Apartment Investing – The Most Important 8 Words For 2012

If you are like most people this time of year, you are getting ready for parties, eating some food, having a few drinks, and celebrating the New Year. Then comes the hangover!

Look, I too am going to enjoy ringing in the New Year…

However – this is the time of year when I get very serious about setting some goals for the coming few months and for 2012. In fact, I love this time of year because it allows us to “reboot” and get off to a “fresh start”. And the most successful apartment investors I know do the same thing.

Listen, if you are not where you want to be in terms of:

– Financially

– Fitness

– Health

– Spiritually

– Personally

– Etc.

You get the picture…

If you are not at a place that you want to be right now, really in any area of your life (of course we talk a lot about money here and investment real estate which is important but not the only thing) I want to give you the most important 8 words that will get you where you want to go…Really! Here they are:

“What Are You Going To Do About It?”

You see, I have zero respect for people that complain about whatever “problem” or “issue” they have and then do not do a doggone thing about it. They just complain!

For example. I have some relatives that will be visiting us over the weekend and they will whine and moan about not having enough money to do “X” and/or they cannot do some things they really wish they could do because they cannot afford it. They will complain about it and my eyes will glaze over… AGAIN!


Because they will never do anything about it. You see what separates you from the thousands of others that will be reading this today is whether you actually do something about any circumstances that you are not happy with. Or just complain about it.

Are you really ready to play the game or just sit on the sidelines and watch and complain?

It REALLY comes down to that.

I guarantee you that the people that will be financially successful in 2012 are the people that are doing something about it. By the way, when I say doing something I mean taking action, buying a book and reading it is a step in the right direction but it is true ACTION that gets you from “dissatisfied” to “doing something about it”.

Take the next few days and do some personal reflection. Where are you – REALLY? Are you just complaining and in the end that is all you will do OR are you the type of person that is going to do something about it?

The answer to this question is revealing and frankly tells you what you can expect in your financial life and life in general.
