August 24, 2016 – Enthusiasm
“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) English novelist and philosopher
Enthusiasm is irresistible, contagious, exciting, powerful, and the basis of success. Of course, it must be authentic; otherwise it comes off as hype.
Often it is a real challenge to maintain enthusiasm as we age; life has a way of beating us down, exhausting us, and wearing us out.
Maybe the key is to continue to ask ourselves:
“What do I really love?
“What do I really care about?
If you’re accustomed to asking yourself that kind of question, you likely have ready answers. But if you’re not, don’t be surprised if you don’t come up with answers right away.
But no matter your age, you have answers.
Seek them out!
