In my last video, I discussed systems to put in place to continue to thrive through a busy selling season. One of the things I mentioned was the need to ‘control’ your emotions, but that’s much easier said than done. So today I’m sharing the steps to help you choose your emotions so you don’t waste time and energy caught up in what can be an emotional business. If you go through and ask yourself these questions, you can learn to better choose your emotions in any given situation.
