Being part of the solution

Recently, I had to return a call about a business deal. Somehow I began to doubt the integrity of the other party. I am not sure where that doubt arose from; it could be an experience with the other party or doubts within myself.

Before I called this party I revisited my feelings and decided to take the approach of giving this party the benefit of doubt, listen without judgment and not become part of the problem.

To my pleasant surprise, the call went smoothly. The other party was reasonable, fair and supportive. I believe if I had called the other party before revisiting my feelings, the call may have ended differently.

I realized that we have the power to be part of the solution, instead of part of the problem.
