TipsForSuccess: "The Whole World Stinks"

 


"The Whole World Stinks!"

While Grandpa is taking a nap on the couch, his seven-year-old grandson gets some Limburger cheese from the refrigerator and smears it on Grandpa's mustache. (If you've never smelled Limburger cheese, its smell is very strong!)

When Grandpa wakes up, he says, "This room stinks!" He goes to another room and says, "This room stinks." After walking throughout the house, he says, "The whole house stinks!"

Grandpa goes outside and takes a deep breath and says, "The whole world stinks!"

Have you ever noticed how the world seems to change according to your attitude?

Three Examples

1. You read about the bad economy and suddenly worry about your job or business, your lack of savings and your bills. You look outside and the weather seems uncomfortable, the sky seems darker. You notice the people walking by seem to look at the ground more than before. Everyone seems afraid.

2. After you have another argument with your spouse, you go to a movie. You notice that nobody seems to smile. Couples seem to be bored with each other. The movie's happy ending seems phony.

3. Despite the economy, your business made a healthy profit this month. You celebrate at a restaurant where the food tastes great and the waitress is cheerful. When you go outside, the sunset looks glorious. Everyone seems to be smiling.

Why Life Changes


In an article "Is it Possible to Be Happy?" L. Ron Hubbard writes:

"You remember when you were maybe five years old, and you went out in the morning and you looked at the day, and it was a very, very beautiful day, and you looked at the flowers and they were very beautiful flowers.

"Twenty-five years later you get up in the morning, you take a look at the flowers--they are wilted. The day isn't a happy day.

"Well, what has changed? You know they are the same flowers, it's the same world, something must have changed.

"Probably it was you."

"One's attitude toward life makes every possible difference in one's living."

"The day when you stop building your own environment, when you stop building your own surroundings, when you stop waving a magic hand and gracing* everything around you with magic and beauty, things cease to be magical, things cease to be beautiful." -- L. Ron Hubbard
(*gracing = to give beauty, elegance or charm to something)

How can you start building your own environment? How can you make your surroundings more beautiful? How can you remove that Limburger smell from your world?
