Thought for the Day - The Connection Between Fun and Success

A key element to be successful is to have fun doing what ever we are doing. Many people have a problem with that idea. How can we have fun they say, doing things we don't want to do. The thing is that fun is not given to you by someone else - you need to find it yourself. You can find it with an uncompromising attitude in anything and that will change the direction of many things.

For example - start looking for ways to have fun and do only those.

Fun is about freedom. Its about feeling that things are in your control. This is a feeling and nothing else. Unless you are locked up in chains you have all the freedom you need. You only need to exercise it. It means you stop looking for permissions to do things and start doing stuff on your own. Your time. Your pace. Your space.

When you are having fun you find it easier to make and accept mistakes. This is a huge part of the growth process. It allows you to laugh at yourself, to be mischievous, to push boundaries and explore new things. It certainly makes the journey more interesting and more bearable. Find ways to have fun.
