YOU MAY BE RIGHT

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart

Has there ever been a time when you knew you were right and the other person just wanted to continue to argue with you that they were right and you were wrong? 

Years ago I learned this technique and it could save you some money, a friendship, a relationship, and make you look better. The key is to understand you do not have to always be right even if you are right. 

Understand when you say you may be right you are not admitting that the other person is right and you are wrong, but to the other person, they may feel more like you are admitting you are wrong and they are right and that can end the day with feathers not being ruffled. 

You can use this with the spouse relatives friends, or clients, there is no limit.

I hope your day is as great as mine.

Good morning Dan. You can never stop trying to disagree without being disagreeable. It's an art that requires daily practice. Enjoy your day.

Hi Dan- well said. We have to ask our ego just how important it is to prove we are right to someone even when we know that we are right.

If we stay away from discussing politics, we can still be friends with our friends and family and counselors to our clients without having to insist that we are right and they are wrong.
