"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality.

Add enthusiasm into what you do today and see what happens. Take the advice of philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), enthusiasm = greatness.

From the Greek adjective "enthous," which means, "possessed or inspired by God," enthusiasm means living life with passion and zeal. Showing eager interest, speaking with honest fervor. Putting yourself, who you are out there in all your rich colors of beauty.
