Grow Ur Biz with the Luck of the Irish

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,Northern Ireland,the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand and many more. Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other festivals. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. There are also formal gatherings such as banquets and dances, although these were more common in the past. St Patrick’s Day parades began in North America in the 18th century but did not spread to Ireland until the 20th century. Recently, famous landmarks have been lit up in green on St Patrick’s Day.

The Luck of the Irish isn’t luck at all, but more of an ATTITUDE, a positive look at a bad situation. The Irish didn’t survive a potato famine by not having a positive outlook and a great sense of humor! ATTITUDE!

ATTITUDE is everything. ATTITUDE is a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior. As a business leader you might have a great ATTITUDE or possibly a lousy ATTITUDE. Both will reflect your business, it’s day to day operations, and especially your staff. More than likely, when you do business with someone with a lousy ATTITUDE most of us are apt to never go back again. However, being around people with a great ATTITUDE or doing business with them will bring you to a new level in your business.


May the “Luck of the Irish be with you”.
“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” – Oscar Wilde
May you live to be 100 years, with one extra year to repent.
There are two kinds of people in the world the Irish and those who want to be Irish!
If you’re enough lucky to be Irish… You’re lucky enough!

Perhaps you might consider the “Luck of the Irish” or just change your ATTITUDE!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
