Image of the Enthusiasm Teacher PackEnthusiasm is “putting my whole heart into what I do.” Whatever the task, no matter how big or small, it will always turn out better if you put your whole heart into it!

Another great thing about enthusiasm is—it's contagious! Your "spark" of energy and excitement can ignite others to live their lives with enthusiasm.
