When was the last time you played hooky? When was the last time you didn’t want to be at work, and decided to take the day off?
If you say “I Can’t Remember?” Then perhaps it’s time to have some fun. Life is for living every moment to its fullest — are you living life to its fullest? You say you don’t know! Then you need some fun in your life!
Just the other day I was thinking, “I just don’t want to be around this office” and all of a sudden the phone rang and a friend asked if I wanted to go wine tasting and go to a theme park. Ask and you shall receive, and so we went off enjoying a day of fun and excitement.
The old saying is, “Life is short and then you die,” and I say whoever wrote this is right. Life is too short to not enjoy every moment. What is life all about for you? What are you searching for in life? What one word sums up what you want out of life? Would that word be Joy, Happiness, Peace, Bliss, Excitement?
Now that you have your word — what brings “Joy, Peace, Happiness or anything else” (Your Word) into your life? For instance, my word is Joy, and to bring Joy into my life I need to empower people to make changes in their lives by giving them love — and I would do that for free.
Having fun also makes me feel great. People see the stress in my face when I’m too serious and overwhelmed. I can get stuck thinking that I need to be in my office all the time and that’s not true! The more people I come in contact who seeing the smile on my face, the more people find out who I am, and what I do, and enjoy being around me.
Get out, have fun, and grow your business at the same time. Life is not about trying to make things happen, it’s about letting go and letting life happen. Of courses you have to work, nothing will happen without elbow grease, but if you think people are going to come to you because you sit at your desk — think again! Take a break and put a smile on your face and people will be drawn to you. Go play hooky!
