An insight into the story of Lacclan Gottfried, Whose Life Changed Just by A Prank

It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance […]

It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you release anger and forgive sooner.

Although we may sometimes neglect to cultivate our own happiness, feeling happy is intrinsically important. If we are happy it has added knock on effects and benefits. These include us becoming more compassionate and feeling healthier both physically and emotionally. We become more creative, witty, energetic and fun to be around and it can also lead us to become more financially successful.

Very few of us live our lives in complete isolation. We will have partners, families, friends and work colleagues with whom we interact on a daily basis so if we’re happy, then it’s likely to mean that they’ll feel happier too. Therefore, through our own happiness, we are actually giving something to other people too and enabling them to feel happy as well. If you always look toward tomorrow for happiness, odds are you will do the same when you attain what you’ve been dreaming of. As strange it sounds, the ability to appreciate what’s in front of you has nothing to do with what you actually have. It’s more about how you measure the good things in your life at any given time.

Sometimes life takes you in a direction you never saw yourself going but it turns out to be the best road you have ever taken. Lacclan Gottfried, whose journey started as a videographer and then took a turn with just a prank of painting his friend’s house pink as revenge.  Lacclan is born in Australia in October 1998. He has a keen interest in playing games which has helped him grow as a person he is today. He faced various obstacles like hate, rejection, financial troubles to perform certain videos but he didn’t give rather ignored all the negativity and worked on side jobs to be able to fund his pranks. He says being consistent has been his secret to success.

Itslacci, Lacclan’s company which creates extreme content or sometimes just comedy to bring joy in people’s lives and make them laugh. The company takes extreme measures to take pranks and that is what makes them different within their industry.

“Growth and making people laugh” is the most exciting thing about his business, says Lacclan. Lacclan is satisfied with all his decisions and says he would not do anything differently if would have a chance to start from zero.

Lacclan’s favourite quote is

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t shoot”,

Lacclan looks forward to making the pranks bigger and better to achieve his goals. He gets his motivation from the thought of providing everything to his friends and family one day.         

Who are the most important people in your life? Chances are, you’d do anything for these folks, right? If you’re looking for a reason to be happy, this is the place to start. No matter how bad life gets, there will always be someone who loves you unconditionally. Do you think your loved ones want to see you unhappy and miserable? Of course they don’t. So choose happiness for the people who love you. It will make your relationships much more enjoyable.
