JL's Columbia SC Real Estate Blog: Have You Ever Considered Just Believing in Yourself?

Have You Ever Considered Just Believing in Yourself?

 I have seen so many people in my life fail for no other reason than the fact that they listened to everyone else. If I listened to the majority of the people that I know, I would be a lot different than I am today. I'd be a lot less successful. I love it when people tell me that I can't do something. Or that what I am trying is way too difficult. Just because their too afraid to give it a shot, doesn't mean that I am. I love to prove non believers wrong.

 I had a ton of people tell me that I would never really amount to anything. I'm no Donald Trump, but my wife and I pay our own bills and we don't ask for or expect any help from anyone else. It's called determination, look into it. I'm tired of hearing people say that things aren't possible for them. They can't buy a house, they can't go to college, they can't be a success. No one ever said that this life was going to be easy, or that there wouldn't be times in all our lives when we won't to give up. The difference is that not all of us do.

 Stop listening to everyone else and start believing in yourself. If you think that someone else is going to do the work for you, then you've got the wrong impression I assure you. It's not always going to be easy and it's not always going to be fun. It's all a part of earning what you get, and you get out what you put in. So, stop listening to everyone else, start listening to yourself and stop feeling sorry for yourself. The game will go on, even if you decide to sit on the sidelines and watch. As for me, I came to play and I hope that you did too.

Belief in oneself is so critical when you own your own business, of course it's important for everyone too, but when there is only you, YOU have to believe.  HOW else can you develop business, get people to believe in your product, service or expertise if you don't believe in yourself? 

Good point and reminder JL.

The belief in yourself carries over to everything we as individuals do...

Great reminder for us in this "market". If we work hard and know that we can survive all the negativity that the media keeps throwing at us, then we can make it through the best time for individuals to invest in a primary home or investment. Believe in yourself and anything is possible.

You mean I going to have to work to be succesful. I may want to get a second opinion (lol).

Thank you for the reminder post. Your points are especially helpful in this market. Some people really don't get it. Real Estate is a competitive business. You can't wink in the dark.
