Newbie Motivation Excerpt

2 Replies

Just wanted to share a little of my new reading. I'm reading a new book, Ask and It is Given by Abraham Hicks. It is about Law of Attraction and your vibrational being. I came across a little excerpt that I thought is perfect for all of us newbies that get into real estate investing and wanting to give up. 

When you drive your vehicle from place to place, you have an awareness of your starting place as well as an awareness of where you are going. You accept that you cannot get there instantaneously; you accept that you will travel the distance, and in time, you will arrive at your destination. And while you may feel anxious to get there, and maybe even tire of the journey, you do not get so discouraged at the midway mark that you just turn around and go back to your starting place. You do not drive back and forth and back and forth from your starting point to the midway point and then finally collapse from the never ending journey. You do not announce your inability to accomplish your journey. You accept the distance between your starting place and where you desire to be—and you continue to move in the direction of your destination. You understand what is required—and you do it.

Accept the journey and know that you will arrive to your destination in time. Travel as far as you can see, and when you get there, you'll see a little further.



Make sense, I like that . In addition to that statement "Step into your greatness " quote from Les brown. 

Great stuff!Keep it up.I just read a thread on the “2% Rule” and it was getting a little heated.I like your post much better.
