Get yourself interested

The way to get good is to get interested. The way to get great is to get downright fascinated and passionate.

Imagine being completely intrigued, and so passionate about something that you simply can’t get too much of it. When you can do that in some particular field of expertise or endeavor, you can accomplish anything you choose to accomplish in that area.

And how do you do that? How do you bring out that passion and intensity of interest in something?

You immerse yourself in it. You stimulate all your senses with it, focus all your thoughts on it, and open all your emotions to it.

At first, that’s an effort, to get yourself to get interested. Yet the more you persist, the more you will truly get into it, and the easier it becomes.

The world will lay reward after reward upon those who live with genuine, passionate interest. Be that person, get yourself interested, build the passion and achieve something truly outstanding.
