Stop Pointing The Finger At Others....Seriously!!

Education & Training with

It is absolutely amazing how many people in this world love to blame others for their misfortunes as opposed to being honest, blaming themselves and doing something about it. It is so much easier for YOU to point the finger at others and then run and hide.

You know who you love to bitch about the rising gas prices and that is to blame for you not being successful, here is a thought....make more money and it will not be an issue. Also, those of you that just love to blame the Lead Generation source for you not being successful with their program when in fact YOU did not use the tools provided and YOU have an improper follow up system to give the leads a fair chance and after a single attempt of contacting the lead YOU give up and say oh that is a bogus lead and that lead generation source sucks, here is a thought....get as many leads as possible, have a proper follow up system and YOU will make more money. Oh and those of you who keep blaming the media and the lending institution and the government and everything/everyone else as the reason why the real estate market has changed instead of embracing it for what it is and rising above all the negativity and making a pile of money.

If you would exert as much energy focusing on your career and doing all the right things to maximize your earning potential as you do bitching and moaning about how you feel everyone has let you down, you would be very successful. You never have anyone to blame but yourself for your successes and your failures!!

It Is What It Is, Get Over It!!

You are absolutely right.  Stop that stinking thinking and get to work!  It is our job to remain positive and to look past the negativity. If we dwell on the negative it just becomes a self fulfilling prophesy!

Hi Rory,

I've always said when you are pointing the finger you have four more pointing at you...  Have a great week.  Michael A. Caruso
