Successful people typically possess a deep passion for the activities in which they engage. The great basketball coach John Wooden said: “Your energy, drive and dedication will stimulate and greatly inspire others.”
But, be careful; enthusiasm alone doesn’t carry the day.
Consider the following two dimensions: 1) Laid Back versus Enthusiastic; and 2) Skeptical versus Gullible. The enthusiastic but gullible person typically has problems getting things done. The laid back and skeptical guy is usually the wet blanket, not the achiever.
