A friend just posted this entire message and I thought it was very meaningful. The world is changing. We better change with it.
“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.” – Deepak Chopra
Many of you have a tendency to overreact when people don’t see the world the way you do. You literally can’t cope with it mentally and then you wonder why you struggle so much in your personal life and business.
Your business, like most businesses, is a relationship business! Even when you break down the word into two parts, RELATION and SHIP you can see the broader meaning: A connection between two objects (People) that are always moving (Ship).
It will always be a challenge to connect things that are always moving, but you have to be willing to see how the other side is moving in order to connect with them. For many of you, this is a problem because you don’t know how to connect with the opposing view.
Talking to a lot of people will eventually get you into a situation where you don’t agree with someone. If you’re not comfortable in conflict you won’t be a great success in this business or as a leader…
Every time you walk into a meeting remember that there’s a potential for conflict. How you handle conflict will determine how successful you are in this life and in your business.
