We See the World the Way that We Are, Not Always the Way that It Is...

See No Evil, Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil

Let's face it, we all live our lives based on our own perceptions and experiences. And, that is OUR reality! But, for some, is that TRULY the reality of what is going on in the world today?  Not necessarily. But, maybe that's EXACTLY the way they like it! Some don't really want to see, hear or feel the reality of the real world. And that's how they live their entire lives - numb, unfeeling - with no sense of what is going on in or around them.  That's how they choose to live their lives ANd, that is certainly their choice!

On the other hand, there are others that want to know exactly what's going on.

Give me the good with the bad and let me deal with it all. I want to know what's going on. I don't always like want I see and hear, but it is what it is.  I must face it and deal with it.

And, who determines who is living their life the correct way?  Interesting question... with a simple answer...NO ONE! We all have the choice to live our lives the way we see fit.

We can sugar coat life's ups and downs anyway we want to, but that doesn't change the reality of what is really going on.

For me, I'm a big believer in saying it like it is.  And, that's not always the popular approach.  A situation is what it is.  So, why beat around the bush? Sometimes people want to hear it, and often times people don't! I'm not interested in forcing my opinions down someone's throat, but if you ask, I'm going to say it the way I see it.

You know, just because you don't say something, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

And, just because you don't choose to see something that appears to others to be right in front of us, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

And, just because you choose not to hear some type of bad news, it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

Your sense of reality determines how you perceive things going on around you in the world.

People's perceptions are different and always will be.

And, that's what makes the world go 'round!

I appreciate your straight-forward attitude.  I'm not very good at it and find Some people will take the medicine better if it's mixed with a little sugar.....

Hi Mary, I'm not saying that one must be blatantly rude or mean about delivering the truth.  I believe that when someone asks for our opinion, we must be straight forward and upfront with it.  There is a nice way of putting everything. Just tell the truth about it. But, don't let the message be drowned in syrupy sweetness.

Perception of the truth is always more important to the individual than the truth itself.

Sandy, this is the kind of conversation I have with my sellers, especially the ones that are in denial about the price and condition of their home. I ask them if they want me to sugarcoat things, or to be honest with them. Too many sellers are in trouble today because they still are not realistic.

Hi JL, I think that you worded that perfectly, "Perception of the truth is always more important to the individual than the truth itself."  I think that truly sums it up!

Hi Rich, I have had this conversation with buyers and sellers of my own, also.  I think many are finding it difficult to be realistic in today's ever changing market!

I really appreciate straight talk without all the sugar coating.  I like to get my information quick accurate and to the point.  Do to this at times I'm afraid I may come across as insensitive or impatient. At the same time I do feel that its important to be courteous and smile.  Especially when delivering news that the other party doesn't want to hear.

Hi Justin, I don't disagree that we must be very careful in how we deliver any type of news, whether good or bad.  I think we must always take other's thoughts into consideration when conversing with clients.  Thanks Justin!

In our business, perception is often more realistic that reality.

Hi Fred, I know, so very true.  Maybe that's why the business is so very mixed up!
