Let’s get REAL about something – and quelch the LIES you have been told about Real Estate Investing!
What I am going to reveal to you are some basic
truths about Real Estate investing – truths that may
totally affect the Real Estate investments you have
now – and certainly I intend to modify the way you
do Real Estate investing in the future.
Let’s get right to it – and into the heart of the real
estate investing issue.
You have been programmed all your life to become
what you are today – from school, friends, relatives
and, yes, your parents.
Recent studies show that you are who you are now,
more from what you learned prior to age 8 than in
anything else you have learned since.
Now, that may surprise you, but it is true that what
you learned at the earliest ages affects the way you
make Real Estate investments today, and the type
of Real Estate investing success you will have going
Yes, that’s a bit shocking.
You see, if you grew up in an environment where
you heard things like
“We can’t afford it”, “Be sure
you have saved enough and have the cash to buy it”
(i.e., never use credit), or numerous other phrases
that you now hear yourself saying (you know what
I’m talking about – those times you catch yourself
“becoming your parents”), it is because of your
early programming (from 0-8 years) and what you
were told about money, success, and life in general.
That is controlling your current income – and your
success – or lack of it…
The things you were told at that early, most
influential age, are now creeping out and affecting
how successful you are in business, in life and yes,
in your Real Estate investing.
THERE IS GOOD NEWS
The greatest thing about this fact – as horrible as it
seems – is that you can change the ‘programming’ –
you have the power to do it!
You can reprogram yourself in any way you want –
have anything you want – do anything you want.
All it takes is simply to ‘reinstall’ the right kind of
And, it is easier than you might think!
One of the best ways to do that is to get a CD audio
set from someone you like to listen to – someone
that thinks positively and speaks of the life you want
to live. Many home study courses are available (yes,
including mine) that are designed to inspire and
motivate you, while they teach you the methods and
secrets of real estate investing.
Purchase one – listen to it, over and over – until you
hear yourself speaking that way, too.
You see, we are all simply creatures of habit and
environment – if we allow junk to get into our heads,
all we will ever say is junk coming out.
If all you listen to is the bad stuff in life (like the TV
news, most ‘talk radio’ shows, those TV ‘real life’
shows that end up in fights – you know the ones.,
and even violent movies where the language is
nothing you’d ever expect to hear from your own
lips.), that is exactly what you will wind up sounding
It is true – ‘you are what you eat’ – and that counts
just as much for what you put in your ears as it does
for what you put in your mouth!
If you spend your time around ‘bar people’, you’ll
speak and act like them. Not that there’s anything
wrong with that, as long as you made a conscious
thought that it is what you want, but I think you’d
be much more successful at Real Estate investing if
you were listening to a successful person teaching
you about Real Estate Investing!
Now, let’s get right to the point about the various
methods and concepts you have learned about Real
You may call yourself a ‘real estate investing expert’,
but if you have to get up every morning and wonder
where your next check is coming from, you aren’t
making real estate investments, you are being
employed in a Real Estate Investing JOB!
Yes, that’s a hard-hitting statement.
You see, I want you to ‘get real’ with yourself and
simply admit it – Real Estate investing is when you
put money into a Real Estate investment and then
get some money out – ‘real estate investing’
Yet, it seems that most people I meet want to
attend my real estate training or purchase my real
estate courses that have to do with ‘No Money
Down’ (NMD) real estate investing.
Now, that kind of talk just proves the point – you can
reprogram yourself to speak a different language –
even if it doesn’t make sense!
A bunch of ‘gurus’ have told you over and over again
that ‘No Money Down’ is real estate investing – even
though you learned at an early age that ‘invest’
means to put money into something and get money
out (see http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=invest for other definitions – none of them say ‘No
Now, it’s not that ‘NMD Real Estate investing’ is all
bad – heck, my students and I make several
thousand dollars from these types of ‘Real Estate
investing’ transactions every year, too.
Just don’t lie to yourself and say they are ‘real
estate investments’, we know very clearly that these
are simply ‘earned income’ from one portion of your
real estate investing business – the real estate ‘job’
portion – earned while in transition from your
‘corporate job’ to your ‘real estate investing job’ and
on the road to true Real Estate Investing.
In other real estate investing articles, I cover some
of the methods and techniques you, too, can explore
while moving from your ‘corporate job’ to your ‘real
