You have given yourself permission to live the life you are currently living. You have the power to change it. Use your God given gift of the two helping hands at the end of your own arms.
Change your life today. Develop a backbone, common sense, and confidence just
by reading our book “A Year of Good Manners” by Margery Sinclair and Jan Polk, $27.95.
It is a quick read.....90 pages.......and Margery gives you a reason to use each of the 365 common every day etiquette tips. You will enjoy this book. Jan’s images are reminders to treat yourself and others with respect and expect others to do so in return.
Just one of the many tips in our book is: “Maintain composure when displeased.” When you are yelling, you announce to the whole world “I am out of control.”. The one who maintains composure is the one who is in control. Think how much calmer your life will be just by using this one tip.
Think about it. In the job market, if all things were equal, the person with the best manners will win out. Employers want to hire people they can trust to be honorable, dependable, reliable, respectful people who know how to show respect to themselves and to their customers. Employers want to hire people who have initiative and common sense and know how to get a job done. How you dress, walk, talk,and act are all social skills or the lack of social skills. Only you determine who you are. You can still be yourself yet hold yourself to a higher standard. Just because you are an honorable, civilized, law abiding citizen, does not mean you become a door mat and cannot protect yourself or have fun. We learn many other skills in addition to social skills; however, social skills are the first of life’s tools one must learn in order to navigate life on planet Earth. Social skills should be learned first; not acquired after one accumulates wealth.
When you base your self esteem on your social skills and not on the amount of
money you have or do not have, you will find life is quite nice. You are in control of your behavior.
