I’m still very new to my sales job, and I’ve learned a lot. One piece of advice I’ve been given is that I may know what I am selling and believe in the product, but I need to get more excited about it. I need to be able to put my energy into it and really show how amazing the product is.
Getting excited is key in sales, because how can you get someone else excited if you aren’t already excited yourself?
Getting excited about what you are doing isn’t just important for sales type jobs. Regardless of what you plan on doing, the more you can get excited about it and put your top energy into it the better off you will be.
No matter what you do or where you go, here are 7 reasons to be more excited about life.
1. It Helps You Follow Through
We all know that if you want to be successful at something you have to put energy into it. Life requires work, and most people simply put in just as much work as they need to in order to get by. Once that first minimum threshold is met, however, they tend to quit and do something to escape their work.
The reason people like to do the minimum amount of work possible is because they don’t get excited about it. They don’t enjoy the work and it is not challenging enough for them.
When you find something that you are truly passionate about it becomes a lot easier to put in longer hours and to work harder. In fact most of the time you don’t even realize how much you have been working on a project that excites you simply because, it excites you.
It is true what they say, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”
2. It Helps You Convince Other People
Regardless of what you plan on doing or where you plan on going you need to be able to convince other people to do things or to help you along the way. If you are starting a new business, you need to be able to convince others that the service or product you are providing is worth the expense.
Not only that, you want them to be excited about it, you want them to want it so badly that they couldn’t possible live without it. This is where excitement comes along. If you want other people to be excited about your opportunity you have to be so excited about it that others will jump at the opportunity.
Even if you aren’t in sales or thinking about starting your own business you need to be able to sway others to your side. Try going into a job interview without any pep in your step and you’ll see that your attitude matters.
Get excited about life and get others excited for you, after all there is some truth to that statement, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Get excited and help others be excited about you.
3. It Makes Life More Enjoyable
Learning to become excited about the little things in life really does make life much more enjoyable. Falling in love with life means that you are always looking at the positives and looking for opportunities in every area.
Think about how wonderful things were when you were a kid, everything made you excited and made you want to explore the world outside. The little things in life became much more enjoyable and everything was a miracle.
Once you grow older that feeling of constant excitement tends to die down a little, but it doesn’t mean you have to stop getting excited about life. With so much to learn and so much good in the world, there is always new stuff for people to get excited about.
4. It Helps You See The Positive
Learning how to be positive and how to be excited about life is kind of like 2 sides of the same coin. One compliments the other. When you focus on the positives and the abundances in life it is a lot easier to get excited about them.
Focus on what is exciting and what will help you improve yourself or follow your passion and you will be amazed at what will happen.
5. It Makes You Seek Out Opportunities
One of the reasons people who are optimistic and simply excited about life do so well is because they seek out new opportunities. The more you approach life with a curious attitude and the more you look for opportunities the more you will find those opportunities.
Look for the negatives and you will find them, but they won’t help you to get anywhere in life. The world is full of negative people blaming others for own circumstances, focus on the positives and believe that the world is your play thing and you won’t have to worry about never taking the chances you want to take or trying the things you want to try.
6. It Can Help You Stay Healthy
Being excited about life can help you to stay healthy. We all know that our attitude affects our health. When we are stressed out our bodies attack themselves and it accelerates aging. When we laugh and enjoy life it causes out body to fix itself.
It is well known that positive emotions and focusing on the good around you can drastically improve your health. Why not focus on the positives when it helps you to live longer, feel better, and enjoy your life?
7. You Only Life Once
Life is short. You will never be here again, so wouldn’t you want to spend your time being positive about life and excited about every opportunity? I know I would.
Learning how to be excited about life and focusing on the positives isn’t exactly something you can teach. It’s something you have to learn and something you have to reinforce. But once you break through the barrier and live life with a passion, it becomes much better and comes with more opportunities.
