What is excitement? Is it only for kids? Does everybody enjoys the feeling of excitement?
Remember when we were still in school? It was the happiest moments in our lives, we are full of joy and thrill, and we look forward to the years to come. We visualize the things that are bound to come to our lives after graduation. When we graduate, we have high hopes and big dreams that a beautiful life will come to us. As we grow old, we start to dilapidate, it is not that we lose our dreams; we simply become “realistic”. We tend to lower down what we want because we start to lose hope when we realize that we are not getting anywhere. We lose happiness and joy , and the drive to strive harder. Why? Because we simply lose our excitement.
Excitement is an essential part of our life, and it is required to live our life fruitfully and enjoyable. Excitement gives us the overwhelming happiness, pleasure and success. The feeling of being alive and being full of life is a result of being excited all the time. It has been said that if you want to be happy, you have to do good, if you want to be happy then you have to be successful. But according to the book I’ve read, psycho-cybernetics, it should be the other way around. You have to be happy first before you can do good things, and you have to be happy before you can be successful. And I agree.
But what drives excitement? If you notice, excitement is something that comes from what we are looking forward to, may it be a person, or an occasion, etc. The craze or the obsession of what you want to have or happen, or simply what you want to do that drives your excitement. In simple way of saying it, passion drives our excitement. If we are passionate of something that we do because we want a particular result, we tend to become excited about it and, hence, the joy and happiness.
We must be excited every day, before we sleep and after waking up. We have to be thankful every day because a new day brings new hope in our lives. We should be giggling and shaking with enthusiasm, just like when urinating, we shake uncontrollably (I’m not sure if that also happens to women hehe). The excitement should flow from us towards the things that what we do and the things we believe in. I call it, the excitement urination.
