. It is hard to explain. Most people give up just a little to early. A good friend of mine saw all the success I was having so he started looking in the same town as me. He told me he was going to become an investor. Exactly 1 week later he came up to me and said "there just aren't any good deals out there". He gave up and I bought 15 more properties in that area in the next 15 months. He said I just got "lucky". Either I got lucky or I just never quit looking until I found what I was looking for. Never,Never,Never,Never Give Up!
