Sometimes all I have is sympathy for our parents’ generation.
Their parents saw the partition of the nation – leaving their country, their childhood, all that they called “theirs”, to come to another place just to survive.
In this need for survival, was the generation of our parents born.
Thus, the upbringing they got was of stress, not having enough time, and always lack of means.
Which is why our parents are the way they are. They have been conditioned so. They were never taught to love. Perhaps because they were never loved. And then one fine day, we pop up and expect them to be cool because that is what we are surrounded by – cool kids just like us.
Now that we know, we can still do what we want to do, while being respectful of who they are. It isn’t just for them, it is for the acknowledgement of how much they are trying to adapt, because they care for you:)
“I have dealt with so many bad clients.” “Not all clients provide creative freedom.” “I have the mind of steel now, while dealing with bad clients.”
Time and again, I see people documenting their bad experiences with their clients.
However, here is the truth: They weren’t bad. They were just being themselves.
Maybe they were not trusted with money so they thought it is okay to pass on that belief. Maybe their work never trusted so they did the same to you. Or maybe maybe maybe you made the mistake in choosing the wrong professional relationship.
If we are aware, we always know in pre signing up conversations, how the other person is going to turn out to be. If we truly look back at all our “bad” experiences, in our heart, we knew that before signing them up.
People rarely change. They just reveal themselves. It is up to us when we choose to see and when we choose to be blinded.
You cannot measure the revenue a customer will bring basis your product.
It also depends on: – how you treat them – do you really mean that kindness – how much you care about customer satisfaction at the core – what do you do to raise that bar – how do you listen to customer queries and complaints
The existing customer, will then decide how many people would he decide to turn into your permanent ones.
Applies to all areas of life. Your social media. Your friends. How you treat them. How you treat yourself. Who are you friends with.
The tiniest things that we do, even how careful or ruthless we are while applying toothpaste on our brush, determines how successful we become – financially and in every other area .
Anger. The word whose existence kills most relationships.
Even when people are aware that they need to stop getting so angry, why aren’t they able to change it?
Because they want their needs to be met first.
I want to be respected by my friends. I want to earn more than a colleague. I should be the priority for getting perks.
And when we don’t get these things we get bruised in our minds. That inner hurt is reflected as anger, sooner or later.
What if, we try the other way round?
I respect my friends and I know they also love and respect me, even if they don’t express it. What I earn is right for me and whatever raise I deserve, will come to me. Everyone is getting all the perks they deserve. It’s us vs me.
It turns out, when we change the inner conversation, the outer and inner anger vanishes.
Guess who is responsible for our anger then? Guess who has the power to change it?
The power we look for outside, is the inner power we do not use.
