Follow Your Dream With Fixer Upper Houses

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
– Henry David Thoreau

While you pay a price for following your dream, you also pay a price for staying where you are. You lose the opportunity to develop new life-coping skills that help you deal with unexpected crises or joblessness. You may suffer from depression by staying in a debilitating job.

Marsha Sinetar, in To Build the Life You Want, Create the Work You Love, says that excelling at a job that you love could be the best mental health insurance for people who feel depressed or anxious about their work. Americans spend $12.4 billion each year to treat clinical depression.

Do You Have Zest and Gusto?

Science fiction writer Ray Bradbury, in Zen and the Art of Writing, wrote that, “life is short, misery sure, and mortality certain.” Yet, he advocated that as we move along life’s way, and in our work, our lives should be filled with “zest” and “gusto.” With zest and gusto, traveling to the grave, Bradbury vowed to fight injustice, appreciate beauty and encourage children.

Is there enough zest and gusto in your life to fight in-justice, appreciate beauty and encourage children?

What do You Trade Your “Life Energy” For?

We should wisely use the time that we must devote to work. Our working hours constitute at least one-third of our lives during the work week. As Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin point out in Your Money or Your Life, money is what we chose to trade our time, or “life-energy,” for. The authors distinguish between “wants” vs. “needs,” and promote not wasting money on unnecessary consumer goods. Instead, they advocate conscientiously saving money until you reach the point where you can free yourself from the working treadmill.

Fixer Upper Houses was Right for Me

The independence of working with fix-up houses was this type of “right” job for me, and can be for you too. It can be the road to operate a business that develops one’s independence, creativity and imagination. With real estate, you can invest a small amount and gradually accumulate money as both your rental income and equity increase over time.
