It’s all about making people happy

I started being a tour guide in Alaska part time for a little extra cash and to get out and about.

I did some guiding a few years ago and thought it might be fun to do again.

As I took some people out yesterday and taught them about our beautiful community and state, I realized how much I enjoy making people happy.

Every person that was on my tour left with a smile and a thank you. As I said goodbye, it was like I was saying goodbye to a whole group of new friends.

If more people would make it their daily mission to make other people around them happy, think what a difference it would make in the world.

It could completely eliminate war and a great deal of suffering. There would be no domestic violence. There would be a lot less crime because people would be thinking of others instead of themselves.

So what are you going to do today?

As for me, I’m going to go out and make some more people happy.

Have a beautiful day.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Are you a glass half full or a glass half empty kind of person?

Sometimes, believe it or not, people don’t really know or haven’t even thought about it.

Is it important for you to know? Maybe. It’s all in how to talk to yourself.

I live in a place where it rains 70% of the time. There are some people who just can’t tolerate the rain and end up leaving. It’s just too much for them. But they often have missed the message of the rain. This is a temperate rainforest with huge trees and thick vegetation. It couldn’t exist without the volume of rain. The salmon that come up streams to spawn need the rain to provide both water levels and cool water temperature necessary for survival. The stunning beauty and majesty of the area that attracts millions of visitors every year relies on the rain.

The rain is definitely a positive…at least that’s the way I see it. I love the sound of rain on the roof.

Successful people tend to be optimistic. Their failures are looked at as stepping stones.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas A. Edison.

Here’s a little quiz I found to determine if you are an optimist or not.

Have fun with it:

Recognition keeps your team happy

I worked for a guy who never told his employees anything good about what they were doing.

He was sure to point out when you screwed up and tell you you could be replaced. One woman worked for him for over 10 years and he never recognized her contribution to the company.

It was not a happy place to work. You did your job and went home.

If you have a network marketing company, you need to keep your team engaged and happy with recognition. It’s really easy these days to sponsor a team mate using the internet and then forget they exist.

Constant contact and recognition for even the smallest gains is necessary to keep your team. Without it, they are guaranteed to quit.

Napoleon Bonaparte knew the secret and he nearly conquered all of Europe.

He said,  “I have made the most wonderful discovery, I have discovered men will risk their lives, even die, for ribbons and men will also die to avoid having their ribbons taken away.”


What ways have you found to give your employees or team members the recognition they deserve?

Leave a comment.
