It’s not always easy to be enthusiastic, especially when it seems like you’re the only one with more work than you think you could possibly handle.
Sometimes life, work, family or activities can drain your energy. However, we can keep our enthusiasm at a high. The following strategies should help keep you motivated:
Be enthusiastic. Many times, we condition ourselves to be negative. We are afraid of being viewed as being overly enthusiastic or unrealistic. Some believe this will soften the blow of any problems or difficult situations that come along. Yet, by simply being enthusiastic, it eventually becomes real. Others pick up on enthusiasm, become excited themselves, and then give their enthusiasm back. It becomes a beautiful circle of energy.
Don’t criticize, condemn or complain. And don’t put up with people who do. Another person’s negativity affects your own. It becomes a negative, ongoing cycle that is easy to begin, but can be difficult to come out of. Don’t fall for it from the beginning. Consciously decide to generate enthusiasm.
