Leadership Minute: Laughing Success


There is little success where there is little laughter. – Andrew Carnegie

Success is the culmination of a lot of hard work, long days, and sleepless nights. It’s the byproduct of defining your dream, setting your goals, and living your passion. And along the way a little luck. But along the way a leader should never sacrifice that success for his or her ability to laugh. Learning how to laugh at yourself will serve you well. How? When you can laugh at yourself and laugh with others it generates positive energy that can help you release much of the stress you deal with each day. It also serves to remind you not to take yourself too serious. Dream big. Work hard. Laugh often!
