Life’s ABC’s

A successful life isn’t about how many toys you have or the amount of money you have acquired.  Many times we find that it also isn’t about your friends and foes, but rather about yourself.  How you react to life will depend how successful it really is.
Life’s ABC’s – Attitude, Beauty, and Character – are my keys to a successful future.Attitude

at·ti·tude noun ˈa-tə-ˌtüd, -ˌtyüd
: the way you think and feel about someone or something
: a feeling or way of thinking that affects a person’s behavior

Obviously, what you think and feel about a certain person or situation goes hand in hand in how you react to it.  Do you find yourself with dislike towards a coworker?  More times than not, that dislike will show in the workplace and in your work.  Happy thoughts make a happy day.Beauty

beau·ty noun ˈbyü-tē
: the qualities in a person or a thing that give pleasure to the senses or the mind
Beauty. (n.d.). Retrieved June 4, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/beauty
Physical beauty is not everything, it’s a plus, but not essential.  Stay beautiful…on the inside.  Keeping true to yourself and your personal beliefs is always important.  Your looks can only get you so far in this crazy life.

“No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt


Character

char·ac·ter noun ˈker-ik-tər, ˈka-rik-
: the way someone thinks, feels, and behaves : someone’s personality
Character. (n.d.). Retrieved June 4, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/character
These days, an employer – even a complete stranger – will judge your character via social media.  An in person interaction is pretty much unnecessary in today’s society.  If you’re willing to put it online, you’re willing to say it.  Can you represent your program, school, and community in a manner that is acceptable to you or to your family?
Life is hard, and it is almost impossible to make everyone happy.  You only have one chance, make it worth while – for you.
