bout a month ago, I asked someone a question about a particular situation that affected a client I was assisting. Their response was so negative and to make matters worse, the person responded with a condescending tone and never answered the question. I responded back to the person out of frustration which didn’t help the client at all, it just delayed things even longer. Then it dawned on me. Even though that individual had a patronizing attitude , I still had a choice in the matter to not allow anyone to dictate my response. As a mother of 5 children, I always remind them that even though they may be right about something, how they respond could cause the situation to end up not favorable on their behalf. I couldn’t wait to share that experience with my younger children. Afterall, if I expected them to respond a certain way , then I needed to remember to practice what I preach, right? It was a lesson well learned.
Life doesn’t just happen to you. It’s all about CHOICES and how you respond to every situation
