“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”
Today, think about how you can bring a little bit of child-like wonder, playfulness, and naiveté to your life. All of us face the significant challenges of adult life: driving our professional careers, dealing with financial pressures, handling family issues, keeping up our health in our ever-aging bodies, etc. It isn’t what we face, it is the attitude we bring to our normal daily trials. The secret ingredient to seeing life as relatively joyful on balance is a sense of enthusiasm. That enthusiasm can come if we can pause and find the child within us – seeing the possibilities ahead of us, and our capacity to hope, to dream, and to believe we can do anything!
