Transfer Your Enthusiasm

by | Sep 18, 2020

Did you know that worship is a lot like sales?

Now…hear me out.

I am not talking about anything you associate with the words:

  • Sleezy
  • Slimy
  • Forceful
  • Hassleling
  • Pushy
  • ETC.

That’s the wrong definition of sales…

When the late Zig Ziglar would conduct sales trainings, he’d often say something roughly like this:

Selling is nothing more than the transfer of enthusiasm

Enthusiasm. That’s all? Really?


As you and the rest of the worship team work to create the worship experience and inspire those you serve each week, you must remember that a huge part of your job is transferring enthusiasm.

There are some SUPER practical ways to do this…

  1. Smile.
  2. Keep your head up.
  3. Don’t space out.
  4. Be present.
  5. Show emotion.
  6. Sing along.
  7. Oh yeah, smile.

You may be surprised at how different you feel after a few weeks of doing nothing more than the above.

Maybe we’ll write something on one or more of those postures in the coming days. I realize some of them may be a little hard or a little confusing.

But if you can really get them down, you will be AMAZED at the difference in makes—both in you and those around you.

By the way, right now’s a great time to get in our Worship By Numbers program that helps musicians and worship leaders like Y.O.U. become a more well-rounded musician. Here’s the link to try it out FREE today:
