A question, in a variety of forms, consistently asked of us by our coaching clients is how to cultivate energy? Tired of the "knowns", beyond sleep, nutrition & exercise, our coaching partners are a universally seeking lot. They keep us on our toes! A new answer to more energy? Wow, how about a tough question...no more softballs!
So we boiled it down to one word...Imagination. Invigorate your mind with the power of a query. Ask a question then explore where your mind takes you. Modernity asks us to do. The rates at which we are tasked and held accountable often create within us a myopic vision and response loop - achieving the bare minimum, constantly, is tiring. An analogy; imagine running while holding your breath. Just considering that makes me exhausted!
Your imagination is your being's natural rejuvenator. To turn it on you only need to ask a question. My favorite two prompts for instant energy;
- Spin a globe and point to a spot and ask myself what is my contemporary doing at that location right now?
- Ask myself, what would my day look like a few hundred years ago?
Feeling tired or sluggish? Go ahead & cultivate the limitless dynamic of the powerful resource always at your disposal; your imagination! Don't worry, it doesn't age, wear out or rust. You'll know it when you find that child-like exuberance wrapped around the dust covered discards of your youth. Enjoy!
