Energy,Goals, and Hope

What do energy, goals, and hope have in common? Everything!

Our energy is derived from our goals in life. Well thought out and defined goals will provide the energy we need to get up and motivated each day. Goals provide excitement, which fuels our desire.

Our energy does not come from vitamins or energy drinks. It comes from our inner desire to improve our life and our circumstances.

This is where hope comes into play. Without hope we have little reason to be excited about our future. Hope provides a turbo charged boost to our energy level.

Think about a time in your past when you had little hope. How did you feel?

Now think about a time when you had hope. How did you feel then?

Infuse your life with goals and hope and watch your energy level increase!

Power Supply Syndrome

Have you noticed nearly everything we buy either includes or we can purchase a power supply for it? Cell phones, laptops, Ipad, Ipod, nooks, kindles, whatever. The idea is to keep the unit fully charged at all times.

We have an older laptop which worked while plugged in, but the battery would not charge. It wasn't used for travel so we never paid any attention to replacing the battery. Recently the laptop shut down and would not come back on. I took it to our IT guy and he used a different supply cord and it fired right up.

What is the point? There are times when we concentrate on our lack of energy or strength instead of focusing on the supply point of where our energy and strength actually originates. In the case of the laptop, it was an electrical cord. In the case of our life, it could be many sources which are not renewed daily.

And we wonder why we lack energy and focus! Where do you derive your strength from? Have you feed it lately?

Back In the Saddle

Since my last post on change, the craziest thing happened! We went through a significant change in our life. Thankfully it was for the better. It seems the more things stay the same the more they are actually changing.

I enrolled back in school and soon realized this was not bringing me closer to my goals. Higher education is vital, but increasing our debt level is not. Plus, it took away from my writing time which is more important at this time in my life. I'll resume school at a later date.

We also cancelled our vacation realizing once again our this was taking us away from our short term goals. Delayed gratification is tough at times, but worth it. When we reach our goals vacations will be plentiful.

Change is inevitable and should be embraced.
