How to Have a Great Day

As a San Diego Realtor I work hard to communicate to people that my job is to help them, and yet I often receive either spoken or unspoken a response that is clearly suspicious. My best guess about human behavior is that people don’t trust or believe other people very easily.  In my quest to solve this communication problem I have searched for the “magic words” that will trigger acceptance. 

In other words, “what can I say to get you to respond to me?”  I’ve learned that there are two key factors -
1.  What you say - or the words you use.
2.  How you say it - tone, inflection, body language, etc...
The right combination of the two generates a very positive response. If you want to have a great day, then all you have to do is change the way you’re looking at the day.  The slightest shift in your approach or perspective can make a big difference. Is your glass half empty or is it half full?

Watch this short video about the power of words, and remember -
It’s a beautiful day but not if You can’t see it.

Stephen Fells posted this very same video at 6:42 or 6:47 this morning.  Very strange that both of you found it.

Great blog Janet. I was introduced to this video last year from another Active Rain member. Its amazing how changing our words can change the meaning significantly. I've always been conscious of what I say and how I express myself. Now Im even more aware of it.

Janet, Thanks for posting this so I could see it again.  Like you, each time I see it touches me.  Thanks to Gary for his re-blog that got me here.

Words are powerful: written and spoken.  I remember years ago being given the advise to reword my memory's experience of a tough time in my past and what a shift occurred inside of me when I did that!  It's the words we tell ourselves too that make the difference on our inner lives and outer actions.

Have a great week.
