Check out how many e-mails you get with the word “worry” in them. Now I know that most of the time we use it in our general conversation. But worry can be chronic and we all do it at some time. In the real estate business we worry about all the details of listing a property, we worry if it will ever sell, we worry if the buyer and seller will ever come to terms, we worry if it will ever close, and most of all we worry if we’re going to make enough money.
The reason “worry” is so insidious is that most of time the things that we worry about are rarely worth worrying about. Corry Ten Boom best described it with this word picture: Worry is an old man with bended head, carrying a load of feathers which he thinks are lead.
So pick up your head and put a bounce in your step because no matter how big the load you seem to be carrying….it’s probably only a load of feathers.
