Focus on the positive: It works! A real life story

I just had a new revelation!  Good things really happen when you focus on them!

My friend’s friend wanted to enquire about the printing charges for company tee shirts at this newly opened shop.  When we first went in, the person manning the shop did not know much.  A few minutes later, a Chinese salesman entered the shop and entertained our enquiries to no avail.  Now, this Chinese salesman spoke excellent English, so I complimented him.  He was so modest until he did not say ‘thank you’.  Instead, he started complimenting me in return.

Interestingly, after complimenting him, his entire demeanour and attitude towards us changed.  He started finding the necessary information with great enthusiasm!

I quote my friend’s words,

“I am really amazed at how you can decide on something good about the Chinese salesman just now, despite [his] not being knowledgable in many things. He changed totally after you praised him, [he was] more confident and help[ed] you a lot:) Wonderful!”

We even exchanged namecards, and I shared miscelleneous things to connect on a social and emotional level.  Likewise, he shared information on his company structure, and even gave me a packet of tissues that his company printed!  Furthermore, he kept in touch and even texted me on his occurrences in his shop after we left!

On a side note, the tissues came in very handy as I had run out of it.

Look at the flow of things.  It’s amazing!  The best part was, I was doing it at an unconscious competent level!  I was in a state of flow.  Entirely natural and flowing.  My dear friend highlighted that it was something that not everyone does, nor do things like this happen to everyone.  Would you do a double flip if I say these things happen to me most of the time?  They DO.  Almost ALL the time.  How does it happen?  By focusing on the positive.  See my earlier articles on this awesome phenomenon – Focus ONLY on the GOOD in everyone that you know; and Yes, lot! Yes, Lot! YES, LOT!!! The power of the Positive!
