Motivational Monday

Hi! :)

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!

Yours,
Maddie

  2. That's so true! I'm more hot-blooded, so first, I imagine something really horrible, arrogant and mean that I could do (to calm down) and then I try to be polite and nice too. XD

  11. This quote is so true! I just wish I were better at practicing.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a make-a-scene person either, but I do put a bad face and maybe roll my eyes and that doesn't make me the bigger person :/
    Have a great week!

  12. I am definitely not a make a scene type of person either. When someone is mean or rude I tend to just look over it. I hope it you make it through your rough week. It is going to be a tough one for me too. It is only Monday night and I'm already exhausted.

  22. I'm a book and quotes worm..I have a ton of them saved up and written on notebooks because I truly find them inspirational.. this one's useful.. I've applied it... for instance, when driving ha.. and someone honks the horn at me or something really mad.. and instead of honking them back or making a hand gesture or screaming at them, I just wave with my hand and smile at them like saying "oh hello!! thank you!" ha ha and they just get way more angry... I think they expect the worse, and when you give them the opposite, the kindness.. they don't know how to react.. but you for sure will feel better, and in the end, they will too.
    good luck on that accounting test.. I do hate numbers :S

  23. It's so true though. There's nothing more powerful than being kind to someone who has a negative attitude!
