Accentuate The Positive

Keep your face to the sun and you cannot see a shadow. Helen Keller.


In our current environment, so many seem to delight in finding fault and focusing on the negative, so when I happen across an exception I always make a point to tell her or him how refreshing they are. It immediately brings a smile.

I ran  across an example recently when I approached the concierge at condominium residence in downtown Toronto.

I commented on how pleasant he was as he replied to my inquiry.

“It’s simple,” he said. “I live each day according to what I call the three big E’s.”

“Let me guess, I said, Energy….”

With a smile, he finished the sentence for me. “Empathy and Enthusiasm.”

Energy, empathy and enthusiasm. Can you imagine what our days would look like if everyone subscribed to this simple philosophy?

Looking on the bright side, accentuating the positive… what a difference that can make..

Try it. It’s infectious. I’ll bet you’re smiling… even now, as you read this!
