Every aspiring person in wealth creation with real estate investing should imprint the great words of wisdom written by an unknown writer on land. I hope and pray that they leave a deep impression your mind as they did on mine.
Who Am I?
I am the basis of all wealth, the heritage of the wise, the thrifty and prudent.
I am the poor person’s joy and comfort, the rich person’s prize, the right hand of capital,
The silent partner of thousands of successful people.
I am the solace of the widow, the comfort of old age, the cornerstone of security against misfortune and want.
I am handed down through generations, as a possession of great value.
I am the choicest fruit of labor, the safest collateral and yet I am humble.
I stand before every person bidding them to know me for what I am and asking them to possess me.
I am quietly growing in value through countless days.
Though, I might seem dormant, my worth increases, never failing, never ceasing.
Time is my aid and the ever increasing population adds to my gain. I defy fire and the elements, for they cannot destroy me.
My possessors learn to believe in me and invariable they become envied by those that have passed me by.
While all other things wither and decay, I alone survive.
The centuries find me younger, always increasing in strength.
All oil and minerals come from me.
I am the producer of food, building materials and the home to every living thing.
I serve as the foundation for homes, factories, banks and stores.
I have not been produced for millions of years, yet, I am so common that thousands,
Unthinking and unknowingly, pass me by.
Who am I? “I AM Land.”
