Fist Pump Friday!!!!
Earlier this week I had the privilege of attending a dinner event in which Bert Jacobs was the key note speaker. Bert is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Optimist of Life is good®. While his speech was directed towards small business development, his approach can be applied to just about anything in life. According to Bert; He is an ordinary individual. The only place that he is exceptional is that he is tremendously optimistic. That’s what makes him successful. With 100 million dollars in annual sales without a single penny spent on advertisement, he’s doing something right. For Bert, the glass has always been half full.
“You gotta wake up in the morning, pound your chest a little, and say, I’m gonna do something today.”
Regardless of your goal specifics, your mindset will either help or hinder. If you say you can’t do something, your probably gonna be right all the time with that attitude. On the other hand, with a positive attitude – Optimism can take you anywhere.
Below is a short video that is very similar to the speech that I attended. Bert sees opportunity where others see obstacles. How is your attitude effecting your goals??
