Enthusiasm and optimism are infectious, so spread them. Isn’t it mind boggling to think that you can cheer others up by simply being happy yourself? All it takes is one smile, one encouraging word, one motivational speech to change the attitude of the entire group. As a leader, your employees or team members look up to you for guidance and they play off of your attitude. If you show people a negative, pessimistic attitude, they will have the same outlook on the situation. If they see their leader inspiring others, speaking encouragingly to other and staying positive even through hard times, they will learn to do the same. Being able to show enthusiasm and optimism is an integral ingredient to becoming an Outlier.
