14. Stick With Reality

Next Principle

By taking the time for daily reflection, you adjust your thinking. In the real world, everything is not beautiful in its own way. Some economically devastated areas may not recover in your lifetime. Some products are obsolete and worthless. Some causes can't be supported. Some bosses are idiots who play favorites. You are a thinking person of action. So, think. Pick your shots. Consider your strengths and weaknesses and the marketplace. Pause. Gather information. Consider options. Decide. Act. Maybe you should relocate or find new partners or get more training or start again.

Because you can do a lot does not mean that you can do everything. Get real. No matter how much you want it, you cannot impose your will on cats to make them use the house toilet. No matter how excellent your translations, there are still very few professorships in Latin.

In real estate, there is a positive reality. It is reality that everyone has to live somewhere, that the population is increasing and that real estate is a hedge against inflation. It is reality that more money has been made in real estate than all other forms of investing combined. It is reality that more people have become millionaires through real estate investing than any other way.
