Catching the REI bug at only 22 from a couple of Clemson pals, these ‘bad influences’ talked him into dropping out of college & going all-in with real estate investing. Since then, closing hundreds of deals involving about every kind of real estate investing transaction out there—and learning huge lessons from a journey teeming with big wins, some hard knocks & everything in between. Which is exactly why he passionately pours so much into helping others make their own learning curve to REI success shorter and less painful than his was.

Are You Committed?

Patrick Riddle

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:

  1. Make a solid commitment today.
  2. Draw a hard line in the sand.
  3. 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.”

Meaning this:
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.  🙂
