# The power of Greeting #

Life treats you well if you greet well’ is a famous Serbian adage. When we greet someone, we send out positive energy and also receive positive vibes from those whom we greet.

A smiling wish goes a long way and demolishes all differences perceived.

Yes, the way we communicate with others is crucial in our personal and professional relationships. Words are powerful, but even more important than — what we say is how we say it.

Our tone of voice makes all the difference

Our tone of voice and delivery can make all the difference in how our message is received. In fact, it is estimated that only 10% of conflict in the world is due to a difference in opinion, while a whopping 90% is due to delivery and tone of voice.

When we greet someone, we are not just greeting that person but the entire universe. Our words and actions have a ripple effect on the people around us and the world as a whole. This is why it is important to be mindful of how we communicate with others, starting with our greetings.

A warm and friendly greeting can make someone’s day and create a positive atmosphere. On the other hand, a cold or rude greeting can put someone on the defensive and set a negative tone for the rest of the interaction.

First impression has a lasting impact

It is important to remember that our first impression can have a lasting impact, so it is worth putting in the effort to make it a good one.

But our communication skills go beyond just greetings. We need to be mindful of our tone of voice and delivery throughout the entire conversation.

It can be easy to slip into negative patterns such as interrupting, raising our voices, or using aggressive language. However, these habits can quickly escalate a conversation into an argument or conflict.

By speaking softly and with kindness, we can diffuse potentially tense situations and create a more productive dialogue. It shows that we are respectful of the other person’s feelings and opinions and can help to build trust and rapport.

There is a beautiful story that reminds me of the power of greeting...

You might have read the story of a person working with a freezer plant. It was almost the end of the day. Everyone had packed up to check out.

A technical snag developed in the plant and he went to check. By the time he finished, it was late. The doors were sealed and the lights were off.

Trapped inside the ice plant for the night without air and light, an icy grave was almost sure for him. Hours passed thus. Suddenly he found someone opening the door. A security guard entered the freezer room with a torch and helped him out.

The person asked the security guard, — how did you know that I was inside ?

The guard said — in this office, you are the only one who greets me in the morning and says bye to me in the evening. You had wished me in the morning, But you did not go out. That made me suspicious.

Friends, a small gesture of greeting someone proved to be a lifesaver.

When we communicate in a calm and collected manner, we are also more likely to be heard and understood.

Remember that, whether we are greeting someone, having a conversation, or communicating through technology, it is important to remember that our words and actions have a powerful impact on the world around us.
