Invest Without A Timeline
One of the most negative things I believe you can do is invest on a deadline. I don't care if you are investing $10,000.00 or $100,000,000.00 if you invest quickly for the shear purpose of fear of loosing the deal or missing the "tide" the deal is probably not right for you. You need time to acknowledge that this is right within yourself, not what the outside world is telling you. If the deal passes their will be another and it wasn't meant to be, that is the beauty about deals there will always be one. Just because a deal has to close quickly doesn't mean its right for you so positive investing is allowing yourself to be in the flow and not being rushed into something. If your belief and positivity isn't in the deal from the start it probably isn't right. So remember be positive and the deals will work themselves out, the right ones. Patience is a great virtue and signal to the universe that you are focused and know what you want. It translates to your positive investing as well. So relax and breathe the deals will come and you will invest. It is more important to find the right deal for yourself than be in the wrong deal for someone else. Stay true to yourself and your confidence and think without a timeline, you may feel you are missing the tied today but the natural cycle of business will present a better opportunity in that same vertical 5-7 years from now. Forget a timeline for investing and look at as many deals as possible and know what is right for yourself first.
