The past is history, so let it go. The future is a mystery, so let it come. The present is a gift – be truly in the present today and release all your fears (based on the past) and your worries (imagined futures) – this is the work of someone who truly wants to awaken, and break free from the anchors and burdens of dead yesterdays and speculative tomorrows. Be here now they say, easier said than done, I hear you say. But no one can stop us, excep...

The best way to co-operate is to use the energy of the mind to create good wishes and pure feelings towards others and for the success of a task. When I co-operate with others in this way, I will receive their co-operation when I need it most.

Brains? Grit? Luck? Nope, science says the most likely sign that you're going to succeed big time is something else.

The history of business is the story of entrepreneurs, executives, leaders, and employees, all of whom along the way add to the theory of management. For the 20th anniversary of strategy+business, we, the editors, decided to track the milestones of management history. This interactive catalog is the result.

Appreciation is one of the highest emotional states you can experience. When you cultivate gratitude, you’re able to feel true joy and contentment, no matter what you have or don’t have in your life. And since the Law of Attraction states that like attracts like, when you’re grateful for what you already have, you will naturally attract more for which you can be grateful.

Story
Tagline
Share Happiness Evangelist
Introduction
Have you found your destiny? I have! I am an Evangelist of Share Happiness at Bluegreen Vacations where we believe in the power of vacations. In the economics of happiness, we know that more vacations equal more happiness. That being the case, we are simply Gung Ho about the experiences we provide and the talent that helps us make the world a happier place. 

Thanks to Bluegreen Vacations, I have over 17 years experience as an HR professional in a corporate setting. My goals currently center around Inspirational Leadership, developing greater depth in Human Resource Development, adult learning and organizational performance improvement. Strongly committed to the implications of the service-profit chain and realizing value through a work environment populated with satisfied, loyal and productive associates. I believe that truly vital organizations have the potential for untapped levels of performance that capture a balance of the two ultimate outcomes of any large-scale human collaboration (i.e., organizational effectiveness and organizational health). Further, I believe that organizational health enables organizational effectiveness but not vice versa. Organizational Health is then an outcome or the collective destiny for any organization that is up to the creation of a habitat for happiness!
