As an enthusiast, you seek variety in life. You have a spontaneous nature and a love for adventure and excitement, pursuing new goals with optimism. You go through life like a kid in a candy shop, excitedly collecting new ideas, experiences, and opportunities.
As a leader, you are forward-thinking, planning for the future and always looking for ways to improve and set new goals. You are an asset in collaborative efforts because your quick-thinking mind powers through brainstorming, quickly coming up with exciting ideas and new possibilities. You want to hear input from everyone because you love having options, so you inspire a great atmosphere for innovation.
You want life to be exciting, and you keep things interesting. You cheer on the people around you, celebrating milestones and lifting spirits with your contagious energy and optimism. If there is greener grass, you don’t hesitate to climb the fence and experience it for yourself.
You know that life is all about variety and new experiences. You do not allow roadblocks to get in your way and your flexibility allows you to overcome them. You prefer to think as you go, adapting to new circumstances quickly and enjoying the challenges they present. You believe that better things are out there, and you are intent on finding them.
You fear missing out, being bored, and lack of freedom. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of optimistic vs unrealistic, excitably spontaneous vs recklessly impulsive, or driven vs restless?
