Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
-- Rachel Carson

Enthusiasm can win over even the most ardent skeptic. When you truly believe in what you are doing, it shows. And it pays. The winners in life are those who are excited about where they’re going.

Be genuinely enthusiastic, and you’ll be impossible to ignore. Show enthusiasm, and it will spread. People are drawn to enthusiasm.

Find a way to be truly enthusiastic about what you’re doing. If you can’t muster any enthusiasm, then why in the world are you doing it? There are so many opportunities in this life. Do you really want to waste your precious time in the service of something which does not even warrant your own enthusiasm?

Be as effective as you can be by infusing your actions with enthusiasm. Nothing is more insincere than phony enthusiasm. Don’t fake it. Be truly enthusiastic. Get excited, and let it show.

— Ralph Marston
