Real Estate Investing LIES Unveiled

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
forward!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 NEWSThe 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
thinking.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
like!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
Estate Investing.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’
defined.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
Money Down’…)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
estate investing job’ and you’ll learn some insider
secrets for taking that leap quickly.

The Real Estate Fisherman

Many experts agree with me that what I’m about to share with you is one of the key lessons to understand if you want to capitalize on more new real estate investing opportunities and be even more successful as a real estate investor. If you’re looking to make more money and do it by actively investing (the kinds that take “leg work”), then this article about new real estate investing opportunities, new real estate investing techniques, and new real estate investing strategies is for you.There’s tons of information out there about “how to invest in real estate”.Some good.Some bad.Some really bad.But if you want to find the best new investing opportunities, no matter what you choose to learn and apply…don’t make the mistake of going at it with a narrow mind and narrow business model.You need to keep an open mind for all possibilities if you don’t want to miss out on new real estate investing techniques.What do I mean by that?Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that ‘focus’ is not essential to your success in real estate investing. Focus is absolutely essential.I mean that you never want to limit yourself. You never want to be so focused on one part of real-estate that you miss out on the fortunes to be made by expanding your model and discovering and applying new investing strategies.All too often you will see people go out and focus on how they can make money and how they can make the most out of a deal or how they can do this or that.They stay focused on themselves.It’s NOT selfishness….just narrow-mindedness.What is even worse is that they only focus on one type of deal, they only learn how to structure a certain type of transaction. So now they are, for example, searching high and low for a seller and a buyer that fit a very narrow set of criteria- and ONLY that scenario.While they are waiting for the “right fish” all other deal scenarios they come across, those that a successful and knowledgeable investor could take and turn a profit from by solving a problem for one or two parties involved…are missed out on!That’s one reason why so many new real estate investors fail.They’re waiting to catch the fish that comes to take the only bait they have.They just don’t have that many resources at their fingertips; they just don’t know how to help people very well because they aren’t focused on how to do that – they stay focused on themselves.Many others fail because they are so focused on landing the “big one” that all the fish waiting to be snapped up never even get noticed.They never notice all the opportunities around them!If you don’t want to miss out on all the investing opportunities around you, do this: don’t focus on the fish; focus on your tackle box.What do I mean by that?You should be able to put deals together, help people and make money regardless of the situation.If you want to become more effective as an active investor, you need to focus on building your investing tackle box.With your tacklebox in place you are more prepared. Your increased awareness, expanded capabilities, and specialized problem-solving knowledge will help you begin catching all the new investing opportunities and deals that are ALREADY all around you!Because I promise you…they are!You want to be able to help each and every person you come across, not just victims of circumstance. You can help those people too and, but you need as many lures in your tackle box as possible.You want to be the person everybody comes to when they need results.When people need you, then you can really make things happen. There’s no shortcut here; you must help people and provide everybody that deals with you incredible value.When you understand the techniques and methods to help people (buyers, sellers, lenders, banks, tenants, real estate agents, the credit-challenged, homeowners in distress etc) you’ll be able to make money hand over fist.Why?Fish return to the spots where they feel comfortable and get fed- and if you haven’t noticed, they bring their friends and swim in groups.Be the fisherman who knows how to give them what they want and need, and where to find them will be easy- they will find YOU.And with your investing tacklebox, with its many baits, lures, and hooks, you’ll be ready for any scenario that comes your way.If you decide to go this route and get more actively involved investing in real estate, it’s going to take some time and energy. It’s going to take focus. But it’s going to take an open mind to new opportunities too!The good news is that the resources you need to put in your real estate investing tackle box have already been laid out for you.Check out the download now section of the Real Deal Community website for some great no cost resources to do just that…
