Have Fun!

The most wasted day of all is that
in which we have not laughed.

                    -- Sebastien-Roch Nicolas Chamfort

Laugh. Smile. Have fun. Whatever you do, enjoy it. Life is difficult, but it is not a chore. Make it an adventure. Make it fun. There is joy to be found everywhere you look. There is pleasure in every moment.

Work can be just as fun as play. And it doesn’t really matter what you do. Attitude is the key. Decide to enjoy yourself, and you will. Don’t let others dictate to you what is fun and what is dreary. Find enjoyment where you are.

Imagine for a moment how much more effective you could be, in whatever you choose to do, if you truly enjoyed it. Pleasure exists for a reason -- to draw you toward things. Find joy in the activities that bring success, and you’ll be continually drawn toward a life of accomplishment.

Don’t wait for success to bring pleasure to your life -- let the pleasure bring success. Have fun working hard, and watch all the good things happen.

— Ralph Marston
