|A friend of mine is visiting me here in Los Angeles this week.|
He’s from a very small town in northern Wisconsin and has never been to California. So I’m showing him what big city life is all about.
Yesterday we went to the beach (he’s never seen the Pacific ocean before), and as we’re driving on the 101 to get there, he points up and asks why there’s razor wire on the highway signs.
It’s there to keep graffiti artists from vandalizing the signs.
It’s crazy to think that someone would risk life and limb to climb 20 feet of steel, cans of paint in hand while rush hour traffic is barreling down the highway at 70 miles an hour underneath them.
If those dangers aren’t going to stop them, I’m not sure razor wire is going to stop them either.
That is the personification of dedication.
I’ll bet you a lot of graffiti artists look at a highway sign like that and wish they could leave their mark on it, but resign themselves to the fact that they just can’t get up there to do it.
Real estate is the same way, my friend. There is a ton of money to be made, especially through probate. But it takes dedication, long-term vision, and quite honestly, like an old mentor of mine would say….brass balls.
Most people give it a try but are quickly defeated by their own limiting beliefs and lack of commitment.
But for those of us who are willing to figure out how to get past the razor wire. Ahhh, the rewards are so sweet!y less than you know you deserve.
Committed to your success,
