I challenge you to say hello to strangers everyday for a month. Write down your experiences. Pay attention to how you are and how they are. Why ?
When I was in school for pharmacy technician my communication teacher gave us this lesson. This was actually the year that I started to change and grow up.
I was a very shy, quiet person. I kept to myself. I was scared of engaging with people. I would avoid encounters.
This assignment really changed me. At first it was scary and hard to find the courage to say hi to strangers. It was uncomfortable at first. It felt good after the hello. Just thinking about it, anticipating it made it scary for me.
After a couple of days of doing it, it came smoothly to me. I said hi with a smile on my face and if they say hi back I smile with my teeth. Some will even ask how I am and I would of course ask back. It became easy to where it came naturally.
As I walk pass the hall I’ll say hi to the people that walks by. I may not know them but it’s nice to let people know that I know they exist.
You can say life is like this. Its like starting a new job. Because you are new, you drag your feet to work, worried about the mistakes you will make. As time goes by, you learn from your mistakes and you get better. It becomes easy and your no longer stressing having nightmares.
It’s like your first time going to the gym. You’re worried, you’re scared, you’re nervous, your intimidated. But once you go in and you start your routine it gives you the push for momentum. You go from one work out to another and then you go home. You Keep doing it and surprisingly it gets better. You get stronger, you feel better, you look healthier, you feel healthier.
That’s the thing. Things are hard at first, but once you keep going at it, it gets easier; consistency and persistency. They go hand in hand.
If you want something; a change in lifestyle, a girl or guy, a job , a career change, and whatever you want. You have to be willing to be consistent and be persistent.
If you don’t meet your goal today, try tomorrow. If you fail today, get up and try again. If they say no, work harder and try again.
