I learn so much watching my twins explore life. I got to thinking today as I watched Maddie pouring water down her arm over and over again today while playing in the pool, and how she marveled each time as it poured down under her arm like it was the very first time. I started to question where that feeling of discovery and wonder goes as we get older.
How do we get back to that marveling phase?
How do we get back that feeling of experiencing something for the first time?
Is it even possible?
Children are so happy-go-lucky. They don’t have an agenda. Children are as honest as it gets. They just do as they feel inclined when the feeling hits them; run, jump, laugh, dance, cry, play, take, give, and kiss. Their inhibitions are their greatest asset and they don’t even know it. Children see the world in all of its glory and splendor.
As adults we are so overwhelmed with “adult responsibilities” that we mostly forget to wonder. Life just happens around us and we get caught up in our daily routine, our jobs, and our families. We don’t often let go and just start dancing when we feel like it, run around laughing, throw a fit, or just cry.
Launching a business and running one are more like a child’s life than you think.
This week is about finding and rekindling the joy in your business. Let’s get back to the wonder in our lives and try to look with fresh eyes at the tasks at hand.
These too are cause for celebration. Think of disappointments as an opportunity to learn and improve your skills. I have learned all my most savvy secrets from my mistakes along the way.
Have fun celebrating,
When in doubt, take the next step,
