With “action-reaction”, I am not referring to Newton’s third law of motion. What I mean is that all of our actions result in some kind of reaction from others, whether positive or negative. Smiling at a person can result in making that person happy. That person’s reaction may be to smile back at you, which can in turn make you feel happy too. On the other hand, yelling at someone can result in making the other person cry, get angry, hurt and yell back at you. This negative reaction can make you feel exactly the same way as the person you yelled at. My point is that you get back what you give. Make other people happy and chances are you’ll be happy too.
At my English conversation school (英会話スクール), Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi (スミス英会話 塚口校) in Amagasaki (尼崎市), Hyogo Prefecture, I always try to give enjoyable lessons with a cheerful disposition (my action) which makes students happy (their reaction). That in turn makes me happy too.
This principle can be applied to my school’s promotion work, such as handing out flyers. The way that I make people feel when handing them a flyer is very important. Making them feel good (the action) can result in them calling Smith’s Head Office, speaking to our fantastic Head Office team, booking a free trial lesson at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi and ultimately joining my school (the reaction).
Make other people happy and chances are you’ll be happy too. It’s a great recipe for life. (^.^)
