Hold the door open!
Has this happened to you before? Probably,yes! As you walk towards the door of an office or a hotel,the person walking in front holds the door open for you.Do you remember how good it made you feel- if only for that moment? The other person holding the door open for you may have been a complete stranger-but that one act leaves an unforgettable impression in your mind and made you feel you had a caring friend.
Is it not surprising that although we all feel good when someone holds the door open for us,we seldom show such gesture for others? WHY SO?
It is probably because we are all preoccupied with ourselves and obsessed with getting ahead.I would like to share a life changing lessons they don’t teach you in any school: ‘Hold the Door Open’.
We can divide this world into two types of people. Those who push open the door,walk through and let it slam behind them.That is about 97 percent of the population.And there is the 3 percent who open the door and hold it open to allow the next person to walk through.Learn to do that,and you too could join the select 3 percent club.
Holding the door open is not just an act of courtesy,it is a mindset and it reflects on your UPBRINGING.It says you care for people,that you are not so caught up in your own progress that you have scant regards for others.It demonstrate that while you may be in a hurry,you still have time for others.’Hold the Door Open’does not merely make other people feel good.It makes you feel good too.
The amazing habit of holding the door open translates into a behavior of helping and caring.While travelling in a AC coach of a train,when you keep the glass door open for a co-passenger behind you,its a good gesture. At the buffet table,you pick up a plate and offer it to a lady behind you in the queue and the smile you see on her is just priceless.These are all small gestures,but they make a huge difference.Hold the Door Open marks you out as someone special.
Try it.Become an ‘Hold the Door Open’ person.Winning in life is less about naked ambition and more about helping other people win.Someone has rightly said,’Its nice to be important.But it is more important to be nice!’
MAKE A BEGINNING TODAY.HOLD THE DOOR OPEN!
