It takes money to make money. We’ve all heard that platitude. But it’s time to wake up to the reality that money is a lot like energy, just once removed.
So let’s talk about energy.
Remember that the emotion follows the motion. E-motion, it comes “OUT OF” the motion.
So if you’re not feeling energetic, it’s because you haven’t been investing energy!
Just like with money, it’s important to make wise investments of energy.
However, unlike money, energy is something that is always readily available to us, no matter how much money we have in the bank, at least when we have our health. Energy is the most abundant resource in nature (I think)!
If you’re feeling tired and sluggish right now, take an inventory of where you’ve been investing your energy. Have you been investing any energy at all?
This blog right here is one of the ways that I invest energy. Actually, it does more for me than it can ever do for you!
Life is the most interesting, challenging, frustrating, complex and rewarding Role Playing Game (RPG) that you’ll ever play.
So learn the basic rules of it! There are structural rules to the game, like health, consciousness, energy, money, communication skills, relationships.
It all takes effort and energy. But if you’ve chosen life, if you’ve committed to life, you can learn them.
Just like in an RPG, if you want to level up faster, you’ve got to kill bigger and bigger monsters. Some, when you’re a newbie, are really hard to kill and you’ll have to wait until later. Some monsters, once you’ve advanced a whole lot won’t give you enough experience to level up almost at all.
In fact, I believe that in life, your skills aren’t just staying the same, like in an RPG, they’re actually going down if you don’t use them.
Remember the #1 rule of having a penis: use it or lose it.
So you’ve got to keep killing bigger monsters. You’ve got to take on challenges that really do challenge you and take you to the next level.
It doesn’t get easier either, it gets harder in a lot of ways.
But it also gets more fun.
You get to watch yourself growing and living and kicking ass.
It takes patience, focus, energy, and recharging…
So what are you going to invest your energy in for the next hour? Are you going to just browse facebook? Or are you going to meditate, take 30 deep breaths, research more into your passion, look up ways that your current skills can either be sharpened or can be packaged in order to give more value.
