Ever wonder how that Starbucks Barista at the drive-thru always manages to turn your frown upside down with his chippy smile, contagious banter, and compassionate interaction?
He does this because he is fully showing up present in his world! He knows that most of the people coming through that lineup are going to be pissy, agitated, confrontational, and rude... but for him, he just chooses to be the sun, shines brightly for all to see being authentically him, and allows people to show up in their space (for the most part) exactly how they choose to be with no expectation to change them in any way! But wait a minute... he does change them simply by locking into his "growth mindset" and harnessing his power of happiness!! He breaks each transaction down into "bitesize" pieces and successfully completes the "experience cycle" like a champ!
When we ground into the world around us it is easy to come from this place and fully create a world that is less stressful, more inspirational, and completely attainable. YES, we have crappy days, yes, the world can serve us an abundance of crap to take care off always... but WE ALWAYS have the choice of how we handle it, what we take on and how we accomplish the transactions of life that present themselves to us!
