When you meet someone new, what are you drawn to? What turns you off or diminishes your desire to connect with that person?
People naturally gravitate to energetic, enthusiastic individuals. And, studies (and common sense) show that happier people are more successful in all areas of life, including in their careers and their businesses. They even make more money than less happy counterparts.
It's probably easy to realize from your own personal experience that working with someone who's a downer just isn't fun. So, why not capitalize on the power of happiness and turn yourself into a client magnet?
First, answer this. On a scale of one to 10, how happy are you in general? How happy are you with your business right now? How happy you are may have a bigger impact than you realize on how successful you are getting new clients, securing joint ventures and strategic partnerships, and nailing down other business opportunities.
YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR HAPPINESS
The good news is 40% of your happiness is controlled by YOU!
Research psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky explains in her book The How of Happiness that 50% of you happiness is pre-determined by genetics, 10% is based on your circumstances and a whopping 40% is based on what you do and how you think.
