Entrepreneurs and real estate investors seek a way out of the so-called “Great Recession” that continues to wreak havoc on the lives of individuals and families throughout the country.
As unemployment rates remain high and financial stresses stack up, they can trigger several other areas of challenge in many people’s lives– from physical to emotional, or a combination. Unfortunately, many people compound their small issues, turning them into much larger issues for their own lives and that of their families, by caving into the victim mentality.
Simply put, some people fail to realize that they are capable of attaining success. They think of success as something that other people can achieve, but not them. Setbacks are to be expected on the path to achievement though. Just ask any successful person how they attained their success. It is unlikely that hard work was not a factor in their success plan, or that they did not undergo a period or two of trial and error along the way.
Unfortunately, some people neglect to see that one of the biggest keys to achieving success is the ability to get past failure. What do we mean by that? Pick yourself up and brush yourself off when you fall, rather than allowing yourself to stay down and submit to a sense of defeat.
Recently Jim Piccolo, a Real Estate Worldwide, Inc. Founders Advisory Board Member, opened up to attendees at the REWW two-day Intensive event held in Scottsdale, Arizona, to share his personal story of how “life is full of surprises.” Piccolo not only spoke, he showed photos and videos of some of the highs and lows of his life. You are probably wondering why someone would share such personal information with a group of strangers? As Piccolo explained, he felt it necessary for others to hear about his past struggles and successes in order to better understand him and the present opportunity available through Real Estate Worldwide. You see, although Piccolo amassed $40 million worth of real estate, had the chance to travel the world, build his dream home for friends and family to enjoy, and more, his world changed dramatically “overnight” with the demise of the market in 2008/2009. This huge blow cost him nearly everything – including his health.
What made the difference for turning Piccolo’s life around? His family, his “never, ever, ever give up” mantra, his ability to recognize that “life is full of surprises” and act on opportunities. These are some of the many reasons why he continues to persevere as an entrepreneur, real estate investor, friend, husband, and father. It’s also why he’s made it his mission to study with great mentors like Kent Clothier, a partner of MemphisInvest.com, and spread the proven real estate investment methods and tools utilized by MemphisInvest.com to create tremendous success in any market. Jim Piccolo is helping lead the way out and up for fellow entrepreneurs and real estate investors by sharing knowledge, positive energy, systems and tools to help them capture their life’s dreams and rebuild America.
