is defined as "lively interest" and synonymous with eagerness, warmth, fervor, passion, devotion. Enthusiastic
people are usually the happiest and healthiest. They get
things done and encourage others to do the same.
What to do then in the humdrum of life when enthusiasm is hard
to find, when the weather is gloomy, or troubles
come knocking at your door?
After a failed marriage, Mary Kay Ash
was down in the dumps. She lost the promotion she was working for in
favor of the man she was training. Frustrated, she left her
job and instead started writing a book about helping women in
business. Her enthusiasm paid off for little did she know that
the book would be her business plan for the swift success of Mary
Her company advocated "praising people
to success" and having a work-life balance putting "God first,
family second, career third" as one of their core values.
Receiving numerous awards, Mary Kay's business philosophy is now
being taught in the Harvard Business School.
"A mediocre idea that generates
enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one."
-Mary Kay Ash
Being fully alive means being
enthusiastic in the present moment, seeing the gift that each moment
of life is.
Make an assessment of your life
situation, what you feel good about and what you don't.
Which part of your life needs more enthusiasm?
Decide to leave the past in the past
and be committed to moving forward. Dream dreams and believe
that you can achieve anything you put your mind and energies
Memorize by heart Philippians 4:13 "I
can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
Surround yourself with enthusiastic
people and ask them where their passion and drive come
Put enthusiasm quotes all around your
work desk to inspire you. (see column right)
Take care of your diet. What you
eat affects your mood. These are known enthusiasm promoters:
Sardines, Cabbage, Broccoli, Whole Wheat Bread, Green Tea,
Make time for the things you enjoy
doing. Your enthusiasm will surely show and grow!

”One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes,
another for 30 days, but it is the man who has it for 30 years who
makes a success of his life.” – Edward B. Butler
"If you can give your son or daughter
only one gift, let it be enthusiasm." -Bruce Barton
"Enthusiasm is the great hill-climber."
"Every great and commanding moment in
the annals of the world is the triumph of some
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"There is real magic in enthusiasm. It
spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment." -
Norman Vincent Peale
