Enthusiasm is defined as “a feeling of excitement and active interest” by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Some call it “zest” and see it as being characterized by being “engaged and activated.” Generally speaking, you’ll know you’re feeling enthusiasm when you feel positive, can’t wait to get started, or get lost in a project.
Are people born with enthusiasm? To some degree, yes. In your life, you’ve probably met many people who seem naturally enthusiastic. While some of them have learned these skills, anyone who has been around babies and toddlers will tell you some children are just more prone to being interested and engaged with the world than others. In short, they’re already enthusiastic even when they’re infants, giggling gleefully at each discovery.
At the same time, we can learn enthusiasm. When you teach a child to be interested in the world, awaken their curiosity and instill in them a love of learning, you are guiding them toward becoming more enthusiastic individuals as they grow older.
But what happens when you lose that zest for your business? Can you find it again? I say yes!
First, take time to focus on your mental health. That can help you see things differently. Also, take small steps of focused learning on what’s good for you (and not just trends) and schedule 1 to 2 sessions with a business coach to map out new create ways you can support your audience/customers.
In simpler words, bring back the enthusiasm that has gone dry. You may be surprised how everyone around you will love the new excited you!
