Having EnthusiasmAuthor: Catherine Pulsifer
Having enthusiasm in performing any task gives you an abundance of energy. Harry Truman demonstrated his wisdom when he said, "I studied the lives of great men and famous women, and I found that the men and women who got to the top were those who did the jobs they had in hand, with everything they had of energy and enthusiasm."
Showing enthusiasm also motivates others around you. People naturally want to be around people who are upbeat and have energy.
An acronym for enthusiasm:
Those who demonstrate enthusiasm are far more likely to succeed because of their attitude towards the task at hand. Someone who lacks enthusiasm rarely succeeds, and the reason is because of the attitude that they have. When they face a problem they are more likely to give up.
An enthusiastic person believes in what they are doing. They are excited and look forward to the day to achieve the task at hand. They have self-confidence in themselves and will find solutions to any challenges that come along. Walter Chrysler once said, "The real secret of success is enthusiasm. Yes, more than enthusiasm, I would say excitement. I like to see men get excited. When they get excited they make a success of their lives. " The wisdom of his words still applies today.
We all have a choice, we can decide to be enthusiastic or we can just put in the day. If you are working at a job that you are not enthusiastic about, then find work that excites you. If you need to improve your skills to get that job, then take courses and learn all you can. You will find your life is much happier if you are doing something that excites you rather than bores you.
Having enthusiasm for what you are doing does not mean you won't face challenges or difficulties, but you will be able to overcome these difficulties as long as you keep your attitude positive.
Put lots of enthusiasm in all you do!
