“Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.”
Jyot explains that enthusiasm is a sense of inspiration. He says the word comes from the ancient Greek, meaning “the god within.”
It is a connection between your inner power and the energy and excitement you add to whatever you do, Jyot says.
Even if you may not feel naturally enthusiastic, he suggests that any time you act “as if” you are enthusiastic, you start to take on that quality.
When you are feeling low, he suggests that you check your posture. If you are slumped, take a deep breath by drawing your shoulders back and pull upward.
Jyot also suggests you surround yourself with positive, enthusiastic people. Enthusiasm is contagious. It will catch you.
He writes: “Live your life to the fullest with enthusiasm as French writer Emile Zola wrote: ‘If you ask me what I came to do in this world … I will answer you, I am here to live out loud.'”
