Enthusiasm verses excitement; this chapter makes the distinction between them and helps you discover the energy of inspiration.
Enthusiasm is not to be confused with excitement.
Right off the top, let’s set the record straight.
Excitement is an outward display of energy which can, when not inherently present, be practiced, developed and acted out. It is a quality often talked about – in the sales field, for instance – as a necessary ingredient to a successful career.
Many believe that:“You must be excited about your product or service.”
If you don’t have this excitement, you are led to believe you must develop it, practice it, and then carry it withy you everywhere you go.
Excitement is usually associated with belief and anticipation. It is often seen as a high energy level which results in an outward action.
Enthusiasm, on the other hand, comes from knowing.
The outward expression of energy varies considerable from excitement. Excitement is a bright strobe light, flashing off and on.
Enthusiasm is a 1000-watt bulb; always on, sometimes softened by a dimmer switch, but never off.
