Unless we live underneath a coconut shell, we will always have an opportunity to meet someone new and especially during this holiday season. This reminded me of what my Malaysian mom Nyah told me a long time ago about her role as a mother. She said being a mom is all about making a positive difference in her childrens’ lives. Whether by nature or by instinct I believe all moms have the same tendency to do just that.
Taking this a step further, whenever we encounter someone, we will always affect his or her life in some way. This impact can be verbal or nonverbal. If we are mindful of this, then we can plan to make each impact a positive one.
More often than not, it is the nonverbal impact that gives others their first impression of us. The verbal impact that follows is more of a validation of their first impression, or it will nullify it completely, which sometimes can be bad for us.
