LOL: Feel Good and Live Longer

"A day without laughter is a day wasted."
~ Charlie Chaplin

Our driving force in writing this book comes from our belief that we are practitioners of advanced “laugh science.” Throughout our combined years of hard knocks, we have always risen above our adversities by using measures such as prayer, healthy practices, humaneness, optimism and humor. Beyond our own experiences, we have gained valuable wisdom from observing others who have reaped the rewards of humor. Having appreciated these benefits, we feel a need to share our enthusiasm with you.

If you are stressed out, down in the dumps and can’t remember the last time you laughed, this book is ideally tailored to your needs. If you are shy, challenged by interpersonal relationships or lack self-esteem, this book can open doors to promote self-assurance and develop social graces. If you are prone to bursts of anger or meet the criteria for being a Type A personality with inordinate aggressiveness and hostility, you most certainly will reap valuable remedies from the pages of this book.

If you are suffering from personal setbacks, grief from the loss of a close relative or friend or symptoms of a physical illness, the message from this book will demonstrate how humor and laughter can significantly lessen your pain or misfortune.

Finally, and possibly most significantly, if you take life and yourself too seriously, if you have difficulty laughing and, especially, if you’re unable to laugh at yourself, this book can change your life.

The Power of Optimism

People! People! And People!
Goals, market and product knowledge, time management, and continuing education are certainly many of the major ingredients for success. If, however, you are unable to effectively prospect, communicate, and develop rapport with customers, clients and people in general, then it is going to be very difficult to be successful in business or in life.
Why Did I Write This Book?
First, to share my good fortune, experience, and belief that most people want to associate and work with someone who has high standards, works and plays hard, respects others, maintains a sense of humor, and has a positive attitude.
Second, to help you realize that no matter how hard you try, you are not going to make every sale. Corporations do not get every contract. Your favorite sports team does not win every game. However, if you learn something from the process, then the chances improve that you will make that next sale, meet a new person, sign a contract, or win that game.
Third, each of us is different. How you approach an individual or sales opportunity will depend on your comfort level. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. Build on your strengths, and learn from your weaknesses.
Fourth, my hope is whether you read this book from cover to cover or open it to any page and start reading, you will feel good about yourself and your ability to do anything you desire. When you read a page or chapter, I hope you will say, "I can do that." Maybe you have already experienced this feeling.
Finally, if I can ever be of help, please do not hesitate to contact me at email Best wishes for success and good health always.
