A Secret to Happiness

By Dr. Robb Thompson

All Of Us Know That Life Is Not Worth living unless we give it our best…

We are all aware that there is no reward for those who only live half-heartedly?

We are very cognizant of the fact that we must perform every task as if we were to sign our name on the finished product…

Only we know when we do our best and, only we can make the decision of our level of performance…

Never Take An Instruction From Those Who Are Unable To Give You A Promotion… Remember, Doing Our Best Must Become A Daily Habit.

As we do our best in one area of life, and see its positive results… we will discover it’s contagious—it will spread to everything else we do!

If I ever did something and didn’t give it my best effort, I would feel as though I wasted my time and the time of those who were counting on me.

What would I think if my barber didn’t do his best? How about my tailor? My mechanic or surgeon?

You just might say, “They’re expected to do their best because every person that comes to them is affected by their mistakes.”

• What about You and me?

• Aren’t people affected by what we do… By our performance?

The coach who doesn’t do his best cannot expect his players to give him their best… We must never expect from others that which we’re unwilling to give of ourselves…

Whether we realize it or not… When we don’t do our best, we indirectly encourage others to be average…

What We Do, No Matter Who We Are, Affects All Those Around Us…

When We wake up in the morning we must decide to do our best… no matter how we feel or the circumstances that are bearing down on us in life…

Think Of This… When Michelangelo’s assistant asked him, “Why are you taking so much time painting the corner of this chapel? No one can see it.”

Michelangelo responded, “God can see it!”

Throughout your life, God sees your work and the attitude with which you do it…

Every time you approach life with a “just good enough” attitude, you abort your future promotion…

Doing your best goes hand in hand with pursuing a life of excellence…

Excellence Is The Attention To Detail, Which Gives Birth To Exceptional Performance, Leading To A Successful Life…

I can assure you of this: The results you achieve in the workplace are in direct proportion to the daily routines you embrace…

And those who give their best are always in the top ten percent of their company’s employees…

Post this question where you can see it :

IS THIS THE BEST I CAN DO?

Think back to your days in school. How many people do you know who really did the best they could do in class, went to lectures, excited, and ready to participate?

Very few, no doubt!

Those are the same people in the workforce today.

Your chances of becoming your best today is determined by what you did yesterday… The greatest predictor of future behavior is past behavior

There Is No One Who Fails In Life Because They Lack Ability… They Fail Because Of Poor Choices…

With this in mind, think about this… Whatever you decide to do today will determine what will happen for you tomorrow…

There’s plenty of room at the top for anyone that’s willing to do their best…

So… have you figured out the SECRET TO HAPPINESS? The secret to happiness is DECISION… Deciding to be happy is a choice!


LESSON TO LEARN

The owner of a growing fancy chocolate company located in New England has a revolutionary philosophy that he adopted after years of working in a large, cold, chocolate processing plant.

At the plant, the employees were discouraged from talking, forbidden to eat any of the chocolate, and expected to keep to their work.

The plant experienced massive turnover rates, and their profit margins steadily declined.

The man, now into his more mature years, decided to open up his own chocolate company.

The building where the chocolates are made is full of bright colors. The chocolates are handmade, and the employees are encouraged to make mistakes, since they could lead to new ideas.

Once the final product is completed, the employees are asked to put their own chocolate trademark on it to show that it was their handiwork.

What the owner has created with this philosophy is a staff of employees who are eager to do their best work, and his profits have reflected their remarkable efforts. His employee’s were happy… These are just a few of the “Secrets” to “A Life Of Happiness”…
