Whenever there is enthusiasm, there is a creative empowerment that goes far beyond what a mere person is capable of.
—Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
Passion, excitement and enthusiasm are all very important parts of success and ones that are often overlooked.
Consider for a moment a time in your career when you really weren’t excited about your job or a certain project. If you are truly honest with yourself, did you put your whole self into that job or project? Did you achieve the very best results you could have? Although it is possible to achieve good results when you lack passion, amazing results and grand accomplishments are much less likely. Consider another time in your life when you were really excited and enthusiastic about a project, were the results merely good or were they beyond what you could have imagined?
When we are excited and passionate we are definitely more likely to achieve great results than when a task or activity seems boring or when we lose our passion. The next time you find yourself “dragging your heels”, ask yourself what you can do to gain excitement about the project. Finding enthusiasm is a definite way to ensure better results and enjoy the process while you are in it!
