Right & Wrong

Real Estate Agent with Metro West Realty GA RE#258608


When is the right thing the wrong thing? The answer is more often than I’d like to think.


There are times when I’m right and the way I handle being right is really wrong. I really come off as a “know it all” and an arrogant person.  If I carry this attitude that I’m smarter and better than you; you’ll be repulsed by my behavior. I think it’s wise to take a step back and check out how I’m being perceived.


As a child of God – do I act better than others?

As a husband – do I frustrate my wife?

As a dad – do I exasperate my children?

As a REALTOR – do I talk down to my clients?


I think one of the toughest challenges of life is to communicate with clarity to all the people in my life. I don’t ever want to be perceived as a “wise guy”. I want to be perceived as a trusted friend and confidant. I want to be kind and wise.


I want to say the right thing when the time is right!


Pressing On!

Nice topic, Dwayne!   We like to think that we are approaching matters in the "right way", due to various reasons.  One thing that I am doing to improve myself and become better at assisting others, is to remove the "EGO"!  It does not necessarily mean, "my way or the highway".  MORE, of doing those things that I believe might seem very uncomfortable for me to do, in order to generate leads or help others!  Other words, get out of the box and remove that "ego" stopping you from success!!

Thanks Dan - I really think Zig Ziglar had it right - "If I can help enough other people get what they want, then I'll get what I want". (my paraphrase)


Have a great week!
