How to Project Positive Expectations.




How to Project Positive Expectations.

The most noticeable characteristic of power talkers is that they project positive expectations, both for themselves and for others.

When you change your thoughts, you change your life. But you can’t just sit in one corner and think positively –that won’t change your life. You need to interact positively with others.

Power talkers go beyond thinking positively-they talk positively, too. Notice the big difference between a person who says, “I can never remember anyone’s name” vs. the person who says, “I am working to improve my memory.”

I recently had my home remodeled, and I noticed that the contractor who said, “I’ll try to get back to you by tomorrow “rarely did. Those who said, “I will have an answer for you before 5:00 tomorrow.” Follows through and live up to their commitments.  That’s because the expectations they set did not just influence me, the listener.  They influence themselves as well. When you set positive expectations for others, you’re setting them for yourself, too. Making a commitment increases your reliability in the other person’s eyes, and it also help you program yourself to follow through.

One manager of a public utility company noticed that her people often revealed their gloomy morale through their routine daily greetings. She’d overhead co-workers passing in the hallways greeting each other with,”Hey, how’s it going?” The most common responses ran along the lines of, “oh, ok, I guess,” and “only four more days ‘till the weekend.” She suspected that these comment brought everyone’s attitude down.

During her next staff meeting, she explained her theory and implemented a reward system to encourage positive responses. She designated individuals to serve as “mystery greeters,” so other employees wouldn’t know when their responses were being assessed. The greeters asked co-workers how they were, and noted those who offered positive responses. Those who the “mystery greeters” felt contributed most to a positive atmosphere were recognized and rewarded with a small prize at the end of the day. The result?

“It made a huge difference almost overnight. Once people became aware of the effect their greetings and responses had on each other, I heard them saying things like: ‘Great!’ or ‘I’m doing really well today, how ‘bout you?’ and so on. They all started believing each other, and really did feel much better. You could easily gauge the difference in morale.”

In the following article you’ll meet people who focus on affirmative language and action, who set optimistic expectations for themselves and others, and who think, speak, and behave positively, they use their own language to create success for themselves. You can, too.
