I was told my real estate investment company wasn't going to work
It's not going to work.
Most new businesses fail within 3 years.
Play it safe and get a "real" job, real estate is too uncertain for you to make a "real" living.
You don't have any money, connections, or resources -- there is no way you will be able to compete with the "big boys" that have deep pockets.
You look too young and no one will take you seriously.
What you are trying to do is not possible.
You can't flip houses with no money down.
You can follow your dreams someday, but right now you need to buckle down and be responsible.
You're totally screwed if this doesn't work out.
THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS MY CLOSEST FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS SAID TO ME WHEN I FIRST STARTED MY REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT COMPANY 14 years ago.
That company that my own friends and family doubted, has spawned into three other successful companies.
Now, I have the privilege in saying:
1) I employ over 60 people.
2) My dad works for me.
3) I have complete time and freedom to do what I want.
4) I am financially independent.
5) I take two months of vacation each year to the best resorts on the planet.
6) I hang around millionaires, billionaires, movie stars, and other successful people of my choosing.
7) I help others break free from the stories society has pounded down their throats since they were born.
Why did I want to share this message with you?
NEVER let anyone label you or convince you that your dreams are too far-fetched.
Use their doubts as motivation to prove them all wrong. Quietly buckle down and work relentlessly towards your goals.
Action is the only currency that produces results in business.
Eliminate your excuses, wage war on your fears and crush mediocrity with your boldness. Now, is the time to create your legacy through bold and decisive action.
Remember this, never judge your progress, self-worth, or happiness by comparing yourself to others. In fact, you should never worry about what "other" people are doing (or saying). Focus on becoming the best version of yourself and you will naturally evolve towards greatness.
What I want you to get out of this is that you are not alone.
My main goal in life is to be a person that is constantly moving and progressing forward. Just because someone else says "it can't be done" doesn't mean you can't do it.
Make everyday a new day filled with new opportunities and potential. So, together let's smile big, dream big, and kick some (you know what) because today could be the day that changes everything for ourselves and our families.
Take care. Comb you hair.
