w o r d t o t h e w i s e Enthusiasm is contagious! The more interesting you are, the more desirable and wanted you become. Some people instantly make us feel important. Some people instantly make us feel special. Some people light up a room just by walking in. We can’t always define it, but some people tend to draw attention all the time without even trying. If you want to become successful, you need to be that person. First of, to be interesting and spark attention you need to have something going on for you in life. You need to have passion and be excited and enthusiastic about it. Enthusiasm is contagious! While working on a project related to relationship between men and women, I have noticed that the most gorgeous girls would not have a second date if they had nothing going on for them. They appealed simply boring. And on the other had, not so attractive girls that were passionate and had a zest for life were most wanted by men. Same rule applies in success. Insert your passion into everything. Embed your passion into the pavement of your daily encounters. You will engage, excite and inspire people because that’s what passion does. Embed your passion into the pavement that leads the way. “Get into the habit of telling people what you love or appreciate about them” Limited references create a limited life... Expand your references. In the book Awaken the Giant within, Tony Robbins said, “Limited references create a limited life. If you want to expand your life, you must expand your references by pursuing ideas and experiences that wouldn’t be a part of your life if you didn’t consciously seek them out.” 6 W O R L D C L A S S M AG A Z I N E S .
