If YOU want to be happy, be happy.
If you want to be happy, be. Leo Tolstoy
A teacher or trainer who is happy has more power in the learning environment to cater for individual learners – their talents, learning styles and personalities.
Keep it simple. Be happy. Share happy. This opens minds to learning.
Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself. This is such a powerful quality that levels community. To laugh at yourself means that you acknowledge your imperfection and shows that you are accepting of learner’s imperfection. The learning environment created by laughing at yourself when you stuff up, empowers learners to reflect honestly and critically. You have successfully demonstrated reflective practice. Well done for letting go of perfection.
What have you done that warrants a good laugh at yourself?
Happiness is LOVE based
Happiness is loved based. Robert Holden
To create a safe learning environment teachers and trainers have the opportunity to share happiness. Enjoy for job and have fun. The happiness you create within yourself will become infectious. Being positive – in a realistic way opens the human mind up for new opportunities and new learning.
Model happiness to your students. If you demonstrate happiness you may inspire learning that sticks.
What you do everyday matters more than what you do once in a while. Gretchen Rubin
Have you ever met a happy person? Have you ever worked with a miserable person?
Human beings are pack animals. Professor Barbara Fredrickson says that spending more time with people makes us feel uplifted and alive.
Enjoy moments of happiness and share that joy. Be open to seeing the inherit good in others. Practice this skill daily and embrace positivity.
The human purpose is to serve others. Teachers and trainers serve humanity. Nurses serve humanity. According to the research of Lisa, all jobs or careers are derived from a need to serve.
This is an important fact to remember. The PM and al MP’s are here to serve the community. Doctors are established to serve the community. Cleaners are here to serve the community. Gardeners are here to serve the community. Researchers, scientist, fashion designers, musicians, actors and garbologists are all here to serve the community.
Teachers and trainers are no better or worse than their students. Doctors and nurses are not better or worse than their patients.
How do you best serve others?
Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life. Robert Holden.
