Thoughts of Enthusiasm

Star Bunny Studio 2012

Enthusiasm is a great source of motivation. Finding something that fills you with joyful energy can help to accomplish even the most ambitious of goals. However, staying enthusiastic in a world of rough roads can be a challenge. Here are my top five ways to keep a bubble of joyful enthusiasm from bursting.

1. Be optimistic in your thoughts. You are what you think so, make the most of the best, and the least of the worst. 

2. Express gratitude. Actively being grateful for what you have will give you joy. Write a Thank You Note express your gratitude for others, this will help you to have even more to be grateful for.

3. Find patience. Realize not everything in life is instantaneous, as they say "good things come to those who wait". This can be tough, just remember if you are willing to wait out the storm, the sun will return. 

4. Have fun! Okay, not everything in life is fun. Sometimes you have to get creative to find fun aspects in the mundane. However, it is always worth the effort.

5. LOVE. Above all else you must find love in what you do. Passion is a force that will supply endless amounts of enthusiasm, and motivation.

I hope these thoughts help you to find enthusiasm for the week ahead.
