What Percentage (%) of your energy are you giving to your goals?
Ok so go with me on this thinking – ‘wherever you place your attention your (personal) energy follows’. And let’s say that your personal energy is the amount of vitality, strength, or force you have to put into a task or activity. It may be physical, intellectual, or emotional.
So let’s imagine that the amount of personal energy you have available in a day is 100. Try to calculate how much you are giving to events in your day; say thinking about problems with your kids, worrying about future events you can’t predict, or past events you can’t change, worrying about money or about an argument with your partner.
Why not make a list like this:
Kids not being tidy 10
Future Events 15
Past Events 5
A problem with someone at work 10
An argument with your Partner 15
So how much energy have you left for you and your goals?
It’s amazing when you think like this, how much energy we expend on things that really do little or nothing to help us move passionately towards our goals.
However, if we wake each day and are able to focus on our goals, i.e. focus our attention on our goals, it helps us to design where we want to focus our energy, rather than let it wander off to our most recent thought.
Try it for yourself, it will give you insight into how successful you are in getting to your goals.
Love with passion, energy & happiness.
