Act as If

Quotes and Notes #132, March 15,

“I’ve always thought that people need to feel good about themselves and I see my role as offering support to them, to provide some light along the way.”--Leo Buscaglia

This is conceptual—I never thought about myself as having a “role.” Perhaps I should. Perhaps we should all adopt a role that calls for both feeling good and for helping others to feel good. It works for me.

Remember, helping others to feel good is one of the most selfish acts you can commit because it pays you back in kind.

My brother, Tom, once said, “If you want to be an artist, first you need to call yourself an artist.” This is a true statement and it applies in many ways. If you want to be happy, first you need to refer to yourself as happy. The key phrase to this concept is “act as if…” If you are not optimistic, act as if…

It works.

Share a smile

Everything is going to be all right.
