A Is For Acceptance

And A Whole Lot More. . 

 

In my time here, I have written about all sorts of “A” related-words.  We definitely meet many type A people in real estate and real life but today I am thinking of acceptance. 



I have already addressed Attitude and AdjustmentAnomalies, Alliteration and Adjectives as well. A trip to the area where quotes on many subjects live and seemingly thrive can lead to many words of wisdom.  But are they too much?  Too this or too that?  And isn’t acceptance found when we go beyond that?  I wonder. . .

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - and that's more than acceptable.  

 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - I am sure you can provide an All-Star performance in the that activity.

 

Nina Hollander, Broker - Wild about Wilde?   I know my admiration runs deep.  Such wit, cleverness and certainly knew how to capture a moment.  I imagine he would be an interesting cocktail party guest.

Happy Sunday, Michael- Acceptance is a broad word. Often we are asked to accept the situation as it is. With people, and especially friends, we try to accept them... flaws and all.

Michael, sometimes there is not much else we can do but accept?    Walk away?   Not an option many times.

Morning Michael.

While everyone wants to be accepted, there is a time in ones life where they don't care.  If people accept you for being you, you've won on more than one count.

Good morning Michael, no one is perfect, everyone has flaws, but if you enjoy being around a person, acceptance is acceptable.

Endre Barath, Jr. - as a real estate practitioner, when you hear "an offer has been accepted" - it can be the start of something quite special and it's likely going to be a lesson in some ways.  

 

James Dray - acceptance is one of those words where definitions matter.  And, actually, definitions always matter.  Along with context, circumstances and situations.  And that's just for starters. . .

 

Joan Cox - I have long accepted that perfection is not attainable.  

 

Wendy Rulnick - I "see" or is it "C" what you did there.

I really believe that acceptance could cure the world's problems if we as humans could just be more accepting. Accepting of everything....skin color, sexual preference, religion...all of it. 

Just let everyone be.

Sharon Tara - could it be that simple?  It seems complication of all kinds comes to the forefront in many situations.

Hmmmm. Acceptance can be a great attribute. It can also be one to fight (like say the acceptance of Hitler by Chamberlin in WWII).

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - history shows many examples.  Of what has gone right.  And gone "off" into other directions.   Lessons are like that too.

Acceptance is something this entire world needs ot work on, Michael! It's relevancy means more than just the definition - it cuts to the mind, soul, spirit.

In real estate lingo, that is one of my favorite words - especially in this world of multiple Offers!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - you're right the definition goes far beyond the dictionary in the real world.  

 

Of course, it's an excellent start to a real estate conversation/transaction but it is followed by a process that can be met with many detours from that accepted origination point.
