Tip 11 – Enthusiasm comes from within, so you can get excited about everything
Enthusiasm ensures that you can take time to enjoy the simple wonders of the world. You can even get excited about a sidewalk tile. This enthusiasm comes from within yourself. An external object or event should not matter whether you are enthusiastic or not.
Why is enthusiasm so important?
First, enthusiasm is very useful for achieving goals. Enthusiasm helps you to imagine what is possible. You will follow your dreams with real joy.
In addition, others like to be in your presence if you are enthusiastic. They would like to have you around. Without enthusiasm you would be pessimistic and others would want to avoid you.
Someone who is not enthusiastic about anything finds everything boring, and is boring himself.
Without enthusiasm, everything is done slowly and without pleasure. All excitement and passion are missing. People give in, don’t fully commit, and do everything reluctantly.
Finally, use this affirmation for enthusiasm
I am full of enthusiasm. I give myself 100%. I use my imagination and am open to all the wonders that await me every day. I engage in these miracles with full commitment.
