One of the most self-empowering ideas for a happy, fulfilling life is that it’s up to your own mind to choose to enjoy what you do. You have a tremendous power to develop this attitude.
If you need to do something that seems uninteresting and boring at first, ask yourself, “How can I find a way to enjoy what I need to do?”
Brainstorm. Enjoy the challenge of thinking of a number of ways to make the task more meaningful and fulfilling.
Ask yourself, “What are some of the ways that I can think about this task (or project, goal, or job) that will enable me to enjoy what I am doing?”
