“Success and happiness are inversely proportional to anything that is hard and difficult”The really good news is: If life hasn’t worked out the way you dreamed, it might be because you just aren’t having enough fun. Isn’t that beautiful? Oh, don’t worry, I can hear that annoying voice in your skull whispering to you…this guy is nuts! Well, that may be true but the paradox is not. By the time you are finished this book I am more than confident you will be a convert to the fun easy way to abundance and happiness. So let’s begin.
“Our mind plays tricks on us all of the time so it’s time to give it some of its own medicine"
One of my ‘aha moments’ came when I realized how much effort I will put into sports. After a game of squash, I would come off the court drenched with sweat, physically drained and yet on a high. I thought to myself, wow it’s amazing how hard I just played. I get incredible fitness out of the game and I love it. Now, if you put me in an aerobics class or on a stationary bike, I know I would not keep at it anywhere long enough to get the same benefit. I just don’t have that kind of willpower (nor do I want to). But make it a game and I will expend incredible effort. So being the bright and lazy guy that I am I reasoned that if everything was a game or just plain fun, then logically anything would be easier and thus possible.
While writing this chapter I got to thinking about the great inventions of mankind. It occurred to me that many inventions came about because someone was trying to make work easier or attempting to avoid it. So I guess you could say the lazy guy has great potential to change the world.
Just because I say so doesn’t mean it’s true! You’ve probably been habituated to the mantra… life is hard and difficult and then you die. I expect to have a challenge proving to you that you can live life like play. But a challenge is nothing more than a game and I really like to play. So let the fun begin…
“You can only be profoundly absorbed in doing what you love”
That’s going to be demonstrated to you in this book. I love my philosophy that….life was meant to be fun, easy and abundant. So I’m going to have a blast convincing you with the kind of book you’ve never encountered before. You see I learned awhile back that you can’t bore anyone into wanting to learn. And if I had to write the typical boring philosophy book it would never have gotten done. I wanted to have fun writing it and guess what? I did.
Fun is not a trivial matter it is the most important thing in the universe. Later you’ll learn that energy flows to fun and fun is the path of least resistance. Once you understand the power of fun you will realize it’s a lot like when you were in elementary school. The difference here is recess goes all day long with 15 minute work breaks.
“This won’t hurt a bit"
In keeping with my philosophy that things are better if you can have fun doing it I promise a fun easy read but with a HUGE return on insights. Then perhaps one day you will become a goofy guru like me and together we can start a new movement and make the world a better and happier place.
