Hello there! I’m so glad you’re here today! I’ve been thinking about you all week! I couldn’t wait to talk to you about how we use ENERGY to define our lives.
My first thought, of course, was to think about the physical energy we use on a day-to-day basis.
You know, the ENERGY we spend on tasks that push us toward or away from our goals.
That IS an important way of using energy to define our lives, but above that I realized something even more powerful. I thought today we would talk about the ENERGY we create with regards to our attitudes.
A bit of a twist, but I loved where this idea took me, so let’s follow it!
Now, sometimes you’ll walk up to someone and they put off a certain vibe. Well, that vibe is energy. You can actually feel it ten feet away. It can be good energy, bad energy, scattered energy, calming energy, etc.
This energy is literally giving people a heads up of what to expect from us. It lets people know whether they should stick around or Just. Keep. Moving.
Maybe, just maybe it's not a good time to ask the boss for a raise.
It’s not just negative energy we feel. We feel excitement, hope, and gratitude, etc.
Our energy effectively decides how people perceive us and how they react to us.
Is it possible that opportunities in our lives have been created and/or destroyed merely by someone just coming into our space? They didn’t even need to talk to us?
That’s how powerful your energy (your attitude) is in your life and to your future.
Let me ask you a question, “What kind of energy are you creating right now?”
Is your energy helping you create a wonderful life?
Is it helping you reach toward your extraordinary potential?
Is it attracting amazing experiences?
If not, wouldn't it be great if there were a way you could shift it?
Well, there is! It can essentially be done with one word.
The word is…
2. a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something;a point of view.
I love this! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
Perspective allows us to shift the position from which we are viewing something, which could inevitably change our energy.
Here’s an example:
I used to get upset when I would encounter someone who was rude. It would send me down the “I must be worthless” ladder. Then I decided to shift my perspective of rude people. I decided to view them as individuals who could have just discovered something they couldn’t control. Something like their loved one was gravely ill or they just found out they were betrayed by someone they trusted. I decided to look at them as individuals who were obviously struggling with something in life.
I still feel the sting of the rudeness, but it doesn’t send me down the worthless ladder anymore. I am, in the end, able to actually have compassion for them, and I rebound much faster from the exchange, which then allows me to get on with living the life I want to live.
This is so important because before we know it, we can find ourselves, days later, still stuck in the crankiness of that event and it balls up with other events and then suddenly we’ve become the rude ones.
So, considering that you are truly a spectacular individual and that you are filled with endless amounts of fiery, positive, powerful, beautiful, and endlessly unstoppable energy, you might consider that your energy, positive or negative plays a large part in defining your life.
That being said, let’s pay attention to the energy we are creating today, so we can experience all the beauty that exists in the world, because let’s face it, if you’re reading this blog it’s because you know you can!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I’m always so thrilled to have you here with me! I would love to hear from you!
Next week, we are going to talk about words and how they are used to define… well, everything! Yay!!! ! I love, love, love words!
