Yes, sometimes you might look a little bit silly. However, it's much better to be laughed at for being enthusiastic than to be pitied and avoided for being dull.
Enthusiasm keeps you young, energizes your days, and attracts positive people to your efforts. Enthusiasm keeps you focused on moving forward, even when there are obstacles and distractions working against you.
To be enthusiastic, you must do what you truly care about, and genuinely care about what you're doing. To be enthusiastic, be honest with yourself about what your passions are, and follow those passions without holding back.
Feel how good it feels to let enthusiasm freely flow. Feel how powerful it is when your actions are continually energized by your enthusiasm.
Find those things about which you can be authentically enthusiastic. And then, let the power of your enthusiasm flow.
