Have you ever said something disparaging about your career to yourself, significant other or to the universe? Things like “I hate real estate,” “Real estate is trying to kill me,” “This isn’t for me anymore” or something similar. It’s normal to have these thoughts.

You don’t have to love real estate forever — as long as you live. But you should love what results from the high level of service you provide. That’s known as profit. Profit makes the world go around. It pays for your car, house, and awesome vacations. It pays for you to be able to take time off, pay off your debt, flip houses, buy rentals and more.
