My Own Personal Weltanschauung!
To be honest, I’ve never had a grand scheme of my guiding principles or philosophy for my business, let alone consider a world view of my meager efforts to make a living in Real Estate. However, this month, Patricia Kennedy has challenged us to take a deep look inside ourselves and come up with our own Weltanschauung.
First and foremost my philosophy in this business as in other aspects of my life is to be honest. Whether it’s a client, co-worker, family or friend there’s just no place for dishonest in this world. And, unfortunately I see just too much of it today.
Then, I want to make sure that I treat everyone fairly. Simply put. To live by the golden rule and treat everyone the same as I would want to be treated.
I want to make sure that I don’t rush to judgment and make an effort to understand the views that I don’t necessarily agree with, and to respect others’ right to have that opinion.
Finally, I continue to strive to not speak badly of those that I don’t agree with. We all have a right to our opinion and if we are to grow both emotionally as well as financially, we must all learn to understand each other and compromise.
I’d like to say that I follow my world view at all times, but that would be a lie. It’s still a work in process that I continue to strive to fulfill.
