German term or phrase:Heiter kommt weiter.
Obviously, this is a saying, but I am not sure what the English equivalent would be.
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar
Explanation: "Heiter kommt weiter" essentially refers to the idea that a good attitude leads to greater success. The phrase I've suggested may or may not be appropriate, depending on your source text, but "you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" is an often-used saying. Hope this helps.
