“You can do anything if you have enthusiasm….Enthusiasm is the spark in your eye, the spring in the gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of your will and your energy to execute your ideas….Enthusiasm is at the bottom os all progress! With it, there is accomplishment. Without it there are only alibis.” Henry Ford
Our friend Ford knew a thing or two about enthusiasm. He built his company up from nothing to an industrial powerhouse—one that’s still turning our cars today.
Enthusiasm is the spark that puts everything in motion. When we’re enthusiastic, we come to the page with zest and brio. We’re fearless and focused. But sometimes it’s hard to come by. Instead of feeling excited, we feel enervated. Instead of focused, we feel fragmented.
What to do, what to do?
There is a simple solution: Act enthusiastic and you’ll become enthusiastic! You can act your way out of one feeling an into another. When you feel sluggish and unmotivated, you can act differently than you feel. And as my friend and mentor Dr. Rob Gilbert says, “Act the way you want to become and you’ll become the way you act.” *
What a fantastic idea! Act the way you want to become and you’ll become the way you act!
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? How would you act if you were enthusiastic about your day’s work? You’d put some pep in your step. You’d get yourself organized and ready for action. You’d come to the page with purpose—a goal you wanted to accomplish. You’d envision how satisfied and fulfilled you’ll be when you meet your target.
You get the idea! So let’s summon up that spark! Let’s rev up the engine of enthusiasm and tackle our day in high gear as we all write on!
