This weekend was an interesting one to say the least. I was able to attend an event that my empoloyer held for us here in Albany, New York. Working a Monday through Friday career has definitely gotten me into a certain routine. A routine that has allowed me to get some rest and have some free time for myself on the weekends. This event happen to fall on a weekend, which I was bitter about at first.
We all deal with change on a regular basis. In our personal lives, within the companies we work for, etc. Change is everywhere and we really have to embrace it as best we can. I was able to partake in an event where our keynote speaker happened to be an expert on changes within the business world. He’s helped many businesses join what he calls a “customer service revolution.”
A lot of people don’t realize this or take this into consideration, but it’s in our nature to nurture. We take A LOT for granted. We let little things get to us. In reality the bigger picture is actually painted by a bunch of smaller pictures. There are an incredible amount of absolutely miserable people out there. They don’t care to help people, family, friends, strangers, etc. What they don’t know is that they way they treat others, is a direct reflection on how they treat themselves. We are in a time where technology is making us incredibly distant and insensitive, but we need to really back up for a minute and look at how we’re acting towards one another.
Most of the time these days, people hold grudges, they stay bitter, they burn bridges, and the list goes on and on. Our behavior is selfish in a NEGATIVE way. Selfish in a demeaning way, in an insensitive way. This directly reflects our behavior at the workplace, family get togethers, parties with friends, and all over. It doesn’t have to be any special place. You end up being miserable. You end up being resistant to change. Ultimately, you wind up being the weaker link. Nothing more than someone who merely exists.
Be someone who can stand change. Be someone willing to change. Motivate yourself to be able to adapt as fast as possible.
