I used to believe I was “naturally low energy.” In fact most of us feel like we don’t have enough energy, which is why “fat burners” and “energy drinks” are a multi-billion-dollar industry.
You already have more than enough energy, but there’s a problem.
You are sick.
Think about the last time you had a bad cold or the flu. Were you able to work, or was your body beaten down from fighting off the infection?
You can’t function at peak levels if you’re sick, and you are sick.
- Sick of working a job you don’t like.
- Sick of dealing with dramatic family members.
- Sick from being disconnected from the universe.
- Sick from being glued to your retard phone.
- Sick from crappy friends and draining romantic relationships.
Most of all, you are sick from trying to live a life others want you to live, as you do not live by the Gorilla Mindset.
Energy can only be directed in one of two directions.
1. You can fight off negative emotions (stay the same or regress).
2. You can work towards your life vision (move forward).
Any energy spent dealing with drama and negativity is energy being taken away from living your life vision.
Living a life others dream of requires a lot of energy. You must put work in. How can you have the energy to put that work in if your body is fighting off spiritual and emotional sickness?
Conduct an energy audit.
Look for “energy leaks.”
In personal finance you’re told to look for “leaks.” Leaks are a small amount of money that can sink your financial boat. How many of us have Netflix subscriptions we should cancel? I was just charged $99 by Dropbox. I have no idea why.
After going through my finances I found over $200 a month in leaks. This was money I wasted each and every month – nearly $2,500 a year!
These leaks must be sealed or your boat will sink. The same is true of emotional leaks.
You have energy leaking, but you’re not aware of or conscious of why.
People are taking the life out of you without you even realizing it, as your body has been sick for so long.
Do you know what it feels like to…
- Wake up energized to start the day.
- Be excited for what the day has in store.
- To fall asleep tired but fulfilled.
Remember the chapter on lifestyle from Gorilla Mindset.
What is lifestyle? Your lifestyle is the sum total of the activities you engage in and the people you associate with.
What is your lifestyle? How is your lifestyle impacting your mood and mindset?
Does your lifestyle lead to stress and drama or to fulfillment and meaning?
For the next three days, write out everything you do.
Write out who you spend your time with.
What do you do on an hour-by-hour basis. How do you feel after engaging in these activities?
Does watching the news truly inform you or does it fill an emotional need or free you from boredom? Does watching any sort of TV or caring about the outcome of sporting events bring you closer to your hopes, dreams, and vision?
Who do you spend your time with? Are your friends and family members a drain? Do they suck away your life force with their incessant demands, negativity, and gossip.
Reflect on how you feel. When you leave the room after being with a person, what is going on inside your head? Do you feel amazing, blah, or awful?
When you talk to someone, do you feel inspired and energized, or disempowered and drained?
Energy requires vision.
To have focused energy you must know where you’re going.
Choose who you want to be. What is your perfect day? What does your life look like?
When you are about to do something or see someone, reflect on how you feel.
Ask yourself, in the present moment, am I acting like the person I want to be?
