Quotations must be credited. “I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.” Martha Washington “Happiness” is a positive word that has a huge impact on every individual. Interestingly, those who pursue it seldom find it and those who find the real joy within themselves stay happy always! As Martha Washington says, it is our approach to a situation that decides our happiness or misery. Money, career, fame or relationships might be different sources of happiness, but if you are not happy with yourself, nothing matters! So are there any ways to stay happy and feel awesome? Read our cover story by Jude Bijou and get ready for your happiness journey. “Respect” is yet another great word that has a huge significance especially in our professional life. Since most of us spend one third of our life at work, creating a pleasant workplace atmosphere is important. Among many others, one of the ways to achieve that is to treat your coworkers with respect, says Jody Anderson in her article Earn Respect at Work. She suggests 9 unique “tricks of the trade” which will hopefully guide you through the intricate notion of displays of respect at work, and prove helpful both on a professional and personal level. “Success” is definitely what all of us strive for. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy, according to author Jim Stovall. In his article Identifying Success, he brings home a great truth that there is no success in your life unless it is your own success. When it comes to your personal and professional success, you determine the details and no one else. One of the most important achievements in your journey towards personal excellence is overcoming fear. Most of us have experienced the fear of public speaking at least once in life. Author Ruth W. Crocker in her article Public Speaking in Business says the goal is to learn the tricks of the trade that will enable you to take control of stage fright, rather than letting it control you. Read her inspiring and informative article and feel the difference. We also have a great bunch of other interesting and thought-provoking articles for you in this issue of Personal Excellence. Enjoy reading and do not forget to mail us your feedback!! We believe that there is no better way to connect with people than by sharing your inspirational stories with them.
