During one of our collaboration meetings my co-founder Randy Kime said something in a story that I had to write down because it is so true. Quick back story, his wife was telling a story about how they went to a wedding and after 30 minutes everyone knew Randy and would ask if he needed anything of if he wanted this or that. She was like How Does He Do It?…. He said, “It Pays to Be Pleasant”.
That really is the secret to happiness. If you give happiness out, you will receive it back 10 fold. When you are nice to people, they want to help you. When you say please and thank you, hold the door and just are humble and kind you will always be remembered.
This is so important in our business world. We must always be pleasant to everyone we meet, not fake pleasant, real pleasant. People smell fake pleasant a mile away. Practice being pleasant all the time and you will live a more satisfied life.
Do not get angry in traffic, or complain when there is a line. Take a breath, smile and do something productive. Maybe talk with someone in the line, you never know who you will meet or where the conversation will go. Maybe record yourself giving a presentation in the car, so you can perfect your vocabulary and move flawlessly. Be Nice… People like nice people.
