Today there are too many problems that are simply out of our control. For example, when you take a look at the total credit market debt in the United States, including government, corporate and personal debt, the numbers are frankly staggering, which amount to 360 percent of our Gross Domestic Product.
Economically, we can’t really tackle this particular problem when U.S. corporate income tax receipts were down 55% ($138 billion) for the year ending September 30, 2009. Frankly, the fiscal outlook surpasses double-dip recession and mimics “debt super cycle,” a term coined by Bill Gross of Bloomberg.com.
I’ve been on a mini-vacation to decompress from the stresses of life. And while it’s great to get away, conversely, it feels like walking back into a tsunami when returning to the real world.
As a Colorado Springs Realtor, I hear the hardships, share the pain and try to offer constructive, yet optimistic options for those feeling oppressed, especially as this pertains to the real estate market. Yet oftentimes, the discussions go much deeper than real estate as it’s apparent that many people are trying to cope with a myriad of horrendous trials. I want you to know that we, Selley Group, are here for you!
Upon my arrival to Colorado Springs from Laguna, California and when turning on the television after tuning out for a few days, I burst out into laughter because the world’s problems have increased even more within the past few days and are really insurmountable for any man to handle by his own mere abilities.
Overall, the outlook for the American culture is pessimistic. Yet, it’s good to get away to get re-charged because remaining optimistic is our strongest weapon of our mind to nobly stand firm against the worst of times.
Regarding real estate in general, let’s be realistic. People will always buy and sell real estate, though the values and investment projections might change cyclic. Are times tough? Yes. But these times are not the worst that our forefathers have experienced before us. In fact, there are many people still buying and selling Colorado Springs Real Estate.
My advice is two-fold to the following question: So what do you do to overcome the world?
- The only way to overcome the world is to live by faith.
- You can’t fix the ginormous problems of this culture, but you can remain accountable for your personal and professional ways of living.
It’s good to be back. Looking forward to an extraordinary summer!
