A Scout is cheerful. A Scout looks for the bright side of life. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy.
Cheerfulness is the natural state of most boys. They may be sad, tired, frustrated or afraid or a time but given the opportunity they resume their usual cheerful demeanor.
Opportunity to challenge themselves rather than having challenge thrust upon them.
Opportunity to explore and discover an ever-broadening world.
Opportunity to form and cement friendships with one another.
Opportunity to experience the wide outdoor world in all of its many glories.
Opportunity to sit and think or sometimes just sit.
Most of these opportunities arise naturally in the course of Scouting we have only to see that no one stands in their way.
