Start Messy. Start Today…
Quick reminder, Sometimes when you start, it isn’t going to be pretty.
You can’t master something by standing on the sidelines.
Perhaps you need to ‘jump into the pool’ and figure it out along the way. I remember writing my first offer. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Full disclosure: I had no idea what I was doing when writing that first offer.
I was terrified but put on a brave face. Everything was wonderful, but deep down, I was very nervous.
I was like the proverbial duck 🦆 on the water; everything calm and relaxed on the top side and paddling like crazy under the water.
At this point in my Real Estate investing career, I had never owned a property. Heck, I had never even written an offer.
I was renting a basement suite with a roommate and had only listened to one Real Estate Investing home study program on cassette tape (does anyone remember those?).
When writing my first offer, my hand shook so badly that I could barely read what I wrote and legibly make out my signature.
I never slept a wink that night. 👀
My heartburn felt like a three-alarm fire 🔥.
What did I just do? Who am I to be writing offers and buying Real Estate?
I had every reason in the world NOT to write that offer.Many people told me it was too risky, the outcome uncertain, and the market was in turmoil.
I stepped up to the plate, took a mighty swing and danced 🕺 with the fear.
Even though I felt the fear … I still wrote the offer.
And you know what, after writing that offer, I didn’t instantly explode 💣.
How did I manage to write that first offer?
- Guidance from someone who’s been there before
- A community backing me
- A plan (sort of)
- And most importantly, a willingness to do whatever it takes to make it work
Now fast forward more than 20+ years, I’ve written and helped coach Real Estate investors through the process of writing multiple hundreds of offers.
Something that once was terrifying gave me heartburn, and was a confusing & messy process is now as ‘Easy as a Sunday Morning’ 🎵.
What’s something you have been putting off doing, something that’s a messy process and that scares the daylights out of you?
Just imagine how things will look in twelve months if you dance 💃 with the fear, embrace the work, do something challenging and take action today.
As I see it, you have two options:
Option 1– you could do absolutely nothing, stay exactly where you are right now, accept that your current circumstances are as good as it gets and just suck it up
Option 2– you could dive in with both feet, start messy, write some offers and start. You can commit and give this Real Estate thing your best effort. Find a community, Support & Guidance and work at it daily alongside what you’re doing right now and see how far you go.
The choice is yours…
