Replace Fear With Intense Courage By Christine Corelli
Dynamic Keynote Speaker & Author 

Each and every day, I talk with executives, managers and business professionals who tell me how bad business is, and/or how tough their job is. While there are some who tell me business is picking up or that business is great, the majority of us are experiencing some tough realities these days. And the future remains uncertain.

This holds especially true for those who are worried about losing their job or those who have lost theirs months ago and are still without employment.

Today, we are all faced with challenges and each of us responds differently. Some people buckle under the pressure while others strive on. Some get stronger, while others give up. Some people learn while others point their finger elsewhere as the cause of their misfortune. Some people take responsibility for their future while others see themselves as victims. Some people whine while others get on with it. Some people keep making cold calls and work harder at developing strong business relationships while others say, "What's the sense of calling? No one's ordering?"

We all have it tough these days, but you cannot lose your enthusiasm for your job and your life. Nor can you lose courage.

To my delight, I received a multitude of requests to publish. (It's gratifying to know one's work is appreciated.) I'm sending it to you today just in case you haven't read it, or you need little refresher.


Who Stole Your Enthusiasm?

No. That is not a rhetorical question, not really. But you may be one of many people who are having difficulty in experiencing any enthusiasm lately. This is quite understandable, and is directly related to the trials of living and working in today's high-pressure working environment and challenging economic situation.

Chrysler said it right.
With far too many people worried about their future and seeing the glass as half-empty, not half-full, it's no wonder so few are enthusiastic about anything. What to do? You cannot always control what happens around you, but you can learn from the wise. I believe Walter Chrysler said it best: "The real secret of success is enthusiasm. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is the bottom of all progress....
