What is that keeps you going? What inspires you? Are you excited about the new day when you wake up in the morning? Does Monday morning put a smile on your face because you have one more week to do what you love. Or do you wake up grumpy, and just wait for Friday to come around because you hate your work. Do you thrive, or just survive? Someone I talked to the other day said they were too old to thrive. But it doesn’t have to be like that. He may not be thriving, but age has nothing to do with it. Nobody is too old or too young to thrive, to be excited, to have fun, and to fully enjoy life.
Whatever you are doing, make sure you have fun doing it, that you enjoy it, that you put your heart into it, that you are enthusiastic about it. Don’t let one day go by that is just OK, average, so so, not too bad. It’s not what happens that determines how excited or inspired we are, it’s our attitude, our outlook, our expectation. What are you expecting today? How is your attitude? You see, you have a decision to make, not so much about what is going to happen today, but how you are going to respond to whatever comes your way. Make yours a fabulous day.
Fires can’t be made with dead embers, nor can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men. Enthusiasm in our daily work lightens effort and turns even labour into pleasant tasks. – James Baldwin.
