You remember my old mucker Chris Barez- Brown.
Yes you do, the Upping Your Elvis guy.
You know, creativity guru.

That's the fella.
He has this "thing" about waking up.
The moment when you open your eyes and your brain has to suddenly bring you up to speed.
Who you are.
What you do.
And in my case, where am I?
Chris sees that precise moment as a real power opportunity.
You can be who you want to be.
What you want to be.
You can choose to be different.
I love that.
We all come across people who are just not happy in their role.
Too much responsibility.
Whatever the reason, something's not working.
And usually, neither are they.
They're going through the motions, but they're not achieving anything.
Happiness is a choice.
Whether you find your work enjoyable or not is also a choice.
Fun is a choice.
If you're happy you'll enjoy it.
If you enjoy it, you'll be great at it.
No matter what the 'it' happens to be.
