Chin Up!


It is why people with multiple degrees and credentials get stalled. They may also be unable to grow because of market deficit or, because with an arrested market, they may feel that they have the luxury to do so.

In these dates and times, slouching is just not in vogue. There are too many opportunities to rise and shine! SEEK THEM! Most of us are becoming quite crafty and reinventing of ourselves.

It can be fun becoming a new you!

Mortgages can't wait. Responsibilities can't wait. Leaning on elderly parents is not an option in this date of uncertainty.

Many of us have suffered some horrendous situations these past few years - it is time to buckle up and get into gear.

I personally lost an income property to foreclosure while assisting some associates in real estate adventures.

Before losing the house I decided I would be savvy and innovative. I made my mind up to do whatever it took to keep the house. I rented it. I made it a luxurious vacation alternative .. but after a year the market burst. People were no longer traveling, they were not renting, nor were they in need of student housing off-campus because 'Mom & Dad' could not afford that lifestyle.

I failed and the "HouseonAHill" was lost. I vowed to steer clear of income real estate and my go-getting risk--taking friends!

That was two years ago.

Instead of sinking with my dreams, I rose and started to blog. I blogged about staying in a healthy mind-frame. I journaled about starting fresh and changing paths. I did not speak about my failure, only about how I saw my life heading in a smarter more vibrant hue.

Today I feel renewed and optimistic.

Life still has many challenges ~ and I am sure there are more to come, however, when you put yourself in the mindset of "SUCCEED AT ALL COST" it tends to stay there and manifest a love of life multiplied.

Keep the faith, I have!!

there's an old saying that it doesn't matter how many times life knocks you down . .

the only thing that matters is how many times you get back up ..

control what you can, and don't worry about the rest ..

you're on the right path ..
