The Power of Enthusiasm

“WAY TO GO! Wow! That’s awesome!”

When was the last time someone said something like that to you?

Sallie, one of our Vibrancy Signature Coaches, was just telling us how she says this kind of thing to her 4 year old grandson, Alexander, two or more times an hour…accompanied by a thumbs-up or applause.

I used to get and give “Woo-hoos” every day, when I was training for the Olympics in diving. Throughout practice all the divers would whistle and cheer for each others’ great dives. We fed on all the enthusiasm and it kept us motivated to do our best and try to be the next one to earn some high-fives.

So WHERE IS THAT in our everyday adult lives??!

How many times a day do you get woo-hoo’d? Can you even remember the last time someone gave you a shot of enthusiasm, patted you on the back and told you how amazing you were and what a fantastic thing you’d just done?

Remember Miss Manners and all the rules she laid down about how to conduct ourselves in society? Wouldn’t it have been great if she’d decreed that it’s impolite NOT to fist-pump and thump someone on the back with a “Way to go!” whenever they did something well?

Can’t you just see it?…..You give a customer excellent service and afterward, when your peers or your boss don’t applaud you, you’d think, ‘Well, that was rude. You didn’t jump up and down about how awesomely I handled that customer. Hurrumph.’

But no, it’s not considered rude. It’s ‘normal’! You do what’s expected of you and people only notice when there’s a mistake. That’s not much of a motivation to do things better, much less enjoy the process.



Should high-fiving enthusiasm be reserved only
for small kids and sporting events? No Way!


If the Power of Enthusiasm has been dampened down in your world, then here’s some of the effects you’re possibly feeling:

  • You drag yourself through your day with no juice coming from anywhere or anybody to make you feel like what you’re doing is worthwhile.
  • You contribute to the Starbuck’s fortune with all the espressos you buy just to get you through your week because your energy reserves are on empty.
  • You tank up on junk food to numb your melancholy.
  • You lose friendships because you’re so absorbed in your own misery and lack of vitality that you just aren’t much fun to be around.
  • You feel old, dull, and critical of anyone else that has the audacity to get excited about ‘inconsequential’ and ‘childish’ things.

But imagine what it would be like if you were giving and
receiving lots of woo-hoos every day?


Doesn’t reading that last statement just perk up your energy right way? Your Blue Green cells are probably getting pumped up just thinking about being showered with accolades on a daily basis rather than criticisms (or even just plain neutrality).

You might:

  • Feel more loved and appreciated….like you’re not out on some island all by yourself, but that what you do is noticed and recognized by others around you.
  • Engage with people and with your life more deeply, realizing that there’s lots to get excited about now that it isn’t ‘illegal’ to express it.
  • Begin to wake up others around you with your own ecstatic outbursts, expressive comments, and all that vitality you start letting out of your bag.
  • Make more friends by recognizing their accomplishments and motivating them to put their best foot forward!
  • Start craving healthy nutritious food, because you just feel like keeping that good vibe going throughout your whole body.

How about you? Are you ready to get on the Blue Green train to bringing more enthusiasm into your life?

2 ways to wake up your Blue Green Power of Enthusiasm:

“I’m enthusiastic!”

#2: Take 7 – 21 drops of Enthusiasm Vibrancy Essence daily. This remedy will align you with the energetic frequency of Enthusiasm, and help you break out and EXPRESS yourself!

Guess what! You really don’t have to grow up!
It’s A-Okay to keep your excited
kid self alive no matter how hold you are!


“Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years…
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.”

~ Samuel Ullman

Woo-Hoo to you!!
