“Where does he get his energy?”
“I just don’t have the energy for it”
“It’s not worth the hassle”
Now, “ trouble” and “hassle”, are two words we hear a lot of today, particularly in relation to things and stuff we need to get done.
Trouble and hassle use energy. They demand energy. You need Physical energy, Mental energy, Emotional energy and Spiritual energy.
The energies are inter-dependent. We can be fired up with an idea. We can be ignited by a feeling. We can be consumed by a belief.
But if we don’t have the physical energy to act on what's needed, the fire, the ignition, and the consuming drive count for nothing.
Rule one; source your physical energy.
We need to know what to do, how to do it, and then, as my dear wife once told me about a project I had in mind, we need to shut up and do it.
We source our energy from within. We make sure that we have an adequate amount of nutrients, water, and oxygen in our bodies. We make sure we exercise our limbs and our internal environment. And we commit to an adequate amount of rest.
That will do for a start. When we observe these simple principles they affect our bodies, our minds, and how we feel with an impact that improves our lives, sometimes, beyond recognition.
Simple means. Ordinary powers. Applied with extraordinary consistency.
That's where a system comes in. Just like running a business, doing a job, writing a book, practising a sport, learning a course, organising a life.
Over the next few weeks, we'll be reviewing the essentials for creating energy...from within, what the energies are, how they can be developed, how to apply them in daily life.
