  • Once recognized, perhaps the quiet yet persistent voice of curiosity doesn’t go away. Ever. Perhaps such curiosity will hurt until we come to understand the beauty of a journey that might never arrive at an absolute answer. and perhaps it’s such curiosity that will lead us to distinguish our own greatness from the mediocrity that stares us in the face. Seth Godin

  • The WIIFY’s of this presentation.
  • I am not an avatar or a saint.
  • I have not completed the transformation myself.
  • This is my open observation.
  • It is meant as an advice and giving tools.
  • Why am I telling you this?
  • Effectiveness of stories on a scale of 1-10
  • 4 Others
  • 6"""""""""Mine"
  • 8"""""""""Yours"
  • 10 Ours
  • Who cares?
  • 5 different groups or tribes of people
  • “ I would do anything to survive” (2%)
  • “Life sucks” (25%)
  • “I am great and you are not” (48%)
  • “We are great” (22%)
  • “Life is great” (2%)
  • The assignment.
  • What I believe in
  • I believe in happy people.
  • What do happy people do differently?
  • 1. Love (vs. fear)
  • People who are really happy, FEAR less and LOVE a lot more.
  • They see each moment, each challenge, each person as an opportunity to discover more about themselves and the world around them.
  • 2. Acceptance (vs. resistance)
  • Happy people understand that you can not really change a situation by resisting it
  • You can defenitely change the situation by accepting that it is there and that there might be a reason for its excistence.
  • They ask themselves the question: What can I learn from this, how can I make it better?
  • Take it from here with the given facts
  • 3. Forgiveness (vs. unforgiveness)
  • Happy people know it is not healthy to hold on to anger
  • “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned”. Buddha
  • 4. Trust (vs. doubt)
  • Happy people trust themselves and they trust the people around them
  • They understand that beliefs become self-fulfilling prophecies and because of that they make sure to treat everybody with love, dignity and respect.
  • 5. Meaning (vs. competing)
  • They do things they do because of the meaning it brings into their lives and because they get a sense of purpose by doing so.
  • They are not motivated by money; they want to make a difference in the lives of those around them and in the world.
  • 6. Praising (vs. criticizing)
  • “ What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size” Carl Jung
  • They do not criticize the absence of behavior they want to reinforce, but every time the behavior is present they praise the person and the behavior
  • 7. Challenges (vs. problems)
  • 8. Selflessness (vs. selfishness)
  • They have an abundant mindset living a balanced life, achieving abundance in all areas of life.
  • They love and dare to dream big, they always listen to their heart and intuition.
  • “Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men”. Goethe.
  • 11. Kindness (vs. unkindness)
  • They are kind to themselves and others and they understand the power of self-love, selfforgiveness and self-acceptance.
  • 12. Gratitude (vs. ingratitude)
  • No matter where they look, no matter where they are or with who, they have this capacity of seeing beauty.
  • 13. Presence/Engagement (vs. disengagement)
  • They know how to live in the present moment, appreciating what they have and where they are, while still having big dreams about the future.
  • 14. Positivity (vs. negativity)
  • No matter what happens to them, they always seem to keep a positive perspective.
  • And by doing so, they tend to irritate a lot of negative and “realistic” people.
  • 15. Taking Responsibility (vs. blaming)
  • Happy people take full ownership over their lives and they rarely use excuses.
  • Happy people understand that the moment you choose to blame some outside force for whatever is happening to you, you are in fact giving in.
  • Help others achieve their dreams and I will achieve mine. ~ Les Brown
  • This is an invitation:
  • Where and when and how are you stepping in?
  • What is my level of awareness?
  • How do I show leadership?
  • Do I play the lead role in the movie of my own life?
  • Change will be obtained if you: ... care more than others think is wise; ... risk more than others think is safe; ... dream more than others think is practical; ... expect more than others think is possible.
  • Time for the assignment.
  • Good luck and have a great time!
