"There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative." -W Clement Stone
Let's face it: dealing with people is a challenge. Every interaction we have with our coworkers, clients, family members, and friends comes with the human element. We have emotions, different opinions, stress, and busy schedules. We offend others and are offended ourselves. We experience days that begin with drama and spiral downward from there.
But don't forget that there is a choice. Whether you decide you're going to have a good day or a bad one, you're right. Perspective is everything. You can turn a problem into a challenge and an error into a lesson. You can make all the difference in someone else's day with a smile or a kind word, and in turn, make your own day better. Everything we give truly does come back to us in one way or another.
Choose happy. Make today a good day.
