If They Say It Can't Be Done, Then Go Ahead And Do It!

"Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it."

ROBERT A. HEINLEIN

 

 

This is one of my favorite quotes.  I tend to use it with "If there is a will, there is a way."

 

 

Just think about this quote.  If everyone listened to the so called experts, then nothing would have been invented or improved upon, or even discovered. 

 

We would still be sitting by candlelight at night had it not been for the invention of the light bulb. 

 

We would still be riding horses or traveling in carriages, wagons and stagecoaches, if Henry Ford would never have invented the car. 

 

We would not be flying places if the Wright Brothers had not created the flying machine.

 

We would be living in other places overseas had it not been for the expeditions and explorers.  

 

I have had properties that other agents had listed and were unable to sell.  They said the property will not sell.  Guess what, I took up the challenge and was able to sell them.  Maybe it took a little time, but I accomplished it.

 

There is so much more had it not been for people that refused to listen to experts as to it not being possible.

 

So, the next time you hear an expert say "It can't be done," it is possible they didn't try hard enough or go deep enough to accomplish it. Then go ahead, find a way and do it!

The nay-sayers are  just too lazy to make the effort - so they don't want anyone else to do it either. Easier to say it can't be done, then go take a nap.

Good morning, Jeff!

Things get accomplished when you put some effort into it and stay patient.  Sometimes it takes time.

Hi, Mary!

We must always think outside the box.  If it doesn't work one way, then try another.

Excellent post!  I know exactly how you feel. Opened escrow this morning for a couple that I've searched for a home for 3 years.  She is chemically sensitive so there's an entire list of things that can't exist inside a home - never say never!

Good morning, Jan!

Unfortunately in today's society, everyone wants it yesterday.  We all have to learn to be patient.  If we wait, it will happen when the time is right.
