Social Media is Not the Place to Solve Disagreements

Social Media Disagreements Wisdom Wednesday Real Estate Small Business Coach Jeremy Williams

Written By: Coach Jeremy Williams

Disagreements don’t get solved on social media. In fact, engaging in disagreement on social media only furthers the gap that already existed between the two parties. In addition, engaging in disagreement only attracts other individuals to the person that carries the same values, thoughts, and belief systems thus creating a larger divide beyond the two that had the disagreement (a my camp and your camp scenario).

Why do I write this? As with everything I write, it reflects a personal experience or shared experience through coaching conversations that is a reminder, and at times, a learning experience.

What is the best way to resolve a disagreement? In my opinion, the best way to resolve a disagreement is to address it with that person directly, not on social media (you’re not changing their mind), and in way that is respectful. Also it is okay to disagree.

If the person is not respectful about your side of the agreement, that’s a blog post for another day.

If You Think You Can, You’re Right

If you think you can or think you can't, youu're right. Henry Ford

“Whether you think you can or think your can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

Having 1000’s of hours of coaching conversations over the years, it is amazing the power of the mind. What I hear and see a lot of individuals struggle with is their own thoughts. It is the simple belief of can or can’t that can separate those that are average and those that are great.When you speak into your mind that you can’t do something, you’ve already lost the battle.

I can’t make that phone call.

I can’t have that conversation.

I can’t stick to my schedule.

I can’t…

“I can’t” becomes even more problematic when you add the word “because”.

I can’t make that phone call because I don’t know what to say.

I can’t have that conversation because I believe the outcome will be “x”.

I can’t stick to my schedule because “Coach Jeremy, you don’t understand what’s happening in my world.

“When you think I can’t, you’re right.

Now switch the above to “I can” statements.

I can make that phone call.

I can have that conversation.

I can stick to my schedule.

Notice the shift in your energy when you speak into your mind an “I can” statement. Now make them more powerful with attaching an “I am” statement.

I can make that phone call because I am bringing value to the person on the other end of the line that no one else can provide.

I can have that conversation because I am confident in being able to help my clients solve a program.

I can stick to my schedule because I am organized and efficient in the way I conduct myself.

When you think you can, you’re right.

Make today a day that you switch your thinking to “I can”, and watch the results that come your way. You are powerful. You have the opportunity to shape your mindset to allow you to do powerful things both in life and business.

Today, I had the honor to interview one of my coaching clients, Danae Wheat, Owner of OnPoint Transactions LLC; a real estate transaction coordination company providing support for Texas licensed real estate agents. One of my big takeaways from the conversation was how much time she is saving agents that utilize her services so that they can focus on dollar productive business activities.

I know I strongly urge my real estate coaching clients that one of the first hires they need to make, sooner than later, is a transaction coordinator. The benefit of utilizing a transaction coordination company like OnPoint Transactions LLC is that the charge is per transaction. You don’t have to concern yourself with payroll, taxes, training, etc. Watch the full interview here.

The 5 Stages of Grief – Acceptance

5 stages of grief acceptance

Written By: Coach Jeremy Williams

Loss is something we all deal with in life. Last week, many Texans had extensive property damage from busting pipes which also led to the loss of irreplaceable family heirlooms, there is the loss of loved ones, broken relationships, financial challenges, and much more. Understanding the stages provides knowledge, and applied knowledge is power. This week we’ve walked through the 5 Stages of Grief including Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and finally today is Acceptance.

Acceptance doesn’t mean the pain automatically goes away. Acceptance means that at last we’re at a point of acknowledging the reality of the loss/challenge. In this stage of the grieving process, we’ve made the conscious decision to no longer make the loss something different than it actually is to us.

Sadness and regret may continue to be present, yet not at the expense of denial, anger, bargaining, and depression. This is not to say remnants from these stages may not linger, yet they will begin to fade and be less prominent.

Know that everyone walks through these stages differently. Some will sink deeper into one stage and breeze past another. Some may move through a stage, and then revert back to a previous stage. Understanding the stages can help in dealing with our emotions, and know that you don’t have to do it alone, and in some cases, professional help should be sought. (By the way, seeking help is a sign of strength and not weakness.)

I trust that walking through these stages over the course of the week has helped someone. If you know someone that might need this information, this series of posts are on my blog at redhawkcoaching.com. If you do need help, here is a resource.

The 5 Stages of Grief – Depression

5 Stages of Grief Depression

Written By: Coach Jeremy Williams

In my last post, we looked at the third Stage of Grief; Bargaining. Today we look at Depression.

Depression is the point at which we begin to understand the reality of the loss. Bargaining no longer provides a sense of control over the situation, and now reality sets in.

In this stage, the loss we experienced can create amplified emotions. The fog of the loss that was created in the first 3 stages begins to subside, and the feeling of loss rises to the surface. The loss is a reality, and in this stage we’ve come to realize that we can no longer avoid the reality.

Like bargaining, we shift our thinking inward, and the feeling of sadness becomes more prevalent. In these situations, we may remove ourselves from social situations, and will close ourselves off to those we love and trust. Though this is a natural progression, depression is isolating.

If you find yourself in this stage, you’re not alone. Seek help. If you’re unaware of local resources in your area, reach out to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and they can assist you with a treatment referral and provide you with contact information for local services. Contact 1-800-662-4357. They are available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Tomorrow will focus on the final stage of Acceptance.

5 Stages of Grief Bargaining

Written By: Coach Jeremy Williams

I’ve addressed the first 2 stages of the 5 Stages of Grief, Denial and Anger in earlier posts, today we move into the 3rd Stage of Grief; Bargaining.

When dealing with a loss whether it was property damage from the Texas storm, a loved one, going separate ways after a longtime friend, or any other challenge life throws our way, goal number one is to minimize the pain that comes from that loss. Dealing with a loss can cause us to look for alternative solutions to cope and avoid the pain. Bargaining is typically calling on a higher power, or calling upon something bigger that can change the outcome of the perceived loss. Listening to our gut, a realization sets in that more than likely there is nothing that will change the outcome for the better. That small, still voice in our head reminds us of the reality.

That feeling of not being able to influence the outcome to our benefit leads to bargaining, and bargaining gives a sense of control over the situation. Bargaining turns us looking inward at our own personal contribution to the situation and/or regrets. We start looking at the roadmap of the relationship with someone or the situation being faced with that is a challenge. Questions like the following may begin to form in your head.

Why did I lose touch with this individual over the years?

Why was I not prepared like I should have been to protect my property and family from a situation?

Haven’t you heard or personally experienced bargaining like “God if only XXXXXX, I will turn my life around.”

In this stage, we will recall situations in which we’ve maybe not been the nicest person, or we’ve taken an action that led to hurting someone else; even if it was completely unintentional. We wish we had that magic time machine to go back and create a better outcome. We begin to form absurd assumptions that if something happened differently in the past, we would not be experiencing the pain of today.

Tomorrow and Friday, we will wrap up with a note on Depression and finally Acceptance. If you’re finding yourself dealing with any of these stages, know you’re not alone, and be okay with asking for professional help.
