Are you satisfied with your life? I’ve often heard that an unsatisfied customer will tell or vent to nine friends and satisfied people only share their story with five others. Often we don’t even tell the person or place that we are dissatisfied with, but rather choose to express anger, disappointed, etc. (venting) to others who have nothing to do with the situation, yet leaving a bad impression for them who may not have even met the person or the organization before.
Be your own best customer by sharing empowering and inspiring thoughts and feelings with those you come across and trust me, it will make you feel great at the same time. Smile and make eye contact. Hold the door open for others and thank those that open the door for you. Be kind to those in the service industry and let them know you appreciate their service. Sure situations will come up that frustrate you and/or anger you, but see the best in that person rather than taking it personally as a way to disrupt your day. We’re all customers in life striving to be our best selves and to be loved, healthy, and secure.

For the next week, I invite you to increase your customer satisfaction by:
Being gentle with yourself and others and choosing to believe everyone is trying their best with their current circumstances.
Appreciating the people you come in contact with as even those that you have contrasting experiences with give you the opportunity to grow from it and allow you to appreciate the people who empower you at a deeper level.
Sharing your satisfaction: I love to ask for a manager (in person and on the phone) when I’ve had good or friendly service and let that manager know how nice and helpful the person was who took care of me. To see their expression change from worry (as they are used to hearing complaints) to the smile of appreciation when they see it’s a compliment is worth the few extra minutes it might take.
Mostly, I wish you a week filled with appreciation, gratitude, love, kindness, laughter and lots of hugs. You get to choose how to react to ‘great’ experiences as well as ‘contrasting’ ones, so choose reactions that will serve you well and lead you to an incredibly satisfied life.
Until next time, I’d like to let your manager know that you are amazingly kind, funny, brilliant, fun, and giving. It’s a pleasure doing business with you!
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
