Let’s start this week with some important questions. Are you happy? Do you smile? Do you laugh? Are you fun? Are you confident? Do you exude confidence when you’re around others and are people excited to be around you?
When you’re around people that smile, it makes you want to smile. When you’re around people that are laughing, you want to know, “What’s so funny?” Everybody wants to be included in the fun. Everybody wants to be liked. Everybody wants to be happy. Everybody wants to be around people that makes them feel good. So, are you making people feel good?
Try this the next time you’re talking to somebody. Smile. Smile when you’re talking to them and show some interest. If they say something that seems a little funny, laugh or give it a chuckle. Don’t be fake or phony but look for those areas of opportunities where you can make them feel good, which in turn makes you feel good, and people will want to be around you.
Be positive. Be happy. Don’t talk about negative things. There’s enough of that on the news. Don’t gossip. Don’t talk about others, but instead, talk about possibilities. Be confident, be fun and be positive. This also reflects on your business. We all enjoy doing business with those we like, so be that person!
Something to Think About
Remember the book, How to Win Friends And Influence People? You can read that 67 times, but if you don’t take action and do these things, your life doesn’t change. Do you want to change your life for the better? Be happy. Be positive. Be fun. Be friendly. Smile. Laugh.
Find reasons to smile and be happier this week.
