I teach economics at UNLV three times per weel. Last Monday I cheerfully asked my students how their weekend had been. One young man said that his weekend had not been so good. He asked me why I always seemed to be so cheerful, His question reminded me of something I’d read somewhere before :“Every morning when you
get up, you have a choice about how you want to approach life that day,”I said. “I
choose to be cheerful.”
“Let me gove you an example,”I continued, “In addition to teaching here at UNLV,
I also teach out at the community college in Henderson,17 miles down the freeway from where I live.One day I drove those 17miles to Henderson .I exited the freeway and turned onto College Drive . I only had to drive another quarter mile down the road to the college.But just then my car died.I tried to start it again, but the engine wouldn’t ture over. So I put my flashers on ,.grabbled my books, and marched down the road to the college.”
“As soon as I got there I called AAA and arranged for a tow truck to meet at my car after class . The secretary in the Provost,s office asked me what has happened.‘This is my lucky day,’I replied, smiling.”
“Your car breaks down and today is your lucky day? She was puzzled ‘What do
“‘I live 17 miles from here .’I replied.‘My car could have broked down
anywhere along the freeway. It didn’t . Instead , it broke down in the perfect
place:I’m still able to teach my class, and I’ve been able to arrange for the tow truck
to meet me after class.’”
“The secretary smiled. I smiled back and headed for class.”So ended my story.
I scanned the sixty faces ijn my class . Despite the early hour , no one seemed to
be asleep. Somehow, my story had touched them, Or maybe it wasn’t the story at all.
In fact , it had all started with a student’s observation that I was cheerful.
