Do One Thing Everyday that Scares You...
(Eleanor Roosevelt)

I read this statmeent yesterday on a bumper sticker as my husband and I were being driven in a car on a tour of Eugene Oregon, with a realtor, who was showing us the ropes of real estate investing, while filling us in on the market here in Eugene Or.

I was excited reading that because that's exactly what real estate investing is for me, SCARY! It's so new it makes my stomach turn sometimes as I move forward dealing with real people and real houses, not just Monopoly! The interesting thing is I love the newness of it, yet it scares me at the same time. I keep thinking, "I can't wait until this is so familiar to me, that it will be like driving a stick shift." I remember first learning with my sister Sarah and I couldn't figure out why I kept stalling and stalling and stalling... and yet she would remind me that one one day I wouldn't even have to think twice. Now today I remember that as I put it in 1st, 2nd, 3rd,...

All that to say, I have been recognizing that LIFE takes time. I used to HATE that saying, I used to get mad that "some things just take time." As a matter of fact I used to rebel against that statement thinking, "except for with me." But I FINALLY have recognized that it's not such a bad truth, it actually has relieved the fears of: "What if I miss it? What if there is never a deal this good? What if I run out of time? What if someone does it before me?"

I find relief in knowing, if I continue at this (whatever this may be); IN TIME, I will get better, it will become familiar, I will be one of those knowledgeable people whom I admire today, who knows so much, because they have been doing it for such a long TIME. :)
