Speaking Real Estate DOOM?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Rice Prprty Mgmnt & Rlty, LLC, South Holland, IL 481.010183

Ever hear someone say....

  • My feet are killing me..
  • I'm just dying to see ____________                      
  • I think i'm coming down with the flu                                            
  • I think i'm catching a cold!
  • The Real Estate Market is BAD!!

Now, in visualizing the above, can you imagine a pair of feet taking hold around someones neck and strangling them?  How about going to see a favorite singer, and after taking a look, just dropping down dead!  Imagine running as hard as you can to catch up with the fast-as-lightening-moving common "cold"?  Have you seen the Real Estate Market standing in the corner with a dunce cap on it's head waiting to get paddled?  

Did you not know that death and life has been left in the power of the tongue?  What you SPEAK has power!  Creative Power!  Every time you open your mouth to speak... it's either death or life coming out!  Even if you're just thinking it.... it will come out eventually!  (Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks!)  Did you not know that you can HAVE what you say??  Mark 11:23

Our Creator, created EVERYTHING by SPEAKING first.... HE said, "Let there be".... and it was!  HE has given us an example, and passed that authority on to emulate HIM.  Did you not know you have power to turn things around??  If the industry is saying a thing..... DON'T SPEAK WHAT YOU HEARD.... DO NOT LINE UP YOUR THOUGHTS WITH WHAT YOU SEE!!  Instead try speaking words of faith.... CALL THOSE THINGS THAT BE NOT.... AS THOUGH THEY WERE..... and choose not to allow contrary influences to take you off your PURPOSE..... no matter how things look! 

LOOK UP! Speak life!  Use your creative GOD-given power to turn a negative mindset unto a victorious outcome!

You Go Girl! Just like faith without works is dead, words without action are meaningless. We need to change our mindset and focus on the positive.

Diane, that picture is POSITIVELY scaring me! LOL!!

Diane we tend to produce according to our attitude, so if that attitude is negative we will produce negative results, but if our attitude is positive we will produce positive results.  I don't know about everyone else, but I want to be positive about what is a head instead of complaining about what is already behind me.

George:  Yes, a negative attitude comes from stinking thinking which breeds complaints!  We're so blessed to have acquaintances here on Active Rain who are positive thinkers as yourself!! 

Another good thing about YOU.... i've noticed when you see a Rainer get cranky, you will go out of your way to write something to make them laugh at themselves!

Alex:  It's all good my brother!  Welcome back!  "You shall KNOW the truth... and the truth that you know will MAKE YOU free!"  As we accept truth, we become liberated from falsehoods (lies we've believed all our lives).

Diane, I needed this this morning. The tongue is so important and can set on fire a forest. For good or evil. I'll take good.

Ray!  You know, since i've gotten a chance to learn of you here on Active Rain, i've observed you in DEMONSTRATION of what i've just written here, even with your recent post, Buyers: All Sellers Are NOT Desperate!  It attests to your belief, and announces out LOUDLY that you will NOT SPEAK DOOM!!

Continue in the Spirit Ray!

Diane!  Thanks for the feature, i'm honored!  But remember, GOD's WORD is always on time, even if we read it later than it's written.  So good to have you back! 

You must have a huge amount of reading to do...  i pray that you will not become overwhelmed, but that you'd find the time to read what you should, comment where you're led, and bypass everything else, amen.

Diane, the power of the spoken word is such a powerful thing. Like you said, everything God began he spoke into existence. This really goes along with sowing and reaping, and when it comes to life, business, family, relationships we need to remember and be conscious of the seeds that we are planting with our speech.

Stephen!  Well said! And when the power erupts from our mouths there is no receeding... it goes into action.... that's why it's better to NOT TO SAY a thing rather than say a thing and regret it!  GOD's Word does not return unto HIM void, but it accomplishes HIS purpose... as like you said, we also should know that we too will have to give an account of the words we speak!  

I for one am looking forward to hearing more of YOUR words!  Thanks for contributing some wise ones.

Sis. Diane, you've said it all. There is nothing else I can add except I agree.

It's all about renewing the mind. When we change the way we think we change what flows from our hearts through our mouths.

Toni!  Amen!  If only we'd THINK first .... and what should we think on??  Whatsoever is true, lovely, honest, whatsoever be of a good report!....  We have been hearing stinking thinking.... and what a man thinks, he becomes!!  Now, if we'd acknowledged GOD before uttering.... we'd speak what HE speaks! 

Thanks for stopping in!  I'm off on a sabbatical for a bit... been overdosing!  Blessings to you!
