Be the Real Estate Investor you want to be

Okay, I would first like to talk about the possibilities of one’s potential.
We can do whatever, go wherever, think whatever and become whatever we want in life.
The problem so many people face is not whether they think it can happen or not, it’s whether they think it can really happen for them. The fact that they thought enough of the situation and what can happen for others shows they believe it can happen. But there lies the problem; they do more thinking for and about others than they do for themselves. “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” We are, will and will not be the very thoughts we have, if you think you are then you are and if you think you’re not then you aren't.
There is a simple solution to not having, not becoming and not going where we want to in life, the solution is, change your thoughts and not only do things around you change but you yourself change as well. We often don’t see the world and the things around us as they really are; we often see them as we are. So if you lack the confidence, education, skills and even the attitude in life, then how you view life will be from those prospective. Responses like, “I don’t think that’s possible, I don’t know how that can be done and things will always be this way,” are far too common.
We cannot expect to do the same things over and over and look for a different result. No, that will lead to frustration, irritation, discouragement and ultimately insanity because that is exactly what it is.
So, what do we do?
First, change the way you think. (Think, because they can do it, I know I can do it too)
Change the things you say and what you listen to. (Tell yourself I’m going to get this, do that, go there and have this amount in the bank)
Change the places you go. (Drive or walk around the neighborhood you want to buy in, the car lot that has the car you want and the bank you want to do business with)
Change the people you hang around and cut off the negative people who suck the creativity out of you. (Stop telling people your ideas who are only killing your dreams, and don’t listen to people who is not doing anything with their life tell you what to do with yours)
Be the Real Estate Investor you want to be.
Think like one, talk like one, act like one and just become him or her. People will treat you the way you carry yourself.
Because I changed my sphere of influence and purposely connected with like-minded people, I am able to venture out and do what I have sat around far too long only to see other do what I should have been doing. I am now working with rent to own buyer and sellers, REO/Foreclosure properties, Lease Options and Seller Financing. I love Real Estate and I love helping people accomplish what others said could not be done.
I hope to see you on the top and here is to staying ahead of the game.
Mr. Godfrey.
