I love this quote on leadership.
“Success is the ability to go from one failure to the next without losing your enthusiasm.”
Enthusiasm (ἐνθουσιασμός) root – en-theos = in God. An enthusiast is a person inspired by god. *see: Biblical inspiration – (inspiration Greek – θεοπνευστος – Theopneustos = literally God breathed) When the early Christians would see someone convert to Christianity there was this overwhelming joy that followed the gift of Salvation but they had a problem there was no word to describe this feeling so they combined the two words (in God) creating the word (entheos) from which we get the English word Enthusiasm.
Long term leadership requires lots of “en-theos”!
