I also know this very very well. My suggestion is: start running workshops on getting exited for people who lack exitement in their life and get rich. wouldn't that be exiting?!
I think it's funny so many people are bored most of the time, not enough energy to make the coffe and we jump up and down like coffe beans and think of how to stop that...
It's all relative you see...exitement is a lovely thing: it's just energy!
Why not use it creatively, i.e to go run around the block or do some push ups, that way you get fit at the same time as happy!!
My CEO asked the other day: what is going on with you? i saw you skipping down the street. indeed I had a skip at 11am. But you see, I get back feeling great and make brilliant and convincing sales call. Now that's efficient. Any course on motivation would have cost them thousands!!
So my point is: it might be nice to see that you are a fantastic and energetic person and that energy loves to be nurtured. With that it will centre itself more easily, too.
Meditation is great by the way- I have done a fair bit and Yoga- I lived in a Yoga Ashram in NY for a while.
You don't have to meditate to be balanced but it does teach you so much ....
You might prefer dancing or spinning or whatever...
So the tip from me is: celebrate yourself, do something fun and THEN get back to the opportunity.
Sing the song: I am so exited- I just can't hide it from Footloose was it?
Love from Evelyne
