|By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the doomed Oceangate mission that was to visit the resting place of the Titanic.|
Five souls were lost in this tragic endeavor. But to me what’s even more sad is the flippant reaction of some to the event. The internet abounds with jokes and memes about what happened. Amateur pundits with zero scientific experience hide behind their keyboards pointing out all the flaws and errors.
Now could there have been things done to prevent this tragedy? I’m sure. But kudos to the brave souls who were brave enough to take a risk to see and experience what most people can only dream of.
Consider the other direction. How many who decried this fateful voyage would jump at the opportunity to take a voyage into outer space as a tourist given the opportunity?
Would there be similar risks involved with a trip to space? You betcha. But I guarantee you that Space X and Blue Origin’s space tourism waiting list hasn’t gotten any shorter because of what happened this past week.
There’s something baked into our DNA that continues to push us. It’s the reason we landed on the moon. It’s the reason human beings descended to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, a whopping 35,876 feet deep, in 2020.
And I think it’s the reason you and I just can’t settle for the “ordinary” life our neighbors and friends are content with. They can stay chained to their W2 lifestyle and 9 to 5 schedules. But we want more.
Technology has pushed humanity to do amazing things. But when it comes to real estate, it has created a flood of competition. People who don’t have the same intelligence or drive as you or I are muddying the waters making it more difficult for us to connect with sellers.
And this becomes a problem for “ordinary” investors, agents, and brokers.
But not for us in the probate niche. You can’t use A.I. or Facebook ads to create real life face to face relationships with real people. Our ability to have meaningful conversations with people and help them solve their probate problems is what sets us apart from everyone else.
There’s a lot less competition in probate because it takes guts to take that leap and do what most other investors, agents, and brokers are simply unwilling to do.
To your success,

Was Visiting the Titanic Really Worth It?
