Are You a Butterfly or a Caterpillar?

Posted on April 9, 2012 by

Caterpillar or ButterflyIt can be argued that a butterfly and a caterpillar are one and the same.  OK, maybe they are – but not at the same time!  It’s one or the other – but not both!  So, which are you?

As real estate investors, we all start off the same – as caterpillars.  We just know the basics: how to crawl, eat leaves and poop.  Our world is limited to the tiny branch we’re clinging to.  We’re not much to look at, and we’re preyed upon by just about every creature in the animal kingdom.  Our life expectancy is about 12 seconds.

Now here’s the thing: God didn’t mean for caterpillars to stay caterpillars.  He meant for them to grow and develop into beautiful, high-flying, far-traveling butterflies…but only those that are hardworking and resourceful get to complete the journey from caterpillar to butterfly.
