Today I wanted to tell you about having fun!
Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about this idea that it’s so true. And it’s the more fun you have, the better things workout for you.
We are used to think that hard work gives results. That things need to be hard to work.
My grandmother used to say: Everything worthwhile takes work. And I agree with that, but work can be pleasure or it can be pain.
And it’s our perception that makes it so.
Even if you’re working doing something that you don’t love, you can look at it two ways: you’re doing something you don’t want to do, you hate it, it’s a pain in the ass. Or you can look at it as I get to do this work, I can do it well. Can I have fun doing it even?
Yes, you can.
I’m seeing things more and more as I get to do them. Maybe in the beginning I think that I don’t want to do it. Usually it’s just my ego. The voice in your head telling you things that don’t really matter. How you’re too tired for this or can’t be bothered with that.
Is it the true you saying that?
I don’t think so! Because everything you get to do, it’s a thing you GET to do :)
But yes, we can choose the things that bring us even more happiness and well being. That make our heart happy.
Like for me, writing. I love to write and I can sit here and write if I want to. And it’s fun for me. So I can choose to do that more, and decide that it’s a part of my day, every day.
So you can reprogram your days, but instead of having a routine to get you somewhere that includes things you don’t want to do but feel are required to do, you can instead just ask what you really want to do, and what you love to do, and do that!
Because the more fun you have, the happier you are. And the happier you are, the more good things come to you. The more happier you are, the better things seem around you.
I’ve been a bit afraid of this, to tell you the truth.
“What? The happier I am the better things workout? I don’t think so. Because if I just worry about being happy, won’t I just want to be in an island, on the beach, drinking Margaritas all day long?”
But not really because let’s face it, even if I’m on vacation and I’m on the beach having drinks, I’ll get bored of it soon.
We always want to expand, and help and do new creative things. If we are happy of course ;)
So yes, I’m leaning more towards happiness and doing what makes me happy and trusting. Knowing that it will lead me to good places.
Like one of my coaches asked me the other day: What do you think will happen if you love yourself and do what you love?
Only good things, of course :)
So what can you do to add more happy things to your life?
To make your work more fun?
Easy, just ask yourself the right questions, and you get the right answers!
Coach yourself since a big part of coaching is asking the right questions. You know the answers so ask yourself:
How can I make my work more fun? How can I do more happy things?
Here’s my list:
- write more
- create more
- worry less
- do whatever I feel called to do, at the moment
- create programs that I really want to create
- sell the things I love the most
- workout more
- meditate more
- stop working at a set time, around 4 pm or sooner
- do my personal stuff every day
- have time to apply makeup and choose a nice outfit
- have time to just do nothing
- time away from the computers and screens
- more time just relaxing, having a tea, thinking
What’s your list?
Let me know in the comments below!
