Setting Intentions for Enthusiastic Engagements with Sonny Melendrez

Enthusiasm is not merely a byproduct of good circumstances, but rather a mindset we create. Hence, the crucial role of intentionality. Intentionally choosing enthusiasm— even when mundane things seem to put you on autopilot or when circumstances are challenging— shifts our focus from what’s wrong to what’s possible. But how can we consciously cultivate this attitude? 

This week, we welcome Sonny Melendrez, a legendary TV and radio personality, author, and motivational speaker. Listen in as Sonny shares life lessons about spreading positivity from his decades-long career in media and his journey to becoming a sought-after keynote speaker. Daniel and Sonny also discuss the 3 pillars of cultivating intentional enthusiasm, the power of a smile, the importance of vision and gratitude, and ultimately how to develop a heart for helping others with an optimistic mindset.

“We are never happier than when we are in the service of others.” —Sonny Melendrez
