I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years and have seen it firsthand. People are always waiting for the perfect time to act whether it’s buyers, sellers, realtor, lenders, etc. Most people won’t do anything unless they are “sure” it is the perfect time. Well, we never know when the “perfect” time is at anything in life until after the “perfect” time has passed us by and we see it in our rear view mirror. And those who are always waiting, trying to time the perfect moment, do just that – they wait and they wait and they wait. They sit on the sidelines watching and never get in the game. Why is that? Why are most people spectators? Because when we go for it and get in the game there is always risk no matter what it is. To be successful we have to be “Players” not spectators. We cannot be paralyzed by fear. Then once we jump in we have to go for it 100% or we are going to get hurt. It is like playing sports. The person who usually gets hurt is the person who is not 100% committed, the person who is timid or the indecisive one. Conversely, the people who are fired up and go for it 100% usually are the ones inflicting the pain..excelling. It does not matter whether it is football, soccer, snowboarding, investing, your job…we have to give it 100%…no, we need to give it 110%.Remember, success always involves risk. We must take a chance by investing our time, money, and effort. It pays to be thoughtful and deliberate in our analysis of opportunities, but we cannot let fear hold us back. Because we have worked hard to develop those things we must risk, it is natural for us to place a high value on them. But what use are they if we do not put them to use? We will recognize opportunity only to the extent that we are willing to consider risking our time, money, and effort. Being confident gives us the courage to face risk and act when opportunity arises. No one on earth is going to force success upon us; we will find it only to the degree that we actively seek it out and ACT ON IT!!!!! Remember, when everyone you know is doing, saying and feeling one thing, the right answer is probably to do exactly the opposite.Have a powerful week and don’t be paralyzed by fear. That is what the masses are doing.
