ENERGY Success isnt something you chase. It is something you have to put forth the effort for constantly. - Michael Jordan
ENERGY The first thing you need to do is to channel your energy. But what is energy?
ENERGY Energy is the fuel and passion that drives success. To understand energy, you must understand the relationship between effort and reward. To feed your positive energy, you must recognize the lessons learned from failure. The energy needed to succeed may mean only five more minutes of effort every day. Those who have energy do not quit until they have one.
ENERGY Energy is about digging deep and using your personal power to achieve. Energy is persistence. It is knowing that when you start something new your effort will always be greater then your reward.
ENERGY Strategies to Maximize your Energy: 1.Give five more minutes. 2.Eat, drink, and sleep regularly, and well. 3.Do not drink, smoke, or do drugs. 4.Get physical for at least 30 minutes, three days a week. 5.Strive to be energetic and enthusiastic. 6.Do not stop at the 99 yard line!
ENERGY Take the Quiz to determine your physical and mental energy level.
ENERGY Simply give yourself points for each question based on the following: A – 1 POINT B – 2 POINTS C – 3 POINTS D – 4 POINTS Then add the points up!
ENERGY There are four energy levels: *10 to 14 points: Low energy I need a tow truck to get out of bed! *15 to 24 points: Medium-low energy Im not too bad but Im almost a couch potato! *25 to 30 points: Medium high energy Im doing good, but can I do better? *31 to 40 points: High energy Whoa! I have enough energy to light Las Vegas for a week!
DREAMS Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. - Robert F. Kennedy
DREAMS Dream. Visualize. Imagine. It all begins with a dream. With a dream all things are possible: success, happiness, fortune. Highly productive people dream to rise above the negative, then commit their dreams to reality. Those who have a dream have begun the journey to success.
DREAMS Dreams quite often start with a passion, something you love, that only you feel. If you are not sure what your dream is, think about what you are passionate about.
DREAMS It is ok to have little dreams. Sometimes little dreams lead to bigger and bigger dreams. Also, know that your dream may change as you grow, just stay true to yourself. Whatever you dream, believe in it. But do not wait to do it! Begin it… TODAY!
GIVE BACK You will discover that you have two hands. One is for helping yourself and the other is for helping others. - Audrey Hepburn
GIVE BACK Your community needs you. You know how hard it is to reach for and achieve your dreams, to overcome the obstacles and the naysayer.
GIVE BACK Now you can use your experience to help others. There is no greater reward then helping people.
GIVE BACK No amount of money can equal the feeling you will get when you give back to the community and the world around you. Measure your success not by the amount of money you have, but rather by the number of lives you touch.
GIVE BACK Everything you achieve will live inside you like a bright, clean flame. Let that flame light the path for others. Doing so will help you on the road to your ultimate goal…. HAPPINESS!
GIVE BACK So here is your final challenge… Find someone in need and show them you care. Sharing your light with others will not diminish yours.
