You Can’t Win If You Don’t Try

Yup, this blog still exists!  I have been swamped with life the past few months, but I am going to make a concerted effort to write here more often.  I have to admit that I have been having quite a bit of fun writing over at 47 Reviews.  But this site really helps me get out my thoughts and torments and work my way through them.  So, with no further ado…

Amber and I have been looking at properties and let me tell you that there are some very interesting houses for sale in the Des Moines area.  : )  It is interesting to me how much just going out and looking increases your knowledge.  I feel it is about the same with sales as well.  So I am just going to combine the two for this post and talk about them as one.

I feel like I really have no idea what I am doing when it comes to sales and investing.  I understand where I want to be.  I understand the process in a general sense for both.  But for some reason, I do not feel like I have a grasp of either.  What is really interesting is that I go into a client meeting or to look at a potential house, and what I come out with is completely different from what I thought I was going to come out with.

I think the lesson for me has been to just do.  I am way ahead of where I started in both respects, and I already understand where I was completely ignorant even just a few months ago.  That last thought kind of frightens me. What will I think of me now in about 6 months?  Hopefully, I will think that he was so lost and backwards and understand more and more.

But the important thing is that I just keep trying.  As long as I have a specific goal, the only way I can fail is if I stop.  It might take me a long time, but if I just keep trying, I will have to get there eventually.

Food for thought.
