“Treat people how you would like to be treated”
How often did you hear that growing up but often it would fall on deaf ears? I know with me I didn’t really think about it too much till I was much older.
How hard is it to just be nice?
Speak politely to one another.
Use our manners: “Please, thank you, excuse me and sorry.”
Why are so many people so angry and bitter to the world? Don’t they know that they have the opportunity every day to make their life great?
I know I personally am much more likely to do things for clients who speak nicely and use their manners as opposed to the client who demands things and forgets their manners. Manners go a long way with me and I reckon I’m not alone on that one. I know it’s something I am heavy with as a parent with my sons.
Now, I challenge you to make a conscious effort to be nice to EVERYONE…
Why be nice to people you ask?
Well just like a blog I wrote not too long ago about the boomerang effect I believe that that if you are nice to people, people will be nice to you. So treat people how you would like to be treated.
Talk about positive things.
Speak kindly of one another (If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all- another doozy)
The world has a funny way of attracting what you are. That meaning if you are a mean person you tend to attract mean people BUT if you’re a happy, positive person..guess what.. you attract happy positive people.
This blog might seem like something you would hear a parent tell their kids, but how often do you see people miserable kicking stones, being assholes to one another?… Too often
Take your kindness to the next level. If you can help someone out by doing them a favour then do it. Not because you will be rewarded but because it’s the right thing to do. You may not get an instant return on your favour but the universe also has funny way of returning favours when you least expect it. Some call that karma. If you are a dick all the time karma has a way of showing you who is boss too (I know this one personally as well).
You can make karma your friend OR you butt heads and go to war with it…let me know how that goes for you..
Moral of the story is to “treat people how you want to be treated”. If you want to get favours from others then you better be willing to do it for them, if you want people to speak nicely to you then speak nicely to them and if you want karma to bring you good luck then you better make sure you are doing the right thing and being nice. Side note: being nice is so much less draining then being a negative sour human.
I hope this Dr Seuss like blog can help you and others realise how easy and beneficial it can be to just be a nice person.-
