Why Worry - It Will Either Close Or It Won't Close

As real estate agents, we are champion worriers - we worry about everything; will it appraise, will it pass inspection, will the loan be approved, will it CLOSE?

I was shopping and saw this magnet in one of my favorite stores.  Worry doesn’t really help out any situation so this makes sense.

Worry quotesHere are a few more quotes aboutworry from brainyquote.com.

Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due. William Ralph Inge

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust. Samuel Ullman

Don't worry so much about your self-esteem. Worry more about your character. Integrity is its own reward.  Laura Schlessinger

I worry that the person who thought up Muzak may be thinking up something else.  Lily Tomlin

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.  Charles M. Schulz

 

And, we all know “Don’t worry, Be Happy”

 As a wise person told me when I first started: Why worry - it will either close or it won’t close.

We worry anyway: it's our job.

I really like the proverb "Worry is like a rocking chair. It will give you something to do, but won't get you anywhere"...actually it will get me to sleep!

Joanna - that's why we really shouldn't worry. It does nothing but make us sick.

Fernando - you're right. It has an effect on our health too.

Mickey is a wise woman, Roger!

Joan - I think for some of us it's the nuture thing at work.

Sheila & Larry - the rocking chair relaxes me so I can sleep so I understand what you're saying.

Kristin - I like it too because I like rocking chairs too. Happy Birthday.

Toni: Thanks for sharing all the quotes!  I like the "Either it'll close or it won't" one the best.  It reminds me of a Chinese proverb my dad is fond of saying: "If there's no alternative, there's no problem."

Worry, Worry, Worry, what about the appraisal? this is probably the one thing I do worry about but in today's markets their is usually another buyer just around the corner. I wish I didn't worry so much....guilty

Andrew - I like that one too!

Anita - me too. I had an incident the other day with a seller and worried all that night.

Bob - definitely the appraisals are a problem these days. One never knows what will be. I wish I didn't worry so much. 

Karen - wow, long time for worrying! I'm sure I'll always be one too.

Love it, Toni. Why worry? Don't worry, Be Happy. Used to play that song all the time. Maybe that is why I started the group Do Not Worry ~ Today.

If the problem still exists tomorrow . . . Well we worry about it tomorrow . . . Maybe.

thanks for the congrats, too.

Hi Toni, seems it is human nature to worry...all it does is gives us stress which is so unhealthy...wouldn't it be great if there was a pill for worry :)

It sure can, Dale.

Tom - nope, me either. Action solves problems.

Mary - Oh, now I will have an ear worm for days to come. You sound like Scarlett: I'll worry about it tomorrow.

Debbie - I worry and then I go do something else to take my mind of it. Sleep is nice.

Rebecca - yes, it does seem that way. A pill for worry--wonderful.

Toni~ the title of your blog caught my eye and instantly made sense. No need to worry about it, either the transaction will close or it won't as long as I know I have done my best.

Thanks, Frank, that's true.

Wayne and Jean - but can you really control it?

Kristal - exactly, do what you can but then it's up to other outside influences.
