Laugh at Yourself

imageLast week somehow I lost my footing and fell flat on my back right in the middle of a conversation… I’m ok :), but it was pretty funny. I picked myself up again, had a few laughs and kept moving. My colleagues cracked jokes all week. Laughing at yourself gives others the freedom to be themselves. It relieves tension and stress.

Colleagues will also see a different side of you when you create a comfortable and uninhibiting atmosphere. They will be more open to sharing things with you. Sometimes you’ll fall, but the important thing is to just get back up…and keep on moving. Your response to mishaps can be a blessing to others. We’re all human.

I’m not sure where this quote came from but it encouraged me so I thought I’d share it!
