Business is just business if you’re not looking for how to be a better person, it just collection money over and over again and I believe that someday you’ll get tired with this routine. I do professional job in wedding photography for over than 10 years and learn so much about ethic, morality, and surely to be better human being, but sadly I could say that there are still so many people that let their business run without soul.
For some people who only concern money than they gonna lose their soul period, I know they might have tons of money in the pocket but without any soul in it than they look like a zombie for whole day.
Today I wanna share to you about what I’ve got and learn about how to be a better person no matter you are a professional, businessman, or even regular mom and dad who working at home.
Why You Must Become a Better Person in Your Life
Life is just too short for being bad people, you born, growing up than die and that’s how we have. Become a better person is not depend on your religion, race, or where you coming from cause you always can become a better person just doing more value for tomorrow than become consistent with it.
If you’re not helping people today than try to do it tomorrow and it’s not that hard. When you don’t know how to better person for tomorrow than try to open the convenient store if for some seniors and that’s is brilliant. If you’re not hug and kiss your wife today and try to hug and kiss her tomorrow, deliver the biggest love ever that you never give to your wife.
Here in my country in Indonesia, if you ever been here for traveling or business than you should know that crossing the street in the middle of people who ride scooter or car is freaking hard. Yes we do have a zebra cross but if you come here than you will see all the scouter will stop over than the zebra cross so that you don’t have any more space to cross the street.
If you just confuse about how to be a better person in the future than you might in a deep stress, it might come from your daily job, activities or habit. As I said before that become a good people is really easy even our parents already teach us when we’re kids. That a basic way of life and that’s how we should do in every single day that we had.
How I Safe My Germany Guest Life After Having Diarrhea in Indonesia
If you read my previous story about how I open and 3 (three) Airbnb property simply by saving my photographer fee than you must know that running a hospitality business is not that simple. It can be simple if I only think about the money and don’t care if there is a guest who got suffering here in my house.
One day I got a nice guest from Germany, they were a nice couple who really humble and friendly and during their stay in my house we just discuss together even they join my kids to play some lego blocks together.
Lately I know that these Germany couple got suffering cause of street food that they ate yesterday, it might be cause of the hygiene or may be to spicy but what I know is they not coming out from their room for one day. I’m afraid to wake them up while they sleep but during the breakfast time I try to knock their door and ask them why they not coming out. Finally told me that they might ate a wrong dish yesterday and they already get hard diarrhea for whole day.
When I start my Airbnb business in 2013 I only open 1 room with AC that bring me to get $12/night so it is little money that I got from renting my house in Airbnb. But what I did when I saw my guests suffering is taking both of them to nearest hospital and help them to cancel all their booked tours to Bromo and Ijen crater in East Java.
Sonja, the Germany woman finally asking me:
“What should I give to you Bima, you help me and my boy friend to hospital and re-schedule all the tours, how much I should pay you?”
I said to her “I don’t need your money and you’re not just a guest for me, you and your boy friend now become my family and don’t need to pay anything for what I did”
I saw that Sonja’s face is changing, she looks down and so grateful for what she got today and that’s how I serve my guest in every single house of Airbnb that I had.
So I hope you know the real example about how to be a better person, it is very simple and due to my case I only pay for the car gasoline for less than $5 but I safe these Germany couple right here in my house. One day, if you meet people who really need your help than go help them with anything that you had. If you just have your hand than help them by your hand, if you see somebody getting thirsty in the street that go but them a bottle of mineral water cause that’s quite enough and it will make you a better person.
How to Be a Better Person – 5 Things That Every Professional Must Do
No matter who you are than become a better person for every single day that you got is a must so let me share 5 simple things that you could do for being a better person:
1 – Help Someone Who Really Need Help With Anything That You Have
Help is not equal with money even it can means a cup of coffee, warm blanket or even information. So no matter where you go than if you see somebody like traveler or senior who really need an assistant for going some where than show it to them.
Talk to them and asking is there any kind of help that you can do than trust me that you gonna feel better after doing this
2 – Get Dinner with Someone Who You Love
I was so honour by having this such beautiful Hong Kong couple who brought me to Maldives during pre wedding session. They thankful so much for my works and love all the photos so much and once I travel to Hong Kong for another photoshoot they just invite me and Nina to have an authentic oriental dinner with private kitchen.
Seriously, there is no guests except us and it was so prestigious!
So much love to meet my previous couple in their hometown and get this tasty dinner and I promise that if I got them in my town that I will do the same or better things too for them.
3 – Be On Time
In every business time management will be the most priority and being on time in every moment is the clue of being better person. Talk about time management doesn’t mean you must wear a luxury men’s watch like Richard Mille RM 011 but get ready for everything before the deadline is one of the best way of having great time management.
Be On Time, if you make a promise of meeting some at 1 pm than make sure you are ready on the location 15 minutes before BUT if you have to late than say apologise 15 minutes before too.
4 – Work Beyond Expectation
Every professional who want to be better person must be work beyond expectation, good is not enough cause you have to be excellent! If you work for your own business than you might work over than 8 hours just like other office employee did. One book ever told me that do your best working till you put 120% on your effort, it means that you must be the hardest worker in the room, just like The Rock said on his instagram feed.
5 – Smile
If you want to know the last clue of how to be a better person than the answer is by giving your best smile to every situation or every person that you had. Smiling is the cheapest and most simple thing that you can do for getting better.
There are thousand of people in this planet who can’t solve their problem because they were too much worry but if you take a deep breath, stay relax, and do the best effort that you can do than everything will run so easy.
I hope this story inspire you as well about knowing how to be a better person for your future. Just do the better thing on each day you had and keep doing for what you do right now. Follow the process and never take a short cut for getting better.
