Are you surrounded at work by people who look bored, uninspired and like they could opt out at any given opportunity? Well, you may have something to do with it; have you seen your face lately? You have been quite cranky and unapproachable and it’s beginning to rub off on those around you; our inner sentiments spoken or unspoken create an environment around us; people suck up to your vibe negative or positive. You get it?
If you have any challenge before you right now it is not how to communicate your lofty dream to your workers, or how to get them to pursue your goals as their own and be happy about it, it is how to stay enthusiastic yourself as you lead them. Without enthusiasm even the greatest idea will plummet mid-air for its lack of ability to inspire and invigorate.’ People are only coming with you because of how you make them feel!’
Before you worry about your team losing fervor on the job, worry about how to keep a smile on your own face every day you come to work and every time you talk about your common goals. You can change their attitude by developing enthusiasm about your work; laugh, smile, sound positive about your goals and cheer others on regardless of how you really feel!
Winston Churchill said, ‘’success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.’’ You can lose an investment, a partner or a facility but do not ever lose your enthusiasm! The loss of enthusiasm cannot be compensated for by any amount of hard work. Don’t spend more time using blunt tools, whet your axes!
Feed your enthusiasm with the most positive vision of your future. Stay in touch with what you have already going for you. Paint a picture a blind man can see in colors, and do it most excitedly! Once you are bitten by the bug of enthusiasm, everyone else will catch on. It’s infectious!
Please share and invite your friends to read too! Let us know how you keep your enthusiasm.
