The past few mornings been repeating this mantra – from my first days as a career guy at Disney (mid-’80’s):

I feel happy. I feel heathy. I feel alive.

(say it 5-10 times while walking to the bathroom right after crawling out of bed)

Insight: Smiling is easy, if you know what triggers it.

Mantra’s can be very helpful. We all need to be reminded to stay focused (in the midst of endless temptation), and count our blessings (when it often seems like there are none).


Mantras are very effective. Say it with me:

“I feel happy, I feel healthy, I feel alive!”

It’s quite common for business travelers (and anyone, doing anything, for that matter) to feel the drain that comes with the territory.

Waking up this morning, the final day of a four-day trip, found myself repeating this mantra over and over. It worked.
