ENTHUSIASM

Thursday, November 08, 2012


ENTHUSIASM IS THE MAJOR PART OF DOING ANYTHING WELL. SOME PEOPLE ARE GLAD TO BE ALIVE AND OTHERS FEEL THE WHOLE THING IS AN ENDURANCE TEST. ONE PERSON HAS CONFRONTED TROUBLE AND SURVIVED; ANOTHER HAS NEVER REALLY HAD MUCH TROUBLE AND IS BORED WITH HIS OWN BREATH!

DO WE HAVE TO BE THREATENED BEFORE WE CAN APPRECIATE LIFE AND SHOW ENTHUSIASM? OR DO WE JUST NEED TO BE QUICKENED WITHIN OURSELVES TO KNOW GRATITUDE AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GROW. A SIMPLE CHANGE OF ATTITUDE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.

DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKE OF THINKING YOU HAVE ENTHUSIASM BECAUSE YOU ARE AN OPTIMIST.

SOME PEOPLE THINK ENTHUSIASM AND OPTIMISM ARE SYNONYMOUS - BUT OPTIMISM IS THE PHILOSOPHY THAT EVERYTHING WORKS OUT FOR THE BEST. ENTHUSIASM IS A COMMITMENT TO MAKING THE BEST OF EVERYTHING.

ENTHUSIASM IS A CHOICE. IT IS THE DETERMINATION TO MAKE THE MOST OF ANY SITUATION OR OPPORTUNITY.

ENTHUSIASM IS NOT BLIND TO PROBLEMS, BUT NEITHER IS IT HINDERED BY THEM.

WHEN YOU COMBINE THE NUMBERS 8 AND 16 YOU CAN HAVE 24 OR 128 - DEPENDING ON WHETHER YOU ADD THEM OR MULTIPLY THEM. ENTHUSIASM IS THE MULTIPLYING FORCE! ENTHUSIASM IS A DYNAMIC THAT DOES FOR THE HEART AND MIND WHAT ADRENALINE DOES FOR THE BODY - GIVING UNUSUAL STRENGTH IN THE FORCE OF SEEMING IMPOSSIBILITY.

ENTHUSIASM IS CAPITALIZING ON THE POTENTIAL OF A SITUATION WITHOUT BECOMING DISCOURAGED BY THE ODDS.

ENTHUSIASM IS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO MAKE IT WORK, RATHER THAN FOCUSING ON REASONS IT MIGHT NOT WORK.

ENTHUSIASM IS DARING THE IMPOSSIBLE, KNOWING YOU CAN'T MAKE IT, BUT TRYING BECAUSE YOU JUST MIGHT.
