Monday Mantra

In order to give Not A Model a little more structure, I thought I'd start a "Monday Mantra" post. Every Monday I will post an inspirational quote to get everyone starting the week on a positive note. I know Mondays are not everyone's favourite!

Not A Model's Monday Mantra, as sent to me by a co-worker: 

"Only 25% of job success is predicted by intelligence. 75% is predicted by three characteristics related to happiness: optimism, a positive social support network and a positive response to stress.”

Source: article, "It turns out intelligence, not ignorance is related to bliss"

Happy Monday!


  1. Love this! I need to work on the positive response to stress part though.

  2. Great idea! Can I get a Wednesday mantra to help me feel confident about my exam? Thank you in advance :)

  3. Good luck Chris!

    Monique - Yes, I agree, positive responses to anything helps all situations.
