Whether it’s a funeral, school or a job. The importance of attendance is absolutely essential. “80 percent of success is showing up” once said Woody Allen. That is no small quote when it comes to success or just being happy. You have got to show up or nothing good can happen. As a matter of fact nothing can happen at all.
We have to show up and if we show up with a positive attitude things can happen that will surprise you and make your life far easier and a heck of a lot more fun. This is where it all starts. It starts when you show up. Then with the positive mental attitude the outcome just gets better with each time you show up and present yourself as a person that brings positive energy to the party.
No one likes a Debbie Downer. I don’t even know if her mother likes her?
Debbie is the person that sees a situation and takes the worst possible slant on the occasion.
In fairness Debbie could be Dennis and it really doesn’t matter. We all know the people that we have over for dinner and then they wont eat anything because it is not farm raised, organic and free range.
Dude, just eat the salad and have a drink.
Attendance may be 80% but that other 20% is all about being positive.
