Attitude for 31st of March 2011
“It is so hard when I have to and so easy when I want to” by Annie Gottlier.
Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful ‘engines’ that there has ever existed. You can do a lot more with ten people who are burning with enthusiasm to do something than with one hundred people who are indifferent and apathetic. If people do not want to do something you will have to drag them and think of zillions reasons to motivate them. Enthusiastic people will not need any push from outside as they have a pretty strong drive from inside.
So, if you think how to do one thing or another, you’d better first check if you have enthusiasm to do that thing or not. If you do not have it, the answer of how to do that will not help you much. You should have power to do the thing and then you can think of how to do it. Enthusiasm will give you zillions of how, apathy will only show the bad side of the thing and will give you a zillion of reasons how difficult or impossible it is to do the thing. So, make enthusiasm as number one driver in your work and life. That’s the right attitude to start, continue and finish anything you undertake to do.
