Turn Up The Volume

Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Enthusiasm is contagious. It's that child like quality of seeing the light and fun in the simplest of things. And when we allow ourselves to tap into it our whole being changes. People want what we have. 
The question is how do we do that? How do we bring more of that joy and excitement into our work? 
I think it starts with grounding ourselves. For some that might be meditation. For others movement. Or if you are me a little of both. Breathe and visual what your end result is going to look like. Smile. Remember why you do what you do. Be grateful. Maybe turn up the music to your favorite song, a little Lady Gaga  always does it for me. Sing and dance your heart back to the place where you can feel and trust in the process. And remember to smile. The simple act of curling up your lips changes your energy from flat towards enthusiasm. 
Let yourself be you. You are the drug the world wants to see and if you allow yourself you can call you up on demand. 
If you don't believe me, turn up the volume right now and take a little dance break. It really works.
