Don't Believe The Cynics When It Comes To Property Investing

Aug 22, 2008
Everywhere you go, you hear the same sad things: "The rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer." "There just isn't enough to go around." "It takes money to make money." This can lead you to believe that there is some mystical force out there that regular people like you and me just can't tap into. If you subscribe to this way of thinking long enough, you may be tempted to say, "Since it takes money to make money and I have no money, then what hope is there for me?" There is plenty of hope, as long as you don't listen to the wrong people. Media naysayers are definitely the wrong people.

You may have heard discouraging words from the media regarding the plummeting values and rising prices of property investments. Like many people, you may consider success in real estate to be an utterly impossible goal in today's economy. If this is the case, however, you've been listening to the wrong people; in reality, people are making money in real estate right now, and you can too, if you listen to the right people.

This isn't a difficult principle. Think about the people you know who are cynical and jaded about the very possibility of financial success. Are any of them wealthy? Not a chance! If you want to know how you can make more money, don't go to those who obviously have no clue. Find someone who has actually succeeded, and ask him or her for advice; what you'll hear is that becoming rich as an investor really isn't as difficult as you may think. So why doesn't everyone invest? First of all, people are fooled by pessimists into thinking that it's a losing game.

Most people are scared of trying to make money, based on cynicism and negative hype.

The other reason most people aren't making a fortune on the real estate market, is that it's just so simple. The people who find great success in property investing are the ones who learn a logical system and stick to it. A systematic approach is reliable, but it's also dull, and that's why so many people forego the obvious, proven methods of making money, and get tripped up on complex, esoteric moneymaking scams. These sorts of schemes may seem more fun and dramatic than gradually building wealth through proven methods, but the problem is that they simply do not work.

Sensationalism is a proven way to appeal to basic human nature, and that's why, rather than informing people about the tried and true ways that money can be made, the news media instead focuses on scaring the average Joe into believing in a grim picture of how the world works. With this kind of negativity on display on television and in print, it's no surprise that many see the world as a bleak place, where it is next to impossible to get ahead.

The good news is, it doesn't have to be.

If you aspire to success in the world of property investing, it's essential that you listen to those who have experience in the game, those who know the ropes and can teach you what you need to know. Consulting these people will help you to develop the systematic plan that you will follow to financial success. The key is not to get suckered in by proclamations of gloom from the news media, but rather to understand that you do have the potential to succeed, and to learn the proven strategies from those who have come before you.
