Forget What Anyone Tells You to the Contrary!
by Connie Podesta
Listen, there’s all kinds of people in the world. Those who will lift you up and those who drag you down. And some who are quick to tell you that getting ahead, succeeding, doing a great job at work all has to be an effort in drudgery, dullness and nose to the grindstone. Truth is? Some of the most successful people on the planet LOVE what they do every day. They have FUN with it. And even the parts of work that are well — WORK. They make it fun. They find a way to enjoy the day.
I get it – don’t get me wrong. Lots of people are stuck in jobs they don’t really enjoy because it pays the bills and they haven’t found something else yet. But that doesn’t mean you have to walk through each day miserable and unfulfilled. Whatever you do – you can find a way to keep things positive, show your stuff and make the most of it.
How? I’ve found these two components are worth their weight in gold…
1. Keep your sense of humor. Find the things that make you smile and keep them top of mind. Humor can make almost anything bearable.
2. Be your best. A lot of the people that truly can’t stand to face the day are just ‘clocking in.’ They’re not engaged, not trying very hard and have given up. Those people that make it a point to be their very best whether they are an executive or a street sweeper appreciate the purpose and honor of giving their all. Don’t do it for the accolades or the attention. Do it because it’s the right thing to do.
So go on. Have some FUN today. Even if it’s just a chuckle at lunch. What’s that old saying? Your day will go the way the corners of your mouth turn? Smile. Give it your all. Make it fun. Your mindset– your choice.
Fun, it’s the secret to success.
