"And what is a man without energy?
Nothing, nothing at all." Mark Twain
You know the feeling.
You're out of steam. You're out of gas. Your get-up-and-go has gone kaput. And you're fading fast.
You're drained. You're sapped. You're dead on your feet. Your energy gauge has hit rock bottom.
You know you need to do something; something positive, something constructive, something that moves you in the direction of your dreams. But you CAN'T seem to find your second gear. You CAN'T locate your second wind. You CAN'T get out there and go for your goals with everything you've got. Even though you know you should.
So you pack it in - and head for the couch.
"The key that unlocks energy is desire." Earl Nightingale
It's no big shocker that many folks give in to fatigue, and give in rather quickly. And there's a reason. Whether it's at work, at home or somewhere in between, the vast majority spend their days doing something they don't want to do. That's right; something they don't want to do!
They go to a job they really don't really like. They deal with all kinds of problems they wished they didn't have to deal with. Even though they'd rather be doing something else, somewhere else, they keep repeating the wearisome grind.
Tired to the bone and all tuckered out, these folks oftentimes labor to just make it through the day. Easy tasks become difficult. Minor issues become major struggles. And tiny problems balloon into big-time obstacles. Constantly doing stuff they don't want to do, these people eventually lose their zest, their zeal... and their reason for living.
They feel hollow, empty and unfulfilled. And they're miserable.
"The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have." Norman Vincent Peale
What about you?
When you're dog-tired, do you give up - or do you keep going? Do you call it quits - or do you keep plugging? When exhaustion starts to set in, slowly overtaking your body and your will to continue, do you give out - and do you reach deep down and find the energy you need?
The answers probably depend a great deal on what you're working on. If it's something that turns you on, chances are pretty good that you reach down and find your second gear. If, on the other hand, it's something that turns you off, chances are better than average you hang it up.
Instead of being plagued by constant fatigue and total exhaustion, why don't you find something that really gets you going - and then really go get it? Instead of constantly squandering your energy on things you don't want to do, why don't you channel your energy into something more exciting, more rewarding; something that can turn your life around?
Something like chasing your goals and aspirations?
"Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives." Denis Waitley
Let's face it; you never get tired of doing the things you love to do. You never get tired of pursuing your passions. You never get tired of making your dreams come true. NEVER!
When you're doing the things you love, you actually create energy. That's right; you create excitement. You create vitality. You create a dash of ebullient enthusiasm that cannot be contained.
And you create positive charged results. Now that sure sounds a lot better than trudging though another yucky day, doesn't it?
Please vow to never spend another sluggish day down in the dumps, all worn out and weary. Instead, listen to your heart - and follow your dreams. I want you to get out there and do the things you WANT to do, the things you NEED to do; the things that make you come alive from the inside out.
And do them with everything you've got.
The Bottom Line: When you start living the life you love, you'll start loving the life you live.
