Here’s a conversation that exemplifies energy depletion:
I was listening to someone the other day tell me how awful their job was. And how she suffered from energy depletion. She went on and on (and on) about how terrible her job was.
So I asked her. “What’s good about it?”
“Nothing!” she asserted.
“Does it pay you?” I asked.
“Do you like getting that pay?”
She could tell I was going somewhere with my questioning and gave me a suspicious look.
“Yeah, I like the pay.”
“How about benefits? Does it give you benefits?”
She gave me a begrudging nod.
“Bet you could come up with 5 more things you like about your job too, if you worked at it.”
“Why would I bother doing that?” she asked.
That led to a longer conversation and the acquisition of a new client, which was great. But, basically, what I told her was this: the brain is predisposed to look for what doesn’t work. That was necessary in the jungle in order to anticipate problems.
How To Avoid Energy Depletion
Nowadays, however, having energy is our most important commodity. Looking for what works gives us energy. Focusing on what isn’t working is a sure recipe for energy depletion.
So if you want a great way to top up your energy, flip the game board on something you’ve been negative about and actively LOOK for what you like. This has the power to flip any energy depletion you may be suffering from. And changing your energy will make you feel powerful and in charge.
Try it. Having energy is crucial to creating your life, especially your BEST LIFE. Learning to change the habits of energy depletion is something we all can do, just by changing our focus!
Your Health –Take Charge!
Your health is important –taking charge of it yourself is a wise thing to do. Particularly these days, when both Canada and the US rank so low for life expectancy! (The latest study published in Health Affairs revealed that the United States now ranks 49th for male and female life expectancy worldwide.)
That’s a big fall from the fifth place ranking the US had in 1950. If that isn’t discouraging, add in the fact that U.S. per capita health spending rose at nearly twice the rate of other developed countries between 1970 and 2002.
What’s more, three of the “big killers” — obesity, traffic accidents and murder — cannot explain the United States’ dismal life expectancy data, as other countries have similar death rates from these factors.
Your Health Should Not Rely on Drugs!
Many are speculating that this is a result of the fact that the medical system relies on drugs and surgery to treat illness, rather than focusing on prevention and wellness.
It doesn’t help that the U.S. now ranks last out of 19 countries for unnecessary deaths, deaths that could have been avoided through timely and effective medical care. For example, more than 2 millions Americans are now affected by hospital acquired infections EVERY YEAR and 100,000 people die as a result. It’s not uncommon for people to go into the hospital for a “routine” medical procedure, only to contract a severe hospital-acquired infection or drug reaction or other medication mishap.
Ten years ago, Professor Bruce Pomerance of the University of Toronto concluded that properly prescribed and correctly taken pharmaceutical drugs were the fourth leading cause of death in the US. Yikes! This statistic alone should get you taking charge of Your Health!
Your Health–The Good News
So that’s the bad news. But there’s tremendous GOOD NEWS. The good news is this: YOU are in CONTROL of your health. So take that control. Don’t believe that exercise and eating right are just positive things to do. They’re required for good health.
And now, thanks to Youtube (http://www.youtube.com), you can take any kind of cooking class and exercise program over the Internet.
So, take action charge of Your Health now–while you still have the option!
The Importance of Positive Thinking:
We all have the propensity to think some things are impossible. But if you’re an entrepreneur or small business owner, you know how important it is to keep an open mind and practice positive thinking.And all of us in these challenging ‘economic’ times need to keep ourselves clean from the rampant negativity that’s in the news and around us.
When I’m coaching people, I spend a good deal of time ‘conditioning’ their minds so first of all, they can be successful and secondly, so that they can hold on to the success they create. Because if outside success doesn’t match the vibration a person has inside, it won’t stick anyway.
How To Cultivate Positive Thinking:
One of the easiest ways of getting yourself into positive thinking is to surround yourself with positive experiences and people. Here is a wonderful YouTube to get you realizing that really anything is possible. Enjoy!
Practicing Positive Thinking is like going to a ‘mental gym’
It will make you feel strong yet light-hearted. Getting yourself in a state that’s strong and light-hearted is hugely important if we want to create great lives. Positive Thinking isn’t just a nice thing to do. It’s essential for growth and success!
