Overcoming Fears in Real Estate Investing

This is for anyone who has ever had a little bit of fear keeping them from doing deals.  Fear and faith are really the opposite and I want to delve into the psychology of investing and overcoming your fears so that you can take the steps forward that you need to.  Nothing great is never easy and it always takes a leap of faith to accomplish something.

So, you investors out there who have never done a deal, this is for you.  For those of you who know you know this business and have the tools and education to do this, this will help you too.  Everybody has been there.

I sat next to a woman not too long ago at a real estate investing seminar and she told me that she had spent over $40,000 on her investing education.  She had almost every book and tape available to her.  She knew so much, she could teach ME the business!  I asked her many questions and she knew her stuff.  I asked her why she hadn’t bought a house and she told me it’s because she never had the opportunity.  I asked her why she never put an ad in the paper, and her response was, “I was afraid that someone might call”.  I said that that’s what we do, don’t let fear stop you!  I told her she could write herself a script and if they call, she could follow the script, and she might end up buying a house.  Her exact words then were, “I was afraid if I bought a house, I wouldn’t know how to get rid of it!”
