How To Deal With Annoying People
by Leander McClain, Realtor
If you are looking for a quick and easy solution, stop reading now. What I am going to tell you is not easy to implement, but it is effective.
As we go throught life, we all come across some annoying people. If you are a Realtor and you have never encountered an annoying person.....it may be because the annoying person is you. But I digress. So how do you deal with these annoying people? The easiest way is not to deal with them at all. Walk away from the situation, get some air, do something that you enjoy. I am typically not the best Realtor for every person that walks into my office. And that is ok. In order for us to work together, you must trust me, like me and want to work with me. If all of that is true, you won't annoy me. But I digress once again.
IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE TO AVOID ANNOYING PEOPLE
Especially if you are in a business where you constantly deal with the public. So Leander, what do I do?
Put yourself in the shoes of the annoying person. Most people who are annoying have no clue that they are annoying. Life deals all of us harsh blows at times. An annoying person may be dealing with a situation which causes them to act the way they do. That is not your fault.
Focus on the needs of the annoying person. Say something like "it looks like you are having a bad day, is there something that I could do to make things better". It does not matter what business you have with them. The fact that you took the time to notice they may have an issue will go a long way.
Excuse yourself from the situation. Say something like this..."if now is not a good time, maybe we can meet at another time or place that would be better for you. Again, you are focusing on the needs of the annoying person.
The key is to take the focus off of yourself
This is not easy to do. Annoying people aggravate, upset and irk you. This happens because you are focusing on how they make you feel. Once you take the focus off of you, I believe the results will change drastically. Try it and tell me what you think.
Have A Great Day
Make This Your Best Year Ever
