Word-Of-the-Week #722: Compulsory

June 7, 2018 by  

Compulsory – absolutely required & mandatory. 

How many things do you deal with on a daily basis that is absolutely mandatory? When people tell me to “Have a nice day” my response is always “It’s pretty much compulsory!” Always causes a smile and most times gets a laugh.

Steve Strauss, author of STEVE’S 3-MINUTE COACHING, once again has great insight to share.

“Quote: Fun

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun at what they are doing.” – Dale Carnegie

Coaching Point: I frequently come across people who believe they must strive, struggle, stress, effort, or suffer to achieve outcomes. When quizzed about their approach to life they say it’s the model they learned long ago. Pressed further they report it’s “always” been that way. In other words, they got imprinted with the struggle model before they had a chance to choose. They are being run by their 3-year old self! 

On the other hand, happy highly successful people talk of enjoying what they do and almost chuckle at being paid for it. Furthermore, many have lectured me (gently, lovingly, but pointedly) that it is insane to believe that a journey which is not fun can lead to an outcome which is. 

Do you have fun at what you are doing?”

And speaking of FUN, Memorial Day is the official start of summer. Are you taking a vacation? Have you started planning? If not, just remember…it’s COMPULSORY!

Oh yeah, “And Have a Nice Day!”
