At a time when so much is going on around the world - be kind!
This time in our lives when peoples differing opinions create such catastrophe - be kind!
In every day life, choose the high road. Choose to be kind!
At today's Women's Council of REALTOR® final leadership zoom meeting, a story was told by a realtor who is running for the office of National Treasurer.
Her message reminded me of a time when my daughters were little. One of my daughters was crying and upset for being mistreated by another classmate in school. Taking her by shoulders and dropping to eye level, I told her, "You never know what's going on in that little girls' life. She may have had a bad day or been mistreated herself and she took it out on you. Remember that when you see her again." And then I hugged her and told her everything would be alright.
So the next time someone mistreats you, ask yourself, what is going on in that person's life that is causing them to react as they do?
Whether in your personal life or in real estate, be kind. If an agent acts in any other way but kind, don't overreact. Take a breath, state what you need or the intention of a phone call and wish them a good day. It takes seconds to react so make sure you are reacting positively to what might be an over-reaction or misunderstanding.
