Real Estate Investment, Like Any Other Business, Requires Motivation, Determination and a Positive Attitude
You’ve taken the classes, the webinars and read the books. You’ve even done a couple of deals and maybe even have some rental properties producing steady income for you. Nonetheless you’re feeling stuck. Fear and negativity are bogging you down because you’ve been out there in the trenches and, these days, those properties that are available are moving really fast. It’s become, of late, a bit more challenging than it used to be to find that sweet deal that you can get down on for very little cash.
Do not become disheartened!
Those deals are still out there and with a little bit of positive thinking as well as perseverance and just good ol’ garden variety sheer will to succeed, you will do just that.
Here are some of my favorite ways to stay motivated, inspired and positive; ways that you can succeed in manifesting momentum in your real estate investment business.
Read or Listen to Inspirational Books
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t- You’re right!” – Henry Ford.
One of my favorite books of all time is Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill. A motivational personal development self-help book written in 1937, Think and Grow Rich was inspired by one of the most successful businessmen in American history, Andrew Carnegie. Think and Grow Rich has been touted by some of the worlds most successful and influential business people and thought leaders, over the decades, as an invaluable tool for personal and financial achievement.
Join a Real Estate Investment Club
Real estate investment clubs are local groups that form to enable real estate investors, as well as other professionals like marketers, lawyers, brokers, contractors, accountants and appraisers to get together for learning and networking. Sometimes these clubs are designed to sell systems, products, real estate training or coaching, which is great too as all of these things are extremely valuable to your business. The main thing, though, is that joining an investment club will get you talking with other real estate investors and this can not only be beneficial in terms of networking for services and deals, but will keep you motivated.
Surround Yourself With Success
When you surround yourself with other successful real estate business entrepreneurs and a good coach or mentor, you can’t help but stay inspired and motivated. Their enthusiasm and encouragement will help keep you excited and give you that push you need when perseverance seems a struggle. There is nothing like holding yourself accountable to yourself and others for reaching goals and making the effort needed to succeed. If you have not thought about getting a coach, you should definitely look into it. You can’t afford not to; believe me.
