EGO eliminates growth opportunities

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives

Too often we come across people who are a "legend in their own mind". It drives me nuts, because these same people view themselves as superior but lack compassion. Compassion for those who have different ideas, opinions, values, gifts and talents. These differences are what makes the world go round.

When someone asks you a question, don't criticize them for the question; applaud the fact that they sought an answer from you. This person could teach you a thing or two, if you invested just a little time in getting to know them better.

We should work harder to keep from drawing conclusions or judgments about people and their behaviors. We're eliminating our growth opportunities.

  Being defensive about your listing...Yes but....take the ideas or lack of interest constructively....ego sometimes does not allow for having it be "all about the agent"  moove forward...good thoughts !

Couldn't agree with you more Chris.  Can't wait for some of these folks to finish their speeches so we can get down to business.

Sally & David - Funny thing is I didn't even think of it in terms of "defensive about your listing" - Such a great point! Have a Great day!
