I read somewhere recently that positive people are far more likely to be successful. I wish I could remember the details because it was fascinating. A study was done by looking at the authenticity of the smile in school photo’s – apparently there is a muscle in every persons face that just cannot lie. If you are truly happy this muscle moves – it adds the glint to your eyes. Those who were authentically happy in school photo’s – were far more likely to be successful twenty years on.
I know that ever since I won the ‘jelly bean in a jar guessing game’ at the age of eight at primary school I have thought I was a lucky person. And my luck continues. Therefore when I read this quote sent to me from my friend JC… I rather liked it.
- "Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."
Samuel Ullman (1840-1924, Educator, Writer and Poet)
