What the hell is up with that??

So today, it being Saturday and a perfect day to be out contacting people about buying their homes, I didn’t do jack diddly squat on my real-estate investing. I knew what I should do. I knew how to do it. I’ve done it before. I knew I needed to do it. But I didn’t do a damn thing! I literally walked around the house from room to room, just kinda randomly aimless, and didn’t do a thing. I now sit here at the end of the day and think to myself, WTF just happened??!!?? Usually my Saturdays are pretty good, but not this one. Bleh. Anybody else have this happen, too? Anybody have a good answer to what the hell is up with that?


I think it’s your mind telling you to chill out and do nothing. If this unusual for you, then don’t worry about it. You’ll get back on track.

You need to take a break from the business, take a break from the boards. Go somewhere, get away from the stress, get yourself rejuvenated.

Come back in a couple of weeks with a renewed spirit and a fresh, positive attitude.

Dr_white… this is very common for me. Yesterday (Saturday) I went outside and threw bouncy balls back and forth with my 2 friends. Stuff happens man!


Spring fever.

Whenever I start getting that same feeling, I glance at this quote which is posted on my wall and think about how badly I want it.


I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.

HHI Investing

Go out and look at a HIGHLY profitable property that you MISSED!!! They’re in the paper under real estate transactions every weeK!!! Pick one out, drive by that property and ask the NEW OWNER how he found it…THEN JUST LISTEN!!!

No better way to motivate ANYONE than to be looking at $50,000 you walked past on the street and didn’t pick up!!!

That’ll get your head straight faster than anything your going to tell yourself.

I get really angry at myself when I waste a day doing nothing.

But I do budget some hours or 1-2 odd days in a month to let my mind cool off completely.

Time is something you never get back in life. Get angry like you would get angry if someone lit your money on fire.

listen to fdjake…

Cut the whining BS and get motivated or get the **** out of the game…

Greed is good… :evil

Your normal. Fear. I’ve had many of those days. But more productive days then “those” days. or you’ll end up getting distracted and start doing something else. Finish that something and feel a sense of accomplishement. But you know deep down you were suppose to do what you should have done. As long as you have more good than bad days you’ll be fine. Of course not giving up… EVER.

I don’t think Dean’s problem is fear. I think he is just a little burned out. Forcing himself back into the game right away may not help as much as a little vacation.

Work is great stuff, but everybody needs to take an occassional mental health day to recharge the batteries.

It’s more efficient to have days of relaxation scheduled, instead of just gakking out. But everybody needs to take occssional days to enjoy life, bond with the family, get a little recreation and soak up some solar energy.

Forgive yourself and move on…then schedule yourself time off and take it as scheduled…

Or when you feel like that, force yourself to do at least X number of tasks to find motivated sellers or whatever, do the tasks quickly and then take the rest of the day off, guilt free.

Thanks all. Don’t worry, I’m good. The day did end much better than it started. By late in the day (as in past 11pm, haha!), I had shaken it off and was back into hunting around for possible motivated seller candidates and found a few just a few miles from my house. I guess it was just a weird day.

At my Business Law class, I talked to one classmate about finding him a rental that I know a few of that could fit him well. Plus, I talked with the teacher and his interest in buying properties for both himself and his kids to build their own home. On top of that, next class, I’m going to talk to another person about her husband who is a general contractor for building houses and see what we could partner together. I made sure to get business cards handed out to them all. 3 1/2 contacts in one night, yea, I’m back in the swing of things.
