Life is good
Life is difficult, life is unfair, life is challenging and sometimes painful. And life is so very good.
There are frustrations, tragedies, disappointments, setbacks, heartbreaks, and absurdities. The simple joy of being outweighs them all.
Life is good, because within its realm, anything is possible. Life is good, because no matter how far you fall, there is always a way to climb back up again.
You can complain, fret and worry about all the problems in your life, but you’ll be wasting your time. Or, you can choose to focus on why and how life is so good, and on what you can do to take that goodness and make it even better.
Not only is life good, it’s uniquely good for you in your very own way. The possibilities for expressing your purpose are limited only by your imagination.
Remind yourself often of the great and wonderful value that you already, always have. Life is good, and in this moment that’s bursting with possibilities, life is yours.

Working for fun
What if hard work was actually fun? Just imagine how much more of it you would choose to do, and how much additional value you would create.
What if tedious work was actually fulfilling? Just think of how many more great things you could accomplish.
Imagine that some person or some group wanted to hold you back, to keep you from being your very best. What would be a good way of doing that?
One extremely effective way to hold millions of people back would be to spread the assumption that difficult, challenging work is to be avoided. That being the case, is it really an assumption you want to willingly hold on to?
What’s fun, and satisfying, and fulfilling for you, is whatever you decide is fun, satisfying and fulfilling. If you so choose, that can include intense, difficult, challenging and even tedious work that creates great value.
Are you being held back by your assumptions about what is enjoyable and fulfilling, and what is not? You’re free to change those assumptions any time you choose.
