Fuel Your Opinion with Facts


"The fewer the facts, the stronger the opinion."


Psychologist, Arnold Glasgow

Your action for today is 

to see if you can gather some additional facts

about a strong opinion you have.


Political Facts

Racial Facts

Health Facts

Market Facts

Other ? Facts


...all seem to be lacking in 2020 and causing people to behave out of fearful click-bait

and headlines, rather than on factual, researched information.


Jim Rohn used to say "Be a student, not a follower; do your own research, form your own opinion." Zig Ziglar used to say fear is...







What about in real estate? Do you think some of your clients

are on the fence or on hold due to fear?

Maybe it is time to arm them with facts about their market?

When you empower yourself or your clients with facts

you reconnect them with their goals and motivation.


Design an extraordinary day & weekend!

It seems to be getting tougher and tougher to determine what is fact and what is fiction in the world.

I think that many are too lazy to dig for facts, because it takes time to find the truth.  Having had parents who were steeped in research (my mother was a food research head librarian, and my father was a civil engineer and a professor) facts ruled.  And they had to be credible and from credible sources, which these days are far and few.  A

Excellent post Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets . I think the problem today is we can find "experts" on the extreme end of all things and most people only investigate the "experts" that reflect their own opinion, thus nothing changes.

Hi Thomas... this issue of fear or opinion that's not based on facts is something that's been around a long time... right now it is especially relevant. I've come across a lot of people whose entire attitude in life is "don't confuse me with the facts."

Hello Thomas - it seems many say phooey to fact-finding as evidenced by the increasing number of scientists and medical experts in recent times.  Of course, finding opinions on the current real estate market in ANY location at ANY time, is fair game that has a long history.   Right?
