This edition of The Love Post is part of a series. We’ll be reviewing Napoleon Hill‘s 17 Principles of Success and how they relate to creating a life that you absolutely Love.

"Turn thoughts into actions.

Make a daily habit of displaying your burning desires as it radiates outwards and affects everyone around you. Enthusiasm is the instrument by which adversities and temporary defeats are changed into action and accomplishment." ~Napoleon Hill

Whatever You’re Doing, Do It with Enthusiasm

The path to success is just that. A path. A journey.

Success and the fulfillment of Love, joy and happiness happens in taking every step with the confidence and conviction that you are heading in the right direction.

Having enthusiasm helps you let go of the past and the future and be at peace with exactly how things are.

Achieving greatness isn’t something that you can plan to do in the future. It’s all about learning to BE great NOW!
And what does being great feel like?

It feels like being fully alive in the moment, conscious and excited to completely take in the experiences and opportunities that are constantly emerging.

Being great means feeling great.

Think about the most enthusiastic person you know.

They probably have terrific posture, smile easily, laugh often and attract attention wherever they go.

It doesn’t matter if your solving world hunger or doing the dishes, take an active interest in doing what you’re doing.

It’s important to embrace your power by simply being present and engaged.

Can You Feel Love’s Enthusiasm?

When you get excited about going after your dreams, can you feel that Love bubble up from within you?

When you start believing that you can actually do what you’ve always wanted to do, do you feel like jumping up and doing a little dance?

Love is so excited that you exist. And She’s even more excited about you really digging in and being your best self.

When you start to take consistent action to accomplish your top priority goals, Love gives you more energy to put towards the effort.

And as Napoleon says, when temporary defeats arise, the enthusiasm you’ve got sees you through.

What used to feel like a major setback is now just a hop, skip and a jump back to where you were aiming at.

Nothing stands in your way because you understand that it’s all just part of the amazing adventure of life.

Love is the most enthusiastic partner you’ll find. She’ll stick with you no matter how tricky the terrain.

And with enthusiasm, you become the version of you that lives an extraordinary life.
