don’t have time to analyze a bunch of properties, I’m just too busy…”. Do you really lack the time or maybe you are just not willing to make time?
How about the money for down payment, repairs, etc. That loser inside of you says “You don’t have enough money!” but have you really tried to manage your money and see where all your money is going? Have you really taken steps to ensure that you are consistently building your financial freedom account (FFA) along with the other “money jars” needed to effectively manage your money?
You want to start to do something worthwhile but then again, that loser inside of you says “Stop… let’s wait until the timing is just right” and all that crap. It’s just like waiting for all the stop lights on the road to turn green before starting to move. Good luck!
That voice of the loser inside may also say “Why should you even bother doing something that’s way out of your comfort zone…” and instead convinces you to just endure a comfortable life which is often synonymous to a tolerable but often meaningless existence. Maybe it’s time you realized that no one became ultra successful by living a comfortable life. If that was true then those millions of people who do nothing but watch TV all day would have become rich and successful by now. Ouch!
Focus on the winner inside of you!
Maybe we should all stop listening to the loser inside of us that never runs out of excuses and holds us back from becoming successful real estate investors! Don’t you think it’s about time that we focused on listening to the voice inside of us who actually says how we can we make things work, the winner inside of us?
It’s that winner inside of us that would realize that one needs to make time instead of complaining that we don’t have enough time for real estate investing. The winner inside of us discerns what things are truly important and worth doing and helps us find the time we need no matter how “busy” we are and then this allows us to consistently look at properties and analyze them as it would really take about a hundred properties before finding that one gem of a deal.
It’s also that winner inside of us that somehow finds creative ways of financing those great real estate deals that we may find even if the loser inside us says we don’t have enough money.
Lastly, that same winner inside of us will also coax us out of our comfort zones and make things happen to achieve financial freedom in spite of a little discomfort that we may experience along the way.
No more excuses please!
