#24 Feelings Don't Hold You Back - They Drive You Forward

"Feelings are messy and they can get in the way of professional success." 

That's why so many managers try to push them aside and focus on logical decision-making instead. But here's the thing: ignoring your feelings is a huge mistake.

While it may seem like ignoring one's emotions would be advantageous in a high-stress profession such as property management, this could not be further from the truth. In reality, paying attention to your emotions can help you make better decisions, empathize with tenants, and even reduce stress levels. 

Sure, property managers are tough. They have to be able to make difficult decisions and deal with a lot of stress. But that doesn't mean they don't have feelings, too. In fact, ignoring your feelings can actually lead to some serious problems down the road. 

When you are willing to understand your own emotions, your feelings can start driving you forward (instead of holding you back!).
