Intentional Enthusiasm: How to accelerate personal greatness A suggested TED talk by Sonny Melendrez
"If you want to be enthusiastic, act enthusiastic” Dale Carnegie
Sonny Melendrez has approached life with great enthusiasm. But it wasn’t until recently that he discovered a dynamic that can actually allow you to hasten your goals, visions and results. He calls it Intentional Enthusiasm and is based on 3 things.
Belief – believe you can do it
Visualise – Have a clear vision of what you want to achieve
Gratitude – “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” Eckhart Tolle
Science tells us that the brain experiences a kind of euphoria when it is in the enthusiastic state. A single thought, stoked by enthusiasm, can cause the brain to release the “happy chemicals” of dopamine, serotonin, endorphin and oxytocin. What if you could turn that condition on, like the flick of a switch, intentionally? Sonny Melendrez offers personal and historical proof of this phenomenon, along with the latest findings that explain how enthusiasm sets “wheels in motion” toward a positive desired result.
Through storytelling, Sonny Melendrez shares common key behaviours that life-long “enthusiasts” use to their distinct advantage.
