How should we respond...

How should we respond when someone we know makes a mistake that can potentially hurt an important project or can reflect badly upon us?

The first natural response is frustration … and expressing our frustration to that person may relieve us of the stress caused by the mistake.

However, choosing a different response such as showing compassion and curiosity, will get us more powerful results.

Put simply… our brains naturally respond more positively to empathy as opposed to treating others in a condescending manner.

Of course, our feelings of frustration are probably still there, especially when we know how that mistake affects OUR credibility and reputation. If we can somehow suspend judgment, there may be an opportunity to use this as a moment to coach or mentor the other person and build a more meaningful relationship.

By allowing the other person learn from the mistake and “save face,” we’ll be more likely to earn more trust or respect from them. They may be so moved or inspired by your kindness that they might do or say something to ensure that others know you handled things professionally, respectfully, and with integrity.

Being proactive in learning how to handle your own emotions is key.

I am personally learning how to step back and get in control of my emotions. By learning how to use discernment, I have more thoughtful and reasonable responses to situations. Meditation is helping me improve my own self-awareness and emotional control.

In this industry, it's so important to work on yourself daily. In doing so, it helps you develop meaningful relationships, and it's even more impactful if these relationships become long-term.
You are more likely to get people who stick around for the long-term if your system has been created to promote long-term results and long-term wealth.
This is why I created the Long Term Wealth Plan.
This part right here is essential in helping to work on yourself daily.

About Renee Sullivan


My name is Renee Sullivan. I am an enthusiastic mother of two, consultant, and entrepreneur. I love my family, and I enjoy music and theater. My vision is that those who decide to start a business of their own and do whatever it takes to get there, will have the financial flexibility to choose how to live their life on their own terms. If you are a parent and want to work for yourself from home, you should be able to do that without resistance from a spouse, family, friends, other outside influences, or even your own doubts or hesitations that stop you from your desires. With a positive mental attitude, the more I improve myself, the better I help my clients prosper. The more value I give, the better I serve others and receive in return. I love challenges, and I thrive on helping others on their journey to an abundance of wealth, success and happiness. My specialty is working with small business owners to help them minimize the amount of work they need to do to hire their ideal employee. I set up their hiring game plan, take the stress out of vetting applicants, interviewing them, checking references, and making recommendations. I give my clients access to resources, not only to get to the next level in their business, but also in improving their own self-development and discovering their personal strengths and areas to work on. Some entrepreneurs are either unaware that they need help, or do not know how to access resources to improve. Some entrepreneurs do not know who to trust. I have been very fortunate to follow in the footsteps of mentors that not only establish a plan to prosper themselves, but they also know how to show others exactly how they do it. Because I have learned from those mentors, I am consulting with my clients to do the same. If you have the true spirit of an entrepreneur, you are willing to learn and implement the skills taught, and if you are ready to hone the leadership skills necessary to grow your own successful business, then you have come to the right place.
