I'm sure you have heard that you should "Think Before You Speak". No doubt some adult told you that when you were young and hopefully, it stuck in your mind and became part of your actions. Maybe you were not blessed with such great wisdom, however. I find today there are many people who let their emotions control their mouths.
Is that you? If so, it is costing you business.
I recently have had several examples come to my attention in my business. Of course, I let this happen to myself from time to time. We all do. We all mess up. I am thinking of an email one of my agents recently sent. It was not bad just more negative than it should have been. Always write on the positive side and you will do much better.
About a month ago, I was discussing an issue with another broker, and that broker allowed emotions to take over. The decision she made at the time was bad. Now she must pay the consequences. If she had only taken a little time to think about it, she may have made a better decision.
Don't let this happen to you. There is always time to think. There are ways to buy the time, so that tempers can cool, time can pass and things may seem totally different in a few hours or a few days. Give yourself time to think. The decisions you make may be the same or they may be different with time, but in every case, you will know you made the best decision when you take the time to think before you speak.
