With or without having a pandemic as an excuse, some people walk around looking as if they have just lost their best friend. These people are communicating to the world that life is, and will continue to be, an unfair experience. Daily existence is a total drag while life offers nothing in return for their “showing up.”
If you know one or more of these types (and I’m betting that you do), let me suggest that trying to improve the future of anyone engaged in an exercise in self-pity is often an exercise in futility.
You must stop thinking that it is your responsibility to get these people singing happy songs. Your job is to get your own thinking straight, in gear, and firmly positioned so that you can contribute to those eager to enjoy the ride along with you.
Here’s this week’s phrase that pays:
You can’t change the world… but you can change your world.
Your job is to energize you… while making certain that you don’t get confused for the walking dead. Once you take care of you, your actions will do the talking. People are attracted to those who are alive, energetic, and happy – who have ideas and exciting notions about life – who have kind things to say about others.
So, if you truly want to become the exception, pick a game… any game… and then get into the game. Become a positive player.
And what better time to start showcasing the new and attractive you than right now.
But, before I turn you loose to go out and do some good today, I would like to call your attention to the simple magnet. The magnet, based on its position has the ability to either attract or repel. And so it is with you. You exhibit these very same tendencies regardless of the circumstance. You either draw people into your world or you drive them away with no uncertainty.
Given these two options as your two choices, I strongly recommend you begin exhibiting the behavior that draws your clients and prospects closer to you and to your services.
