Ask yourself when it’s time to give up. Only you know when you’ve had enough dead ends and wrong turns. You have NOT failed in getting rich, you have gained tremendous knowledge in numerous ways on how NOT to gain wealth however. You have found that many paths were not the right ones for you. Life teaches us that there are many, many ways to NOT accomplish something but relatively few ways to achieve our goals. You have taken paths that were undoubtedly less traveled with your history in MLM, now imagine if you could put to use your drive and desire and determination and learn as much about real estate as you already know about MLM’ing and wow… the thought is staggering! I know how far I’ve come in just a few years in real estate investing and I can’t even imagine what I’ll have done by the time I’ve been doing this for a decade!
By the way… you didn’t spend 10 years of your life going nowhere… you’ve gotten here haven’t you? You’re none the worse for the wear if you have the means to learn from this and the vast other sources of real estate info.
Chin up! You have NOT given up, you have simply taken another turn on what will prove to be an endless road of obstacles to overcome, challenges to face and successes to savor!
