"Good Manners" are always fashionable, in good taste and in the season. As we strive to live out our life as a whole person, expressing success and goodness in every aspect of living "Good Manners" is a wonderful attribute to cultivate and practice. we live in a world that is filled with unhappy people that are rude, hostile, angry, and addicted to displaying "Bad Manners." As a successful professional "Bad Manners" on our part are never acceptable
It is very easy to display bad manners without realizing it. O Monday l was at lunch with a fellow business partner "MJ" and we were listening to a conference call on my cell phone. There were two elderly ladies in the next booth that kept looking at me. I thought they were thinking, "Wow what a good looking man that guy is!" My head and ego grew by the moment until they got and gave me a stern "Rebuke" on how rude l was and bad manners l showed by blasting that call on my speaker phone in public while people were eating. Thank God for "Extra Strength" Poly Grip or the Rebuke would have knocked my choppers right out of my head.
She was right, how rude of me to display of "Bad Manners" on my part!
Success is about personal and self-management, self-evaluation and self-improvement. We must always evaluate improve and adjust our behavior and conduct, both personally and professionally. The biggest common denominator of bad habits is "Uncontrolled Language" Derogatory Language is a very unattractive character trait that does not fit a growing, successful leader and wealthy business professional.
Would you want a dentist working on your teeth while every other word were, That Blank so and so is one dumb....." Or how about a proctologist telling you "Bend over while I shovel this thing up your........!" Why, if that would ever happen you would be at your attorneys office filling a complaint.
"Good Manners" goes far beyond our words, but penetrates our actions, thinking and methods of dealing with people. "Bad Manners" is always letting others pay for our meals. "Good Manners" is always picking up the check for your guests. I can always detect the true character, bank account and future success of a person by observing what they do when the check comes.
I always make it the nonnegotiable habit of picking up the check when eating out with friends and business guests. Many times, when I am out with a new person that wants to do business or an associate with me I will take them out to eat. Without them knowing I will hand the waiter my Credit card and tell them to pay the bill and just bring the receipt in the little black book and do not say anything. After we are done eating and the waiter brings what looks like the check and puts it on the table. I will just sit there without making a move to see what the other person does.
I have had them get up to make a phone call, go to the restroom, or keep talking without stopping and move from subject to subject. I have found if someone displays "Bad Manners" from the start, they will display it throughout the entire relationship and its best to part ways then and there with a smile.
What single woman thinks a man would make a good future husband that was cheap and displayed "Bad Manners"? Check your Manners constantly and observe the manners of other. Good and Bad Manners speak volumes! My Millionaire Mentor taught me over 30 years ago, "Don always pick up the check." In those early days in 1980 l would take people out to dinner and silently pray "Dear Jesus, please them order water and a salad." Sometimes they would but most of the time they ordered Shrimp and Steak along with a salad."
