Ways to Improve Your Business Personality - 3
|Posted by Mevonnie Hugh on August 7, 2011 at 11:55 PM|
You are developing a positive attitude; you are saying “Yes, I can,” but there are times when you want to scream “Noooo!” Remember, it is easy to be negative but when you approach problems with a positive view, you can solve them more easily.
“Once you replace negative words with positive words, you’ll start having positive results.” – Willie Nelson
Circumstances can arise when you are challenged to remain positive, but ask yourself “do I want a partnership/friendship or a battleground?” So what do you do when you must say “No”?
Face the situation; take a moment to analyze it, smile, and soften your tone and….
Imply the negative. Let your words suggest “no” without actually saying so.
E.g.: Someone asks you, the secretary of a mail order company, if you will allow him to have copies of your sales letters
You answer: “Our Company depends primarily on sales and collection letters for its business; they are for our use only.”
Use sentence structure. Place the “No” in the dependent clause of the sentence.
E.g.: Instead of saying: “You forgot to send me your shipping address.”
You say: “If you will give me your shipping address, I’ll send your order immediately.”
Make the negative impersonal. Make a ‘thing’ the subject of the sentence.
E.g.: Instead of saying: “You smudged the ink along the edges of some of the copies.”
You say: “The copier smudged the ink along the edges of some of the pages.”
Say what it is you can do. It is better to say what you can do instead of what you cannot do.
E.g.: Your partner asks: “Can I have your proposal by this evening?”
You say: “I can have it ready for you by 10am tomorrow morning.”
When you are faced with a negative situation, use them for growth. Use them to prepare for future events and propel into positive action. Practise changing negative statements to positive ones sincerely and feel yourself being lifted up instead of down.
