What do you give?On June 5, 2017 by luke
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying about what you send out into the lives of others, and how that it will be returned into your own.
I have been spending some time reading blogs and comments around the web lately. None from any of our users, just different comment threads. I’m not sure what it is about the written word, or the anonymity of a username, but people seem to be sending a lot of hateful things out into the lives of others.
I think we should all be very aware of what we’re giving to other people. Our words are really a part of who we are. They can be a gift or a burden. They can bring happiness or pain. Our words not only reflect back on us personally but on our businesses as well. I have even seen incidences where a consultant treated a customer badly. The customer took to the internet with her complaints and is spreading bad things about the company, not just the consultant. It isn’t fair, and someone could do that even if there was no ill treatment. It seems no one is immune. But, I truly believe what we send in the lives of others will be returned into our own. So, I’m going to go out on a limb here, I’m assuming the bad mouthing customer didn’t have much good coming her way either. It’s all just unfortunate and mad me very sad.
Let’s use kind words and honest business practices. Let’s stand out in the crowd of negativity with love and gentleness. Let’s listen more than we speak and hear more than we say.
