This week, my business coach, Will Ezell shared a powerful story; and I want to share it with you. This story highlights the key to true happiness. Let us enjoy the story!
I once knew a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today?” So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
“Hmmmm,” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.”
So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.
“Well,” she said, “today I’m going to wear my hair in a ponytail.”
So she did and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head.
“YAAAY!” she exclaimed, “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”
What’s the source to happiness?
Now, imagine for a moment of the happiest people you know. What pictures are you seeing now?
They’re probably smiling, laughing and willingly greeting you!
They’re those people who always seem to be happy—no matter what! They’re happy in good time. They’re able to find happiness even in bad time.
What’s their secret?
Were they born with a happiness gene? Are they simply lucky? Is there something wrong with them?
It’s actually none simple than that.
The secret comes from their perspective like the woman above. They don’t have a special happiness gene. They simply choose to see the silver lining in the cloud. You have the power to make that same choice.
Perspective is EVERYTHING! And it’s the key to your happiness if you know how! People who are happy made the choice to be happy and practice it regularly. If they do it, so can you! For more tips on happiness, personal and professional coaching, call 407-493-7486 and please post your comment below!
