Fortune Fridays – Smiling to Success

“The best are not always the happiest but the happiest are usually the best.”

It’s no surprise that successful people are happy and that happy people are in someway successful.  The question is though, which came first? Hint: it’s not about the chicken and the egg.

Of course happiness falls in line after success, but more importantly, success is achieved through happiness.  Positive attitude and often lead to positive results.  Positive commitment to the task at hand can ensure that it is completed to its full extent.  With a negative outlook the job cannot be completed to reach its absolute potential.  Can you imagine yourself doing well at work or home if you are not enjoying yourself?  Turn that frown around and be happy while you journey toward success.  Your smile will be that much brighter and that much wider at the end result.

“When you rise in the morning, form a resolution to make the day a happy one for a fellow creature.”
-Sydney Smith

We share each sunrise with the entire planet. Somewhere at that very moment, someone is watching the sun rise with you. To the east, others have already seen the beauty and have begun their day. Those in the west sleep soundly awaiting their opportunity to watch light shine on the horizon. Share your joy for each day. We are all in this together. Find a friend to enjoy the sunrise with.

When You Are Up, You’re Up

How we spend our mornings will always have a major impact on the rest of our day. Are we waking up happy, or are we waking up sour? Catching the sunrise can help boost our day in the right direction. There is nothing worse than waking up in a bad mood and having that carry over to the rest of the day. A sunrise can be a very powerful event in your day. Let the sunrise put a smile on your face that lasts all day long and makes you want to get up and catch the sunrise the next day.


Day three of the sunrise challenge is done. We’re ready to push over the hump of day four. Has the sunrise influenced your day? Is it setting your day right?

Lift Up with the Day

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

-Marcus Aurelius

Each day for us is a privilege. As you watch each sunrise, reflect on how wonderful your life is. No matter what your aches, pains, problems, and troubles you may have, life is still beautiful. Think of how that sunrise is a testimony to your own life. In the end, the sun will rise on a new day and a new opportunity.
