As we step into the most beautiful and busiest season of the year, I would love to talk about love, love for our clients, love for what we do and love for people we deal with on a daily basis. What does it take to express love? Do we take this beautiful feeling called LOVE for granted? Do we give LOVE freely to people around or do we feel we need a special event to show love?
Let’s have a coffee talk…Grab a cup of coffee and I want to hear your thoughts . I have been thinking about this: we live in a very busy world and we do not take time to show love and have a deep soulful conversation. We often say “Hi, How are you?“ That is it. Short. Sweet. In our daily activities we say this phrase to be polite, and we look away or even worse- we get on our Blackberry or Android and reply to new messages in front of people we wanted to talk. Crazy RIGHT? No wonder people feel they build better relationships via Facebook chat or Twitter because at least they are heard and they can express their heart to everyone around!
First, do you want to be heard, loved and appreciated? I am sure you do. I believe we must speak the words of faith, hope and love into people hearts and speak from the bottom of your heart not because YOU HAVE TO SOUND KIND and LOVING. We must show people they matter and at that moment they got our attention. I love spending evenings with my husband talking about his days or going on a quick coffee date and just listen to him, reflect and plan our week. We often wonder why people do not take time for their friends or family and they live few miles away or a call away. How can we expect to have a great business if we do not take care of our relationships with loved ones and our friends? Why do so many people become very cold and distant and wonder why their business suffers.?! Everything you do reflects your inner state and your clients and business associates can feel your energy even miles away.
Secondly, do not worry about creating your image. You are not a politician. When you a ask your team member, your business client, a biz associate how they are doing, really take time and focus on them. Give them your “time” and look in the eyes. Even when you are on the phone feel them, imagine they are right there and you are enjoying a cup of coffee together. When I started using social media few years ago I even made a video “Smile when you tweet!” People care how you make them feel. Do they feel special in your presence? Do they trust you? If they do you have won their attention and possibly new clients. If you focus on building authentic and kind relationships with your customers, it will create miracles in business. As your nurture your relationships your business will thrive. Do you want more fans and more referrals? Then focus on treating each client as VIP client even if they pay you 10 bucks! You never know they could be YOUR star, a person who can open your heart to see new things, a person who can guide you or be just your best friend. Be a giver…When you start being a giver, God will open doors to everything that seems so impossible!
Third, love yourself. Self love is the force that pushes your forward and allows you to accept people as they are. When you accept yourself the way God made you, you would be more patient with yourself and others. You will be able to have passion and purpose in life because you know your values and your decisions are based on them! Self love is the most important factor in creating profits. If we cannot look at ourselves in the mirror and say “Hey YOU, did you know you are so cool and smart and I LOVE YOU!” If we are afraid to see the best in ourselves, we would NOT be able to see the best in others, at least fully!
