DonĎt Take Yourself Too Seriously

It's true that some people donít take themselves or their lives seriously enough. But many people take themselves way too seriously. Itís best to develop the ability to laugh at yourself. In doing so, you'll enjoy better health and be a lot easier to be around.

Early in his ministry, the Reverend Billy Graham once stopped in a small town where he was scheduled to preach. Wanting to mail a letter, he asked a young boy where the post office was. After the boy provided directions, Dr. Graham thanked him and then invited the boy to the Baptist church where he would be telling people how to get to heaven. "I don't think Iíll be there," the boy said. "You donít even know how to get to the post office."

Action Point
Things are rarely as serious as they seem at the time. Almost all of the things you think are a big deal now are things you'll chuckle about later. So if you're going to laugh about it later, you might as well laugh about it now. And remember, donít sweat the small stuff--and it's almost all small stuff.

Excerpted from the new 101 Best Ways to Get Ahead from 101 of the Most Successful People in the World.
