How I Passed My Real Estate Exam on the 1st Try!

Hello Pennies! It's certainly been awhile, hasn't it? Now before you get get mad and quit the blog, please know that I haven't been ignoring you guys and I definitely haven't forgotten about you either. I've found that focusing on a single task is super productive for me, so studying for my real estate exam became my primary focus. I studied at work, home, and pretty much everywhere I went for countless hours. I watched YouTube videos, made flash cards with the help of my wife, downloaded practice test apps, whipped out the calculator, a pencil and good ol' scratch paper for the math. 

I had anxiety, lost sleep, saw my job performance take a hit, prayed a lot, second guessed myself a million times, and thought that I couldn't do it. But I'm so grateful to God to share with you the good news... I passed my real estate exam! It was my 1st try, and I felt very nervous, and some questions through me for a loop. I even heard the reaction of people who failed their real estate exam, while I was still taking it! But after it was over, ten simple words validated this incredible journey we're on... I passed my real estate exam on the 1st try! I want to thank you for taking out time to even read this post and visit my blog. You guys really motivate me to keep pushing to be my best self. I started real estate school in September, finished in November, and got my real estate license in December.

I want to encourage someone who might not believe that they have what it takes to achieve success in anything. If you've ever failed in life, like I have many times, you can come back from it. "You can win!" The biggest opponent is the person in the mirror. I'm learning that having a mindset of failure breeds failure. Check out Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Dr. Carol S. Dweck for more on this. My negative mindset oftentimes limited and paralyzed me and next thing you know I'm a year older in the same condition or worse as the year before. But now I'm also learning that a successful mindset is progressive, forever learning, and applying newfound knowledge and skills. This win is just one step in the right direction to achieving my dream of building wealth through real estate. I can't wait to see what happens next and I hope you'll tag along too!

S/O to God who makes all things possible, my lovely wife Tiffany for being so supportive and pushing me to continue, even when I wanted to quit, she wouldn't let me. And the last one goes to my son Caleb. "Daddy loves you so much and there's nothing that I wouldn't do for you to have a better life."

Alright Pennyanos,

Thank you for being the best followers in the world! I'm forever grateful. There's more to come soon :)
