    Timely video for me. I've made a point of changing my career path. I've experienced all 8 and could add a few more. While I went through each of these self changing awareness fun principles in a different order, it wasn't easy for me to step outside myself and be the creative person that I was meant to be. I bloomed where I plopped, found success, built an income stream that is difficult to replace and navigating a new career is difficult in our current economy. I can personally relate to the scare yourself into fun principle. I felt like I was going to lose it all by not returning to my old career, but doing what I really want in life is slowly turning into a “win” for me. I've made many new friends in the social media arena. This group is more helpful and sharing than any group of professionals that I've encountered throughout my career. And, Chris, thanks for all the material you share.

    You have a bad link for the “Also, check out” – but what is a little typo among friends;)

    Best 5 minutes I'll spend all week! Absolutely mesmerizing. Every quote roped me right in and awakened every single neuron and nerve ending.

    Awesome-O-Matic. Thanks for starting my week off with some fun!

    Thanks for sharing this, Chris! We're all about “fun” at The Fun Times Guide… so this was great to see :-D

    Great video – thanks for sharing

  • Nancy Baum Delain

    I love this video, too, Chris. It helps me detox from stressing out over the little stuff, and over life in general. Anything to help keep things in perspective….

    Thanks for sharing it.

    Seriously, this is a great vid. I'm sure I recall seeing many of the messages before but this is the single best presentation of the entire package.

    That said, I'm not sure if “fun” is the right term when it comes to those messages but certainly they are great words to live by.

  • Marci

    It's cool to see something that says what I'm trying to live. I've been going after my 101 dreams come true with full gusto. The journey sometimes goes against everything society says we should be. But it's much more fun than doing what society says we should be. Check out my site I would love to chat with someone who feels the same way about life. There is also a book called the 7 Lively Sins that I think everyone should read. It's kind of like the video but in book form. Have a great day, Marci

    I love it! I love it! I love it! Principle #6 is my favorite. I wonder what would happen if I watched this every day for 30 days straight? Hmm, yet another home page tab in the works?

    Great video! I think we get our perspectives all out of whack sometimes.

    Thanks for sharing, Chris. You have your head in the right place. Thanks for helping all of us do the same.
    This reminds me of a well-know story I heard (can't remember where) about a consultant who was asked by a struggling company to talk about the importance of fun and how to encourage it at work to increase productivity. Being the orderly company that had rules for everything including how presentations should be done, one of the company's executives asked for a preview of the presentation the consultant was planning to give, in the form of a poweropint with bulletpoints highlighting the key points. Sure thing, said the consultant, and promptly emailed the executive a powerpoint with the following bulletpoints:

    Thanks for sharing this video. It is an eye opener for sure.

    This is one video that some folks (including myself) should possibly watch at least once a week as a reminder and to keep you on track and to be focused.

    I am adding to my favorites, that's for sure!

    Thanks for all you do as always!
