The longer I live the more certain I am that enthusiasm is the most important of all traits or qualifications. The difference in actual skill and ability and intelligence between the man who succeeds and the man who fails usually is not very great. But if there are two men starting out with equal ability and intelligence, physical strength and the other important qualifications, the man who is enthusiastic is the one who is going to come in first. And often a man with second-rate ability will outstrip a very capable man is he has enthusiasm and the first-rater hasn’t.
