Leadership Minute: Make Up Your Mind


Abraham Lincoln said, “Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Unfortunately, many people are sitting around waiting on the right circumstances to be in place before they decide to be happy. Typically their reasons focus around a set of external circumstances such as money, good health, or relationships. But Lincoln was right. You are as happy as you make up your mind to be and that more times than not will exclude external circumstances. Why? They will never be perfect. In leadership as in life you choose your happiness and joy not because everything is perfect but because you choose to be regardless of the circumstances. Today, why not choose happiness? It will make your day brighter!
