It's tangible, it's solid, it's beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate.- Every day, you'll have opportunities to take chances and to work outside your safety net. Sure, it's a lot easier to stay in your comfort zone.. in my case, business suits and real estate.. but sometimes you have to take risks. When the risks pay off, that's when you reap the biggest rewards. Donald Trump.

My mother owned a real estate agency when I was a teenager and young adult. My first job was with that company and I learned a lot from my mom and that industry that is still relevant to me today. I got to thinking today about real estate and dreams and found some metaphorical similarities that I wanted to share with you.
Does your dream have property? You make your dream more real when you have something tangible, touchable about it. Do you have a website? A product that you can touch? An office location? Any one of these things show that you are serious enough about your dream to have invested in some actual property.
Does your dream have sweat equity? If you are working hard, putting your heart, blood sweat and tears into your dream, then you are serious. All of that work will come back to you. It is your sweat equity into your business. When you put hard word into maintaining a real estate property, it comes back to you in increased financial value. The same is true of sweat equity. Keep working at it and it will come back to you.

Is your dream a sought after commodity? Real estate increases its value over time. The properties that increase in value are those in prime locations that are in excellent condition. They are desirable, sought after commodities. Listening to your customers and offering exactly what they say they want will increase your dream businesses value over time.

Do you love your dream enough? People that love their properties invest in them. Do you love your dream enough to make the necessary investments in it and in you to make sure that it not only survives, but thrives? Keep learning so that you can fuel that passion and be able to overcome adversity. Keep reminding yourself why you had this dream in the first place. Are you and your dream worth it?
