Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm is one of the Principles associated with the Master Key of Success outlined by Napoleon Hill, the author of "Think and Grow Rich".

Being enthusiastic may be likened to the steam in the boiler which when controlled and turned on, starts the wheels of machinery into action.

It has been said that "Knowledge is Power", but that is only a half truth, because knowledge becomes power only when it is put into action for the attainment of a definite objective.

Why Being Enthusiastic is Powerful

Every brain is both a broadcasting station and a receiving station, which sends out thought vibrations and picks up on the thought vibrations sent out by other people.

When you are enthusiastic, you step up the vibrations of thoughts which go out from your brain so they will reach and affect other people more quickly.

This technique is used by master salesmen to condition the minds of their prospective buyers before they even meet and talk to them. Being enthusiastic is very contagious.

2. When you shake their hand, take a firm grip and give it a quick firm squeeze at the end of each word you state in your greeting.

3. Begin the conversation with a subject that the other person is interested in.

4. Follow through by eagerly asking questions which will keep the attention focused upon the other person. Then when you are ready to have the other person hear what you have to say, then he will be prepared to listen attentively.
