Sacrifice isn't just required in real estate for success, its required in EVERYTHING! Success isn't cheap. Although most want success for free. Success isn't free, success isn't even available for half price, you half to to pay full price for success. I was blessed to figure this out at a very young age. I wasn't born good at anything. I wasn't a natural athlete, I wasn't very smart (I couldn't even read normally), and I had no God given talents-except one thing-an unquenchable desire to succeed. Here is the scenario:
Most people don't like the struggle part. They would rather just have a DREAM, snap their fingers, and get to taste victory. Well, the STRUGGLE, is the most important part. That's the way GOD intended it. It's the STRUGGLE that forges your character, it's the struggle that gives you strength, it's the struggle that CHANGES you. You see, you can't take your crappy old self into a bright new future, it just doesn't work. You have to BECOME. The true destination is the stuggling process. The only reason the victory is important is to help motivate you to make it through the struggle. Most people think that when an Olympic athlete shows up to compete that "the best person that day will win". That is actually a false idea. The competition was won in the many months and years prior to that day. The blood, the sweat, the tears were already shedd. The competiton starts every morning for olympic athletes and YOU. What are you going to do today? What more can you do today that you couldn't do yesterday? Maybe yesterday was painful and you got knocked down? So what?!!! Get back up, dust yourself off, and get back to business! Aren't you tired of being broke? Aren't you tired of people getting the best of you? Aren't you tired of someone telling you what to do, where to live, and what your schedule is? You think you're doing pretty good? Well, there is a lot more out there!!! Common! FIND THE TREASURE!!! GO GET IT DONE!!!
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!
