Beware the "doomies"...they show up all the time!

Services for Real Estate Pros with "A Quick Note" Tennessee! Expires May 16, 2023

It seems that no matter what the circumstance, doomsayers show up with their little dark rain-cloud in tow overhead, to sprinkle doom and gloom all about.

"Rates are going up", "Prices are climbing", "We haven't seen the bottom yet", "Financing takes forever", "You'll get less for your money", "The sky is falling"-sound familiar?

They find it necessary to tell us all how bad things are, how bad things have been and are always sure to predict a future full of doom and gloom.  These are sad-sacks, miserable in their own little lives and determined to ruin everything that they can.  They are cut from the same cloth as the aggressive paparazzi, the gossip columnist and the 2nd grade tattle-tale.  Also fitting neatly in this category are inattentive real estate agents, predatory lenders and untruthful mortgage brokers [or is that an oxymoron?].    

The best revenge is to live your life successfully, out loud and on your own terms.  Give those jerks a big grin and an "up yours" with every success you have.  You can prove them wrong by showing off the things in your life that are good and right and positive.  Never let them see you matter how much pressure they apply.  

While they linger in the mud you will not.  Treat them with all of the same disdain they hold for you.  Never be a tool for them or become their weapon of mass destruction.  See the glass as half-full.  Believe the best will happen and it will.  The power of positive thinking is an unbelievably powerful concept.

I constantly fight against the doomsayers.  The ones predicting a double-dip recession or use carte blanche statements that home prices are dropping everywhere usually get my ire up.  Our markets are doing great in Silicon Valley.  I'm with you, we need to beat the drums of good news over the constant drone of the doomsayers.

Thanks Bryan! It seems ironic that they show up no matter what the situation is: During peak earnings, during a recession or during a recovery.

It's always easier to pile on the negative than to create something positive.

Sometimes, I just have to turn off the can be the worst and the doomsayers just spread!

Unfortunately, sometimes the doomsayers are right, and ignoring them is not always a good thing. You have to know what the problems are before you can do something about them
