Fear can become your biggest asset  Reply with quote  

Fear can become your biggest asset

Fear can be a draw back when seeking an education in real estate investing but you can turn this fear into one of your biggest assets.

How many times have you wanted to get into real estate, only to have that voice in your head say:

It won't work!
It's a scam!
It cost too much!
I can't afford it!
I can't do it!

Or even worse, you shared your dream to become an investor with others and they say:

It's a scam!
I tried it and it did not work!
That's silly!
You can't do that!

It all comes back to The “Haves” and The “Have-Nots”.

The “Haves” operate with:

Desire/Drive
Commitment/Dedication
Discipline
Education
Courage
Determination
Experience
Perseverance
Organization
Optimism

The “Have-Nots” operate with:

Fear of the Unknown
Procrastination
Lack of Education
Complacency
Poor Self Control
Fear of Success
World of Scarcity
Skepticism
Low Self-Esteem
Hopelessness

All of us at some point in life have listened to voices of caution when it comes to following dreams of success. If you and others around you question what you do and thing, and you veer away from making decisions you are simply stopping yourself from reaching your fullest potential as an investor.

You are allowing this self-doubt and doubt from others to squeeze out your creative energy and inspiration that will make you a success.

So what is stopping you from making that important decision in selecting a real estate education?

FEAR.

Fear is the greatest single barrier to success as a real estate investor. The emotion of fear is intended to warn us of danger and to act as a cautionary tool. It should make us stop and think before acting. Not to squeeze out your creative energy and inspiration that will make you a success.

What fear shouldn't do is dictate the course of action you take. It shouldn't control or shape whom you are or what you want to achieve as a real estate investor.

On a conscious or subconscious level, all of us have felt the impact of fear in our lives. Whether it is the fear of making a decision, the fear of failure, a fear of what other people will think, or the fear of success - the consequences are the same.

Fear leads you to stop trying new things. Your comfort zone pulls tight around you and is rarely pushed further out than it needs to be. You feel stale, lethargic and wonder what's missing in your life. Your creative energy is replaced with a survival instinct. On a subconscious level, you start to really believe that you aren't good enough, or that there's no way possible that you can achieve becoming a real estate investor. On a conscious level your body and mind responds to being fed negative statements.

So what are you afraid of?

What stops you from taking the next step forward that will keep you on the path of achieving your goals?

It's a low level of self-confidence and self-esteem that makes you feel unhappy about yourself. Because your thoughts are based on feelings of inadequacy, you set your boundaries and standards very low and achieve little in your life.

The emotion of fear is part of being human. It's perfectly normal to experience misgivings and doubts!

Fear will never go away no matter how self-confident or successful you are!

The key to overcoming fear is to feel good about yourself and think positively. Avoid negative people and then use that same energy that fear creates and turn it into positive energy in your life.

Only then can you turn indecision and fear into power and action.

You have simply to choices to make one is to live your life in the arena of The “Haves” or The “Have-Nots”.

Will you be a success? One will never know if you do not take the risk and seek out your dreams of becoming an investor.

Will you fail possibly so but with knowledge you can limit failure.

You now have two simple choices!

Choose education
Or
Choose not to educate! You simply make no change! Life goes on as is!

you are so right though- in real estate- when you can sell all the buyers and sellers that real estate is a bad investment- then you buy like crazy - then try and sell the notion that 'real estate is a safe haven' and the best investment you can make

Wasn't that message on the poster with the kitten hanging from a line? Very Happy


I think FDR said it better with "The only think we have to fear is fear itself."
Although after reading the full speach for the first time while checking my quote, I find it somewhat ironic to be quoted on a money board considering it mostly addressed the great depression.
