Enthusiasm can be defined by the last four letters of the word: I A m S eriously M otivated. Communicating commitment, determination, and spirit, enthusiasm is infectious and will affect everyone around you. And it will keep you motivated as well.
During my talks, I sometimes divide participants into two groups. I tell them were having an enthusiasm contest, and I want the first group to generate the most noise it can, while the second group waits for its turn . Without fail, the second group is always the loudest, for one simple reason: Enthusiasm is contagious. But dont take it from mego to any sporting event and watch the cheerleaders. Their pep gets the crowd excited, and the crowd s exuberance then spurs the athletes on to perform their best.
Trust that enthusiasm works: The applicant with the most enthusiasm usually wins the job; the dog with the most enthusiasm gets the treat; and the person with the most enthusiasm boosts him- or herself to success. Enthusiasm is a telltale sign that you believe in yourself and what youre trying to accomplishand when youre this convinced, other people will be, too.
