Laugh and Get Rich

“I love peo­ple who make me laugh. I hon­estly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a mul­ti­tude of ills. It’s prob­a­bly the most impor­tant thing in a per­son.” ~ Audrey Hep­burn

Laugh and Get Rich!

Feb­ru­ary 8th:  Do you know what is sig­nif­i­cant about this day?

It is offi­cially also known as “Laugh and Get Rich Day”!

If you are read­ing this on Feb­ru­ary 8thLAUGH!!!  Right now…let that laugh in you out!!

And, shoot — even if it’s not Feb­ru­ary 8thLAUGH!!! 

Ahhhh…doesn’t that feel AMAZING!!

Laugh and get rich!  Okay, I’m not going to guar­an­tee that by laugh­ing you’ll become richer mon­e­tar­ily.   I DO have a guar­an­tee, though:  Laugh and you WILL become richer.

Richer in your health

Richer in your relationships.

Richer in our well-being

…richer in your soul

So, let’s all…

CELEBRATE!! (…and have a good time!)

Laugh and get rich!!!!

Guar­an­teed!

Per­haps you need some help to get those laughs com­ing (although I’m all for laugh­ing for no rea­son at all, too!).  Let me share a story with you.

Adven­tures in Travel

I recently spent sev­eral days in Cal­i­for­nia (attend­ing a con­fer­ence and vis­it­ing some very amaz­ing peo­ple).  That’s not what I’m talk­ing about today, though.  I’m talk­ing about my trav­els TO California. 

I was fly­ing form Mil­wau­kee, WI to San Diego, CA…with a lay­over in Las Vegas, NV.  The plane I was on was also the plane going on to San Diego (so I would not have to get off the plane in Las Vegas).  When we landed in Las Vegas, every one of the other pas­sen­gers exited the plane (seems as though all trav­el­ers EXCEPT me were on there way to Vegas, baby!).  There was to be about a 45 minute lay­over before this plane would be leav­ing for San Diego.  I chose to stay on the plane.  So, it was just me and the stew­ardesses (and a guy restock­ing the kitchen area) on the plane. 

NOTE The next part may con­tain TOO MUCH INFORMATION (you’ve been warned!)

This stop­ping point also seemed like a good place to visit the air­plane lava­tory (because, well…too much cof­fee and water…).  So, I wan­dered to the back of the plane to use the restroom.

I squeezed into the small room, locked the door, and began to unzip.

At that moment (mid-zip), one of the stew­ardesses got on the inter­com and said, “To the gen­tle­man who just went into the restroom.…HANG ON!!!!!”. (said with conviction!)

…let me just say…

FREAKY!!!!!  (and…it’s a good thing I was in the restroom!!!)

She then con­tin­ued to talk to me, over the inter­com, while I used the restroom (the WHOLE time I was in there!).

Why?  Just for fun!!!  Just because she had never done that before.  Just because…

How cool is that!!!  (well…after you get over the freaky-ness of it all!)   And the thing was, after that restroom “inci­dent”, there was an instant con­nec­tion between myself and both of the stew­ardesses.  That moment cre­ated con­nec­tion (…as weird as that “moment” sounds…).  That moment cre­ated a space for friend­ship, how­ever brief, to begin…

In case you are wondering…and I’m glad to share — the air­line was South­west Air­lines…which, from my expe­ri­ence, their employ­ees have a whole lot of fun at their work!!

So there you have it — your LAUGH for today!

Now…go out and laugh even more!!

Rich­ness (beyond mea­sure and in so many ways) awaits!


To those of you with inquir­ing minds, I know of this very spe­cial day (Feb­ru­ary 8th), from a cal­en­dar I received this year…that has some­thing to cel­e­brate every day of the year!

A cou­ple of good ones com­ing up:

Feb­ru­ary 19th:  Choco­late Mint Day! (yum!!)
March 18th:  Awk­ward Moments Day (wow…who knew I could have just saved these moments all up for just one day each year!)

This is the first thing I read this morning (and yes, it made me laugh). What a great way to start my day. Now I am off to yoga. Should I keep on laughing during the class? It might be hard to keep some poses? :)
Thank you.

You know what…if you did laugh during yoga class…that would be laughter yoga!!! And I’ve done that before – very fun and therapeutic!! (although all that much yoga-like!!)

Happy yoga-ing!!

Lynn February 8, 2011 at 7:14 am

I had a layover in Las Vegas once and also opted to stay on the plane – they stewardesses said that most everyone else was getting back on, that they have slot machines right out of the gate. :) Still.

Funny story, Lance!

Evelyn,
I KNOW….it was pretty weird!! (but in a very cool way!)

So, after that initial sentence up above, she said something like this: “I thought I’d try to embarrass you while you were in the restroom. If you want to get off the plane, you can certainly do that. I hope you’re having a good flight….” And she just kept on until I came out. And there she was at the other end of the plane, smiling at me!! Then I had a nice conversation with both of the stewardesses, and before I knew it…they were starting to board the other passengers.

Happy laughing!!!

Great little anecdote, Lance. Those little moments are really what life is all about. We all need to be reminded that life just isn’t that serious! If we are not laughing and flirting with life we are missing the point.

The picture is at least a couple of years old (and probably more!).

Yes, Southwest is just generally “fun”!!! In fact, the same stewardess also said something fun to everyone as we were landing in Las Vegas…and then reminded us that what’s said in Vegas stays in Vegas. Obviously since I don’t remember what was said…it DID stay in Vegas!!

Happy Happy!!

This is GREAT! Laugh and get rich! And you quoted my all-time favorite actress — the woman I have pictures of as my screen saver (currently) and on my refrigerator. Guess what she’s doing on that fridge shot? LAUGHING! Head tossed back, and fully enjoying a moment.

LOVE Southwest Airlines, too. I look to fly with them whenever I can. Life cannot have too much fun, and I’m learning, day-by-day, how to have more.

Thanks for this great, fun, LAUGH-WORTHY post, Lance!

Big hug & lots of laughs!

While this “moment” was the most memorable Southwest moment from the trip, each leg of it (both there and back) had moments of fun provided by the airline staff!!! And that is just a great way to LIVE!!!

Thank you for a wonderful laugh, Lance. I figured out that my favorite thing in life is laughing—-and it always has been. I think I got it from my parents who used to like to laugh with each other a lot. One of my favorite memories is of my dad telling my mom jokes after they went to bed (we had a small house) and hearing them laugh and laugh and laugh. :D

Lance February 8, 2011 at 10:07 pm

I really believe that laughing is so therapeutic (on top of the great way it connects us with others, too). So, very awesome – that your favorite thing is laughing!!! I LOVE that!!

And how awesome – your parents, bringing joy and laughter into your household!!

OMG this is hilarious. Hats off to the stewardess for doing that! I would do something just like that!

You have wrtitten a funny post and have conveyed a marvelous truth at the same time. Lughter FREES the soul and is literally good for you! I cannot thank you enough for bringing this back in focus for me today.

I’m gonna be sure to laugh my self silly today!

Laughter is so, so good for our soul. So, whenever we can bring this more fully into who we are, we just connect more – both inwardly and outwardly.

Hope your day was filled with many silly moments and tons of laughter!

My youngest son and I had a paper airplane “war”…which was mostly laughter and a lot of ducking and dodging out of the way!!

The 18th of March…yep, I’m right there with you!!!

Ha ha…Lance I enjoyed your plane incident story. That’s so cool. I think it’s an example of how we can take these really ordinary moments and add some humor to them to make them a little more extraordinary. Thank you for your post today…it’s really a very important reminder for all of us and me especially. I flew with Southwest last year for the first time and was very impressed. It’s amazing how fun is such a part of their corporate culture. And it’s a reason (along with great prices) that I’ll fly them again.

That’s it!! Ordinary moments can become extraordinary…with just a little tweak (like some bathroom humor!)!

F-U-N is definitely a part of the Southwest culture!! They have just within the last couple of years started flying out of Milwaukee. Before that, we had to fly out of Chicago if we wanted to fly Southwest. So much more convenient now…

Hey Evita,
Freaky…and then fun!!! (seriously, that’s exactly how it went for me…from freaky right on over to fun). And the very cool thing was how I bonded with the stewardesses after returning from said restroom. Really, it was so great to form the connection…

It’s this calendar I received in the mail…and almost just threw it away. And I am loving it!! There’s something every day of the year! And if nothing else, it’s just fun and random stuff I “bug” my family with!!! (they are used to it by now!!)

Hi Lance. I am glad that I stopped by your site today. Thank you for the laugh! Too often, we take ourselves to seriously… especially on an airplane. I think that this is why Southwest Airlines has made it a part of their mission to change that paradigm. They truly have see that laughter on the airplane can reduce the overall sense of anxiety. They do this by making fun of anxiety prone situations. With that said, I congratulate you for being able to perform your duties in the bathroom after that comment! LOL

Lance… you would have been laughing at me if you had been in the men’s bathroom of the Qantas lounge in LAX. I was homeward bound to Australia from the States and had just done the red eye from Atlanta when I inadvertently pushed into the men’s room instead of the ladies. Worse still I didn’t wake up until I got to the cubicle and noticed a strange row of people standing along the back wall all hurriedly zipping up. OMG. I can tell you… I ran out of there red faced in double quick time!

Laughter definitely is the best medicine. In fact… it is the ONLY medicine when things go awry in the funniest ways!

Laughter is the best thing that you can do for yourself. When my youngest daughter was the only one left in the nest, in the evening would just laugh. Sometimes there was nothing to laugh about and other times we would find something to laugh about. I say laugh until your sides hurt, it is so much fun. Lance thanks for the reminder and now I shall go laugh out loud.

Laughing for no reason at all – that sounds very much like laughter yoga!! Something I’ve only done a couple of times…something that was so, so good, though. I’m recalling now how we had a room of people laughing out of control…and nothing was inherently funny! Life is beautiful!!!

Hi Lance — that’s definitely a fun story — I imagine she could tell just from being with you that you were someone willing to have fun, even if it’s a little bit at his own expense! But I am against those airplane restroom cameras being used to crack jokes — Homeland Security regulations clearly require them to be used only for security purposes. Just kidding about the cameras — I don’t think they exist, although you never can be too sure these days!

Hi Lance! I never knew there was a Laugh and Get Rich Day. Is it for real? It sounds like an awesome idea. Any incentive for laughing I’m in. Every time I fly Southwestern I also notice their humor. They have a special way of saying goodbye over the intercom with a lot of humor. It’s a more relaxed airline.

Ha ha ha! Thanks for the laugh today, Lance. I’m smiling! And I had just finished telling my coach that sometimes I get too serious during the day. Love it! And those three angels up top are making me smile even bigger. :)
