Are You Committed?
Hey, I have an important question to ask you.
Are you ready for it?
Ok, here goes…
Are you really committed to succeeding?
I mean, no matter what kind of investing you're trying to do—wholesaling, fix-and-flip, rentals, whatever…
…are you really committed?
Yes or no.
In my humble (but accurate) view, for most wannabe investors today the answer is a resounding NO.
They hope to be successful. They wish for success. But when push comes to shove, they aren't really willing to take the necessary actions to bring about success.
Want to know what happens next?
[enter blaming & complaining]
Screw that. How about put on your ‘big boy' pants?
Instead, try this:
- Make a solid commitment today.
- Draw a hard line in the sand.
- And don't take no for an answer.
Get clear and define exactly what “success” looks like for your personal real estate endeavors. For some, it's just flip a house a month. Others want to own a hundred rentals. Others want to net at least six figures a year rehabbing houses.
Whatever it is for you, define it.
Then make a clear, certain decision that, come hell or high water, you will be successful in achieving that.
No matter how hard, no matter how long it takes.
A Japanese proverb I heard says it all…
“Fall seven times and stand up eight.”
When you get knocked down by the inevitable obstacle…
Get. Back. Up.
What matters isn't the bad thing that happened, what matters is how you respond to it. Like my boy Justin shared with you recently, everyone has problems—champions embrace them.
So, what's your answer?
Yes or no.
Are you committed enough to make your real estate dreams a reality?
I truly hope so. You deserve it.
Talk to me in the comments below and tell me how this hits ya? I'd love to hear from you.
Please and thank you. 🙂
Thank you for the encouragement and kick in the pants to get me going. I kinda felt that I would be taking advantage of homeowners, so have held back. I am working on my first fix and flip. I plan to fix and hold for passive income. This should get my independent and out the rat race for good. I am an inventor by trade and so naturally am applying my craft to this fix and flip. I think I’ve stumbled onto a model for fix and flipping that can replicate on other fix and flips. I believe, this model maximizes value in terms of security from natural disasters, and economic disasters. It is unheard of value, for very little cost. It all has to do with design, both of physical structure and contract structure. It is the most value I can think of to bless my fellow man. Looking forward to doing this. God bless and thanks for the encouragement!
Codes won’t allow for the building I was planning. What I am not committed to is taking advantage of people when they are down. I would rather be poor for the rest of my life. I don’t want to do that.
Hi JP …yup…you bet, Im committed, I think Cam said that a caveman can do a wholesale deal with the foundation you guys have laid…keep up the good work.
Yes, I’m committed. I’ve run into a few wrinkles during my other endeavors (I should have known better) once those are cleared up, I’ll be on way way to success!
I am committed in fact I have a house that I want to wholesale but don’t have funds. I want to renew my transactional program.
Yes..I’m committed. Im in multiple processes. Everything has come together today. Became ill in February, the cold in the building were I work. Was off a month. Just today got a new job, paying me double what I was making. Been searching and advertising for my business as much as possible. The warmer weather should bring better opportunities for me.
I find myself looking at all the houses I see in my travels. It’s addictive. I haven’t done my first flip. I’ve been studying the videos and asking questions. I want to get it right the first time
Yes, I do. At this moment, I am committed to start wholesaling only.
YES CANT QUIT HANGING TO THE END
Yes Patrick this was a good email for me thanks for reaching out. I am 100% committed and won’t take no for an answer.
I am very committed to make the Real Estate business a reality for me and my family. I want to buy a home for us and also be financially independent to go on a much needed vacation
Yes I am VERY dedicated and I am still pushing I found the property but finding a buyer is my problem, (If you can assist me that would be great)
I love the webinars with Cam he gave so many great nugget that I have put into work and yes his training worked 100% I found the property. Cam spoke of his network to be able to find buyers but it not affordable for newcomer to purchase. I have a very BIG Plan that I want to put in place so Flipping House is want I need to do at this time.
Thank you so much this really hit home for me. I was just thinking of giving up and then I read this message. I’m really grateful for the time you’ve spent to get this message to me when you did this was right on time and I commit today!
I’ve been committed for awhile
I am committed to learning and functioning in real estate. I have been distracted because of some issues going on, but I will get focused.
To be honest I’ve never done anything remotely like this and I was a bit discouraged by my lack of knowledge and drifted away from it. Until I read this message in the form of a vital question, that’s when I realized in my fear of failure I wasn’t even going to try, but that’s the only failure there is to try and not succeed isn’t a failure it’s a lesson well learned, but to not try at all is the only true failure there is
I am committed to this program to study an duplicate what I have learned It is a Wonderful
Way to get my life back
I am committed to making this a real business. I’ve invested so much so far on learning & now it is time to see a return. I do worry about money but have to find a way to get deals done. I’m trying to stay positive and remove the fear.
Patrick, I am a retired Iraq Veteran. I am a mature. I have a wife, daughter and granddaughters.
I have my eye on the target ( success). I am 100% committed.
YES; I’ve committed almost a decade to learning/understanding the industry as a whole. even toyed around with the idea of just getting on SSI/SSDI for stability and continue learning as a hobby, and if I really wanted to do this as my Legacy; the original inquiry and want was tied to a decade of the grind and 7 year relationship; ironically that taught me real commitment, that ended horribly.. Anyhow I am fully committed to this My Legacy, and my soon to be husband Felix Jackson, we’re committed to This Legacy, My Legacy; Our Legacy being successful no matter what
Yes, I am committed to keep pushing to make my Real estate dream a reality. I am willing to sacrifice my young and fun times early for my future success. I’ve been working and learning lots in the electrical field for some time now and have been observing the process of building New construction homes and several Remodels. I’m pretty knowledgeable in the Electrical industry and have some insights on the details of improving a home to Increase the ARV. I am extremely committed and determined to establish my fix and flip Biz and soon Build homes from foundation to finish by building a strong Team!
yes I’M Committed although I don’ t know what I’M doing, I keep going over material which is very helpful ,I have questions and. i may have 2 potential clients. Still committed, thanks for email
Hi Patrick, I am excited about real-estate investing! This is something I’ve always wanted to do. But didn’t know how or where to start. I am scared, but tired of where I am in life and I do want better for my self and family. So I am willing and ready to make a change for the better!
Some years ago, I advertised for what are commonly referred to as distressed properties. two individuals called; one accepted my offer. Two months later, the deal fell through since the seller didn’t want to wait. I couldn’t come up with the Leasing Fee and my market is very slow to this day. To say I was disappointed would be a misnomer. I was crushed!
Lessons I learned from that experience taught me to learn to save money constructively. To also have my credit established to a highest score. If one has money in the bank and owns properties at the same time, other people’s money would be available unsolicited cheaply! Since those days, I’ve been dealing with Real Estate Investing with guarded optimism. Real Estate Investing may be considered simple, but, it’s not easy.
Yes I am committed, I read my goals daily out loud and have been looking at houses daily, but not have found one that was completely vacant. I have been reaching out to acquaintances in the area and sharing the info with them so they may give me a hand with this because I know this is a great market around where I live, which is Cleveland, Helen Georgia area….
Hey Patrick, thanks for the email…. I have been plugging away on a daily basis asking around to different people in the area who would give me a hand with this. I happen to know that in this area that I live which is Cleveland Georgia and surrounding areas of Helen, Gainesville and sautee a great areas for this type of thing, as I stated I look at houses on a daily basis, hoping to find one that I can do my first deal with. So far I have been experiencing houses that are not vacant, but I understand it’s only updated every few months, I will not give up. The answer is yes I am committed, I read my goals daily out loud and I have a photo of my church on the dashboard of my car so I look at that daily because we are wanting to build a much bigger sanctuary, I am looking to donate to this cause as I progress….
I’m committed to find a way to do this with as little funds out of my pocket as I can. It seems like everyday that passes by IF I don’t spend money I won’t make money.
I’m committed to finding that without spending the money I have what will be needed to have EMD, etc. and there are ways to find motivated sellers without a monthly subscription to do it.
Great advice! Needed that push!
I’m 100% commited to making my real estate career up and running,I’ve got the scars to show how much time i”ve spent beating my head against the wall, figuratively. At this point, money is my biggest obstacle. Trying to work around that at the moment, and it’s wrecking me but, i’m still here plugging away. A lot of people around me would tell you how stupid I am in a second, but i know I’m not and I don’t really care what anybody has to say but I have heard enoughof it at this point to know it’s unnerving to say the least especially when nit comes from someone close to you. However i know they can see the look on my when i’m listening to them tell me what makes me so foolish, i guess they can’t figure out that the whole time they’re preaching their word , to me I’m thinking you better hold that tongue because these stupid shoes you have me wearing are going to be worn out when the stupid shoes are on the stupid feet they should’ve been on the whole time. I need one of those shut up checks pretty quick so I don’t have to hear it anymore because its gone from where I could just dismiss it to really an insult to my intelligence mostly from people who know me better than that and its just rude, and the best cure for a rude mouth is the bitter taste of a shut up check. I don’t think they can make enough mouthwash to get that taste out. there’s a cheap joke in there for JP to use when he interviews Cam Dunlop next. For example he could say “hey Cam how do you get the taste of a shut up check out of your mouth?” the response will be how? then JP can say ” you don’t” and do the drop the mic thing. There you go, the 1st one is always free.
3 hospital stays over 3 months this year. Hemiglobin is 6 a healthy person is 14. Wife wants a divorce. As soon as I settle in a new home I will be ready.
Thanks for the inspiration, that always helps. Hustling along but marketing for me is the biggest challenge. Still training, still learning though.
Thanks this really hit me i am committed but i need. Help on where to begin especially when you have no money
Thanks Man. This really means a lot to me. I really want to do this for my family. I’m fighting just need some help in this business.
Thanks again you really motivates me.
No quitting here I am just trying to get a few things together I’m getting ready to sign up for more services thank you
I am committed. I want to do this for my daughters. I want to see myself succeed at doing this for them.
Thanks for the insperaction,! Needed that !
Man I really like how you guys understand the importance of motivation and preaching not giving up it really makes a huge difference and also knowing that it will take alot and holding ppl accountable to acheive their dreams. BIG SALUTE
I have been a real estate agent and loan origination consultant for more than 20 years and I have purchased many houses and I have repaired them and sold them. I am no longer a loan originator, because I didn’t renew the license when the market crashed a few years ago. I am very committed to continuing my real estate buying and selling activities. And I’m willing to help those who don’t know where to start.
I am Committed. This is the only thing I can see to retire from my job plus I wanted to do real estate investing right now trying to find sellers and Buyers get contracts sold and make my commissions to start saving up for retirement. And get out of this job I hate!
..Most definitely committed.. I’ve done a deal with Ford Motors.. That turned the final project into a truck-stop in California.. I think with your systems in place.. I can do more deals..
Yes I am committed . Not as much as I should be. I am distracted easily I don’t know why. I must get over it and if I do it will be great. I have been involved for many years in this business and gain knowledge but never accomplish any flip. As a matter of fact i think with a mentor I would be good can you referrer me one because I have this sensational software that filter out to just what i want and I want to take full at vantage of it. Thanks
A lot of words. Now we have to put a date on it and go to work! God has given me a second chance and now I have to succeed. I am committed.
I am out here. REI a people please get in contact with me I’ll show you bet your bottom dollar I am ready I have drawn a line in the sand timing is everything.
Yes I’m committed. I just want to get this right, I need to for my family
I am committed to the training and taking calculated risks to get my business moving in the right direction. I’m not looking for perfection, just for what works. I’m confident this program and this team will get me there. I plan to wholesale, then buy and hold some multi-family and may even do some rehabs once established.
I’m committed to being suçcessful but most importantly, I’m committed to the process and doing whatever it takes. I start my day daily with action in the forefront of my mind. I handled the business aspect of forming my company and niw I spend a couple of hours daily between educating myself, driving for dollars, cold calling and initiating mail campaigns. FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
I’m committed and failure is not an option. Every day I’ll chip away at real estate till I own real estate.
Yes, I’m committed, but I need your help to push my brain to working with you and be in my future retirement plan. Let’s go and make some life style change forevermore.
I feel the same way of committing to this the same way I decided to divorce. No one can hold me back but me. Staying in a status quo for me right now is like settling for an unfulfilling life. No more excuses! You do not enter into a marriage with the expectation of failing. So why would I enter a passion for success to deter me if I put my best into it expecting success? Even if I fall short, I can try, try, try again till I get it right! Thank you so much, I needed that!
At 54 and no retirement plan. I’m ALL IN. Have to be.
Yes, I am committed, but still try to find out how the system works.
My moderated comment is “I am totally and urgently committed to any process that will allow me to begin flipping in a vibrant market, in Philadelphia, PA”
I have been in several trainings and have a significant Business Plan for doing rehabbing in Philadelphia. I made a big mistake and tried to jump into rehabbing without the necessary financial reserves and lost money on my first rehab opportunity, so I’m seriously in need of beginning to flip several properties to build cash reserves, my 5/30/2020 $97 investment in Awesome R/E was made with the expectation of building a Buyer’s list for a few opportunities that I currently have an eye on, but I’m unable to secure assignable contracts, because of no operating funds left in the company.
I temporarily moved away from my family so I could finish a Fix and Flip and do this to start a new vertical income stream. So I may be busy but I’m not a wannabe. My actions speak for themselves.
Thanks for checking! I don’t like wasting my time on the wrong people either.
Hi Patrick, happy to know that you’re monitoring and giving advice you think is needed.
In answer to your question, it’s a RESOUNDING YES, so you are wrong this time around. I have decided that since I’m this focused on success that reviewing the videos over to be sure I understand everything I need to
Slower than you would like, but sure Appreciate the follow up. Thank you
Yes, I am committed.
I appreciate this uplift exactly what I need it at this time, I was down and out but I wasn’t about to go on a drought and that meaning is to never to quit so thanks for the uplift.
I can commit 2 hours a day 6 days a week. I wish i could put more time but i spend 10 hours a day on my job but i want to invest time so i can retire my job in 3 days.
I don’t know if that what i require for part time?
Well let me start off Patrick by saying yes yes yes i am commited to succeeding in this program and at real estate investing. Ive been interested in real estate investing for many years now, going to many seminars like Carlton sheets, Robert kiosoki, Wealth Builders, Than Merulle and a few others but have always struggled due to procrastination and living paycheck to paycheck not feeling confident about having the funds or the credit to due a deal not to mention cost for advertising and training and the timming of trying to do it. But i am dedicated to becomming successful with this program. Thank you
Hey Patrick well right off the back im gonna answer your question and it is a SOLID YES, YES, YES i am committed to succeeding in Real Estate. Ive been interested in Real Estate for years, gone to several seminars , Carton Sheets, Rich man Poor man Robert Kiosoki, Wealth Builders , Than Murrell. My problem has been the cost it takes to make money. Sometimes because im living paycheck to paycheck and timming its a struggle to participate in all the things that may be required for me to move forward quickly. Im not giving up though. Also i realize that there has been procrastination on my part as well. Im just focusing on pushing through to get to my end result of succeeding.
I have been procrastinating about real estate for a few years now and am more focused and committed at this moment about succeeding than I’ve ever been. I have started my search for a few vacant owners and even though it is proving to be difficult, I am pressing on. I am greatly appreciative of this opportunity and intend to take full advantage and make both you and myself proud.
Well Im ready to get going on this. Several years in the construction buisness has shown me how this can work. I am commited to starting to get a deal together rite now. Please continue in keeping in touch with me. Piont me the way forward. I am open to any advice you might have. Ive been listening to the nay sayers too long its time to make a change. Thank you for this oppertunity and keep up the good work.
Sincerly David Johnson
I am very committed! The force is with me talking to people! No deals yet! I know with persistence hard work pays off! Marketing online is new for me so I took a leap and started talking to people online as well. Zoom is this quarantined woman’s best friend now ! Hehehe
I am using Pat for close family familiarity to let you know that I am very COMMITTED. We are family right? I am Finacially Turtle Walking it (lol) due to this BS Covid-19 “Scamdemic” we are living in at the momoent. I have been putting my little financial resources together to finalize my business/maeking. plan and today I will be filing my Corporate (LLC) paper with tge State of PA, you can mark this date. Also, today I will be reaching out to Some Cash Buyers to position myself for quick turnarounds. I am simply filling up any pitfalls/potholes that may arrive and keep my business from propelling forward. I also have contacts in 3 other states that who are ready and waiting for me to finalize my Corporate Papers. The time is 4:52 am on 5/29/2020 and I can not sleep. The bank don’t open until 8:00 am. I have 3 exciting hours to before then and the I will complete the online filing shortly thereafter. Oh by the way, you can use the two phrases that I quoted above: ” Financially Turtle Walking” & ” Covid-19 SCAMDEMIC”. I know Cam & JP will love them. My website is still under construction.
Hello Patrick, i would like to let you know that i’m very committed to getting to that finish line with a big fat check in my hand.I would also like to let you know few of my motivations for getting through this program is to be able quit my 9-5 and take care of my family in West Africa with out having to struggle down to the last penny in my bank account.Thank you so much for the encouragement….I’LL SEE YOU @THE TOP:)
Yes I very commit show me HOW !!!
Yes, i am committed to not letting myself down. Giving up is not a luxury i can afford. The time is” NOW”.
Hi Patrick, I have been totally committed from day 1. I am continuing to do my marketing while improving my systems to automate. I am close to hitting my first homerun.
Thanks for asking 🙂
Thank for reaching out to me. i just want to let you know that I am totally commuted. Now that i have went through training I am working on a process to help me execute my plan. Don’t have a lot of money to work with so I’m trying to taken my time to avoid costly mistakes.
Hey Patrick, “Never count the one assumed beaten out, they have direct attention on the target”. Thanks so much for the concern. About a month ago you had Lee Arnold as a host for Capital Syndent Broker session. My focus is on brokering at this point. I take it a level higher as you say, and now I am a Certified Broker Private Money Lender under the Lee Arnold system. Anyone who needs capital the fund their deals I have all the funds available their need! Thank you for your words of encouragement. My anwer is YES!
Yes, I am committed. I’ve maintained my desire to use real estate as a foundation for wealth. I’ve invested in a few of Awesome REI trainings that I am putting to use and have found a little money to use as well. Its taken a while but I finally have everything I need to move forward and during this almost 5 year period I’ve worked under the same principle. The only way to fail is to quit. Everything else is just a part of the process.
The question was a good one. I was just thinking to myself, how am I going to get around this stay at home order to go see property? I know that thought was just to put me in a negative place. So thank you for your question.
I been a little under the weather ( as some say) lost a friend to virus and also I been out of work for three weeks just got a job. Will step up and keep going.
Yes I’m committed. I’m still new at this venture but trying to learn as much as possible. I’m looking forward to start making deals. My why is establishing a better future for my family.
I am thinking and about to Take A Leap Of Faith!!
The “Corona Virus Timing” maybe the best things to happen!! Not in a bad way… Shutting down will give me the time I need.
Yes I’m committed and want to make a HUGE CHANGE IN MY LIFE!! I just need to get really focused. And put in ALOT MORE TIME AND WORK. I know YOU get what you put out. THANKS
Good morning! Thank you so much for the message. Yes, I am totally committed to do my part in making this work for me and my family.
Hi Patrick, YES! I am most definitely committed. I have had a slight sidetrack (a number of medical emergencies related to my wife). That’s only a temporary delay. I am excited, focused, determined, and in no way discouraged. It’s something that I have to deal with as I continue to move forward. Nothing will stop me!
I am committed. Doing cold calling, mailing, email and working on my buyers list
I am committed to this business. I must admit I’ve been nervous to jump into the real estate investing game but this program has given me the strength I need. I really enjoy the encouraging emails you all send out they are very helpful.
I am in to win just getting familiar with the resources just used the mailing system can’t wait to have full excess so I am on my way to success thanks for asking
Yes, I am committed. This past week I have been looking at what is most important for me, what I most need to do and also what I want and dream of. That is clarifying it for me and I’m putting my efforts into learning this real estate stuff as a way to a better life. I can do it. Others have, why not me?
Thanks P-Rid, we need those metaphoric “kicks in the pants” to keep us going.
Yes, i am committed, at first i was under the impression that it could be just another programs that gets you interested, then offer little or no support. I have to do this because i know the value that real estate brings to everyone…people have to live somewhere so there is always a need for housing.
I personally have tried several programs and failed miserably at them, i blame myself for not giving them enough personal time and patience, i did not dedicate enough energy and enthusiasm in learning the processes required. This particular opportunity has really resonated with me and i feel that this is the one and with your guidance i will prevail.
I am committed ! Thanks for the email and its time to get rid of all of the negative subconscious mental blocks and move forward looking forward to collect that wholesale check and keep moving upward and push through any resistance! Hired a Virtual Assistant to assist with cold calls and a good skip tracer .
Yes Patrick I am wholly committed to making this business successful. What ever it takes! I have risen from the ashes like a phoenix. Have finally recovered from a devastating bank bankruptcy that taught me allot. One of those important life lessons.
Yes, I am very committed to making this work, Have been looking at the data feed for houses and have made some phone calls with no response. But I plan on keep on keeping on.
Thanks for the encouragement. Yes, I am committed to my Real Estate business and I look forward to closing at least 2 deals a month to begin. As I learn the business and become more proficient, the sky is the limit…
That was good information that you shared and thanks for the encouragement!
I am continuing to learn and is enjoying the accomplishments of success that follows;
after all, it has been said and I truly believe that a quitter never winds and a winner never quits!
Patrick, I and my Team are committed 220%…. Thanks for the information and motivation. Those two things, I’ve found, lead to DIRECTION. We’re committed to take MASSIVE IMPERFECT ACTION!!!!! Thanks Again:)
Crown-Lux Investments LLC – Alabama
Yes, I am committed to this Airbnb. I can’t wait to get my first deal in..
This is just the shot in the arm,I needed. I need to read the material again, take massive action and donate a portion of my profits to a worthwhile charitable cause. Eldridge2.0
Awesome goals, Eldridge! Make it happen!
I believe that I maybe close to doing my first deal. Right now I am looking for wholesalers and I have some cash buyers. However I do not have the funds for earnest money or closing fees. I believe if I can bring a wholesaler and a cash buyer together, I will be on my way.
I am committed to succeed.
Have a great day!
Hey Vivian, that’s great to hear! Keep pushing forward.
Just follow the 10-Hour Wholesaler training step-by-step and you’ll make it happen.
@Vivian—If you’re assigning contracts or wholesaling w/Justin’s 10-hour wholesaler method, you shouldn’t need anything for earnest money or closing fees. I haven’t had to pay an EMD or closing fees on a wholesale deal in years now. Keep learning!
Thank you for asking, I am committed and I want this a lot. I just don’t seem to know how to get started. Still in the game!!!
I am committed but being a disabled vet on a fixed income with a family to support where does the money come for all these programs?
Hey David, it’s time to lose the “but”. Just say “I am committed.”
There are people who have gone before you that were more disadvantaged than you and have succeeded massively.
What you focus on is going to affect whether or not you can make it in this business. If you focus on why it’s not going to work for you, then it’s not going to work for you.
You don’t need money to use some strategies to find motivated sellers. You don’t need funding to close deals because you can wholesale them. There’s a wealth of free information online. Don’t purchase programs if you don’t have the money. Just consume what you can for free and take massive action.
No matter what your current circumstances are, with the right attitude and actions, you can do this!
@David—man, I’ve been so broke before (financially, mentally and physically) and one thing I’ve learned is to *ask better questions* of myself and *expect better answers* to present themselves.
So instead of “where does the money come?” try “how can I think outside the box to make this happen?”. I’m not trying to belittle you…what I sense in your comment is small thinking. Instead of saying, “I can’t because…” say “How can I…?”
Give your subconscious mind better questions, and creative answers will often unexpectedly present themselves to you. I’m rooting for you, David!
