This I Thought was True
People Have A Good Idea Of How Attractive They Are
People have a good idea of how attractive they are. This I thought was true. Did you know we may not be as attractive as we think we are? In an experiment, researchers created 11 images from a photo of the participant on the computer. Some were altered to be more attractive, some were altered to be less attractive, and one untouched. They showed all 11 images to the participant and asked the participant to identify the unaltered version. Most people picked prettier versions of themselves instead of recognizing their original face. In another study with 26,000 people, they were asked to rate their own attractiveness from 1 to 10, with 5 being better looking than half of the people. Almost everyone rated themselves at least 6 or 7. That’s statistically impossible.
Kevin is working at a movie theater. His job is to keep the movie the floors clean. He is using a broom right now to sweep up the big stuff that people left behind. Since he is only 17 years old, he isn’t qualified for most jobs. He enjoys working at the theater because he gets to watch all of the new movies. He understands that people may leave behind some small candy wrappers on occasion, but sometimes it really makes him angry when movie goers leave behind a lot of trash.

Do you enjoy your job? If not, you will find yourself stuck doing something you dislike for half of the time you are awake. The greatest blessing is to have a job you cannot wait to get to. When you take pleasure in your work, it motivates you to get up every morning and have a fulfilling day. When you are in the zone, you do not have time to worry about minor irritationsin life because you can not care less.
