Two typical days in anybody’s life – One day is when you feel you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Nothing seems right. You arrive at work all flustered, shoulders sagging and head hanging. The computer hangs up. The files don’t make any sense. The icing on the cake is when you get yelled at by your boss for no apparent reason.
The other day is when you woke up smiling, put on your best clothes and love the way you look. You arrive in office shoulders pushed back, chest up and head held high. Your computer hangs up again but you just call customer service. A jam packed day but you go through each of the tasks with a smile and end up finishing faster than you estimated. Your boss tries to start his customary brush down but you deflect it with the outstanding results of one of your new initiatives.
On comparison, things that had to go wrong would have gone wrong anyway. The difference between the two days lies in your approach and confidence levels. If you start your day already bogged down, then it’s only going to go downhill from there. However, if you start with a smile and head held high, your confidence will not let you down.
