ENJOY THE JOURNEY: WEAR A SMILE, HAVE FUN AND LIGHTEN UP: Quick Tip

 

Copyright © 2013 By Bobby Borg

 

Perhaps one of the most effective tips on executing your plan can be taken from the famous book How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, first published in 1936. Ready for it? He said: “SMILE.” 

 

According to Carnegie’s research and observation on some of the most super successful people in the world, those who smile tend to be more effective salespersons, businessperson, and leaders. A smile acts like a magnet and draws people closer to you. It sends the message that you are happy inside and out, secure, and confident. 

 

According to Carnegie, a smile can even transform you from whatever state you’re in to a more happy and positive place. Go ahead, try it. Smile, whistle, sing, or laugh out loud. It’s hard to hold onto to any stress, tension, or unhappiness when you do this. 

 

Look, the point is that no one wants to do business with a sour-faced, stressed out, manic, desperate freak who wants to make it so badly in the music industry that he/she creeps everyone out. Remember, this is the entertainment business. If you can’t entertain yourself, how do you expect to entertain others? 

 

So chill out, have some fun and learn to lighten up too. I’m not saying goof off and take a vacation. I’m just passing on some tried-and-tested wisdom: Enjoy the journey!
