  • REI In Your Car 207: Sometimes It’s Good to Remember the Pain, To Remember Where You Came From

I’m on my way home from meeting with a fellow investor named Jason (whom I will be interviewing in the near future). Jason has been through some rough spots, but with God’s help has turned his life around and is now doing well with his investing business.

Talking with him triggered memories of the tight times in my life when I was in agony over the enormity of debt I found myself in. I’ll never forget the feeling of being repeatedly called by debt collectors. And the sheriff visits threatening foreclosure. The times my wife tried to buy groceries and the credit card was invalid and she had to walk out empty-handed. And the list goes on.

I got myself into the mess, but then the recession accelerated the problems. But what do you do when your back’s against the wall? I know what I did. I pulled out all the stops and worked that much harder.

I see that happen with a number of investors I work with. There’s nowhere to turn, and even if they have no money to spare, they do what it takes to make things happen. (For instance, using free marketing like Craigslist and creating handwritten bandit signs.)

The thing is, you don’t have to wait till you’re down and out to give it your all in this business. Take massive action today—and every day.

Today’s the day you can make it happen.

Listen and Enjoy:
