If I’ve learned anything from my time with Mr. Graziosi’s book, these phenomenal forums or my own experience; you have to be tenacious. The bare bones are we’re interested in real estate because we want to see big returns on our investments. We all want to be skipping merrily to the nearest bank with our earnings. You can spend hours and hours on this website or reading Mr. Graziosi’s books, but YOU have to take that first step forward. Only you can decide what’s best for you.
In many cases, the biggest obstacle isn’t poor credit or shoddy income, it’s ourselves. We’re scared to get out of our comfort zones and chase the things we desire. It is very scary, at least initially, to take those first steps into any new venture. But you have to overcome that or no amount of knowledge you receive here will do you any good. You’re going to have to make those calls, write those emails and be firm on the negotiations table. Let your voice be heard.
This website is the best support group anyone who’s trying to break into this business could dream of. The regulars really take a vested interest in you and your success. They’ve been there and made the deals we want to make. These people have enough resources to be doing anything they want to do. But they want to be here, on the forums, with us. That should be a huge boost of confidence for everyone.
The quickest way to learn any trade is to have first hand instruction. You’ve got that here. If I gave you all the tools necessary, a thorough instruction booklet and a friendly environment to work in; you would be able to build anything. Why should this be any different?
Be tenacious. You have to go out there and make things happen. The wonderful things we all want aren’t going to just appear out of thin air while we’re lounging on the couch. There is little luck in real estate and banking on a feeling isn’t the right formula for success. You need to research, calculate and see if the things you’re trying to accomplish can work out on paper. An educated investor will always triumph over a spur of the moment one.
There’s not a doubt that everyone here can succeed in whatever they choose to do. The only barrier that can hold any of you back is if you don’t take that first step and get the knowledge that’s available to you here through the books and forums. This isn’t a fear tactic, it’s the honest truth. But I have a feeling you’re going to make the right decision for yourself and your future.
Thanks for reading. Good luck!
