You Only Fail If You Quit

May 14th, 2012

I read an inspiring blog post this week that really made me stop and think about not only how far I’ve been fortunate enough to have come, but also the fate of some others you may have heard of. Others who have had a dream and decided that they were never ever giving up, no matter what.

For example,we’ve all heard of those books “Chicken Soup for the Soul” right?  Did you know that the authors, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, brought their book to publisher after publisher, and received 134 rejections?  Obviously it was picked up, and has since become one of the most published and sought after book series in history!  Or, how about Walt Disney who “as a young man, Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star Newspaper because his boss thought he lacked creativity.”  I think we all know how that one ended!

One more example: Michael Jordan — “Most people wouldn’t believe that a man often lauded as the best basketball player of all time was actually cut from his high school basketball team. Luckily, Jordan didn’t let this setback stop him from playing the game and he has stated, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Investing in Real Estate is no different. You can fail, but only if you quit!  We began back in 2004 after experiencing that investing in real estate was more lucrative than mutual funds and equities.  “… it became clear that if I just continued doing the same thing that I was doing I was still going to be stuck in the position I had been in, which is lack of time and the chance to spend time with my family“. — Michael Ponte

Since then we have built a life around investing and building success for others as well as ourselves!  It is the most rewarding of careers!
