Turn On Something Positive Inside
"Enthusiam attracts more passengers."
I found this the other day in something I was reading, and thought it was worth passing along.
Did you know the word enthusiasm comes from the Greek "en theos", which means "filled with the divine"? When you get excited about your life and your work, you bring a powerful , divine energy to everything you do. And when you are excited about something, you attract other people to your cause as well. They want to be around you because enthusiasm is a winning feeling, a warm feeling, a fun feeling.
Enthusiasm is power. With faith, it can transform adversity, failure, or temporary setbacks into action – action that moves you forward toward your goals and dreams.
Seems like many of us in our 40’s and 50’s often lose the enthusiasm we recall from our youth. It can be hard to muster up excitement and energy. It's easy to get caught up in the schedule, the to-do's, the responsibilities....and lose sight of our ultimate vision for our lives, as well as the importance of having some fun along the way.
For example, it becomes easy to make excuses for not exercising regularly. “Too busy…change in schedule messed up my day…no energy at the end of the day”. And we forfeit one of the most effective ways to supply energy and enthusiasm into our lives.
Yes, exercising regularly – even for short to moderate amounts of time – can have a huge impact on your energy levels, your productivity, your confidence, and your mood. Once you embark on a program of regular, consistent exercise - even if it's only 15 minutes a day - something changes inside you.Continued on the next page
