Hi Team...

Last week I came across a term:


Coach, isn't that a bit of an oxymoron?

Absolutely it is.

It is similar to pressing the gas and the brake at the same time.

Ultimately, you go nowhere. 

And we can not have that. 

What is negative-enthusiasm?

It is being extremely excited and passionate about your dream, your vision, and your objectives.. but, as the same time, you have extreme doubt. You do not truly trust what you are doing...

You do not fully trust at your core that what you are doing is going to work or working...

That is negative-enthusiasm...

Going at things with a positive exterior, but a negative interior and core....

You can see how this can be counterproductive, right?

It is a state that is completely unproductive and I caution you to get out of it, if you are in it, FAST!

The energy drain and the frustration that comes with it is truly costly and exhausting...

Coach, what if I am somebody that has this trait?

I just don't trust myself at the deepest levels....

Listen to me..

YOU must internally validate yourself by talking to yourself and affirming how great you are each day....

Use I-AM statements to affirm who you are...



These are two examples...

But ultimately, when you cue your mindset for success, and most importantly rebuild how you see yourself, you will build strength over time and a positive vision of yourself over time....

When you get strong, your vision gets stronger, and ultimately the negative part of "negative-enthusiasm" drops off in exchange for positive.. leading you to being in a state of POSITIVE- ENTHUSIASM...

Positive-Enthusiasm wins...

You must move towards living in a state of positive-enthusiasm....

Make it happen...

Let's go!
