Changing the Way You Live
You are the product of your society and your upbringing. You were taught at an early age to go to school, get a good education, get a good job, work hard, get married, have a family, work hard to support your family, retire and spend some time doing what you want then die.
Real Estate Investing provides you a different way of life. It is a lot different than what you were taught and what your friends and family expect you to do. With Real Estate Investing you can get a good education (in real estate investing), become a real estate investor, work when you want and how much you want, get married, have a family, work less so you can spend more time with your family and do what you want to do, no need to retire since you are spending so little time managing your investments, enjoy life the way you want to live it, live longer and then die.
The key to making this switch is that you have to be able to convince yourself that you do not need to work 8 hours a day for a pay check. Your income is the result of your investments working hard for you and not you working hard. You will spend your days how you want with the security of knowing that you will work when you want to work, when you need another investment. The difficulty with this lifestyle is that people won’t understand what you are doing and will sometimes make you feel guilty.
If you are having fun, ignore what other people are saying and enjoy the life you have chosen.
