“It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it
Are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky!
Some people are much more…oh muchly much-much more
Unlucky than you!”
-Did I ever tell you how lucky you are? – Dr. Seuss
The fastest path to being lucky is noticing and looking out for others. There are habits that you can acquire whether you are an introvert or an extravert. People around you see your energy, even though you think they don’t. First moment you walk into the office, think about what emotion you choose to project today. As you walk on to your bus, or airplane or meeting room, make eye contact and acknowledge others. As you leave a conversation, thank the people who have cared for you. Very small actions create contagious behavior – good or bad.
“A person’s a person no matter how small.”
- Horton Hears a Who
“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing’s going to get better. It’s not.
- The Lorax
