Termite Inspections For Our Minds

By
Real Estate Agent with Midwest Properties

As Realtors many of us are all too familiar with termites. I have lost a couple of sales because a home was infested with termites. Why are termites so dangerous? After all they are just a small bug, what harm could one little bug do? As I am sure you know, it's not one termite that destroys a house, it's a colony, but a colony is started with just a couple of bugs. If a couple of termites are allowed to penetrate the foundation of a home, a colony will soon arise.

Bad thoughts are a lot like termites. One bad thought will not take you down. The problem is, if you let one bad thought in, then one leads to another, then another. Soon you have your own colony of bad thoughts. It will not take long for a colony of bad thoughts to begin munching away at the foundation of your life.

Food for your bad thoughts is available every where. Our morning news is a breakfast for the termites of our minds. "Three dead today in a triple homicide" touts the smiling news person. Followed by "Our housing market is tumbling faster than Brittney's career". The amazing thing with the news is that many Americans start their days with the news, and end their days with the news. I guess bad thoughts need their dinner too.

It is no wonder that America is one of the most wealthy nations of the world, yet our depression rates are skyrocketing, and our health is tumbling more rapidly than ever. So many Americans are being eaten alive by the termites of their minds. I think it's time to send in the termite inspector for the mind, that inspector is awareness.

We need to pay attention to. the things that we pay attention to. We need to start a bad thought extermination program. By taking the food from the bad thoughts, soon the bad thoughts will realize that they need to go someplace else if they want to eat. What are you feeding your mind? Are you starting your days with the breakfast of champions, or with 2 homicides over easy, and a side order of doom?

Yuck Yuck, I hate bugs, and I have seen more then my share of them.  I know what to look for in termite inspecting though, and i am not a inspector, but I can help buyers not waist their money writing a offer on a termite trap of a home only to back away after paying for a termite inspection.

Great post Eric.  This was a good analogy.  Our thoughts are so important and it is very easy to get sloppy about what we concentrate on.  Thanks for this reminder & for posting this to Fraiche Aire.
