Welcome to Wednesday

Are you still enthusiastic about the arrival of Spring? I sure wish it would stick around for more than a day.  Maybe you are enthusiastic about a certain team being the NCAA basketball Final Four. The teams that are there obviously did not consult my bracket. Perhaps you are enthusiastic about an upcoming holiday, birthday, anniversary, or starting on a new project.  Whatever it is you are looking forward to, here are some thoughts on how to build your enthusiasm for it:



Enthusiasm is defined as, “Strong excitement about something; a strong feeling of active interest in something that you like or enjoy.” Enthusiasm is the ability to bring life and excitement to different situations. Enthusiasm often leads to a higher level of involvement both for individuals and for groups. Those who demonstrate enthusiasm bring an energy and level of intensity to themselves and those they work with.

People with enthusiasm are positive people. They feel alive and enjoy the moment. They make decisions. They are creative. They accept risks. They don’t let fear stop them. They have confidence in themselves. They work hard to get what they want. Enthusiasm inspires confidence, increases vitality, raises morale and builds loyalty. Enthusiasm is also contagious.

Enthusiasm inspires you to move forward in a positive direction of your own choosing. Enthusiasm is a gift you can give yourself. Sometimes it comes naturally other times it is something you need to activate within yourself. Melissa Dinwiddie offers the following suggestions on how to stay enthusiastic even when you are drowning in work:

  • Act enthusiastic.
  • Spend 15 minutes a day doing something you love.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Feed yourself well.
  • Move your body.
  • Meditate.
  • Clear out clutter.
  • Spend time with enthusiastic people.
  • Learn to say no.
  • Practice spontaneous acts of kindness.

So, give yourself a gift and get up, get moving, put your ideas into motion and do it with ENTHUSIASM!
