Good Vibrations, great song! I’m pickin’ up good vibrations…..
Do you feel good vibrations?
How many times have you said to yourself “I’m just getting bad vibes” or alternatively, “I just have a really good feeling about this”.
If you have ever heard Kevin Trudeau’s Your Wish is Your Command audio series, he talks about his theory that everything around us is based on vibrations at different frequencies. It makes sense to me that how we are feeling is a reflection of the vibrations around us.
When the people I’m surrounded by are all melancholy, I end up feeling very blue. When that happens, I find the solution is to change the people I’m around. Find people who are positive and sending out good vibes. Sometimes I can actually change my mood just by being alone for awhile and playing the right music. Changing my tune so to speak. You will often hear tactics like this described as “finding my happy place”, commonly heard by sales people.
I have often said that you choose your day when you get up in the morning. If you are feeling grumpy, go back to bed for a bit if you have to. Rather than making the people around you miserable, take the time to re-tune yourself. Play hooky if you need to! We often hear this called a mental health day.
Sending good vibrations.
Your business depends on it! Good vibrations are good for business. Have you ever heard the expression “Put a smile in your voice”? When you answer the phone and put a smile on your face, it transfers to your voice. The resonance changes (vibrations) and people will have a much more positive response.
Think about the times you have called into customer service, how did you react to the person on the other end? How did they react to your voice? When I’m “pleasant” the person on the other end is far more likely to be pleasant back and likely to find common ground to work from. Abruptness leads to the inability to hear each other and ends up in neither being happy with a resolution, if you can find one.
So, when you find yourself feeling frustrated and angry, take a look at yourself and your surroundings. Do you need to get rid of some negativity? Are you the one sending the bad vibes and getting back what you are sending?
In the end, it’s all up to you. Either change your own vibrations or change the tune by changing the environment. Sometimes your best friend can be your worst enemy and you just need to take a break. These are tough choices but we need to remember, good vibrations are good for business!
Make it a great day!
P.S. What am I thankful today? I’m thankful for the ability to make choices. I’m thankful for good music. I’m thankful for people like Kevin Trudeau and Carey Nieuwhof who are willing to share their thoughts.
What are you thankful for today?
