Age is a relative thing. Some people seem to get old way before their time. Others defy their years, appearing to be eternal. Observations confirm that their agelessness is characterized by an enthusiastic, joyful attitude towards living that is completely infectious…in a good way! Their energy captures our attention in a way that makes us all all want to catch the same vibe.

Choosing an enthusiastic attitude, regardless of our current circumstances, is the only way I know of to improve any situation.

It works like this: Be purposeful. There’s a reason you’re here and it doesn’t have to be a grandiose reason. Remember: You are a one-of-a-kind and that alone gives your existence a special worth if you find yourself struggling with the concept of purpose. • Stop taking yourself so seriously. Getting infectiously enthusiastic means you’re open to act without worrying about what everyone is going to think. Let your personal brand of eccentricity shine. • Make a list of actions you can take without expecting definitive results. Just commit to doing what’s on your list, over and over, checking off each point, and see what happens.  • We all have limitations in some form or another — but they can be stretched. Start getting a bit more flexible in how you see things…and that includes how we see others and their limitations, as well. • Listen to your inner thoughts. Your inner script may need editing. To edit, firmly state: “I delete that negative thought right now.” Then, hit Shift with: “I embrace life with enthusiasm daily.” • Find others who are enthusiastic about their journey. Cheer them during their low energy days and directly ask them to do the same for you if your enthusiasm seems to be waning. • Choose to literally feed your enthusiasm. Excessive sugar, alcohol, drugs and caffeine will drain energy either in the moment or in the hours afterwards. Eat well and stay hydrated.

By following these steps, you can fortify your ageless energy and enthusiasm towards living. No matter what we must cope with, life becomes easier when we develop an enthusiastic ageless attitude that says: “It is my responsibility to become all that I can be and to enthusiastically share this with the World.”
