“Good afternoon gaz, in regards to my application of your training I’ve definitely had the opportunity to use what you’ve taught us behind the stick. I never really thought about it but I do meditate before a shift, it usually doesn’t last long but just a few moments of silence to myself goes a long way & thank you for the meditating stone I’m sure it will help me in future meditations.

“As far as mindfulness behind the bar it becomes more and more relevant what you said ‘people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they won’t forget how you made them feel’ I keep that in mind constantly when I’m bartending simply because people feed off your energy and if you put out bad vibes and make people feel uncomfortable or unwanted then that’s gonna reflect on their experience, but if you put out positive energy, good vibes, and start a shift with a good mentality then that will result in happier guests, more tips, and getting tail more often.

“I’ve always had a hard time asking people for help simply because I have that ‘Do it yourself’ mentality but I can see how saying ‘I Need your help’ can be applied in a time of need, I will definitely be using that technique to get out of situations.

“As far as Changing my reality, I feel I can apply this to my co-workers simply because I’ve had tumultuous relationships with some of my co-workers and by changing my mental state and interacting with those co-workers in a positive fashion I’m slowly but surely improving my working relationships with those people, now my work doesn’t seem too much of a burden.

“Thanks again for everything Gary I learned a lot and had an amazing experience, I’m going to remember this forever…”
