Some months ago while I was going to the post office to pick up a parcel sent by a friend, I saw 2 kids (age 5 and 7, a boy and a girl). The boy is the oldest. They were both playing together when the boy showed the girl how to hop from one spot to another. After hopping, he asked the girl to do the same.
The girl hopped, but she didn’t get it right. He asked her to try again and again. The girl kept doing it and trying harder, but she never got tired. I was just wondering what kept this girl to continue hopping even when she’s not getting it right.
What’s the secret behind her energy?
Yes, fun. She was having fun while trying harder to hop from point A to point B. Sometimes we don’t have to try harder but have fun. Trying harder wears us out when we don’t have fun with it.
So, whatever you’re doing, whatever you’re trying harder to accomplish just make it fun and you’ll still have the energy to continue because if you don’t make it fun, it’ll wear you out and make you throw in the towel.
Remember, stop trying so hard and make it fun instead.
