It occurred to me one day that because humans have the ability to make their own decisions, we also have the ability to hold ourselves back. Many real estate investors that I know, have been held back their entire lives because of poor, or no decision making.
I have a strong feeling that every cow on earth would be shaking in it's shoes if plants had the ability to make decisions like humans did. If plants had to make decisions, I am afraid to say, it would be all meat, all the time. I can see it now, a small little seed of corn gets buried in the ground. Instead of growing like it needs to, the corn would stay at the seed stage for a couple of years until it can get past the fact that it had one more inch of dirt over it than the seeds around it.
Once the small seed had grown into a one inch corn plant, then it would need a couple of more years to grow into a medium size cornstalk. It would be difficult for the small plant to grow because instead of using it's energy for growth, all of it's energy would be dedicated to figuring out why the corn around it was getting more sun. Finally, after a couple of years of evaluating why the other corn had it so much better, the little plant would become medium sized. Only of course, after it had exhausted all of it's options for keeping the other plants from getting more sun.
Now the medium sized plant would have some big decisions to make. Should it grow up to full size and risk not producing corn that would be good enough for the farmer to eat. Maybe it should stay medium sized, so that it doesn't need to face the possible painful rejection by the farmer.
Can you even imagine? What decisions have you been making in your real estate investing career that have kept you a seedling rather than a full stalk of corn? Who are you blaming for blaming for your lack of sun? The answers to these questions will help take you from where you are now to where you want to be.
