Every human being that has ever walked on this planet has one thing in common: resilience. There have been many occasions in the human history that have left us devastated and broken but the human race has been able to rise up from the ashes like a beautiful red and gold phoenix; stronger, wiser and braver than before and ready to take on the next unfortunate event that comes their way.
This not only happens when we talk collectively about human civilization; this is also true on individual level. There are many success stories that really show us what human beings are really capable of once they set their mind to something. Individuals have succeeded in creating tech empires singlehandedly, have succeeded in setting foot on the land which no one dared tread and have even come from the brink of death. If there was one common thing that drove all these people and the human kind it was, without a doubt, enthusiasm.
That doesn’t mean that enthusiasm is the only thing needed for success but it wouldn’t be wrong to say that it is the most important thing needed if one wants to become successful. There are plenty of reasons why this is true. Here we will take a look at a few of them so that you not only understand its importance but also try to make enthusiasm a part of your daily routine.
1. Enthusiasm makes it hard to give up on something
One thing that should be crystal clear is that enthusiasm isn’t about a person or a group of people. Enthusiasm is about an idea or a vision. That is the reason that if you develop enthusiasm about a certain subject, you won’t give up on it easily. You will stick with it for as long as you need to stick with it and you will make sure that you see it to the end.
This the reason that it is very important to cultivate a sense of enthusiasm not only in ourselves but in the people that we surround ourselves with.
2. Enthusiasm spreads like smiles
Enthusiasm like smiles (and yawns) is infectious. All you need in a group is for one person to be really enthusiastic and others won’t be able to resist the urge to be just as enthusiastic as that person. It is exactly what makes a group really put their back into a project that seemed the most boring thing on the planet just mere moments ago.
If you are enthusiastic then you can make others enthusiastic. This means that your productivity will shoot up and you will become successful with time.
3. Enthusiasm can make you creative
Yes, it’s true. Being enthusiastic about something is the first step of being creative about that particular subject. If you lose your enthusiasm then you won’t be willing to put in the effort that is required to think outside the box and come up with new ways that can bring about change.
If you remain enthusiastic about a thing you won’t feel bad or won’t give up when you hit a roadblock. Instead, you will redouble your efforts to overcome that obstruction so that you can be on your way to your goal.
4. You can’t have fun without enthusiasm
When you are enthusiastic about something, you think outside the box. And that is what makes everything fun.
Being enthusiastic about an idea means that you won’t give up on it easily and that makes you throw the rules out the window. Once that happens, you can try new strategies and new things which form the basis of enjoyment.
