Today’s quick thought is about passion.
I’ve been talking to a multiple different groups and organizations in the last week (groups specifically involved in Real Estate) and the one thing coming through is there passion.
And that passion seems to fit in various different camps.
Some are passionate about Real Estate, some are passionate about helping others and some seem to be passionate about just selling there products.
Passion can be a great thing as it does help you through the tough times and through the trying times. It seems to actually make the tough times actually easier.
Most important, it actually seems to be a requirement for long term success. We see it in many successful people around us.
Bill Gates was passionate about computer software, Warren Buffet was passionate about stocks and you can be passionate about your rental property. I’m not saying you need to go the route of the first two fellows, but if you’re passionate about creating a home for good people, while creating a nice reward for yourself, you can really succeed with your rental property.
If you treat it as “just a rental” or can be defined as a “slumlord”, your passion may not lean towards being a good successful landlord, but rather simply about money. That may get you closer to a money goal, but you might need to rethink your passion.
Find that balance, find that point of passion, that something that makes you happy and don’t let it drag you to just the money side, but rather let that be a bonus along the way. Like being a smart educated successful landlord 8′]
