Nobody can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.

The power of enjoyment

Enjoyment adds power and effectiveness to whatever you’re doing. When you’re enjoying life, you’re functioning at your highest level.

But what if you must do something that you don’t enjoy? Choose to enjoy yourself anyway.

Enjoyment depends more on your attitude than on your surroundings. To enjoy yourself, you don’t need anything other than the will to do so.

After all, the outer details of life are not nearly the whole picture. Your inner thoughts are what ultimately control whether or not you’re enjoying yourself.

So choose to bring the power of enjoyment to all areas of your life. You’ll be more creative, more pleasant to be around, more positive and more resourceful when you’re enjoying life.

Wherever you may find yourself, whatever you may be doing, find some aspect of it to value and appreciate and enjoy. And enjoy what a powerful positive difference it can make.
