What Goes Around

02520015Never think that you got away with that dirt you did.  
When things begin to fall apart all around you and nothing seems to work,  just before you start screaming why me, why me, why me….. sit back…..take a deep breath…..and think about it. 
 
Because: What Goes Around…..Comes Around. Ouch!!!

Lukewarm

IMG_20140411_085854One of the worst things you can do is sit on the fence.  Sometimes it’s hard to decide which step is the right one or the best one to take.  Sometimes you get stuck in what’s called analysis paralysis, so you don’t do anything.

Not doing anything leads to more frustration and a lot of time wasted.  Weigh your options, make a decision, stick with it….and whatever happens, happens.  Take a leap of faith.  You might be surprised at the final outcome!

 

After all, being wishy-washy is about as bad as drinking lukewarm hot chocolate.  Now there’s a concept! ;-)

They’re Not Your Shoes

02520015It’s okay to work for what you have. It’s not okay simply take (or try to take) what doesn’t belong to you.  Don’t be so lazy!

Get motivated!  Come up with your own ideas, do your own research, write your own paper, forge your own path.  Don’t use others as pawns in a game that only you’re playing.  Operate in integrity.  Stop trying to take the easy way out!  It simply diminishes you.

You’ll soon learn that what you thought was the easy way out was rather hard because you’ve tried to take and tried to wear some big shoes that you will never be able to fill…because they’re not your shoes!! :-/

This is truly my greatest accomplishment!  I know you know what I mean world! :-)

Just Be Honest

02520015Every now and then, I am surprised by the motivations of others.  Surprisingly, there’s always a new surprise!

Someone was referred to me for real estate services.  Would you believe that they ranked my level of professionalism based on their inability to recognize that my emails went into their spam folder?! Interesting right?  I was slammed for being non-responsive until I asked him to check his spam folder.  I got a mild apology but apparently, accepting responsibility for his own error was not this man’s strong suit.

Adding to that, I was labeled slow because it took a day to get a showing appointment scheduled.  It didn’t matter that the seller was unreachable because his cell phone was at home and he was on the lake – according to his agent – and didn’t respond until a day later.  It was still my fault.  Isn’t that interesting?! Apparently, the expectation was to just pick a home, and walk in to see it with or without the owner’s permission.  Hey, what’s wrong with a little trespassing?! So….I was labeled slow.

Lastly, my level of professionalism was challenged because I failed to wine and dine him.  I find it all laughable.

Guess what the end result was – a random man that he met in a hotel said he could find a home for this guy.  LOL!

So, was this man’s entire issue that as a professional WOMAN, I was correcting his human errors?  I only did it in an effort to ensure him that I really am on my A game.  But….again, I remain surprised at the motivation of others.  Later I’m told he is or was a CEO of somewhere.  Big deal! So am I! And guess what….I refuse to belittle myself to feed someone else’s ego….or to sell a home.

I would have preferred that he simply say he didn’t want to work with me because I AM a professional WOMAN.  That’s much better than those lame excuses he threw at me.  Next time…. Just Be Honest!
