The Power of Enthusiasm

Dr. Allen Lycka Golden Pearls

Do you want people to love you? Do you want to enjoy every day-no matter what? Do you want to succeed in your career? 

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I wrote a book. Well, it’s not a secret! By now, you know all about it. And, how exciting is it that it is a bestseller. In “The Secrets to Living a Fantastic Life,” I talk about 13 ways you can live your best life. Today, I want to dive deeper into one of my favourite  pearls and share how powerful it is.  

So, what is the secret? ENTHUSIASM! 

Let me explain why. 

It Attracts People to You 

No one wants to be around someone who is constantly negative. When you bring enthusiastic energy, people will gravitate to you. Try it just for an hour and you will be amazed. I remember one time at a seminar I had to give a speech. On this day, I was tired and missed my family. However, I came onto the stage and devoted all my energy into the speech. By the end, I was given a standing ovation and was the talk of the seminar. People are attracted to the energy you put out, so put out an enthusiastic and positive one. 

It Makes You Happy 

The enthusiastic mindset pulls dopamine (the happy drug) into your body and you become happy! In my story above, I was on stage for two hours and by the end of it I was pumped. Enthusiasm is an energy that you give to others, and to yourself. Meet each day with excitement and positivity and you will see your life change.  

It Will Put You Ahead in Your Career 

Do you know how most businesses hire? It usually comes down to these questions: can I or my team successfully work with this person? And how will they affect the workplace culture? Guess what? The enthusiastic person who knows most of the skills needed will get the job over the highly skilled Negative Nancy. 

In my book, I discuss enthusiasm for a whole chapter. Practicing it will change your life for the better. I guarantee you that. I challenge you to try it for an hour! Be unapologetically enthusiastic and watch how people respond to you and how you feel. It may tire you out, as it takes a lot of energy. That is why if you want to be enthusiastic, you need to make sure you are meeting your basic needs…but more on that in my book.
