What You Put Out is What You Get Back


Think about this proposition next time you interact with people at work
or in your personal life. How does the vibe you put out affect what you
get back from people. For example, how do you feel when someone does
the following:

Frowns.
Scowls.
Speaks in an aggressive tone of voice or shouts.
Doesn’t listen.
Doesn’t look at you.
Is angry or impatient.
Talks over you.
Rolls their eyes.
Always griping or negative.

How would you react to a person acting like this? I bet you can think of
many other things that are not conducive to great communication or to
effective interpersonal relationships. It’s amazing how much the energy
we put out affect what we get back. On the other hand, think of how you react when someone projects the following:

Smiles.
Listens.
Speaks in a calm tone.
Looks at you.
Talks when appropriate.
Nods and prompts you for more information.
Focuses on positive approaches.

What was your reaction to this type of behavior? If you’re like most people
you would likely be more attracted to interacting with this person.
There really is something to the idea that what we put out is what we
get back. What can you do about it? Start today by putting out positive
vibes that the world can pick up on. It will take conscious effort and
practice on your part but, over time, you will transform who you are
and attract greater positivity.

Cheers,

Guy
