Business Coaching for The Professional (6 of 17) Enthusiasm

Introduction to the Series:

Business fundamentals have been the same since the beginning of commerce. The true fundamentals are not anything you do; as some type of technique, although 'doing' is in the nature of a professional. The real fundamentals are who you are, and who you become.

Since I'm a big fan of series, I want to introduce you to 17 principles in developing unshakable character. These principles will contribute to great professional success.

The Greatest Benefit

In order to receive the greatest benefit from this series: after being introduced to the character or behavioral principles, think on paper of how you can apply it in your current environment.

Don't fall into the trap of 'I already do that.' evaluate how the principle can be used more in your life. The focus is 100% saturation of each principle before moving on. Aim to have congruence of character.

This is the Sixth Personal Principle:

Enthusiasm is the rare quality found in an environment that shouts 'obligation'. If you feel that you have lost your enthusiasm for who you are, what you do, or what you have; regardless of how much or how little you interpret it to be, you my friend are ungrateful. It is enthusiasm for who you are, what you do, and what you have that make life worth living and a business worth running.

If you don't get up in the moring looking forward to what you have scheduled for the day, regardless of your situation, you have some changing to do. 

Enthusiasm is an emotional response to gratitude. The fact is any emotional response, negative or positive, is a command to the subconscious to bring you more of those things in your life (and business) that are attached to that emotional charge. Positive emotions garner positive things, negative emotions garner negative things. The key is to be emersed in your purpose and those things that contribute to your well-being and sense of contribution.
