This will change your business completely. Learning how to respond to the situations in our business instead of reacting is crucial.
Here's the definition of reacting: To act in response to or under the influence of a stimulus or prompting.
Here's the definition of responding: To react to a stimulus or to a treatment, especially in a favorable way.
Are You Reacting or Responding In Your Business?
Here are some excerpts from a post I read from the Think Difference.
Reacting in action.
When people react, it seems to be defensive. We seem to be at a disadvantage. We are uncomfortable with what is being said or done, and we react.
In our reactions, our emotions take a central role. The hair on our neck stands on end.
We feel our stomach turn. Our face heats up and our defenses are on red alert.
We know reactions when we see it. In fact, some people on the other side will intentionally stoke the fires, especially when they know we will react.
They know if they poke we will coil up and be ready to react in a full way.
There is a downside to reacting.
We let emotions without reason drive us forward.
We lose control. Reacting is sporadic and emotional.
Respond in action.
The difference may be this: Responding is guided less by emotion and more by logic.
Responding may be passive in nature as we are going second in a series. However, a response is more active, and it can change the direction of an interaction.
The upside of a solid response is an engaging conversation, all positive and all civil. We learn. We grow. We listen. We respond. We act forthrightly and from within.
We grow. We listen. We respond. We act forthrightly and from within.
We act forthrightly and from within.
One of the best tips I've heard recently was from Tony Robbins and he said: Change Your Expectations For Appreciation!
We all need to stop reacting and start responding.
Take the emotion out of our prospecting and team building and then stop reacting to everything thing that comes along.
I can tell you from personal experience that you will drive yourself crazy.
Bad Things are going to happen!
Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself. Walter Anderson
Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it. Lou Holtz
If we learn to be divorced from the outcome and not take things personally we will be less likely to react and more likely to respond favorably.
God Bless you all during this Christmas time and the upcoming 2016 year. Much Success and Abundance.
