    Dear Taichung Happiers,

    Baby, it’s cold outside?

    We indulged a growing swell of emotion to wrap us up on this New Year’s Day. It was surprisingly balmy and shiny—only a little breeze told me that I wasn’t under the summer sun. Are you searching or waiting for the next season? Well, what do seasons truly mean to you? Which season makes you feel a sense of comfort and contentment washing over you? Singer and poet Ross Farrar referred seasons to the sense of wholeness and the idea of fullness. “Without seasons the human body seems to disagree with how it perceives the world, feels as if what's missing is the feeling & wants to attach to anything that will return to itself.” See? The candles we lighted, at any place, in any season, always cast illumination on our questing eyes. What are the things we have to say thanks for in every season? How to enjoy more season fun? As always, Happiers’ knowledge-and-experience sharing is greatly appreciated and will all add up to spice up our journey. Welcome to join our host Sue in contributing delightful and insightful conversations.

    A ray of sunshine. Be a ray of sunshine, at any place, in any season. Literally, sunshine helps flirtation.
    8) 8) 8) https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/01/130128081950.htm More importantly, positivity is a ray of sunshine bringing ourselves a confident condition and also making others happy. Positivity is the only solution to our long-lasting health, performance, and relationships. Check out how Professor Dianne Vella-Brodrick indicates the ways positivity improves our health physically, mentally, and emotionally. https://psychlopaedia.org/health/how-being-positive-improves-your-health/ So, why do we feel what we feel? Why do we think what we think? What do you value about yourself to translate your big dreams into the positive focus? Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) painted an Impressionist picture. “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” Yes. That’s why Kid President always dances and invites us to dance under the sunshine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5yCOSHeYn4 Be a ray of sunshine, at any place, in any season. Remember that a sense of humor is our inner light that can transform negativity into positivity and make any moment fulfilled. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzxFqJuatXU

    Turn over a new leaf. “Dear Winter, I am breaking up with you. I think it’s time I start seeing other seasons………………Summer is hotter than you!” All right. Seriously, you never know how I love it when I read this again and again: “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.’” (from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll) One season ends and another season starts. A moment like that comes as a welcome reminder of the significant moments shaping who we are today. No season just changes and passes for nothing. When the season changes, the Nature is encouraging us to understand and embrace the complex dynamics; the Nature is encouraging us to think in a new way and help each other’s new thinking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo_lZiytsMw New seasons mean new possibilities. Only when we feel the expectation and excitement of a new season, only when we respect the natural constitution, can we feel the energy within every season. Change and constant growth is the way of life. The change of seasons inspires us to think differently what performance is about-- high-level performance in any field is a moveable feast--the change of seasons drives us to raise the bar on the results that we want to achieve. It’s great to look at the stars; yet, great could be no longer enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRRTnVQLrFE Seasons change, and it keeps us sharp, really aware of our true state. Being open to every season is being open to every process of life. Go above and beyond, because serving more is the way how we show our respect to the Nature. Even an unofficial performance would go a long way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFIClHWSNAY

    From "seasons" (by Hillsong Worship)

    Like the frost on a rose
    Winter comes for us all
    Oh how nature acquaints us
    With the nature of patience
    Like a seed in the snow
    I’ve been buried to grow
    For Your promise is loyal
    From seed to sequoia

    Every cloud has a silver lining; anything is possible. Want to bath in fresh air and sunshine? Seasons Board Game, anyone?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVEY-dxcSU0 Author Lionel Suggs simply put “Rhythms are what create the seasons, and rhythms are special for creating the season called love. This is a season that is always active, so even if you aren't experiencing it, someone else is, always.” Yes. Love challenges expectations and continues the cultivation—every season is a season of love. Love your dreams and believe in yourself, and anything is possible. That’s how we create and resume the reality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmpu58yv8-g Even in the winter season, we see that the way everyone smiles carries an air of expectation—it’s not the expectation itself—it’s how the expectation influences the rest of our lives. Nevertheless, when winter comes out of the blue during the spring season, we should make fierce attempts to seek for the invisible root, to spread our wings, and to fly high. What we can learn from the seasons is “Anything is Possible“. Give more love and believe in yourself, and anything is possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuiiXneb0V4 Above all, empower the possibilities every season has gifted us. Assess the situation, acquire the information, and deliver a plan of accountable actions. Besides, bear it in mind that the purpose of slowing down is to speed up again. Let’s learn more from The Tiny Seeds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSFNr777V0A

    Brighten up the day. Happiers’ smiles are rememberable and always help restore happiness. Every season runs to us, and all our fury and frustration melt away in its embrace; every season is a remarkable reminder that we have to get in touch with ourselves; every season encourages us to be surrounded by people with beautiful hearts and minds. Writer and philosopher Dejan Stojanovic confidently communicated his perspective that“Although all days are equally long regardless of the season, some days are long not only seasonally but by rewards they offer.” May your every single day more than rewarding. Keep warm and dream on! Join us. Thanks!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFatVn1hP3o

    Re: 20171223, Article, Taichung

    Dear Taichung Happiers,

    Is shopping your second religion?

    The astonishing atmosphere of this season can easily transport us back to the bright moment in a gift shop. Truly, it’s so hard to go on a shopping diet during this season, and it’s almost a miracle to find anyone who doesn’t indulge such a passion. Everything in every display window is casting a shining, sparkly smile, which makes every heart racing. “Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.” Yes? No? What three words will you take to summarize your shopping journey? What can your company (organization) do to get, keep, and grow customers? What kind of shopping experience can have an enormous influence upon the rest of our life? The key to having an in-depth understanding of the meanings of the products or services we purchase is to immerse ourselves within Santa’s spirit and vision. This weekend, Joey will dedicate his hosting to Taichung Happiers. Welcome to join us in enjoying ourselves in the Winter Wonderland for sharing our expectations of shopping environments and the chances and challenges along our consumption journey.

    We are what we shop? What we buy shapes what others think of us, or, what others think of us seduces us into buying something? What kind of buying decisions do people make on this “ticket”?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP_dyQGENCI How to accurately analyze the right data to further understand our consumers? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP3_dKP55QY Award-winning playwright Chris Dee critically commented:”In Paris, choosing a dress is a monumental decision. In Milan, it’s a kick.” Yes. Culture! Consumer behaviors are dramatically affected by cultural and social factors. Shopping customs differ among countries; shopping customs differ between individualistic culture and collectivist culture; shopping customs differ among various education backgrounds. I mean, culture and education, in terms of family, school, and society. What do we exactly want/need to communicate with what we buy? Why? Interesting enough, Professor Kit Yarrow’s research results have revealed that our body betrays the top secrets of the relationship between our emotions and consumption. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-why-behind-the-buy/201212/is-your-brain-holiday-shopping Also, gender is a dominant determinant. “Men buy, women shop.” Oh, hi there, girls and boys. 8) Above all, either we shop alone or with friends, great goods and services always inspire our interactions with other (potential) consumers. https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/insights/personal-touch-quantified

    How are we hypnotized by the swirling waters around the Campaign Ocean? Marketing is more than magic—potent marketing messages hypnotize our brains to wake up our emotions—whatever development of the multi-channels has taken place. After that, what makes us sink back into some thoughts? John Deighton, a professor at Harvard Business School, is dispelling the myth of marketing effectiveness. http://www.msi.org/articles/5-things-i-know-about-marketing-john-deighton-harvard-business-school/ Basically, we are creatures of emotion; besides, not a single day goes by that we don’t face other creatures of emotion. The emotion is a continuous process, which filters all the information to achieve our deepest desire for the answers to importance, occurrence, and influence. Therefore, if Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) had not been an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist, she could have been the most insightful Chief Marketing Officer with this concept: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Well, what says it better than this Hohoho……. marketing event? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIEIvi2MuEk All right, please stop suggesting that only in another universe might you need marketing theory and practice. Listen--taking Coke Cola for example, this speaker even further applies marketing theory to re-defining success. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN-41JjIPEg

    We come, we buy, we conquer. What the business world can give us more than we expected is fulfilling their Corporate Social Responsibility. Take and encourage the responsibility to one another, the responsibility to this planet, and the responsibility to next generations and the future. Social responsibility is a trigger for organizations to focus more on society and environment and to win more respect from customers. https://www.forbes.com/sites/steveolenski/2017/12/01/a-big-brand-unveils-a-big-vision-to-bring-the-world-together/#5e71ee517c0b So, please bear Marketing professor Philip Kotler’s words in mind. “Over the past 60 years, marketing has moved from being product-centric (Marketing 1.0) to being consumer-centric (Marketing 2.0). Today we see marketing as transforming once again in response to the new dynamics in the environment. We see companies expanding their focus from products to consumers to humankind issues. Marketing 3.0 is the stage when companies shift from consumer-centricity to human-centricity and where profitability is balanced with corporate responsibility.” Hey, no worries about any conflict between business profits and social responsibility. With these two elements of the business plan, this Penguin Hotline demonstrates that every company can go a long way. https://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/18/style/a-gift-so-right-shell-know-you-got-help.html Companies can count on the complete consumer loyalty while making a difference by meeting social responsibility, which is the value their consumers believe in. Most importantly, empathy, the most powerful organizational culture, is the fundamental requirement to bridge the gaps and to build trust and triggers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEB2bk29AMQ

    “The Joy of Giving” (by John Greenleaf Whittier)

    Somehow, not only for Christmas
    But all the long year through,
    The joy that you give to others
    Is the joy that comes back to you.
    And the more you spend in blessing
    The poor and lonely and sad,
    The more of your heart’s possessing
    Returns to you glad.

    This season itself is a big gift for everyone; this season itself is more valuable than anything we can buy. We're all in this together. What did you feel when you shopped for last weekend’s X’mas party? Every X’mas gathering is a memory that nobody can take away from us. Author Bill Bryson once addressed “We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls.” Yet, yet, yet, we can still look on the bright side. What if civilization and shopping malls can go in the same direction? Proud of being part of this Non-Profit Organization where everyone can simultaneously be a marketer and a “consumer”. The stars will be brighter when our “Customer” Engagement is beautifully lined up. Never let this admirable and cheerful mood evaporate. Wish everyone a super hyper cool X’mas. Join us. Thanks!!!
