Get Fired Up or Get Fired

Welcome to a new month. Today is the first day of February. Are you excited about the new month? I hope you are enthusiastic about it. Being enthusiastic about life makes you more confident and productive. It also makes you more attractive professionally and personally therefore opening you up to opportunities. Think about it. Few people want to be around a sad, moody or cynical person. As Henrik Edberg says: with enthusiasm things often get done better and more easily than, if you were to muster up the will to do them in an unenthusiastic way.

So do you feel you could use more enthusiasm in your life and work?

Here are some tips that have helped me;

  1. Whatever you do, be it your job, business, volunteer work etc, do it with all your heart even if the job is boring and doesn’t pay well.
  2. Regularly remind yourself about what you have and be grateful for them. You can do this by having a list of things you are thankful for -Your family, children, health, job, achievements, and friends.
  3. Don’t get offended. Please learn to let things go. Offense just leads to bitterness and anger and a host of other negative emotions that take away from you. Nothing good comes out of taking offense.
  4. Don’t think about past mistakes and things you can’t change. If you are going to think about the past, think about past successes and allow them motivate you to be enthusiastic about the future.
  5. Tackle issues one after the other so you don’t feel overwhelmed and drained.
  6. Enthusiasm like most emotions, are contagious so surround yourself with enthusiastic people.
  7. Strengthen your faith. Regularly meditate on God’s word. You can’t come away from doing this and not be excited about the day.
  8. Eat healthy and exercise. Don’t skip meals especially breakfast. It will boost your energy levels which makes it easier for you to be enthusiastic.

Make these tips part of your life. Don’t let anything rob you of your enthusiasm. Don’t let traffic, the state of the economy, problems, opposition steal your joy and enthusiasm for life and work.

I’ll leave you with two quotes;

If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm –  Vince Lombardi

Your level of joy determines your level of productivity – Pastor Poju Oyemade
