What does Business Excitement achieve?
Timothy Ferris says in the Four Hour Work Week that Excitement is important because it moves us to action like nothing else. It is what allows for momentum to build. It gives us that amazing feeling of happiness and simultaneous fulfillment.
Paul Hudson says, “Learn to enjoy the simpler things in life. It follows you will never run out of exciting things to do. Oppositely, if you focus only on the big things — like a promotion or skydiving or an engagement — subsequently you will run out of things to stimulate you.” http://elitedaily.com/life/hungry-for-excitement/.
We need to know how personally we can place ourselves in an excited state; like going for a cup of coffee with a friend, taking a walk in the park on a spring day, a birthday party celebrated with friends and so on. Simple things therefore to help maintain living excitement.
The psychology of excitement
Neil Patel says, “understanding psychology is a crucial part of being a successful marketer. Powerful advances in content marketing don’t come from “hacks,” “tricks,” or “techniques”. They come from science-backed psychology”.
Excitement begins in the brain just like any other emotion. Emotions, it follows, have strong physiological responses.
Many people are familiar with the experience of stomach sensations (“butterflies in the stomach”), trembling, weakness, and sweaty palms in response to a state of fear or excitement. These are the body’s complex responses to a mental condition.
When the body is excited, it provides the perfect conditions for marketing to have its effect. Excitement of any kind is a state of arousal. Arousal means that the heart rate increases, the sympathetic nervous system increases activity, and the brain begins to signal the increased production of hormones.
When a person is excited, their emotions become more powerful and can affect their decision-making abilities. Excited people are more likely to make a decision — any decision (even a bad one). Excitement leads to impulsivity.
Excitement should be part of the business journey. If business vision is strong enough excitement will spread to both associates and customers. Business momentum will build.Small activities can help maintain the excitement. Ultimately the business will be rewarded.
