Success Takes Time… So Why Not Start Now

I’ll be honest I stole this title from another blog post (relating to a different industry), but I think it is very applicable to real estate investing.  Another quote I often think of is: “When is the best time to start? Five years ago, but that’s too late, so why not now.”

Most of people I respect most in this business are not people I would consider to have far superior intelligence compared to the average person.  They have just found a way to consistently set goals, pass the obstacles in front of them and start accomplishing tasks one simple step at a time. Before long they got miles ahead of everyone else.

Sit down and make a list of all the things holding you back from getting started and an associated action to accomplish them and before you know it you will be moving forward.

  1. Nice Steve – Short and to the point!

    I agree with you too many people love to read books, blogs and go to clubs, but from I can tell there’s only about 20% of them actually doing something about their goals.

    Do you agree?

    I think it’s less, especially if you go to some of the sales-pitch clubs. 95% dreamers… 5% action takers.

    Guilty….I read all the books, then spent a few years dreaming about the good stuff and pontificating about all the negatives before I got started. I quit kicking myself for not starting earlier a while back…just focused forward from here.

    It is frustrating to mentor someone, but you can tell they just won’t get out there and do it.

    Hi Steve,

    Do you know of an investor friendly title company in Los Angeles? Im moving there from San Diego and trying to find a title company that is reliable, capable of assignments/double escrow/transactional funding, and has investor pricing.

    Thanks
