To all the DG family.
I just got the unfortunate news on Tuesday before Thanksgiving that I along with 50 others would no longer be needed at my current employment.
Now, while I felt this was the best news I could have received, my family is really stressing over the holidays because now I lack the secured income that a J.O.B. provides. I have been trying to tell them, that it is only secured as long as you work there.
I have been a student of real estate since I was 18; I am now 32 and still have yet to buy my first investment property. I get stuck into an analysis paralysis mode.
I purchased Dean's "Think a Little Different in RE" years ago, along with countless other RE course, and I never gave anyone of them a real shot. Maybe it was my perception that you needed money or credit to buy RE. Or maybe, it was my family always bringing up the "what if's". Maybe it was my lot of things.
I am currently back on the J.O.B. hunt to suffice my family and the eventual bill collector before he arrives. I would really like to get started in RE investing ASAP, however, with all the knowledge I have gained over the years... I am still afraid to take that next step. I am still "afraid" of failure.
Other than surronding myself with the positive people on this site, is there any magic forumla for getting over my fear?
I apologize for the long post and thanks in advance for any responses.
