Getting stuck is a natural occurrence for Entrepreneurs and Real Estate Professionals - #KeySuccessIdeas - By virtue of being and Independent Contractor you have to push the boundary of the possible, and may end disheartened or let down. What differentiates those who end up thriving versus those who struggle, is how long you linger in that stranded state of being.
One human trait we all have is the ability to create meaning; it helps us assess situations and make sense of them - deep down we are “Meaning Generating Machines.” Anytime something good, bad, or indifferent happens to us, we end up tying it with a bow of meaning; either about ourselves or about others.
We get ourselves in trouble when we take meaning and turn it into an ism. Let’s discuss an example: Say you are in the middle of working on a deal and the agent representing the other side sends you the following text: “my clients walk if they don’t get that counteroffer.” You get this short and curt text and you say to yourself: Well that’s rude. Why didn’t she call me? This is no way of conducting business – very bad manners. And so on… You have created a meaning about the conduct and behavior of that other agent and now locked her in an ism: “She is Rude!”
You have to be very careful with locking people in interpretations; in essence you closed the door on any future way of connecting with that person. Haven’t you been accused of being a certain way, and deep down you know you are not the way that other person paints you?
Let’s talk about Agile Entrepreneurs; they flow and let go of interpretation very quickly. They don’t concern themselves too long with how rude or inconsiderate someone is being to them; they move on very quickly. They avoid, to the best of their ability, to take things personally. They understand that deals come with inherent tension, and they work the friction properly without having to break the strings. They have a profound understanding that as long as we are talking we are making progress towards an agreement. They avoid the need to be righteous, and focus on keeping the deal alive as long as they can. Agile Entrepreneurs do not have fragile Egos; they can handle punches well and keep going.
When you choose to become an entrepreneur you are choosing to collaborate and work with others; not to turn others into you. This does not mean you sully your moral compass, but at the same time you are not the end all be all of moral righteousness. You have to create a balance between you the individual at home, and the negotiator who knows how to play nice with others - even if they don’t like you; and I add to that: even if you don’t like them. And let me give the last words to Dr. Seuss: “So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life is a great balancing act.” - #8WeekSuccess
