Are you walking around in life down in the dumps and hoping something will magically change? Magic might happen, but those are long-shot odds my friend.
Instead of embracing the Gloomy Gus whom most of us befriend from time to time — try taking a proactive approach to adding more happiness in your life.
Here’s a simple thing you can do that is guaranteed … I kid you not … guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and maybe even a song in your heart: show some enthusiasm!
You ask, “what am I supposed to get enthusiastic about?” Anything! No matter how big or how small, becoming enthusiastic about something will lift you up in ways that can’t even imagine.
Your life might not be picture-perfect, but there has to be something in it to get excited about … even if it’s just celebrating the fact that the sun came up today and is sure to come up tomorrow, too.
“Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic.” — Dale Carnegie
Need some help getting charged up? Put on some music. Stand up … put a smile on your face … move your body … dance around like you’re the next champion on Dancing With the Stars.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” Susan Rabin advises, “Enthusiasm is contagious. Be a carrier.”
If you want to radically improve your life, start by showing more enthusiasm today!
P.S. We filmed an example of Enthusiasm in Action We think this guy knows how to show enthusiasm for his work … what do you think?
