It is very important to be enthusiastic in life. If you do possess the enthusiasm or the passion that is much needed to attain a goal, the truth is the way will become much easier. Let us first try and understand, what is enthusiasm?
Enthusiasm refers to the verve that fills your heart when you wish to achieve something that you really want. Enthusiasm is the passion with which you work when you work towards achieving something that you really want. Enthusiasm is the gaiety that fills your heart when you dream of things you wish to achieve. Enthusiasm is the light that reaches your eye when you talk of your goal. Enthusiasm is the energy that fills your heart when you work towards achieving your dreams.
The fact is that if you are not enthusiastic enough, you are going to have big problems in achieving your target. If you do not feel the enthusiasm towards what you wish to achieve, then you need to think all over again. If you are pursuing something that truly want in life, you will surely have your heart in it and all your enthusiasm too. If you lack the enthusiasm, it only means somewhere, something is wrong and you need to correct it.
Sometimes, people lack enthusiasm and it is not because they are pursuing something that they do not want. There are times when situations get pushy, the going gets tough and everything seems impossible. It is in times like these that people start to lose enthusiasm and fall weak in front of the scourges of time. As an M.B.A aspirant, you will face these situations. There will be moments when everything that you do will seem hopeless and useless. There will be times when your enthusiasm will break and when you will feel the need to quit everything. It is in times like these that one needs to understand the mantra of building enthusiasm.
It is not so difficult to build enthusiasm. If you know the right things to do, you will be able to build up the enthusiasm all over again. Here are few things that will help you stay enthusiastic when you are losing hope.
1.Realize what you have: The easiest way to get enthusiastic is to learn to appreciate what you have. God has given you the opportunities that someone, somewhere else wanted to have but never had. Since you have them, it is better that you appreciate them and make the best use of them. While preparing for M.B.A, if at some point you start losing the ground, it is best that you look back and count the opportunities that you have been given, the facilities that you have been provided with and the support that you are getting from people. Appreciating what you have really helps.
2.Be positive: Staying positive will help too. The truth is that a person does not get successful in every endeavor that he makes. At times, he is bound to fail. However, failures should not be counted as the last step. They should be taken as the steps to success. Every time you fail, pull your socks up, made your mind even more firm and go after what you want with all the enthusiasm that you have. The taste of success is tripled after a failure. So, believe in yourself. Remind yourself of the amazing things that lie ahead of you and chase them. If you learn to be positive, being enthusiastic will easily come to you.
3.Learn to be patient: The enthusiasm in you die only when you make decisions impulsively. Being patient always helps because it gives you a chance to analyze the mistakes that you made and work on them all over again. If you are a person who acts impulsively, you will never be able to realize your mistakes and correct them. So, the next time you feel that you are losing your enthusiasm, make sure that you stop for a moment, sit down and think deeply of the mistakes that you have been making. If you realize your mistakes, you will obviously and most naturally get the enthusiasm to correct your mistakes and rediscover your dreams.
Life is not about falling down and never getting up. It is about falling down, pulling yourself up and touching the stars next. Even if things do not seem to be going right and your enthusiasm may be breaking, do not lose hope.
Close your eyes and think again about all the dreams that you had once cherished and about all the goals that you had once targeted. On its own, your heart will find the enthusiasm and the verve to chase the dreams you had always seen.
