Let Them Laugh
I did a seminar at First Security Bank in Bozeman, Montana. After two hours, a woman comes up to me – she’s about 75 years old and so cute – and she said, “You know, all the things you talk about, like being positive and making a difference in people’s lives?” She said, “I do it. I do it!” Then she put her head down and said, “But they laugh at me. They laugh at me!”
I said, “Well, I understand they laugh at you. We live in that kind of society – a critical and a wise-guy society.” I said, “You’re not gonna stop, are you? Because they laugh at me too for being positive! You’re not gonna stop, right?”
She looked back up at me and said, “Nope.”
I gave her a big hug! I said, “Good! I’ll keep being positive, you keep being positive, and we’ll see what we can do.” It was a wonderful exchange.
If you're positive, be careful. They’ll make fun of you. So what?! Let them!
Continue to stay positive. You’re going to affect people in a positive way.
Let’s do it!
