Have you noticed that? People get nervous when you get excited! Now imagine when you get SEVERAL excited people together – OTHER PEOPLE FREAK OUT!
Why? Because, most of the time, they don’t know what it is to be excited about anything and think that you must be “on” something or just plain NUTZ! It’s really rather funny (and yeah, I know I misspelled “nutz”) when you think about it.
So, they don’t know – or remember – what it is to get excited and ALSO they have nothing to get excited about and don’t trust others that do. What? Let me explain.
We’ve all heard the idea that people are afraid of what they don’t understand or that people are afraid of the unknown. Many times, these people have lost their ABILITY to become excited about ANYTHING in life and when they see others get excited about something they are afraid because they just CANNOT understand what there is to get excited about! And, on top of that, since they can’t seem to get excited about anything they are DOUBLY AFRAID because that kind of excitement and enthusiasm is unknown – FOREIGN – to their very thought process.
You see them every day. And they see you!
Maybe this describes you. Perhaps you are wary of ANYONE that gets excited about ANYTHING. Friend, it’s time for you to recapture the excitement of your youth when you got excited over just about everything!
You see, there are some things WORTH getting excited about and there are some things that you just CAN’T HELP but get excited about!
Let go – let loose – GET EXCITED once again.
And, remember, whatever you do, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
