Christmas is just around the corner and it’s safe to say, I’m feeling excited.
Yep: I love Christmas. I love the silly games, seeing family and friends, chilling out, and roaring fires.
Despite all the shite going on in the world, it’s a chance to stop focusing on the badness that – just for now – you can’t do anything about. And it’s a chance to give something to those who have nothing (for me, it’s a bundle of warm stuff for refugees because on top of all the horrors they’re fleeing, Europe is bloody cold at this time of year).
But this year, I’ve been busy and away for what seems like half of December.
So I’m going to have to drink all the gin from my ginvent calendar at once, I reckon.
This year, spread a little happiness.
And to help you find your happiness, I gift you this meme.
S’important to remember that, I think.
You make your own happiness. You make your own success.
But perhaps with a little help?
Yes, often with a little help, or a lot of help.
Or at least, guidance.
People tell me I’m inspirational. That usually makes me shuffle my feet and look slightly uncomfortable – but it’s a lovely thing to hear. And that’s great, if I inspire you, that’s fantastic.
But what I really want to do is get you taking action. Inspiration is no good without perspiration. Nowt happens until you get off your arse and make the things happen.
Now, don’t misunderstand me: I’m not accusing you of sitting around waiting for stuff to happen to you. But are you doing the right things? Because if you keep on doing all the things you’ve been doing, you’ll keep getting the same results you’ve always got.
Are you happy with those results? Would you like better results?
Vicky Fraser is a copywriter, author, and entrepreneur. She really did run away with the circus… but when she’s not swinging from a trapeze, she’s showing other copywriters and small business owners how to work with better clients, make more money, and stop missing bathtimes, first words, and dinners with angry partners. In fact, she wrote the book on it. Get your copy here.
PS. Why not treat yourself – and you business – to a copy of my book for Christmas. You can get it here.
