Energy Drain or Gain

Are you draining or gaining energy in your day?  There are two different kinds of energy that you utilize and they impact the drain/gain factor.  Hint: they are not positive and negative.

Do you know what drains you and what replenishes you?  Your thoughts, feelings, words, actions, situations, relationships, projects, and so on all have an energy field to them.  It’s not what they are doing to you that creates the drain or gain.  It is your perspective and judgement of them that creates the energetic connection and ongoing impact on YOU.  Here is what you can do to better understand your energetic drains and gains:

  1. Complete a check-in with yourself – Am I being drained in this moment or gaining some momentum?
  2. If you are experiencing drain – What perspective do I have with this?  What other approaches might I take instead?
  3. If you are experiencing gain –  What perspective do I have with this?  How can I use this even when things aren’t going as planned?

Try this philosophy on for size…

Life is a perfect adventure; a game that cannot be won or lost, only played. ~ an iPEC Foundation Principle

Have an adventure with your energy!  Play with it and strategize to see what results you get.  Have fun with it and know you are a vital player in this game – whether you’re sitting on the bench doing nada or at bat practicing each day.

Want to know the two kinds of energy?  Tune in next Friday! 🙂

Synergistically Yours~
