  • Literally enthusiasm means a feeling of excitement; overflowing with eager enjoyment or approval; a lively interest..But come to think of it, without enthusiasm you will not feel successful in your life. In other words if you are not happy with your job or with whatever you do in life you will not feel successful. Always remember give your best in everything that you do.

    Everything is in the eye of the beholder, think positively about your situation, actions, choices and challenges. Look ahead to the rewards of success before you get there and focus on it like a carrot on a string over a rabbit's head.

    Enthusiasm is also contagious. If you are enthusiastic about your business, product, service, etc... then others are more likely to become enthusiastic with you - whether as a buyer, partner, affiliate, etc. Much of the feeling stems from your belief in yourself and your business. Believe in what you have, and the enthusiasm should follow.

    You will become enthusiast automatically when you do something that you love, something that you know will change your life, something that you know will give a great impact to the world.

    For example:
    An architect that forget his dinner when he is designing something.

      When you have high energy, you wanna to do something with most of enthusiastic to done them.
      That high energy is controlled by you. You can raise your energy whatever you want.
      By do anything that increase our energy for example: music, exercise, relax, motivation video... anything else that help.

      This. Although to be honest, I don't feel that enthusiasm is necessary to become successful. It's just one of those things that self help writers like to throw out because it sounds nice. Plenty of people go about jobs and careers that they find perfectly ordinary. It doesn't bum them out, but it doesn't exactly command their full attention 24/7 either. They rise through the ranks simply because they did their jobs, and reach that level of "success" that everyone is chasing.

      It's a great quality to have, but it really isn't necessary for everyone.

        You may be thinking like this because you are not of an enthusiastic nature. This is what I used to think to just pretend that I'm good without enthusiasm. But actually this is the quality that I sometimes miss too much. People like a person with enthusiastic nature. You dont want to sit quite among 4-5 people. YOu need to talk something interesting and keep the people interested in your conversation and personality and not not be like a boring person.

          Enthusiasm gives energy and drive. It makes an otherwise boring task very light. It is the candle that brightens in the dark hours of despondency

    Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice.

    Enthusiasm without endurance leads to failure and I think it is one of the great downfalls of many new marketers. Enthusiasm by itself is will get you no where because it is usually be too short lived to see results. Combined with endurance, perseverance and mite bit of creativity and you can achieve anything.

    People who try to boil down success into overly simplistic formulas are usually trying to sell you something.

    I think enthusiasm can be useful, but you must be responsible and set your goals. Enthusiasm is only small part of the success. Much more useful is creativity (e.g. brainstorming)

    Enthusiasm to me means passion. I'm watching wrestling with my nephew right now, talk about enthusiasm.
    Napoleon Hill recommends "having a good hearty laugh for one minute" when you begin your day. If not at the beginning at some point. Family Guy is one f my go-tos
