Accountant in Laurel:
"Be Happy, be open, and grow with the organization..."
Lean on God to guide you. I am successfully happy because he wanted me to do my best at whatever was before me and I choose to follow him. If your boss isn't happy, engage them, find out what to do, and then do it. Pray always, He will guide you through it all. I love that I can give my job 100% of me and then walk away at the end of the day. It is possible, if you find the job where those closest to you are happy people too. That's my secret, I associate with happy people, and try to lift those up around me always. Positive people rub off on those around them. And I seek joy in my life, actively seek joy in my Father in Heaven, and I am blessed because of this....and my other secret...money NEVER, EVER drove my passion to succeed. EVER. I love people. I love to smile. I love a happy heart. If I didn't feel the presence of Joy, I left the job. Simple as that. And my last secret. Don't go into debt for long. Plan to get out ASAP, and live with in your means.
