Enthusiasm! @ Work: Let the Magic Begin

October 2007 Month of Enthusiasm!

Enthusiasm! @ Work
Let the Magic Begin

Several years I came across Disney’s Marketing Philosophy, which stated:

Do what you do so well,
that when people see what it is you do,
they want to see you do it again,
or bring others to show them what it is you do.

This is just as powerful today as it was when I first discovered it.

Walt Disney was a talented, innovative, courageous man. He followed his passion. Walt allowed his energy and enthusiasm to guide him in uncharted waters on many occasions. Millions of people around the world have been positively impacted because he was true to himself, true to his dreams. Walt’s personal story is one of inspiration, determination and resiliency; it is well worth reading. You will come to know the many ways Enthusiasm! @ Work, in your life and work, can manifest. You will discover the magic, when one harnesses the power of enthusiasm.

Another quote that addresses this comes from Norman Vincent Peale.
Think enthusiastically about everything,
but especially about your job.
If you do you’ll put a touch of glory in your life.
If you love your job with enthusiasm, you’ll shake it to pieces.
You’ll love it into greatness.
You’ll upgrade it, you’ll fill it with prestige and power.

This is what Walt Disney, the man, has done. It also relays how the magic of one man has affected an entire organization, the Disney corporation, long after the man has left this earthly plane. That, dear friends, is magic!

Some of you may be wondering what to do when you feel the magic has dwindled along with your enthusiasm. Well you could follow the advice of one wise man, Longfellow, who says:

The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you do well,
and doing well whatever you do.

The magic often comes down the choices we make. Just as you have learned that enthusiasm is a power/energy/force/expression; it is also a choice. Begin now to choose to allow Enthusiasm! @ WorkSM and let the Magic Begin.
