In my years in business, I have seen many types of people. There are those who have the most sour dispositions on Earth-- They walk around complaining about everything and everyone and to make matters worse, they usually curse their luck when stuff doesn't go their way in Life and Business... And there's the other type... No matter what happens this person remains cheerful and optimistic and is always ready to make their friends and customers smile with a couple of good jokes or compliment: BUBBA KNOWS WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT... One day, Jimmy Jones was walking down Main Street when he saw his buddy Bubba driving a brand new pickup. Bubba pulled up to him with a wide grin. B ubba, where'd you git that truck?!?" Tammie give it to me" Bubba replied. "She give it to ya? I know'd she wuz kinda sweet on ya, but a new truck?" "Well, Jimmy Jones, let me tell you what happened. We wuz drivin' out on County Road 6, in the middle of nowheres. Tammie pulled off the road, put the truck in 4-wheel drive, and headed into the woods. She parked the truck, got out, threw off all her clothes and said, 'Bubba, take whatever you want.' So I took the truck! " "Bubba, yore a smart man! Them clothes woulda never fit you!" AN EXPLANATION AS GOOD AS ANY..... A man said to his wife, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful at the same time." The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!" A SURE FIRE LOST WIFE LOCATION TECHNIQUE.... I was in Wal-Mart the other day and I walked up to a young and lovely woman and said, "I've lost my wife in here somewhere. Can you talk to me a couple of minutes?" The woman looks puzzled. "Why talk to me?", she asks. "Because every time I talk to a woman with boobs like yours, my wife appears out of nowhere." -- I find that I make more money when I am happy and positive, even when those around me are advertising much more that I am... Folks have told me that they love visiting me at Apsense: http://www.apsense.com/invite/peaceful Because my blogs and subjects always find a way to make them feel better about their lives-- And they are much more likely to buy from me, than from someone else with the same products and services... What do you think about this and please be sure that your responses will be greatly appreciated! :)

I love visiting you on Apsense Peaceful! You always have something funny to say. But apart from that, yeah I do think that having a sense of humour is important for every angle in life, but also to know when to be funny and when not to serious is a key skill I think, but anyway yeah I do think that a sense of humour helps not only make friends but lasting relationships and so, if one has those skills yeah they can make a lot of money lol. But the money is nothing but bread we need so what gives? We only pass this way once, AFAWK so we may as well all lighten up and the things we need will come our way anyway because we are genuine. That is what it is all about for me, be yourself, have some laughs and the rest just follows along anyway because you meant it.

Hello my friend, you've been missed and now it's super to see you again. It's said that we get what we think about so it would make more sense to continually be happy and think positively about what we want. If you continually think of and imagine a life of abundance, it should happen for you.....that's the theory anyway.

Thankyou for the gift of the Secret lessons. I have been meaning to watch the video again for some time now so the timing must be right on. I believe I knew I was thought of and that I would here from you again anon. The weather changes all the time, sometimes it's wonderful, sometimes a trial. C'est la vie mon amis. A very big hug to you.

If you are sour and you fail, you are unhappy and inable to make a good decision. If you are happy and fail you just keep going. So yeh, people with humour can make more money.

Our Emotional States of Being are an indication of our overall health and energy.. Human stamina and the Will to keep trying, are features that benefit greatly from a happier, more humourous outlook at our Lives and the Tasks that we meet! :)

I don't doubt it, Peaceful. You have made me laugh so often, sharing humor lightens the day and puts everyone in a brighter more open mood. I love the bubba story. But they're all good.

If two people both have equal experience and knowledge shouldn't they both be able to sell equally? Why would the person with the sense of humor do better then the serious (calm, not angry) one?

I am mainly convinced that Emotional Intellect and Knowledge also is a very important part of that sales experience! :)

Peaceful my dear, If you are selling anything, of course you have to have a sense of humour - partly because you are going to need it if they turn you down and partly because people who have a sense of humour aremore attractive than those miserable souls. Heck,if it wasnt for my sense of humour ...... HOWEVER - it helps to have a good product or service to sell in the first place - because if your product is excellent, even the most miserable so and so can sell it and if it is useless even the happiest funniest salesman cant do it!!LOL And the BUT - because there ealways is a but - you have to be careful not to go too far with your humour - if it is a bit "off colour" it can offend people. If it too much "off the wall" it can scare people into thinking you are totally nuts and then they go and look for someone more "normal" to buy from.LOL I would probably buy from you because I know you and know you are not as daft as you sound1 LOL - and the same happens with my customers too! Humour is wonderful stuff - so long us us jojkers dont overdo it and frighten the nativesç! LOL Jenny
