March Madness - Day 30

First Impressions Count

If you're like me, you've heard it over and over....

'You'll never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
I've heard it so many times but have often wondered if it's really true.

I'm learning more and more that it is TRUE.

Your first response is the response that people remember.

It will do one of two things:

  1. It will draw people in OR
  2. It will turn people away
Are you pleasant?
Do you smile?
Are you approachable?
Do you respond with an attitude?
Do you feel you are "too good" to respond. 

Thoughts from The Greenhouse Effect:

Oliver: "If the first impression isn't good, especially with the youth population today, you might not be ready for what you say you "really" want. Are you ready to deal with the response others will are going to give you or there the lack of response those will give you if the first impression SUCKS!"

Maddison: "You should have a good reputation because people should have good thoughts on you when they meet or see you."

Logan: "You never know who you are meeting. You may end up meeting a very important person that could help you later in life."

Quiara: "You are always putting on first impressions 24 hours of the day, 7 days a week. One wrong first impression could set you up for a domino effect of failure."

What are your thoughts about first impressions?

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....

The person who constantly ask you about your goals.
The person who continuously shares opportunities with you.
