BE ENTHUSIASTIC... PEOPLE WILL SIMPLY CLUSTER AROUND YOU.

“Be enthusiastic…


People will simply cluster around you.


Enthusiasm is that mysterious force in your,


Which can turn everything you touch – gold,


Everything you see – beautiful,


Every word you whisper lively and powerful.


It is not only contagious,


But it, also, spreads like wild fire in a forest.


Everything and everyone around you gets caught 


In this wild fire of enthusiasm.”




Enthusiasm is the glow of your personality… It is your zest for life… your youthfulness… your gung-ho spirit!

When you love life, when you love people… when you love challenges and adventures, you are charged with enthusiasm… It comes from your innate sense of wonder… your childlike curiosity to learn new things, discover new vistas… make new friends, and expand your area of influence… It comes from your desire to reach out to more and more people… make impact, a difference in other people’s lives… Yes, when you are driven by such curiosity and zest, such optimism and buoyant spirit… you are blessed with enthusiasm…

Only enthusiasm can inspire… charge you and charge others…

Only when you are enthusiastic can you convince yourself about your own dreams and aspirations…

Only when you are enthusiastic can you convince others to join you, support you and ally with you along your path of success…

Enthusiasm is not only the glow of your personality, it is the ‘glue’, too… It is magnetic… It attracts and binds people around you… It holds them together, around you – the leader.

There is that magical something – that alchemy – concealed in your enthusiasm… Yes, it is the magic potion that can turn everything you touch – gold… everything you see – beautiful… It can pack life and power in every word you whisper…

True, without enthusiasm, you are lifeless, dead!

Dear, in this world, if you desire to succeed, you need to attract and hold people around you… And, what else, except your contagious enthusiasm, can do it for you? Like the wild fire in a forest, your enthusiasm can spread and engulf everyone around you…

Bring purpose in your life… be passionate about it… be possessed!

You can’t be enthusiastic and lonely, at the same time…

You can’t be enthusiastic and cynical about life, at the same time…

With your enthusiasm, you light-up this world… make it a better place to live!

“Gung-ho!”

P.S.:

In the early 80’s, as a stranger and a struggling young-man in this big city of Mumbai (then Bombay), I was filled with self-doubts and fears. My self-confidence level was at its lowest pit, and I was gripped with anxiety about my future. It was during these harrowing times, I had found on the roadside an old copy of Dr. Napoleon Hill’s inspirational classic – ‘Think & Grow Rich’… 

My life was destined to change, immediately!

I have been so influenced by Dr. Napoleon Hill’s ‘Success philosophy’ - particularly his famous line: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” - that it would be impossible for me to shed off this influence all my life.

So, as a young-teacher in his twenties, when I had scribbled those passages in the little booklet ‘THE DAWN’, they loudly – and proudly - echoed the core tenets of Dr. Hill’s life-lessons. What he had assimilated from the lives of scores of successful people and passed on to us, I was now trying to do, in my own way, to my students…

With my deepest humility and reverence, I dedicate this book ‘THE ECHOES OF THE DAWN’ - to the one who made me ‘Stand up’ in life…Dr. Napoleon Hill.
