The Law of Success Part 24

ENTHUSIASM

Enthusiasm is a state of mind that inspires and arouses one to put action into the task at hand. It does more than this-- it is contagious, and vitally affects not only the enthusiast, but all with whom he comes in contact.

Enthusiasm is not merely a figure of speech; it is a vital force that you can harness and use with profit. Without it, you would resemble an electric battery without electricity.

Enthusiasm is the vital force with which you recharge your body and develop a dynamic personality. Some people are blessed with natural enthusiasm, while others must acquire it.

Happiness is the final object of all human effort, is a state of mind that can be maintained only through the hope of future achievement. Happiness lies always in the future and never in the past. The happy person is the one who dreams of heights of achievement that are yet unattained. The home you intend to own, the money you intend to earn and place in the bank, the trip you intend to take when you can afford it, the position in life you intend to fill when you have prepared yourself, and the preparation, itself--these are the things that produce happiness. Likewise, these are the materials out of which your definite chief aim is formed; these are the things over which you become enthusiastic, no matter what your present station in life may be.
