Monday Sparks!

Our Monday Spark for this week begins with a quote from W. Clement Stone

"Enthusiasm is a state of mind that inspires and arouses a person to action, it is contagious and effects not only the enthused, but everyone with whom he or she comes in contact…Enthusiasm is to a person what gasoline is to the engine of an automobile; the vital moving force…If you mix enthusiasm with your work, it will never be difficult or monotonous. It will be fun and exciting…"

Did you know?

…It wasn’t until I began delving into studying enthusiasm that I realized how little many of us know and understand about the subject. Some basic awarenesses include:

* Everyone has enthusiasm. It is innate within us.

* Different personality types and behavioral styles express enthusiasm in different ways.

* Enthusiasm is often thought of in positive terms; though a small percentage of people view it negatively.

* There is a short-term and a long-term focus.

* The physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic aspects of your beingness are affected. Enthusiasm is holistic.

* Enthusiasm is a powerful gift and tool. Everyone has the ability to generate it in themselves and others.

There is so much to know about and experience with enthusiasm. You owe it to yourself to harness this dynamic force within you and in your life. Start today by asking yourself how enthusiasm shows up in your life.
