Morgan started early to keep his needs minimum. When he graduated from college, the young Morgan decided he would become successful by brokering real estate investments. In order to do this, he approached one of the most successful real estate investors in the country and agreed to work at whatever job he was assigned if the investor would teach him how to put together real estate syndicates.
For the next five years, Morgan found himself working in various cities across the country as an attendant in parking lots owned by his mentor. His income was so small that a hamburger was a special treat. He couldn’t afford to get married. But he did learn the real estate business. In the four years following his tutelage, Morgan was able to put together real estate syndicates which made him a millionaire by the time he was in his early thirties.
Beloved, there are times you need to do the things you don’t like to get what you want. Life is all about making sacrifices. If you really want something so much, the way to go about it will come. There is nothing like something for nothing.
A young man once asked for a startup capital. I asked him what he wanted to do and how he was going to invest the money. He began to stammer. He has not done his home work well. He has no business plan. He has nothing. He just wants money with no idea.
Decide to keep on going till you get what you want. Remember the ants. Nothing stops them from moving except death.
