Do you ever get in those bad moods, where you just want to fight with someone and not anyone in particular? You are just cranky and having a bad day.

These moods can cause a lot of problems, especially when you are in a people business, where you have to be around people, to do your job.

"The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude.."
Dennis S. Brown

Well, I had one of those moods this week, and I started thinking about; if I have these days, then a lot of people have these days; and I was wondering what they do to snap themselves out of it; so I started asking around"

"What do you do to turn around a bad day?"
Well to say the least, this was really fun, the array of answers were pretty random, and sometimes as different as black and white, but in some ways there was also a lot of similarities.

I wanted ideas on how the average person deals with things, not a psychologist.

I feel when we use our natural intuitiveness; we can figure these things out naturally. And, I think all of us can relate to this a lot easier.

Caution: Try to stay by yourself until your mood changes so you do not say or do anything you will regret.

I got some great answers that I felt would help all of us, the next time “WE WANNA’ FIGHT”. And, the best thing is, most of these answers are things that we can do in 30 minutes or less, and they don't have to cost a cent.

MP says: I listen to really good dance music, and I like to watch romantic comedy's that make me feel happy.

YC says: I put on all of my best jewelry; get in a nice hot bath with a box of chocolates very nearby; and I read an Autobiography. Then I realize their life is so much more complicated than mine and how wonderful my life really is.
I talk to my really good friends who always make me feel better, and say positive things to me. I don't believe I could get through these times without my family, and really good friends who love me.

MK says: I listen to music from when I was in High school, when I had no responsibility and life was simpler

TT says: I like to go for a drive to the ocean in my convertible, so I can feel the sun and smell the ocean air. I grew up at the beach and this brings back great memories that turn my mood around fast.

EP says: I like to journal and I like to remember happy times in my life. I make plans to do something fun after work or on the weekend and just planning and thinking about it makes me happy.

MS says: I like to go to the local coffee house (Starbucks) and enjoy a nice cup of coffee and people watch. Or, I like to call an old girlfriend or college buddy and catch up; and I like to get a massage on a whim!

RM says: Now that I am older I give myself 10 minutes just to wallow in self pity, and then I say no more; I need to get on with my day. When I was younger I would wallow in self pity for days, but it never did any good, it just made me more miserable.

TT says: I read the book of John in the Bible, it has a calming effect on me and it makes me feel refreshed.

ME says: I listen to the Christian radio channel K-WAVE on my way to work and on my way home from work every day, and it helps keep me from getting in a bad mood.

RR says: I ride my Harley as fast as I can to get my heart thumping; and I like to go into the kitchen and cook with my wife.

GM says: I go to a quiet spot and I pray for God to give me patience, so I do not get mad and start a fight with someone.

TP says: I like to do word searches and play solitaire.

ET says: A walk helps, like walking my dog; going into the garage and building something crazy, or lay down and read a book…

TJ says: I like to sometimes just have a few hours on a bad day just zoning out in front of the TV, when they have the marathons on. Like Bonanza or the Outer Limits, and the old stand-by of getting some ice cream and eating it right out of the tub! That is: for the ladies that don’t watch their weight like they should, like me. Indulgence is always great in small quantities, because if we did it all the time it wouldn’t be as fun.

BEB says: I polish my toes and then wear high heels. It makes me feel pretty.

TT says: I pray about everything that is bothering me, and then I let it go.

ERT says: I take a deep breath and Stop and think, before I say anything that is going to make it worse.

DKM says: If I'm having a blue day, I take a drive and look at all the beautiful things around me, like the beautiful mountains and the ocean; and in that time you can see others in their everyday life; and you’re bound to find something that will make you smile, or make you realize that what you’re down about is not as bad as it may seem. Believe me, there is nothing we need to be more thankful for than our health, at any given moment it can be gone! So don't put your values on the monetary things in life, but appreciate all the beautiful people, your surroundings and your family, the things that matter the most is what matters most!!!

Y and P say:
We go outside and enjoy nature, when the sunlight touches our bodies it energizes us.

NH says: memory creating…..some of my best memory makers is getting up on a Sunday, when I could sleep in , instead I get my daughter, our swimsuits and reading material, sheets..etc., and head to the gulf. This is a big deal, because we are not going to worry about the laundry and cleaning, NOT TO MENTION I'M ENORMOUS IN MY SWIMSUIT…no no , not going to think about that. Just going to get bottled water, and bagels, and watch the sun come up and enjoy the surf, and watch dolphins! Every time I have gone to do this, the dolphins show up. Its magic

PD says: I take 5-10 minutes and stretch my legs, back and arms... While I am doing this, I think of 5 things that make me lucky to have the great life I have, and I think of my friends.

YM says: I like to spend time with my children, usually their innocence, joy and hunger for life rubs off on me and makes me count my blessings… I like to put on my favorite outfit and go to the Salon to get my hair done… and then ask my better half on a date. I like to eat my favorite food,

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Abraham Lincoln

As you were reading through all of the different answers, did you notice they were all saying a lot of the same things, but in different ways.

Be by yourself, re-energize your battery - A lot of times, these moods are caused by doing too much and expecting too much from ourselves.

  • Go outside and enjoy the fresh air, and take a 15 minute walk

  • Go for a 15 minute drive, and listen to your favorite channel

  • Go to a quiet spot and pray, even if you just sit in your car

  • Read for 15 minutes, or at least one page from a positive book, a book that makes you smile

  • Write for 15 minutes in your journal

  • Think about 5 good things in your life

  • Call a good Friend who loves you

  • Take a 30 minute power nap

  • Do something for yourself that makes you feel pampered

  • Turn on the music that makes you feel happy

  • Make plans for something fun, to do in the future

  • Get around positive people

  • Do something creative with your hands

  • Do something that brings back good memories, like cooking, going to a special place you used to go when you were a kid, listening to your high school music.

  • Do something that makes you appreciate your life, like spend time with those who are less fortunate.

Meditate on: whatever things are true, whatever things [are] noble, whatever things [are] just, whatever things [are] pure, whatever things [are] lovely, whatever things [are] of good report, if [there is] any virtue and if [there is] anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.

Philippians 4:8

Murphy's plough-(This is a good little story that I think we can all relate to at least one time in our life.)

McGinty, a farmer, needed to plough his field before the dry spell set in, but his own plough had broken.

"I know, I'll ask my neighbor, farmer Murphy, to borrow his plough. He's a good man; I'm sure he'll have done his ploughing by now and he'll be glad to lend me his machine."

So McGinty began to walk the three fields to Murphy's farm.

After a field of walking, McGinty says to himself, "I hope that Murphy has finished all his own ploughing or he'll not be able to lend me his machine..."

Then after a few more minutes of worrying and walking, McGinty says to himself, "And what if Murphy's plough is old and on its last legs - he'll never be wanting to lend it to me will he?.."

And after another field, McGinty says, "Murphy was never a very helpful fellow, I reckon maybe he won't be too keen to lend me his plough even if it's in perfect working order and he's finished all his own ploughing weeks ago....."

As McGinty arrives at Murphy's farm, McGinty is thinking, "That old Murphy can be a mean old fellow. I reckon even if he's got all his ploughing done, and his own machine is sitting there doing nothing, he'll not lend it to me just to watch me go to ruin..."

McGinty walks up Murphy's front path, knocks on the door, and Murphy answers.

"Well good morning Mr McGinty, what can I do for you?" says Murphy.

And McGinty says, with eyes bulging, "You can take your bloody plough, and !#%#! up your !!%%##!!!!!!

Do you still ‘wanna’ fight?

with love,

What Should I Do?

What Should I Do?Tammy Taylor

First of all, No more excuses, and No more procrastinating.

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.

William Arthur Ward

Get out a pen & paper and write these goals down:

  1. Three "baby step goals", you want to accomplish in the Next Month.
  2. One "Big Goal", you want to accomplish in the next 3 Months.

If you are having a problem trying to think about what goals you would like to achieve, I have written down a few examples to get your creative juices going:

  • Make client cards ( make sure you have your clients full name, home address, Cell phone #, e-mail address and birthday) for every client.

  • Follow up on all your new clients by mailing or e-mailing a little “Thank You” note or “Thank You” card.

  • Write out Birthday cards for all your clients that have a Birthday this month, and have them ready so you can give it to them on their next appt. or mail it to them.

  • Sign up for a Tammy Taylor Class.

  • Start promoting your “Client Referral” program.

  • Clean out your station.

  • Organize your products by procedure: Acrylic nail Products in one basket, Manicure and Pedicure Products in another basket, etc...

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”

Helen Keller

Today I want you to write down the start of your Plan; just a couple of sentences on each of your goals, and about how you are going to start achieving them; then put them in a place where you will read them every day.

#1 baby step goal ______________________

#2 baby step goal ______________________

#3 baby step goal ______________________


One Big Goal ______________________

You must have a Plan; the Plan doesn’t have to be perfect, because if you wait till it's perfect, you will never get started.

Remember, a Plan can only be perfected as you go, because so many things change daily in our family and business.
(We have to adapt our Plan daily, to keep it going!)

Or, if you are waiting for the perfect timing, Or, until you have enough money to get started: You could be waiting forever and wasting today.

Just take little baby steps, every day, diligently working your Plan, and in 3 months you will look back and not believe what you have accomplished.

Learning “How to” do a full set of nails in under one hour, was a huge accomplishment for me. My first set of nails took 8 hours, and they all fell off, but now I have the World’s record for the fastest set of nails in less than 20 minutes. I am so glad I didn’t wait until I was perfect, to do another set of nails or I would still be waiting, 28 years later.

“It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.” Babe Ruth

I have been in the nail business 28 years; since I was 18 years old; and the years have flown by, even though sometimes it has felt like I was going in slow-motion and uphill. I kept working on my “Plan” with a capital “P”; Not a capital “P” for perfect, but a capital “P” for “Plan!” Now I look back over the last 28 years, and can’t believe what has been accomplished.

Look back at all of your accomplishments, and you will see there are a lot more than what you might think.

Here is a cute story about how "We will never know what we are capable of unless we try".

The Greatest General
Let me tell you about a man who died and met Saint Peter at the pearly gates. Realizing Saint Peter was wise and knowledgeable, he said, "Saint Peter, I have been interested in military history for many years. Tell me, who was the greatest general of all times?"

Saint Peter quickly responded, "Oh, that's a simple question. It is that man right over there," as he pointed nearby.

The man said, "You must be mistaken, Saint Peter. I knew that man on earth. He was just a common laborer."

"That's right, my friend," replied Saint Peter. "But he would have been the greatest general of all time -- if he had been a general."

Author: Neil Eskelin

--- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---

The most important thing I have learned about business and life is, "Keep trying and even when it gets really tough Never Give Up, and Never Give In!"

Then, we will know that we did accomplish everything we were capable of.

With love,

Tammy Taylor

Why Should I ?

Why Should I ?Tammy Taylor
This seems to be a very popular thought right now.

We, as adults, probably do not say these exact words out loud anymore, like we did when we were kids; especially when we did not want to do something.

But, we still say them, we just disguise them using other words like:

  • I don't need to make changes right now; this is just a little phase we are going through; (Why should I do more?).
  • I am better than most of the people I know, (Why should I do more?).
  • I have already paid my dues, why should I have to do this grunt work again; (Why should I do more?).
  • It's not me, It's the people I work with, OR; It's not me, It's the people who work for me, (Why should I do more?).
  • I already do more than anyone else, why should I be the only one working; (Why should I do more?).
These are acceptable disguises for the same words:

What is the definition of COMPLACENT?
pleased, especially with oneself or one's merits, advantages, situation, etc.;
often without awareness of some potential danger or defect;
"If we sit by and become complacent and put our heads in the sand, we're complicit."
Shelley Morrison

What is the definition of APATHY?
lack of interest or concern, indifferent or unresponsive,
absence or suppression of passion, emotion, or excitement
"Apathy - If we don't take care of the customer, maybe they'll stop bugging us."
Larry Kersten

Question: Why Should I Do More?
Answer: Being Complacent and/or Apathetic WILL RUIN a GOOD BUSINESSES, and put NEW or STRUGGLING BUSINESSES…
OUT OF BUSINESS.And, do you know what the worse thing is about being complacent or apathetic? IT IS CONTAGIOUS! Everyone around you will start acting the same way, because it is the easy way, the do nothing way.When a decision needs to be made you have the choice: Am I going to do something about it, or am I going to ignore it? Either way you made the decision, ignoring it is your decision; just like doing something about it is your decision. So, when someone says, don't look at me I didn't make the decision, yes, they did. Maybe even more so than the person who did make the decision, and just because their decision happened to be wrong, at least they tried to do something.

Very seldom will a business go out of business if the owner and the people are trying really hard, but they are making mistakes; a business can survive mistakes, BUT, a business cannot survive DOING NOTHING.This is what I have always told everyone who has ever asked my advice, about how to have a successful career or business; "Be the very best at whatever you do, it does not matter if you are a janitor or you run a multi-million dollar company, just be the best at it, AND you will be successful"So, when I came across this story about the million dollar lesson, I wanted to share it with you.
A Million Dollar Lesson
Author: Petey Parker
Source: Heart At Work
Editor: Jack Canfield and Jacqueline Miller

A cab driver taught me a million dollar lesson in customer satisfaction and expectation. Motivational speakers charge thousands of dollars to impart his kind of training, to corporate executives and staff. It cost me a $12 taxi ride.

I had flown into Dallas for the sole purpose of calling on a client. Time was of the essence and my plan included a quick turnaround trip from and back to the airport.

A spotless cab pulled up. The driver rushed to open the passenger door for me, and made sure I was comfortably seated before he closed the door. As he got in the driver's seat, he mentioned that the neatly folded Wall Street Journal next to me was for my use. He then showed me several tapes and asked me what type of music I would enjoy.

Well! I looked around for a "Candid Camera!" Wouldn't you? I could not believe the service I was receiving! I took the opportunity to say, "Obviously you take great pride in your work. You must have a story to tell." "You bet," he replied, "I used to be in Corporate America. But I got tired of thinking my best would never be good enough. I decided to find my niche in life where I could feel proud of being the best I could be. I knew I would never be a rocket scientist, but I love driving cars, being of service, and feeling like I have done a full day's work, and done it well. I evaluate my personal assets and... wham! I became a cab driver. One thing I know for sure, to be good in my business, I could simply just meet the expectations of my passengers. But, to be GREAT in my business, I have to EXCEED the customer's expectations! I like both the sound and the return of being 'great', better than just getting by on 'average'.

Did I tip him big time? You bet!

All Nail Technicians; we can be Great with just a few simple goals we can set for ourself.

  • When a client calls in for an appt. come in a little early or stay a little late if needed.
  • Clean your station and waiting area, in between clients.
  • Make sure the magazines are up to date and set out neatly.
  • Offer your client a cup of coffee or lemon water, before you start their service.
  • Keep the bathroom clean and tidy a few times a day.
  • Sweep the front of the salon in the morning.
Being Great at Customer Service is not difficult, it just takes caring about your client, and your business.
With love,
Tammy Taylor

Every time we interact with a client, we need to think "is this how I would like to be treated".

This is a very simple philosophy, that teaches us how we can run our businesses better.

The Golden Rule
"The Sermon on the Mount"
[12] "Do for others what you would like them to do for you.
This is a summary of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
(Matthew 7:12 NLT)
