Are We Having Fun Yet?
Ask a stall holder at any market, “Are you having a good day?”, many will answer, “no'”, “not really”, “be better if people were spending” etc.
A Lesson I’ve Learnt is not to evaluate the value of my day by other peoples actions. I can’t control other people’s moods, tastes, spending habits, manners and attitudes.
What I can control is how I react to it. If you were to ask me if I was having a good day you will hear “Yes”. A good day to me is; if I meet somebody new, have laugh, chat to the stall holder next door, learn something, teach something and the list goes on.
Customers are attracted to people who are relaxed and happy. Conversely they sense who is in a Grumpy Gus mood and avoid them. So the next time somebody asks how your day is going, put a smile on your face and say SPECTACULAR. It will change your mood and the customers immediately.
