Luckily enough, I learned early in life that the more you give the more you get. Now before you think that I am talking about material things, let me explain. A smile or a few kind words are a gift. Doing the unexpected is a tremendous gift. As real estate professionals, we have the opportunity to touch a great number of people each day from clients, mortgage professionals, assistants, inspectors, lawyers to each other.
Why not treat each of those experiences as a gift?
There are a bunch of folks out there that don’t get it though. Have you encountered one of them? Recently, I encountered someone who seemed to have the exact opposite approach, be as mean and lazy as possible and don’t do anything beyond the scope of your “job.” Admittedly, it was a fight not to return the proverbial vinegar, but I restrained. Kill them with kindness is a terrific philosophy to live by.
Imagine what a day would be like if every person you encountered smiled at you. Try it, go out and try to make 5 people smile right now!
