Marketing Eye

It seems so often that we focus on external perceptions of what we should or shouldn’t be doing. 

For me, 2016 is about, sharing what I know, giving all I got, and helping others achieve their goals. 

I’ve always felt that I’ve lived with abundance, even as a kid I had the sort of personality that led me to help, share, and try to look at the “bright side of life”. But this year I decided to step it up a notch, and actively consolidated my abundance philosophy across all aspects of my life and business in a tangible way.

Here’s how I’m doing it, and you can do it too:

The Importance of a Work Family

According to Business Insider, the average full-time employee in America works about 1,700 hours per year.

If you don’t like the people that you work with, 1,700 hours is a lot of time to be stuck around them. That is why the work family is an important, but majorly overlooked, aspect of employment.

Like a real family, you don’t get to choose your work family, but making the best of who you have around will make your days a breeze.

Here Is Why You Can't Buy Happiness

Marketing Eye is a global digital marketing firm designed to work collaboratively. We share knowledge, creativity, ideas, and experiences between all international offices. Due to the fact that we have a flat organizational structure our employees are self-starters. If employees don’t have motivation or ambition they just simply don’t last long here - but this is always made clear in a job interview.

Live your life on your own terms

If I had a magic ball, I would look deeply into it and thin hard about what it was that I wanted to get out of life. 

This morning I had breakfast at The Mercer Kitchen in Soho with my friend Kristina Karlsson, you know that phenomenal businesswoman who blows every other Australian businesswoman out of the water.

Why your health is important to your success

Give me all the money in the world and I would return it, stupidly some may say, for a life filled with happiness and health.

I make that gesture in the belief that if you hold the gifts of health and happiness close to your heart, the money will follow.

What makes me #happy

What makes me #happy? The sun shining. My dog giving me a cuddle. Spending time with my family. Children. Winning. Getting sales. Building my company. Walking in the park. Reading a book. Being in love. 

The United Nations was onto something when they declared March 20, as the first International Day of Happiness. Aimed at encouraging countries to "better capture the importance of the pursuit of happiness and well-being in development with a view to guiding their public policies", #happyday has certainly struck a chord.

Our in-house social media expert tweeted feverishly in both Australia and US on consecutive days about #happyday with great results. People from around the globe retweeted, shared and commented. People simply want to be happy.

I asked a few people in our office what makes them happy.

Happy people are more successful, just ask Shawn Achor, the author of The Happiness Advantage.

"People who cultivate a positive mind-set perform better in the face of a challenge and in every area of your business, you will show improvement if your brain is positive" said Achor at a recent speech to 800 global entrepreneurs.

In fact, sales people who were happy outsell their less positive colleagues by more than 37 per cent and positive people in organisations are not only happier, they perform better and live longer, healthier lives.

Are you the Xmas Scrooge or do you bring joy to everyone around you?
Does going to work mean that you change hats and become a negative, overly opinionated, in-your-face style manager who nags your employees into being so afraid to communicate?
Do you conjure up ways to make others miserable without even knowing it?
Are you too pedantic about detail that you lose sight of the big picture?
