Another start of the week, another “Motivational Monday” post. This week is going to be tough (a lot of work & studies), for example, today I will have a test in accounting! So, so boring, even though, I am studying Management studies I have to learn how company works from all aspects! At least I know what I would never want to be an accountant!
Anyways, today I wanted to present to you this quote. I think this quote perfectly defines me. I have had numerous life situations in which I have experienced rude attitude towards me. And as I am not the lets-make-a-scene type of person, I respond to them in the kindest manner I am able to come up with, just to make them feel bad for how they have acted or what they have said.
For example, in work I am forced to be kind, I cannot be impatient or rude if somebody is being impolite or even abusive (trust me, there are a lot of people who like to take out their negativity on random persons- such as me, a sales advisor). In my work I have even been yelled at, called unprofessional etc. but I never let that get to me and I always fake a huge smile and have my “kind attitude” going on. And you know what a lot of times it has worked perfectly, people are shocked that I don’t respond to their provocations, some of them even apologize, some get quiet and calm down etc. And after that I feel really good, because I know I am a better person and I have not stepped down to their level.
But of course this doesn’t apply to only job and working life, I have had moments like this in plenty other places, such as public transport, University and so on.
So take this quote in consideration and have a really great and productive working week!
