The Duty of Being Pleasant


The Duty of Being Pleasant

The Duty of Being Pleasant

Charles Buxton said, “You have not fulfilled every duty unless you have fulfilled that of being pleasant.”

What is “pleasant?”

Pleasant is defined as giving a sense of happy satisfaction or enjoyment to someone or something. When people leave your presence, did you give them the feeling of being enjoyable or pleasurable, or did they say, “thank God that is over?”

Even like the photo says, ‘pretending to be a pleasant person all day is exhausting’ people who can pretend (which is most the world who work in grocery or department stores – hey lets face it a lot of you are are faking and for good reason because some lousy customers role in there and you have to pretend with them) have more success than those who don’t put any effort in at all.

Don’t believe me, shop at a Trader Joes, then go to a Walmart and tell me which experience you enjoyed better?

We have to remember that the people we attract to us will reciprocate the acts of kindness and service that we have given to others. The other day, some young kids were in a store and they were short 3 to 4 dollars for some toys they were trying to purchase.

They were like 10, 12 years of age. Their parents must have been in the car, so I just paid the rest for them. They were overjoyed and thanked me.

A couple weeks later, I’m in a grocery store and forgot to take my cash in with me (I don’t like using debit or credit cards in stores), so I didn’t have enough to buy the milk I wanted, so I put it back.

The man behind me follows me out the store with the milk. I was surprised, I thanked him and he went off into the sea of the world as I did with those kids.

Anyway, being pleasant will come back to you if you put it out and if you pretend long enough, it’ll become natural.

Of course if you want to learn how to be more pleasant, feel free to contact us for ideas that will suit you best!

Knowing What You Want In Life


It is not always easy to know what you want to do. Sometimes you have to put careful thought into thinking about it before it will come to you. Nevertheless, it is vital to do and know to have optimal success in life. Many people wander from thing to thing all because they simply do not know what it is they are supposed to be doing with their life. Others stay dormant in a regular comfortable, but uncomfortable station in life.

Knowing what you want in life takes deliberate thought. It takes thinking; and the thinking is to come to grips with what you do best, and what you enjoy most. I know there are many things we enjoy doing, but which gives you the most satisfaction and joy? If it can be monetized, which nearly everything can be monetized today, then you should go the heck for it.

The best methods to bringing this to past is to find jobs that do what you absolute enjoy doing and going to work for them. You’ll like what you’re doing and you can begin to learn the ropes so that you can make a bit of a resume for yourself and learn the operations to set in motion doing it for yourself one day.

If it does not pay well, the thing that you love, you have to find a way to make it pay well. If it absolutely won’t pay well, then you have to fall back on the thing you can do easiest (that pays). The reason you want to focus on what comes easier for you is not to be lazy; so do not get me wrong here. It is to be able to work at it even harder.

Michael Jordan worked extremely hard in both basketball and baseball, but which did he excel at more? Basketball because his God-given talents in that sport came easier to him than the forced talent of baseball.
