I admit it, with all the negative coverage on the state of real estate investment today, looking at this investment opportunity can scare you. You might even view a real estate investment as something too risky to take. However, we take risks every day; most of which we do not even realize. Think about it, when we get in our vehicles each morning and maneuver along the city streets on our way to work, we are taking a risk.
Your First Real Estate Investment
Each time we hurry to the airport, settle in and buckle our seat belts, anticipating our long-awaited and well-deserved family vacation, we are taking a risk. The bottom line is we place our safety, well-being, even our futures in the hands of others every day. Don’t you realize that it’s time for you to take the risk so you can control your financial future? You can start by cashing in on foreclosures TODAY!
There are a few reasons why people aren’t interested in real estate investment, the greatest of which is fear. There is an acronym for FEAR that I love – False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, and even fear of success can stand in the kind of life that you have always dreamed of. The only solution to fear is facing it head on. When I first told my family about my plans of retiring from Corporate America to become an entrepreneur, they thought I was crazy.
I am not surprised by their reaction at all because we are taught to obtain the American dream, get a college education and work for 30 years! However, I realized at age 24 that I was never going to become a millionaire working for somebody else, so I faced my fear of the unknown, took a huge leap of faith and entered the real estate investment arena.
I cannot deny the fact that I used to fear failure too. I have been accustomed to accomplishing my goals and I don’t see myself failing in anything, which has been my very drive to become excellent in real estate investment. Becoming a successful real estate investor meant surrounding myself with people who have already established their names in this industry. I immersed myself in research and dispelled all the myths about real estate investment to become the real estate investor that I imagined being. I was confident because I am aware of the plethora of information and resources available to make me succeed in my real estate investment.
There are plenty of things that I learned while I am working on becoming one of the best real estate investors in the country. Do not buy into negativity, horror stories, and the endless “what ifs” of real estate investing. Sure, I made costly mistakes, but I saw them as lessons to be learned. With enough time, I was able to perfect the craft of buying, fixing and selling properties like a true rockstar real estate investor!
Surprisingly, there are also people who fear success. Perhaps they cannot see themselves carrying the weight of responsibilities that entail being successful. I find this the weirdest form of fear. How could anyone resist success if it meant more time for yourself, family and relatives, and more control over your financial resources? The secret to not getting too overwhelmed with success is time and financial management. Sure, there may be a saying that when you are up, there’s no other way but down, but why think about plummeting when you can stay on top forever?
A real estate investment proves to be something where you can be successful at. Even businessmen from Hong Kong, Australia, United Kingdom and other parts of the globe are taking advantage of foreclosures in the U.S., so why watch them monopolize the real estate industry of your own country? Don’t wait for the economy to fully recover before you take a slice of the real estate investment pie. I have sold over 500 properties and made about $50 million gross sales from it. This only goes to show how money-spinning of a market a real estate investment is.
