I have always loved the quote from Thomas Jefferson, ” I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have”. We can make our own luck by getting out there and working our tail off. As my headline states, fortune does favour the brave. Those who are brave enough to make the calls, to do the speeches, attend the meetings, go to the classes, read the books and just do the work.
Nothing bothers me more than when someone says that so and so is lucky or smart, without acknowledging how hard they worked to get to where they are. People don’t see all the calls or training that came before the big sale or the olympic medal, they only see the end result.
So instead of being jealous or envious of your friend or neighbour who just purchased their 3rd rental property, learn from their example instead. Read the books, go to the seminars and manage your finances to it can be you too someday soon. Success leaves clues, find what worked for them and put in the work so you can achieve it too.
“Opportunity is missed by out people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas A Edison
Today I am thankful for the inspiration I receive from the books i’ve read, the feeling of accomplishment of pushing myself through a hard workout and I am thankful for the fact that the harder I work the luckier I get.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
