College Drop Out

There’s a website I go to once in a while just for laughs. It’s called fml and it’s a site where people share bad things that are happening to them and then other people get to vote whether they think that person’s life sucks or if they deserved what happened to them.

So this one guy writes:
“Today, I got an email stating that my scholarship request was denied, 51 days after applying with no response. I’m now forced to drop out from my college degree because I ran out of money, and I’ve been unsuccessful at finding a job for two years either, thanks to the pandemic.”

Get this – 86% of people voted that his situation wasn’t his own fault!

To me, this is a crystal ball into the future of not only our country as a whole but also real estate.
First, how is it this guy hasn’t been able to find a job for the past two years?!? 

Are you kidding me? 

Just about every business is looking for help. All you need is a pulse and you’re hired. The truth is this guy doesn’t want to work. And he’s not alone. Somehow we’re raising a generation of lazy, self-indulged, entitled losers.

Second, it’s crazy to me that people give up so easily. They hit one obstacle and they throw in the towel. Although he didn’t get the scholarship he wanted, he could have figured out another way to either make money or secure funding to pay for his education.

But this is good news for you.

Our society is producing generation after generation of defeatists. As soon as the ride gets bumpy, they bail.

Real estate isn’t for the faint of heart. While everyone else is giving up when things don’t go their way, you’ll find long-term success if you don’t give up and get resourceful.

When you’re faced with a problem, you need to figure out how to get over it, around, it or through it. Use your brain and get creative. Don’t give up.

The market may look like it’s crowded with buyers, but most of them are like our college dropout friend here. They are all looking for a quick buy, not willing to stay the course.

This is especially true with probate. 

Being patient, resourceful, creative, and determined will get you a huge payoff in the end. But you always be willing to learn and grow in order to profit.

And the beauty of probate is that profits are usually waaaayyyy bigger than most traditional real estate deals.

Committed to your success,
