How To Nurture A Constant Flow Of
by Rick Saldan
When was the last time that you went to a party and watched
someone walk into the room to bring in a fresh aura of enthusiasm
and cheerfulness? The new visitor seemed to be having an
electrifying presence, captivating those in the room with his or
her personality, body language and overall charisma. It is not
rare to meet people like these who do not seem to have a thread of
worry in their heads of lives. They seem not to walk but glide in
and out of our lives, leaving us happy, content and energized. But
are they super human beings or mere mortal souls like you and me?
Incredible as it may sound, these people are very ordinary human
beings, who have probably more worries and tensions that you and I
combined. Yet they manage to rise beyond treating adversities with
knowledge and wisdom, as situations which can be tackled with
ease. They, in all likelihood, have cultivated and consciously
inculcated one of the most essential elements of human spirit
called ‘enthusiasm'. This is nearly as contagious as yawning and
an enthused person would always spread cheer, happiness and
contentment amongst those around him.
It is interesting to find this trait of not just remaining
enthusiastic but also spreading the same feeling to others amongst
every leader, irrespective of the sphere of his leadership. We
call them by several names: vivacious, charismatic, dynamic and so
on. What they essentially do is to instill the fire in the belly
of all those who come next to them. They instill courage,
self-confidence, and self-belief amongst their subordinates, team
members and colleagues. Is it possible for you to develop this
excellent positive trait and change your personality for good? The
answer is a definite YES. Here are some steps to get you started:
1. I have met a person who never seemed to have any worry when he
went to bed every night and slept like a child. He shared his
secret with me once and mentioned that he keeps all the worries
which crop up in his mind till the next morning, when he can view
everything in a fresh perspective! When he went to work, he left
his worries at home and when he returned home, he left them in the
office. This very seemingly simple trick helped him to remain
enthusiastic through out the day and look positive to others.
2. The things that are positive in our lives are actually
countless, if you start to think hard. Starting from the country
where you are born, to your family, your home, your job, your
children, you can not simply complete counting your blessings.
Concentrate on all that is happening well and your achievements
rather than things which are not going according to your plan.
Remember the old Chinese philosophy of yin-yang. It focuses on the
duality of everything in life, from day and night, good and evil,
rich and poor, and more to confirm that life is all about having
the good and bad, in nearly equal measure. If there was no
ingratitude, we would never learn to be grateful.
3. Think positive all the time. Make enthusiasm a habit. Stop
being judgmental about others – because it is not your
responsibility. Before being critical about anything, look at the
resulting benefit of a situation or goodness of others.
4. Nature created one mouth but two ears. Learn from this natural
and physical attribute – you are created to listen more and talk
less! Remember, the world is full of people wanting their stories
to be heard. The more you listen, the more compassionate people
think you to be. By listening to others, you are subconsciously
spreading enthusiasm to others.
5. There is nothing as good as humor to keep you enthused all the
time. Instead of practicing laughing or making fun of others,
learn to laugh at yourself – considered to be the best sense of
humor one can have. When you have a good sense of humor, you would
automatically draw people towards you as they start feeling
relaxed in your company. When you develop the sense where you
treat any adverse situation with a pinch of relevant humor, you
land up being the most desirable company, where ever you go.
6. Smiling often would not only lifts your own mood, it would
spread cheer to those around you. Being critical about life need
not necessarily result in a constant frown – you have the power in
you to turn it into a smile, not a wry one at that. When you sport
a genuine smile and not a smirk, you would be surprised at the
number of people who are enthused in your presence.
7. I have always believed in self-patting to keep me motivated and
enthused. To find your boss at the right time at the right place
to praise you for a job well done is mostly a dream. Instead of
sulking on your way back home, think what a great person you are
to have accomplished this nearly-impossible task. If there is no
one to take you for a treat, treat yourself to a movie or go to
one of your favorite restaurants and treat yourself with your
favorite goodies. Its positive impact on your mind is quite
amazing. Reward yourself, as often as you want and you can have a
constant flow of enthusiasm coming out of nowhere!
There can never be any fixed agenda which you have to follow by
which you can develop an enthusiastic deportment. You don't even
have to wait till Christmas to begin your efforts. Start today
with an open and positive mind, and before you know how and when
the change happened, you would surely start to surprise your
colleagues, friends and family. Enthusiasm is contagious, and
generates it's own momentum. Rise to the challenge, and practice
sparking enthusiasm in yourself and others each and every day!
