The first time I heard Happy (thank you Pharrell Williams) I was in a spin class. Despite the sweat dripping down my face and the aching in my thighs and butt I found myself smiling... BIG TIME! I know what you're thinking, what does happy have to do with business success.
I could bore you with the science about the impact of happiness on the body and mind and believe me there is a lot to be said but better still...
I don't care how cranky you are, watch and listen to this video and tell me you don't feel like dancing, snapping your' fingers or singing along. Yeah, I saw you, you can't sit still because happiness is contagious. If your' business puts on a happy face I can assure you of this- your customers will be smiling too.
Smiling People Buy More Things
At least they're more receptive to the possibility. Given the choice between a smiling sales person and a grump, who are you more inclined to buy from? Enough said!
Happy People Make Great Employees
The day does not drag on for the happy employee. Happiness is a like a jolt of caffeine; things look and feel brighter and you are charged with a bundle of energy. With a team like that how can you go wrong?
There are many more reasons why happiness contributes to a successful business but why not just get to it. The challenge is to go out there and make it happen in your business. Of course it starts with you. I've already got my plan down; I'll just play the video. If only I could stop dancing I might just get some work done. Hey, at least I won't be alone.
