Enthusiasm: Per Vincent van Gogh

Color in a picture is like
enthusiasm in life.
                                                                                      ~Vincent van Gogh

Think of your life as a blank canvas.

What are some ways you can “paint”
your life in order to open fully
to the gifts of enthusiasm?

Celebrating the Month of Enthusiasm! 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Month of Enthusiasm! kickoff

     It's been a while since I've posted on this site. Yes, like many of you, the stuff of life called my attention as well as my desire to pause to consider the direction I wanted to go, personally and professionally.

     One thing that has been and is still important is for me to do what makes my Soul sing and Spirit soar. Writing is one of the Soul singing, Spirit soaring pursuits that sparks my joy and delight. The topic of Enthusiasm! is another, whether it's writing, researching, speaking or facilitating programs.

     I'll be providing quotes, tips, insights and practices, which will provide you the opportunity to harness your enthusiasm to celebrate the month of Enthusiasm! 

     I'm looking forward to sharing this time and insights with you.

     And now here's something to ponder:

"Enthusiasm is the greatest asset in the world.

It beats money, power and influence."

2013 Month of Enthusiasm!

Well here we are again. October is the Month of Enthusiasm!

As the Ambassador of Enthusiasm!, once again I'll be providing a variety of posts and other activities to create awareness, spread the word, ignite the spark...about the power, energy, force, gifts of enthusiasm in our lives.

I've been asked many times, jokingly I hope, if people are to be enthusiastic just for the month of October. My response, "Yes" be enthusiastic in October and every day of the year or as many as possible; we are talking about life after all.

So today is the 2013 kickoff. More to come so keep checking back.

And here's a quote for you.
Life's blows cannot break a person whose rich spirit is warmed at the fire of enthusiasm.
                                                                                                               - Norman Vincent Peale
Here's to a great October.

Enthusiasm & Joy

Throughout the years, I have discovered the powerful connection between

* enthusiasm and creativity
* enthusiasm and energy
* enthusiasm and joy
* enthusiasm and success

and this is just for starters.

As serendipity often goes, I came across the following as I was looking through my files for something completely different:

On this day of your life...know that enthusiasm is half of the journey to success, and all of the journey to joy.

If you're going to do something, do it with gusto. Don't do anything half-heartedly. That dishonors the doing and the doer. So go for it. Hold nothing back. In life. Or love. Or anything at all.

Neale Donald Walsch

May your journey be one of great joy.

Enthusiasm! Points to Ponder

Here is a quote that sums up the essence of enthusiasm:

"...When we are enthusiastic, we move with an affirmative energy that propels us to skillfully and joyously meet all that comes into our experience. We explore the life lessons in our experiences, welcome them, and take them to heart.

Enthusiasm is not something you have to create; it is an organic quality of your consciousness. You have only to invite it forth, to let it arise from within you and let it fuel your endeavors, your creative expressions and your interactions with others..."

~Michael Bernard Beckwith
