Pet Peeve

I know that this is going to ruffle a lot of feathers on this board, and that is okay.....




I am reading forum after forum of people whining, it is driving me crazy!  This is supposed to be a place to learn and educate others.  What I find is a lot of bellyaching.  You would think that we are kids in a schoolyard and someone just stole your ball.


There are no secrets to this business.  The paths to get in vary, but there is one common denominator, HARD WORK.


No one handed anyone anything.  Especially if you are a newbie.  I bet if every person that has assets shared how they received those assets, it would be through hard work.  Tenacity, persistence, goals, I don't know......WORK!


Stop your bellyaching and get working.  Somewhere there is a crack that you can slip through and get that coveted prize of an reo listing.  Stop being the normal Joe Blow realtor who wants to be a great realtor, but will not do the work to get it.


My mother always taught me that when you are pointing your finger at someone else, there are more of your own fingers pointing back at you.  If what you are doing is not working, try something else. Otherwise, you are living in insanity.  Isn't that the definition?  To keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.


There are many suggestions on this forum and others.  Take the time, read the directions, the answers are there, I promise.


There is not a person in this forum that is not capable.  Take a look inside and see what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong and then try some change.

  • We all have ups and downs - we have to remember to be positive and carry on, just like in this quote from Lance Armstrong.

    Same in this business, if it doesn't go perfect the 1st time - give 110 the next - you are already ahead of the game, you know what went wrong before. Doesn't do you or anyone else any good complaining about it. NOTE: asking a question for explanation is a whole new ball game
    • I am not trying to be difficult but isn't this thread kinda of whining... LOL..... Just joking I hope everyone is having a great st patty's day.....
  • I was told at a very early age, "There's no such thing as a free lunch". Means alot, especially in this business (I find that out courting my wife as well!)
  • I agree with everybody, as with the poster. Thanks, and I am not sure anybody but those of us who share this "peeve" will read it. LOL!

    I tried to express this very concern yesterday in a general and (I intended) magnanimous way, and it just turned into a NEW big and dumb discussion.

    Social media is, for better or for worse, organic, and hard to control. What we love about it is that very thing. Yet, it's also what we don't like: the dilution of a good thing with people who just wanna get in and say *something.*

    I guess we take it or leave it.
  • Agreed, and I would add that there should be a way to "pin" threads at the top of this forum. The very first thing that should be pinned is an Absolute REO Solutions thread. There does not need to be 20 threads discussing that company and whether you have gotten anything from them...

    I love this site, but I feel it is being weighed down by redundancy and cynicism.
  • I am not saying that the forums are not, there are just certain ones that all they do is whine. I am saying, try something different and you may get some success!
  • I'm with you on the WHINING, but majority of posts, blogs, groups and forums on REOpro are uplifting, they brings huge information, network and support for agents like me. I'm speaking for myself.
  • LOL. ahahhaha. awesome and I agree. I have no magic sauce to give you, just what my dad told me ever since I was 3. "Work hard and don't mess up my good name."
