"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you." -- Oprah Winfrey
"Out of need springs desire, and out of desire springs the energy and the will to win." -- Denis Waitley
"The more willing you are to surrender to the energy within you, the more power can flow through you." -- Shakti Gawain
"The human individual lives usually far within his limits; he possesses powers of various sorts which he habitually fails to use. He energizes below his maximum, and he behaves below his optimum. . . . it is only an inveterate habit -- the habit of inferiority to our full self." -- William James
What I Wonder...
Listen to my thoughts about this energising inspirational quotation in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about a favourite 'passion' of mine - this time the video features trees (erm)!...
(NOTE: Yes, *I* wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
Every now and then I remember what's important in any given day.
(There are MANY more 'chores' associated with running a successful website, I'm sure you realise, just as there are chores that you have with your own J-O-B, but anyway...)
But when all this is done - and believe me, I have gratitude for the shape of my work-at-home day I really do, and I really enjoy sharing my passions with the world - I still need to energise myself one way or another...
So, as I say in the video above, what energises me is the following:
* Listening to music I love - e.g. Chemical Brothers electronica
* Dancing to music I love
* Exercising, or simply going for a refreshing walk
Work is important, and so are day-to-day chores - but all 'work' is made more bearable once we remember to put a daily dose of joy into our life.
Or, as I like to think of it, to energise ourselves...
So I discovered Ralph Waldo Emmerson's thoughts on the energising spirit when I did a search for energising inspirational quotes. (I'm often interested in what others have to say on a subject that's important to me.) And I must say I'm in agreement - our energising spirit is the fuel that allows us to get up each day and do what needs to be done.
But we mustn't forget that the energising spirit needs regular replenishment, regular re-fuelling. We need to know what energises us, and we need to do it - regularly!
So I've shared what energises me, now it's your turn to share - tell us all in the comment section below, what energises you? Doing so - reminding yourself what makes you come alove - WILL be of benefit to you as you first remember and then put it into action, and it benefits us as it allows us to remember our own energising passions too... :-)
What YOU wonder?...
Yes, I'd love to know your thoughts on Ralph Waldo Emmerson's inspirational quote, or any of the energising inspirational quotes, and in particular on what energises you... You can leave comments below! :-)
PS If you want to know how I come to be a work-at-home type, and how you could have access to this kind of lifestyle too, then the simple answer is SBI! (or Site Build It!). Basically, I earn a full-time living from creating content-based websites that aim to serve others first (like Self Help Collective). And the best way of doing this, these days, is via SiteSell's all-in-one Internet business-building software service called SBI!
Of course, nothing is quite as simple as it seems, and so I've created a free guide to SBI! where you can discover if SBI! is for you!
PPS Now please comment, please have your say - thank you!
