Do you believe in luck? While success may appear to be luck, any successful person will tell you, if you wait around for luck, you’ll be waiting a long time.
Today is opening day at Coors Field. It might be lucky to catch a fly ball today, but how many players made it onto the roster of the Colorado Rockies by luck? Sure, a lucky break might be part of the story, but true success wasn’t created by chance, it was by choice. Only after making the choice to master the habits of a professional athlete can one find themselves in the position to get onto a professional sports team.
The same principle applies to success in real estate. The right choices lead to the right opportunities which create the success we desire. It may appear to be luck to a bystander (or even family and friends), but it’s really the result of study, hard work, patience and persistence. The investor who masters the craft will appear to be the luckiest.
What choices can you make today that will position you for a lucky break? Think about it, even the person who catches a fly ball today had to first buy a ticket.
