The Side Effects Of Enthusiasm

Updated on August 6, 2016

Being enthusiastic about what you are engaged in can make the difference between your ideas being somewhat embraced or being wholeheartedly accepted as something powerful and enriching...ENTHUSIASM IS A LIFE FORCE THAT WHEN HARNESSED CAN PUMP PROFOUND LOVE INTO YOUR ENDEAVORS...IT CAN TAKE YOU TO HEIGHTS NEVER DREAMED OF BEFORE...IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE INTO A LIFE YOU NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE...it can completely move mountains of doubt out of you way...change the simple into the grand...it can harness the power to awaken the sleeping...and it can open the fist of a tightly closed soul

Enthusiasm can bring people together and inspire hope...inspire growth...inspire people to believe in something grander than what their eyes can see...it can open the heart beyond recognition

Have you ever been around enthusiastic people...they are contagious...they drip with positivity and light...they are in a constant flux of newness...like a breath of fresh air they brush doubt from the darkest room...they believe that life has the power to enhance them...moving them onto higher ground moment by lovely moment...it is not by the use of ego that makes this true...it is simply by being ENTHUSIASTIC about oneself and one's life choices!

"IF I WASN'T ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT I DO IN MY LIFE...I DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD KNOW WHO I AM"...Karen Gibson Roc

Where Does Enthusiasm Come From?

it comes from letting go of what others think of you...it comes from finding and cultivating the joy in your being...it comes from doing the things that you love to do...it comes from living in your dream as opposed to thinking about it...it comes from taking action to live out your highest purpose day in and day out...it comes from dreaming big...it comes from dreaming bigger than you did the day before...it comes from being patient...knowing your next success is already a part of your souls imprint...it comes from being in tune with the backdrop of your life...it comes from never taking things too seriously...it comes with laughter...it comes in tears...it comes from creating with zeal...it comes from knowing that you are love

are you enthusiastic?

      Nothing is birthed in the spiritual or the natural realm without passion. God requires us to be wholehearted and will not accept halfhearted worship. In the natural, poeple must have a passion generally speaking for a women to conceive a child. I've heard that for the french, the one important life question for a person at thier funeral is- "did they have passion", because without passion nothing you did meant much!

      The moment "I" let go of what other think or think of me was the day I found true "freedom". Love this hub. I do wish this could be taught in school as a course of study...do you think it would work.
