“Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.” Dale Carnegie
With the exception of today, I’ve had a double dose of success for the past two weeks. Wouldn’t you like all of your employees to have this same opportunity?
Our school just purchased an electronic check-in service. When arriving at work, I swipe in and the card reader speaks to me, “Identification success.” At the close of the day, I swipe out. Again, I am successful, “Identification success.” It’s nice to have a smart card reader that knows a good thing when it sees one.
Today, I forgot to swipe out, and I missed my end of day success perk. If we want to succeed, we do have to learn to celebrate the small things, and it’s even better if we notice them in doubles.
Double dream hands – My co-worker discovered this site last year and we used it to give our students an energy boost during the day. If you start to feel a little down, try it yourself. Just watching this guy makes me laugh out loud.
Success while sitting – Some people don’t even need to stand up to be successful. If you ever feel like you’re not getting anything accomplished, look to these role models. They creatively celebrate the small things in life.
In Thai, we have a funny saying about bragging, “If no one is there to compliment you, you have to compliment yourself.” Not that I’m advocating bragging, but when encouragement from others is lacking, one must find a way to keep moving forward in order to be successful. As David Brinkley once said, “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”
Did you have a double success day today? If not, join our machine in telling yourself, “Identification success,” each time you come and go.
