Have you ever seen the movie Freaky Friday when Jamie Lee Curtis shouts to her Mom/daughter ” Fun Sucker!!!” That is how I feel around negative people. I feel they latch onto you and drain the fun and happiness right out of you!!! Why?!?! Because misery loves company…but also many people don’t realize it takes much more energy to be negative then it does to be positive.
I’m one of those people who use to wait tables in high school/college and actually enjoy it. Why?!?! I chose too!!!! They use to say I was perky, and its a choice! The nicer you are to people, the nicer they are to you!!! In every aspect of life, you have two choices….look for the negative and be a grump, or find the positive. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!!!!
In your business, you are going to have moths you hit a slump. You are going to have customers who complain. You are going to have business partners who quit. But your attitude is controlled by YOU! You can look for the positive and the fact you have a business, or you can dwell on the negative and continue to be unhappy. Life is all about choices! Positivity attracts people to you and makes them want to be around you. But negativity sucks out the fun!!! And in the business world, if you are negative all the time, you will lose customers, friends and business partners!
If your customer has a problem, approach them with a positive solution. That will help them also look for the positive. But if you start getting negative about your company/product they will do them same and quit! If you business builder has a problem, encourage them and help them find a solution. Point out the good things they have done and experienced and encourage them to find something positive to focus on.
We can’t control the world, but we can control our attitude. In your business and your life, you will find so much more success and happiness when you look for the positive!
