It’s not easy being nice. Most of us treat the people around us based on our liking and affinity towards them. We have to admit that because of the way our world has evolved, people with pleasant personalities have become a rare find.
We do know that companies and big corporations even have to pay and hire employees to be nice to their customers. Why is this so? It’s simply because things can be accomplished more efficiently and quicker, once people understand each other. There has to be a bigger person in the equation between two or more people who need to solve a conflict. There also has to be an exchange of nice pleasantries for a group of men and women who aim to reach one goal.
However, it might interest you to know that you are the one who can reap the benefits of being kind and nice. How others look at you is just a bonus.
The Advantages of Having a Pleasant Personality
You will be amazed just how cool it is to be kind and to be nice to people. It is because of the benefits it can bring to your life. Once you understand the advantages of having a nicer personality, you will surely make an effort to be kind, to let things go and simply be positive in your dealings with others and with life in general.
1. You become likeable.
People in general, like people who like them. In whatever field you are in, once people see that you’re kind and respectable, they will more likely trust you compared to someone who isn’t. Once you are trusted, it is easy to get what you want from a certain situation. Let us cite an example to prove this point.
A salesman who establishes good rapport and friendship toward his or her potential client, has a greater chance to close the deal compared to a sales agent who neither smiles nor makes an effort to go the extra mile. People always prefer to purchase goods or services from people they like, people who are pleasant. Even if the “nice/likeable” person is slightly higher in price, they often still make the sale as people prefer to do business with people they like and trust.
2. You will be surrounded with kind and generous people.
Why is this going to be advantageous on your end? This is where the law of attraction comes into play. When you are positive, you attract the positive. Remember that people usually remember the little unkind things done to them by others. On the other hand, people also normally do not forget a kind deed. This is called karma. We all get what we deserve. Your good words and actions will attract generous people to you, who would be willing to reciprocate whatever it is that you have done for them.
3. You become healthier.
Stress is the leading cause of cancer and all other illnesses. If you’re the type of person who does not let the little things go and fight every “battle” you encounter, you let your body go through a lot of stress. Negative energies can have a negative impact on your health. When you’re consistently kind, nice and pleasant, your cardiovascular and nervous systems also become relaxed. By being nice, you say goodbye to cancer, and wrinkles too!
4. You can have a happier and more meaningful life.
Hate, anger, jealousy, and greed are heavy traits that wear your spirit down. When you nurture all of these negative emotions, you would notice that you tend to close your doors in your relationships, and even opportunities for growth and success. When you practice the traits that lead you to have a pleasant personality, you become more forgiving, more open-minded and you see challenges not as problems but as opportunities for a better and happier life.
5. You gain the respect of others.
Respect may seem like such a trivial thing for many, but when you’re kind and you treat people well in whatever circumstance, you become respectable. This can be very beneficial in your personal life, your family, your friends and especially the workplace. Promotion on the job becomes easier. Moreover, the likelihood to become approved or accepted for anything, be it a job or a loan will be a piece of cake compared to how others with a rude personality or bad credibility would have to go through.
An interesting fact uncovered
There was a study conducted in recent years. This was a study which investigated the malpractice lawsuits filed against family doctors (general practitioners). It was soundly established that most lawsuits were filed by people who did not like there doctor. The reasons for this varied on many levels but nearly all of them shared a common thread. This was the fact that the doctor did not treat them well and did not show respect-they were NOT pleasant. It is a proven fact that when all is said and done, people can overlook and forgive many things if the person in question is sincere, honest, and respectful, in other words, “nice”!
So now that you know that there are many good things that one can get from being nice, making the effort should not be as challenging as before. You don’t even have to think of it as an obligation that you need to do for others. Just think of yourself and how easier, happier and successful your life will become with a pleasant personality in tow.
