Put on a ‘happy face’
The title of today’s article is of course the title of a song which was in the hit movie “Bye Bye Birdie” and the lyrics went like this “Gray skies are gonna clear up Put on a happy face Brush off the clouds and cheer up Put on a happy face. Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy It’s not your style You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad You decided to smile. Pick out a pleasant outlook Stick out that noble chin Wipe off that ‘full of doubt’ look Slap on a happy grin And spread sunshine all over the place, Just put on a happy face.” My oh my — what great advice is contained in those lyrics from the song “Put On a Happy Face”.
Yes my friend, if you wish to be consistently successful in life, there’s no doubt about it, you’ve got to develop your PMA, your positive mental attitude. You’ve also got to have high self-esteem if you wish to be successful and maintain that success. Positive people, successful people are happy people and they show the world by the happy, upbeat expressions on their face, that they feel good about themselves, believe in themself and their ability to succeed again and again.
You know, I sometimes meet some who look very sad and to be honest with you, in some cases, they look downright miserable. I of course always ask these people to smile, and when they do and thus put on a “happy face” as the song from Bye Bye Birdie puts it, I guarantee they immediately start to feel a whole lot better, more positive and now in success mode.
Yes my friend, if you’re a really happy person with high self-esteem, you should always have a happy face, as the song puts it. However, if you continually look miserable, there’s something wrong with your mental state — which needs to be dealt with by a professional counselor or life coach. Once you put on a happy face, again you’ll be on your way to success city.
