Like Michael Oher puts it, courage is a hard thing to figure out; you can have courage based on a dumb idea or a mistake, but you should hope for courage and try for honour.
A lot of people have contemplated the idea of investing for building wealth that will sustain them over many years and even generations to come. The truth is, they believe in this idea, but the risk of uncertainty involved is enough to send shivers down their spine. But how do you deal with that fear and still live that investment dream? Romeo Gabbana was able to not only deal with the fear; he turned it into the fuel to build his wealth. Like many of us, Romeo started off working a regular job with no goals or drive to become better. Until one day, he had a vision while working at Walmart that he would become one of the biggest promoters in Texas.
Romeo’s investment journey started with only $750, a vision, and the drive to succeed. But like many things, nothing is possible without the first step. A few years after his first step, Romeo drew over 2000 people to his birthday bash; he had mastered the art of promotion. It wasn’t an easy journey to the top, but it was primarily due to his ability to just start. However, Romeo didn’t stop there and parlayed his success in real estate investing. For a lot of people, there is a hesitancy and apprehension around investing that is as a result of past experiences, they have had or stories they have heard from people around them. For others, it is merely a fear of the unknown. Whatever the root of that fear is, like all other fears, it can be overcome.
Taken from the psychologist playbook, a common tactic to overcome fear is exposure. Sometimes, the only way to overcome your fear is by exposing yourself to the object of fear head-on and working in that space to address it. In other words, just starting and facing your fear head-on. Also, essential to both mastering and conquering your fear is to take a leap of faith. When people hear successful investment stories, they often ask, “how did you know when the time was right?”. The truth is, there is never a perfect time, but there is always the time to trust and invest in yourself. Know that path will likely not be a straight line the first time. Romeo’s journey was not a simple one, but through it, he uncovered the fundamental principles it takes not to let anything stand in your way to success. The key is just to start and to keep taking little steps that will draw you nearer to your goal. One checkpoint reached no matter the difficulty is better than having perfect conditions yet staying inactive. So, to achieve your objectives, you must have an unfaltering responsibility to remain committed and consistent and know that you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. In his new eBook, Romeo Gabbana shares his formula for overcoming your fear of investing by sharing the principles it takes to make it through anything and live successfully and with abundance and prosperity.
