Good Words Go A Long Way
“ Good words are worth much, and cost little. ”
As many of you may know, my passion is horses. I tend to get "green" horses. (For those non-horsey people, this means that they are trained in bare basics and need more training and experience.)
Now, there are different methods for training horses, as it is with any animal. The only difference is that I use kind words, along with patience and calmness in training them. If I would be harsh and use unkind words, it would most likely end up in a fight and nothing would really get accomplished or learned. Using kind words, I find, helps them learn quicker and enjoy the time together, which is the key.
The same works for personal and business life. I find when someone uses bad words, tension rises along with bad tempers. Nothing gets accomplished.
If you use the kind, good words, others will appreciate being with you and will want to work with you, no matter what the situation.
Just think about it. If someone spoke bad words to you, would you be willing to work with them? Or, with someone who spoke to you with kind words? Do you think you would get more done using patience and kind words?
Plus, kind words do not cost you a red cent, but they are worth a lot.
How's that for a good deal?
