Very very recently I made a decision that changed my career, and it was not an easy one to make… but ….
I decided to take a leap of faith.
If you have read the previous posts and got a glimpse of my recent “financial independence” win, you would probably say that I would be crazy to risk it all in the pursue of a dream. (wait for it!)
But couple of things happened that made me decide to risk it all.
I prove to myself that I can become financial independent anytime. As long as I made a decision, planed my self, and executed the plan.
Once you have no more “problems” to deal with, in this case “financial burden” you become a little empty inside. Kind of in need of a new problem to deal with. (Weird, I know!)
But bare in mind that I am the type of person that need to work on solving something, otherwise I can be a little depressed (or really depressed).
Because I became financial independent it opened a door for me to pursue something I always wanted to. DRUM ROLLS PLEASE !!!!
COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
CRE has always been that facet of the business that got me super excited. I love seeing the trades on the industry, meeting the players, and seeing investors shaping neighborhoods. But on the other side of the coin, I needed money (and other things) to be able to get in and not have to quit because I can’t survive until my first deal closes.
So, here is where …. Making [Planned] Decisions and Sticking to It comes in to play …
As I sat in my paid off apartment, with very little motivation and dreading to get back to work in residential real estate – and a little depressed of course.
I know I sound like a complainer, but something was missing, and I knew what it was…
So I gave some thought and decided to go for it, even if in the long run it would require me sell of my condo.
What is amazing, it is how fast things move when you make a decision and burn your bridges.
In better words:
“… I will burn all bridges behind me, and stake my entire future on the ability to get what I want. He left himself no possible way of retreat. He had to win or perish!”

Napolion Hill know whats up!
I was introduced to Think and Grow Rich in 2007, and it took me 11 years to fully understand the meaning of passion, specialized knowledge, the power of your mind, the close affiliations with those that are above you in riches, and much more.
I highly suggest his book, it helped me in many times, specially now.
I am excited again, but like everything in life sacrifice and effort must be made.
Do what your LOVE! Plan your plan and execute with no option to retrieve, until you acquire what you aimed for.
Good luck to us all!
