Are You Willing to Live with the Consequences of Your Actions?

Are You Willing to Live with the Consequences of Your Actions?

 

Sometimes it just doesn't matter how old we are.  We don't consider the cause and effect, the consequences of our actions.

 

Easter Eggs 

 

A few years ago, my oldest son had some issues with his behavior, the result was that he had several privileges removed for the day. That day unfortunately for him, happened to be Easter weekends, and as things sometimes go, we were then invited to an Easter egg hunt and party.  I chose to take my youngest son, and my oldest stayed home with Dad as a consequence of his earlier actions. Was it unpleasant? Did it seem unfair?  Yes, and yet we did it.  The result, it stuck with him, and he remembers that his actions have consequences, and they are not always good. Did it make his behavior perfect?  Don't I wish!  Still, it and other lessons like it have made him think (sometimes) before he does things.

 

What about you?

 

Do you live with the consequence of your actions?  Are you not having your offers accepted because you believe it's a buyers' market despite what your agent tells you?  Are you a seller who has a home that isn't selling because you don't want to believe your agent who continues to tell you that your price needs to be reduced?

 

Are you an agent with listings that aren't selling because you weren't willing to explain to your sellers the true market value of their home?

 

We all live with the consequences of our actions.  My son has already realized in his short life that his actions hae consequences, and as a result, we see different choices.

 

If you don't like the consequences of your current actions, change your actions so that the consequences will be more to your liking.
