Most of us have worked in places that are full of happiness and great energy… and places that aren’t. But have you ever stopped to think about who brought the joy and fulfillment to those happy workplaces? It doesn’t just happen! In today’s episode, learn how to bring happiness and positivity with you to work, and the amazing benefits it can have on you and others.









Have you ever worked in a place that just had an awesome energy? Things were very happy. They were very happening. People were excited to be there. Think about what that felt like. And then now, have you ever worked in a place that wasn't as happy? Or maybe it was just depressing. People didn't want to be there. They were miserable. I want you to think about, in each of those environments, what was it that really caused the happiness? The flow, the joy? Part of it, you might say, might be the nature of the work, and certainly that might be the case. Some work can be fun or engaging, some of it may be not so much so. My guess is that's part of the equation. But part of the equation is probably what the people brought. There have been people that have worked in situations that are miserable to some people, and yet the people are happy in them, and vice versa. What I'm going to suggest to you is happiness, joy, motivation, all these things, these are brought into work. Now, if you're saying, Wait, you don't understand. I walked into this place and it was already happy.


Okay, who brought that in? Somebody else brought that in. And if you say, no, no, wait, it was systems. Okay, who put their heart and their soul into making systems, tweaking them, fixing them if something was wrong? Who created that vision that maybe you're so inspired by? Who created the place, whatever it is, somewhere somebody brought happiness, joy, inspiration, love, whatever it is, they brought that into the workplace. And maybe initially, you're the beneficiary of it. You just receive it. You say, Wow, this just happened. It's like when kids grow up in the household and they're like, Wow, this house just happened. The car just happened, the food just shows up. This is awesome. And yet at some point, if you want that to be sustainable, you don't want to just be taking the energy, you want to be giving energy. You want to be in a situation where you are contributing and bringing happiness to that. I encourage you, regardless of your situation, whether you want to stay with the work situation you're in for the next 50 years, or you can't stand to be there another 50 days, while you're there, bring happiness, bring joy, because if you're staying there, it's going to help you in the long run to create a more joyful place and attract more joyful people.


If you're leaving there, it's going to create a better platform for you to leave. Maybe it'll make it easier for you to leave when you want to. Maybe it'll result in a bigger bonus. A lot of people don't realize this. The way you leave an employer, very often, might impact bonuses or goodies that they might or might not have given you. You'll never hear about them because they just choose not to share them. Even more so, if you're in an in between place, you're like, Wait, I'm not sure if I want to stay here or not. See what you can do. See how you can bring happiness and joy into the situation. How you can bring that to work with you. So this reminds me of something one of my uncles said to me once when I was considering whether or not to go to church on a certain day. Now, at certain times in my life, I've gone to church. At certain times I don't. I'm either advertising for nor against. But when I came in that day and I said, you know what, Uncle Tim, I don't want to go to church today. He said, Why not, Wade?


Because I don't feel I'm not going to get anything out of it. And he looked at me, he said, What makes you think that you're going just to get something out of it? What are you going to bring? Maybe somebody needs to see your face that day. Maybe you're going to run into somebody that you're going to talk to and they needed to hear from you. They needed your energy. I encourage you to consider that. In no way, in my suggestion, you stay in an employment situation that you don't like. Certainly, I'm all about evolving and growing and making something better happen. But while you're there, wherever you happen to be, there's only now, you might as well bring happiness to it, joy to it, and see what comes from that. I hope this serves you. I hope this helps you and makes a greater situation for you and the people around you. If you have any questions on this or thoughts or suggestions, let me know. As always, look forward to helping you make more money in less time. Do what you do best so you can create a lifestyle that's more abundant and enjoyable for you, your friends, your loved ones, and your family.


Thank you.
