I hope the E.D.G.E. event helped you realize that the students that were speaking are just ordinary, everyday people. We weren't born smart real estate investors. We got good at real estate through desperation and lots of hard work. When I started 3.5 years ago, I didn't know a single thing. But, I had Deans books, I had my coach, and I had a goal and some serious commitment to win. Trust me, I still have some humble days, everyone does. Everything you need to get good at real estate is a skill that can be learned, EVERYTHING!
So if you are sitting on the sidelines thinking that you can't do it, let me tell you that you can do it! It is time to get off the sidelines and get in the game.
Also, I am hearing a little grumbling about me ignoring some of the superstars at the event. Let me tell you guys it wasn't intentional. This event was all about the new people. At every break I was getting bombarded by some of the new people wanting some answers to questions they had. Many times I did not get a chance to use the bathroom, but that is OK, it was worth the sacrifice to be able to help people. Trust me, I would have loved to be able to to chat more with some of the superstars--maybe next time...
You've got to find your obstacles and call them out! Unsheath the sword, and do battle with whatever it is that holds you back!
