One secret to success for the holidays
Did your parents give you sage advice to guide you? Mine did. Our mom reminded us “Be grateful for what you get, dear.” She’d tell us that often, especially if we were having something for dinner was not our favorite. Our poor mom had to cook all sorts of exotic dishes like cow’s tongue, and kidney stew, yikes. Our dad liked trying new things and he’d run into these unusual dishes in his travels.
I think counting your blessings is of great benefit because you are a happier person and you’ll attract gladness. Did you ever notice when your day starts out with little things going wrong, it tends to continue that way? Could it be because you’re focused on the negative things? Isn’t it true if you get to work late because you’re stuck in traffic, but when you arrive, your customers are grumpy, that’s all you think about?
What if you focus on how fortunate you are to be working instead? What if you try to brighten your grumpy client’s day with humor? Wouldn’t that change your perspective?
This holiday season, remember be grateful for your blessings and you’ll spread joy wherever you go. You’ll make a positive difference to others. If you are able to do that, you have a lovely gift.
Happy holidays, everyone. I hope you are able to celebrate with those you love.
