What’s the most important resource of your life?
Here’s a question. What’s that one thing old people crave? Is it more money, more time or is it more ‘energy?” Of course, it ’s energy! All the other stuff is meaningless if you don’t have life energy.
If you said money, you’re wrong! Wait up I don’t have anything against money.
In this episode of Action-Ables let’s discuss how life energy matters when it comes to reaching your goals.
One of the things I learnt early on in life is I learnt about an interesting concept from this amazing book called ‘Your Money or your life” by Vicki Robbin & Joe Dominguez. It was the concept of how we exchange our life energy for earning money.
So I expanded this concept and believe that the most important resource of life is our life energy to not just earn more money but it relates to every aspect of our lives!
So Why life energy. It’s ironic how many people think that in life money or anything else is more important than their energy levels. Why is it that physical, mental and emotional energy aren’t being paid enough attention?
It’s obvious that without high levels of energy, an athlete can’t break records?
Similarly, you won’t be able to reach your goals if you don’t learn how to generate powerful life energy for yourself.
Think about your life, that career you love dearly, or those family vacations you take once a year and the ones you’re yet to take, or anything you want to do and enjoy, it’ll require you to have high levels of energy.
Now, even though this sounds obvious, Yet, it’s ironic how few people even think about having the right energy levels.
Even though we all have heard and know intellectually that everything around us is energy, we tend to forget this fact. Every thought you have has energy, how you act accordingly is in turn the energy you create. If you act from a place of positive thoughts, your actions will be positive and so will the results you get.
There are several factors that determine your energy levels such as the quality of the foods you consume, your immediate environment, the quality of your thoughts and physical movements.
It’s no wonder then how some people are able to operate at high levels of performance. They are able to generate enough life energy for themselves and the goals they want to reach their lives.
Here’s a thought experiment you can do right now. Imagine a scene from a movie in which the hero needs to accomplish a task. How would you describe the energy level of this hero? High or low? Well, to state the cliche, you are the hero in your life.
Everything you choose to do, your work, the quality of your relationships, your goals requires you to be at your best and at your highest energy levels.
Here are two ways to increase this important resource of your life
Set your intention: Now, I don’t want to suggest a particular way to do this, for me it’s meditation, you choose a time, place or a way to set an intention for yourself daily. If you know what matters to you at least during the day, then being present to that goal, person or situation becomes much simpler.
For example, if you want to be more patient with a person in your life, set an intention for it. The next time you’re in a trying situation with them, remind yourself of the intention you set earlier for dealing with them.
2. Energy ATM: Depending on what it is you’re trying to achieve you’ll need enough energy. Think of it this way, just like you need specific amount of money to buy something, use your life energy sparingly. Don’t waste your time and emotions on things or situations that don’t serve you. If you do, you’ll be squandering away your precious life energy!
Now for some tough love.
If you only wish to do the bare minimum of existing, earning money and not really think of expanding and reaching your highest potential, then you’ll need minimal life energy and that’s okay!
However, if there are things you want to do and achieve in life, then get real serious and protect your most important resource in life which is indeed your life energy!
