I just finished a two day conference that incorporates a totally new approach to sales at my business. Part of the homework I had to do before the conference involved reading a book and filling out numerous worksheets to get me to the positive attitude equivalent of Jim Carrey in Yes Man. (You can see it is still a work in progress.) I had the perfect example of this attitude, however, from my fabulously precocious niece, Eva.
Eva: I'm going to be a ballerina when I grow up.
Grandma Mim: You are?
Eva: Yeah, because I'm really good at being pretty.
Don't you love that? She is really good at being pretty and is confident enough to say it.
I'm home this morning from work to do all the things I didn't get done this weekend: Laundry, cleaning, pay bills for work. But I am afraid to go back into the laundry room. The last time I was in there a chunk of floor from the bathroom above fell on my head. The remodel marches on.
