Rest assured, these are original.
Have you ever seen the quote, "Be happy, it drives those around you crazy."
Well I saw that quote today on the back of a Splenda packet.
Here are 2 ways to put that into practice. as with all my ideas, these are not politically correct. So Brace Yourself:
#1) In the unlikely event that your friend, acquaintance, doctor, lawyer, teacher or cleaning help begins to talk to you about the latest politics (haha), attempt to guesstimate in your mind what they're going to say before they say it. After you do this a few times, you will end up feeling quite smug and content with your inflated sense of intelligence.
#2) Pick an inspiring sentence, phrase, truism or motivational phrase that deeply speaks to you. Pick a tune that can go with it. Now put away your cell phone and all forms of distraction and sing this statement again and again for about 5 minutes, or until you are in a really good mood. Allow the words, sensations, pictures and images to come alive inside of you as you get into it. Now watch how other people start to gravitate towards you. I did this the other day in synagogue and a gentleman who has not initiated contact with me in 5 years, did so, as I was practicing it! This really is a powerful secret!
