Playing golf is a mental sport. 90% of the game is about focus, strategy, and confidence.
Real Estate Investing is no different.
You can practice on the golfing range for many hours and days, but until you get out onto the golf course and play the game you will never truly understand what golf is all about. Same applies to Real Estate Investing…you can read dozens of books, you can attend dozens of seminars, you can sit there and analyze hundreds of properties, but until you actually pull the trigger and purchase a property will you begin to understand what true ownership is all about. You will then begin to experience landlording and better yet wealth building.
I definitely encourage preparation, education and practice, but I also cheer on taking action.
