Spice Up Your Journey

Enthusiasm is intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval. It is a state of mind that inspires or arouses one to put action into the task at hand. It is the fuel that feeds your mind and body. Here are a few thoughts on how to unleash the power of enthusiasm in your life:

1) Enthusiasm will so energize your mind that you will find yourself moving towards the attainment of things that might have once seemed impossible. Enthusiasm will make obstacles seemingly melt away like magic. It is the best weapon to overcome the fear that creates self-doubt. 

2) Enthusiasm will also energize your body. It is the fuel that will allow you to get along on half the amount of normal sleep while at the same time perform at higher levels than normal without becoming fatigued. Enthusiasm is the magic that can make you look up thinking you were at something for an hour only to find it has been all night.  

3) Your level of enthusiasm will determine how successful you are in any venture in life. If you are enthusiastic about your work or a project, your performance will soar and it will bring the maximum level of enjoyment and fulfillment. On the flip side, if you lack enthusiasm for your work, your performance, happiness, and the ultimate reward will all suffer. 

4) Enthusiasm is contagious and vitally affects not only you but all whom you come in contact with. Communication is broken down into 55% body language, 38% tone, and 7% verbal. Enthusiasm is what makes all of the forms of communication harmonize to maximize the influence it has on others. In order to have maximum influence, we must deliver a verbal message with enthusiastic body language and tone. 

Enthusiasm is the fuel that feeds your mind and body and is the secret sauce required to influence others. Regardless of what you are aiming for in life, apply some enthusiasm and it will be guaranteed to spice up your journey.
