Is the glass half full or half empty? It is all in your perspective... in these difficult times for the mortgage professionals and realtors... it is more important than ever to remain professional and positive... this includes all the things we say, email, fax etc... It also means we should network with those who bring positive things to our industry... There is no question there is some rough times still ahead... lets all remain strong and help each other... support your fellow active rain members...

Welcome back, see you took a short break? It has been a more difficult year for mortgage brokers, and brokers too!

It's very important to keep this concept in mind.  I'm generally a very optimistic person, but I must say, this market has sprouted some half empty thoughts in me.  Thanks for the reminder.

There are three tacks to take...

1) half-empty...negative, draining, hopeless, etc.  This is not a good tack to take.

2) half-full...positive, potentially delusional because there are some harsh realities that exist.

3) Room for 50% growth!  This acknowledges the opportunity for expansion and increase AS well as the crappy realities--the Stockdale paradox.

I choose #3.

Rick,

Good post.  I try to keep my glass 3/4 full :) .  The more full it is now, the more we will have to fill it with later.

Dan, you begin this idea to a whole new level

About 1/4 full. Hopefully the leak is plugged and some "Active Rain" will help.

It really helps to keep positive people around you both in the workplace and at home.  I really don't like being around negative people
