We can all succeed if we practice performance principles. To be successful, one must be committed to personal growth and development, and a willingness to perfect practices that lead to a successful outcome. Like all other practices, developing paths that lead to success requires commitment, consistency, and perseverance.
While traveling, I ate lunch at a busy airport, where I met a waitress I called Paula. This waitress was great. While I was thinking about how wonderful she went to my table and asked "Need something? I have to go to a restroom for a few minutes and I didn't want you to eat anything in my absence."
I've been to many restaurants, but I've never had a waitress to tell me she would have gone a few minutes. Have you?
This was not an imaginary restaurant with white fabrics and dress code. Instead, it was a cost chain restaurant where customers turned in and out quickly. When she returned, Paula again asked if I needed anything. The restaurant was busy and Paula had several tables with many other customers. However, I pointed out that she provided all the great services.
Before leaving the restaurant, I asked how she developed such an unusual service and customer service. She said she had no special training in customer service. However, she had been a waitress for many years. Paula pointed out that her resources were limited, but she was "grateful" for getting a job. She showed great gratitude.
Gratitude can help you get more positive mood and reduce stress and depression. In spite of her circumstances, it seemed that this was true for Paula who did her job while the show was fun.
Her service was exemplary and reminded me of five qualities that help to create success in your life that I refer to as PAULA Guide to Success:
1. P leasant Disposition. Paula greeted me with a smile when she first came to my table and behaved like it was fun and fun to wait on each table. Smiles can become infectious and require little effort. When you greet people with a smile, people perceive you as a fun personality. This helps create better human relationships, and it also helps you win people over in most situations.
2. ttitude gratitude. This allows us to be positive and optimistic. Paula expressed gratitude despite her circumstances and she continued to focus on good work.
3. U deny a working group. This is fundamental to maintaining focus when we regularly carry out our work assignments and enable us to complete our professional skills. Paula won a lot every moment she was in the restaurant and ensured that all her customers & # 39; needs were met.
4. L indefinite obligations. Paula had worked as a waitress for many years. She reminds us that it takes a great deal of commitment to success.
5. A to achieve your goal. Attention to information leads to excellence in carrying out work-related work. Paula's attitude to the needs of his clients before they realized they were needed to succeed.
If you want to succeed in all areas of life, I suggest you follow Paula's example. It shows all the qualities needed to succeed in all areas of life.
Use the Paula phenomenon daily and watch the positive changes that come in your life.
