How does someone have fun with life and business? It’s simple: choose it. And choose again.
The truth is, you have choice with everything; you’ve always had choice. Most people are looking for the answer to be more complicated and difficult than that. But, ease and fun are just a choice. So is suffering and misery. Which ones do you prefer?
If you no longer bought into the idea that life had to be hard, what would you have to change and what would you have to choose to have fun in every aspect of your life?
First and foremost, choose for you.
How many times do you choose based on somebody else’s point of view? This is a place where you really have to get honest with yourself. Who are you choosing your life for? Who are you creating your business for? Who are you creating your body for? What are you avoiding with the choices you’re making?
Stop making anyone’s point of view greater than you and what you can choose for your life. This includes the point of view of your family, your culture, your country, any group you belong to–anyone. Do you have a life in order to be what someone else thinks is right for you?
What would you choose for you, not based on pleasing someone else, but basing it on the purpose of life is to have fun?
Acknowledge where you’re in conclusion and change it.
How many of you are using work and to-do lists to define your life? Where did you buy that your life requires definition? To-do lists are not life. They can be a contribution, but when you’re using them to give definition to your day, your life, and your business, you’re functioning from the limitations this reality tells you you’re supposed to have.
Wherever you’re basing choices on definition and conclusion, you’re eliminating the infinite space of fun you could be choosing.
Are you trying to make business lots of hard work? This reality tells it has to be that way, but no it doesn’t! Get out of conclusions, ask questions, and use your awareness. What have you decided is not fun about your business that could be if you would allow it? What could you add to your business and your life that would create more enjoyment for you? You have the choice to change anything.
“What’s wrong will never give you what’s right.”
That’s a quote from my good friend Gary Douglas. How many people think they have to tackle all their problems and challenges and get everything right before they can have ease or joy or fun? You’ll never get things right; right doesn’t exist. And focusing on what you’ve decided or bought as wrong will certainly never give you anything greater.
Stop buying into what this reality projects at you! You can create whatever you desire. Whether you’re just getting started in a new business, you’re a single mom, you’re living in a poor country, whatever the story, what if there’s nothing to fix? There truly is nothing wrong. What else can you choose that would work for you and would allow you to create a life and business that’s thriving and fun?
If you have a fixed point of view that eliminates fun, you will never receive all the possibilities that are available–period. It’s your life, you can choose hard or you can choose fun. You always have choice.
Keep asking questions! What would be fun for you today? What else is possible for you that you’ve never acknowledged or allowed?
