In my book: From Entrepreneur to Big Fish: 7 Principles to Wild Success. The first principle that I discuss is ‘Give Energy To That Which You Want to Grow.” I first published this book in 2005. Do you want to make more money? Do you want to have a better relationship? Do you want to have better health? Do you want be happier? This principle works with every single thing that you want. But first, we need to be very clear about what you want. What you desire deep down. Then you need to be open and honest with yourself about what you are giving your energy to. Your energy is your thoughts, your words and your actions. How are you spending them? What are your thoughts? What are your words? What are your actions? Those things ‘inform’ the world around you what you truly want. AND they need to be aligned! YES. All 3 need to be moving in the same direction. Or you are confusing the universe (and those around you!) and your self and maybe saying all the ‘right’ things but your actions are not. This is called not walking your talk. We need to walk our talk.
I have been working with a Women Entrepreneur on and off for years. She was a rock star in her world. But suddenly life was shattered. Her husband got ill, he died. She was devastated. She lost her business. Life was off course. She, every day, had to make a conscious choice. She chose ‘extraordinary’. Every day, she gave her energy to the choice of ‘extraordinary’. She did not have to do this. She could have remained a victim to the tragic events of her life. But instead she chose extraordinary. She was a model for her daughter at that time. Her daughter could have watched her choose victim. But instead she watched her choose ‘extraordinary.’ This was a gift not only to her own life but to her daughters as well. Today, she is back on her feet with her million dollar business, having a blast at work. Spending quality time with her daughter and living in extraordinary learning the lessons that extraordinary wants her to learn. And cherishing each and every opportunity.
