Why be Nice ?
Good afternoon, everyone. This is Sal Celly, hope you all are doing great. We are in Dubai and I am at Al Khan beach in Sharjah. I felt driven to post this quick message about the power of being nice.
You’d be amazed how far being nice can take you. It’s the natural thing to do. And when you’re nice, and you treat people with respect, and you go out to help, and assist, and say a kind word, and be interested in the other person, amazing things happen.
We have seen it over and over again. Everybody is focused on themselves, and their issues and their problems and their affairs. When you take a moment and you step out of yourself, and your situation and your world and your problems and your priorities, and you focus on the other person, and you ask them how they’re doing and you’re genuinely interested in a conversation and a kind word, good things happen.
Maybe you help them with their luggage-you know, we were traveling with some folks on the flight and the bags on the overhead cabin were heavy-so without hesitation, I helped bring down the bags for some folks on the flight who were sitting next to us and it felt good. When you’re nice, the other person appreciates it, but it does a lot for you as well. So do that-be nice, whenever and wherever possible.
Opportunities to be Nice are Everywhere
There are opportunities everywhere for you to be nice and be kind-you don’t have to look far. It’s everywhere- when you’re interacting with folks as you go about your day. When we checked into the hotel in Dubai, the front desk person had a lot of people waiting in line and I was there too. It was 2 am local time. I just had a conversation with him- he was from Zimbabwe. And you know, he really liked that and he we got an amazing corner room with a beautiful balcony view on the 24th floor, and it didn’t cost much- but it just was genuine and heartfelt.
Try to be Nice
I just wanted to reiterate the importance and power of being nice-go ahead and try it out. You will be amazed. If anything, it will make you feel good intrinsically and it will absolutely make you feel a lot better and the day will go smoother. When you are nice, it improves your mental health, mental wellness and your physical wellbeing and overall health. When you feel good mentally, physically, and emotionally, the quality of your relationships improve, and you lead a more balanced, fulfilled and happier life. That in turn enables you to maximize your potential. This has positive implications in both your personal life and at work.
You don’t know what the other person you’re interacting with is going through. They may be going through a tough time. Give them some grace. A kind word goes a long way. Be nice-it’s the right thing to do. Thanks for reading and take care. If you would like to know more, schedule a complimentary 30 minute discussion with me, by emailing me at email@example.com
