Everyday, whether I post or not, I read the post in the forums and I think....there are so many NEW people joining us everyday but do they realize the REAL opportunity that is knocking.
Its not everyday that you get to join a community like DG.com or much of anywhere else for that matter, and be able to talk with, get advice and learn from hundreds of others - ALL pursuing the same dream. Financial independence, security, log-term cash flow and peace of mind.
This is an opportunity that should not be taken lightly. I answer a lot of questions, as do others on here. We see the same questions being asked over and over again, but the one that particularly caught my attention this week was one where someone asked...if the book was so EZ to read and understand, then why all the questions. Well my answer to that is simple, Deans book is simple and EZ to understand but not everyone has the same knowledge of REI. So we all learn at a different pace. Ergo the questions. Patience is a big part of learning.
I guess what I am saying is that, there are a lot of real estate sites out there and a lot of real estate everything, but have yet to find a community so open and informative as the one we have here. This "IS" Opportunity knocking, are you listening?
Take advantage of the forums and become more active. Ask questions, look for answers, the only dumb question is the ones that are not asked.
Use this site o your full advantage and gain the most from it. You have taken the first step in making your REI dreams come true by reading Deans book and joining this site, now use what you have been so given on here and use it to your advantage. READ, READ, READ....don't assume anything, ASK!.....Get to know others in and around your area on here. Make solid contacts in REI that will last you a lifetime.
I have made not only contacts but friends on here, namely RINA. We talk almost everyday and still fine time to correspond on here and we still learn something NEW everyday, if not from each other then from all of the others on here. Learning is a process and so is REI. Its a process that if done correctly with reap benefits for years to come.
Opportunities come in many different shapes and in many different ways. Don't think that just because there are so many questions being asked on here that this is not for you. That simply means that there are others out there trying to do the same thing as you and you should look on that as the not just having the Power of One (you) but having the Power of Many (everyone on dg.com). Support and encouragement can make or break a person and their dreams. I come here for both and it flows like that water form the rivers.
Embrace this wonderful opportunity, take advantage of what you have at your hands and realize that the only drams never fulfilled are those never pursued.
