“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.” -Dale Carnegie
Dale Carnegie may not be with us any longer but he’s still very much alive in the books he has written. I have just read two of his books and all I can say is “wow”. During the building process I am experiencing (yawn) it is thanks to Mr Carnegie that I have actually coped – not well all the time – most of the time.
If you think about the statement above it’s extremely complex. What its saying is “be happy” no matter what. I have a friend who is terminally ill. My friend has been extremely brave and SO positive in dealing with his pending demise. He has decided to live the rest of his life to the full. He has surrounded himself with an amazing support group made up of medical staff, family and friends and everyone is flocking to him because he is so positive. You and I are HEALTHY. We have the rest of our lives to do with our lives as we please and we need to use this GIFT and EMBRACE it. (Yes, I am speaking to myself).
What does noise, dust, inconvenience and the odd spider bite matter? Hay fever, asthma and sinus can be controlled with medication and most of the time it’s not life-threatening. There is a song that used to go like this: “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. Do you know it? Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv-Fk1PwVeU
What does being happy have to do with our little businesses? The answer is “Everything”. When we adopt the correct mindset, we attract positivity into our lives and this overflows into our business.
Get rid of all the “buts”, “if only’s”, “can’t”, “don’t know enough”, “haven’t got clients”, “only got 1 client”. Choose. Choose Life. Choose Success. Choose to be Happy.
“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower, and draws all good things toward you.” — Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
