How you perceive the different aspects of your life will have a massive impact on how much enthusiasm you bring to each of them.

If you see things as an unfortunate duty, you will dread doing them, avoid them and probably not do a very good job of them.

Conversely, if you see your activities as a privilege and an opportunity to do your best work, you will have more passion, more energy and become much more effective.

It’s the difference between feeling as though you have to so something, or feeling as though you get to do something.

So let me ask you:

Do you have to go to work, or do you get to?

Do you have to spend time with your kids, or do you get to?

Do you have to serve your customers, or do you get to?

Do you have to go to church, or so you get to?

Do you have to learn new skills and develop personally, or do you get to?

Do you have to make a positive contribution to the world, or do you get to?

Remember, you choose the answers to these questions, so choose wisely and find a way to see the positive aspects in what you do?
