No matter what happens do not pack up your bags and leave the room.
What do I mean by that?
Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you wanted to pack up everything and just leave? Have you ever wanted to just quit what you were doing because you felt that you were not good enough or not smart enough? Have people told you that you should do something else because what you just did stunk up the room?
- Don’t listen to them.
- Don’t listen to the naysayers.
- Don’t listen to people who are not where you want to be.
Love Yourself No Matter What!
People are wanting to learn how to be better and how to grow into who they want to be. Everyone wants to be something or somebody and they yearn for someone to help them get there. There is an abundance of information in the newspapers, on the television, on the internet and everywhere you look and everywhere you go, but there is not an abundance of good teachers and mentors to truly help you get to where you want to go. So why can’t you be the person that they are searching for? I believe in you and if you love what you are doing and believe that is the right thing and you are in 100 %, you may be the answer that many have been searching for.
When you believe in yourself and go All in on what it is you believe is the right thing to do, people will want to be part of what it is you are doing. There is a problem with our society that I see everywhere I go and I am sure you have seen it as well. You see many different ideas in society of what they believe is the best path to success.
- Go to college and get an education.
- Go to trade school.
- Join the military.
No matter who you talk to they all have their opinion of what the best path is for you to take to have success in your life. However, how many of them are truly “All In” 100% in whatever they are doing and are these people the ones that you want to learn from and follow into battle?
Knowing that this advice is everywhere and there is no shortage of people sharing with you what is best for you so, who are you taking your advice from? Are your advisors you family and friends who have no idea what it is you are talking about in regards to what you are trying to achieve in life? If that is the case, I have been there and I understand what you are going through.
Many years ago I had a great job as a production analyst with an oil company. At the time I had been married for a few years and my wife had just given birth to our 2nd child two weeks earlier. Out of nowhere the company decided to lay off two of the higher paid employees and I was one of them. The normal thing to do in that type of situation is to go out and get a job to have that financial security. Everyone expected me to go out and get a job, however in that moment, I thought to myself, I know who I am and I know whose I am and know that God has a plan for my life, so getting a job did not feel like it was a part of my future.
I had been investing in real estate part time for the previous 4 years and I really wanted to do it full time, so I told everyone in my family circle that I did not want to get a job and I felt that it was time for me to go full time into the world of being a real estate investor. Well you can expect what happened next. Almost everyone said the same thing…what are you thinking? You have a wife & 4 kids…you need to get a job? You need security. You need to be a responsible husband. You need to be a responsible parent.
Wow. Even my family was against me doing something that I believed was the right thing to do. They wanted what was best for me, but they had no idea about what I did, the desire I had to make it a full time living and my never give up attitude. The only person who believed in me was my wife. It was an incredible feeling when I told her that not only did I want to do this full time, but I was not going to fail and I was going to make it happen no matter what, but I needed her to believe in me 100%. She said she believed in me and reiterated back to me what I tell everyone almost everyday….make it happen.
So I went All In and here we are 16 years later and we are a happy family and even though I have been part of hundreds of real estate transactions, I feel I am just getting started as a real estate investor and educator.
