Musings Episode 49: Energy…

Hey, hope everyone’s been having a great weekend and creating some new memories. I’m feeling a bit knackered (which I’d like to sort out), so this episodic musing will be short.

If there’s two things that are inevitably woven into the patterns of day to day life, it’s numbers and energy. Let’s focus on the latter.

if you want to find the secrets of the universe think in terms of energy frequency and vibration nikola tesla,energy, musings episode 49 energy, rego's life, rego's life quotes, energy quotes, how to increase energy, increase energy levels, increase energy, how to increase your energy, increasing energy, increase your energy, how to increase your energy level

Energy fuels a lot of different things, and starts with a thought. Energy fuels how you go about your day to day activities such as work, interactions with people, the way you feel towards certain things people say or do, and can even effect how you approach exercise and your usual workout.

Different energies can conflict with one another – positive and negative being the most general example. What’s convenient (and pretty cool) though is that you can change your energy, by doing different things. It’s not just coffee that can get a person energized. It doesn’t take energy drinks. It doesn’t even take energy pills.

I remember car trading days, 4 days a week worth of LOUD auctioneers, car fumes, the shouts of ringmen and dealers all around. No matter how much money, 5 hours straight of an auction chant at full blast (literally) has a tendency to make your ears ring. I used to practically LIVE off of energy drinks just to get through those mornings (waking up at 5:15 a.m. has never been my cup of tea).

What I didn’t realize is that the energy drinks actually did more harm than good. If anything after a while they were burning out my nervous system and depreciating my vitamin B levels, which had to be counteracted with supplemental daily doses of vitamin B in liquid or caplet form.

Finally, I quit the energy drinks. Started focusing more on alternative, natural ways of feeling the “pump.”

It took a while, but I realized that “pump” had nothing to do with caffeine, taurine, or any of that stuff. It has to do with thoughts you think, actions you take…and I realized I was bored. No, wait not bored – burnt out. As humans we’re meant to constantly evolve, and in that line of business, the plateau had been reached. It was time to evolve.

Start trying and learning new things and you’ll realize your energy levels increase naturally. Let’s put it into a fitness perspective: the reason most people get “discourage” or “tired” of fitness isn’t because it drains energy – on the contrary, it actually boosts energy levels and increases mental awareness.

The main reason is because their body is bored to tears of doing the same thing over and over, not being able to test its limits.

The thought of things that excite you, depress you, make you happy, sad, etc, all change energy levels. Even feeling challenged or taking on something new changes energy levels.

A feeling of nervousness is an indicator of fear. Fear can stem from thinking you don’t know/aren’t familiar with a certain something. The only energy you’ll get from that is low energy.

A feeling of excitement can have the same physical feelings of nervousness, but a bit different. Excitement means you’re ready for something, you may not be familiar with it but you have a thought of confidence.

So really, thoughts are connected to feelings, and feelings connected to energy, all in respective order.

You think Monday is going to suck, so you wake up feeling down about it, and continue the day not feeling very energized, thinking you have to have coffee, that you think will make you feel better, thus boosting your energy levels.

See the process?

You go on a date, thinking about how the who thing’s going to play out, and you feel confident because you’ve been observant and have a game plan (player pun not intended), so you meet up with your date and have confident, excited, non-negative energy.

See the difference?

It starts with a thought…that continues to a feeling…and manifests in energy – which we’re all connected by.

You wouldn’t be half (I bet even a quarter) as excited about the thought of having a day tour of a funeral home than you would about having a day tour of a [insert your favorite thing to do here].

This is what makes concerts so epic, team sports so spirited, and the feeling of walking into a hospital somber and serious. It’s the overall energy of the collective people in the places.

Negative and positive energy can’t coincide in the same places. So remember to take care in who you associate with, what you listen to, read, and what you watch. Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday and has a kickass Monday.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 36: Promises…

Promises are powerful things. Ever noticed when you were a kid how you hung onto a promise like it was a golden egg? You may have believed so much in promises made by your parents, friends, siblings, the mere thought of that promise being fulfilled kept you in a high mood more than anything else going on that day, or that week.

The fear of a promise being unfulfilled was non-existent to you, and right down at the very core you knew no doubt. If it was said it was going to be done, if it was said it was going to happen, it was…

I’m sure a few times or so a promise may have been broken when you were a kid – and I’m almost definite as adults today anyone of us can relate to the disappointment felt.

This isn’t about the disappointment though. This isn’t about the promise not being carried through. This is about the undying belief and absolute certainty we have when we’re children. Nothing can shake it, and no one can change our minds on it.

promise made promise kept, promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

Slowly, as people age they have a tendency to be told to face the real world – that promises are broken and things are bound to disappoint.

“No sense in getting your hopes up.”
“Entertain the thought for the child when they’re young, but they need to face reality when they’re older.”

This isn’t a bad thing – in fact, things like these can actually teach you that negativity, doubt, fear, worry, and disbelief are all learnt thoughts – not something you were born with – yet oddly enough, as you’re born in innocence, so you’re born in optimism, positivity, and certainty, too.

That’s a powerful statement in itself.

Born with positives – slowly learn negatives.

This means, you have the power to overcome the negatives – to unlearn, to erase, to remold your thinking. Remold yourself, and your beliefs.

promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

There are times when people become so disappointed in something they bother not believing at all – they become struck with “I’ll believe it when I see it” – yet what they don’t realize is, that in order to see it happen, you have to first believe it.

Many millionaires are not made so by stroke of luck – they believe in themselves. Believe the lifestyle they visualize themselves having. Believe in the car they see themselves driving.

Millionaires, in fact, truly are “visionaries.” Being a visionary isn’t as cut and dry as being able to imagine. It also takes such an undying and deliberate excitement and obsession (in a positive way) that you can literally think up any part of your ideal lifestyle and mentally live it to the point where you feel physically “tingly” or “heady” from the mere thought.

promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

It’s no magic trick you’ve discovered.

No 90 day miracle training you’re conquered.

You’ve merely gotten in touch with yourself.

…and that? That’s the most productive, and massive step you could take towards your ideal you, that can’t be measured in days or strength – but simply the taming of your thoughts, and clearing out of your mind.

There’s a quote by Bruce Lee…

don't think feel, promises, bruce lee quotes, don't think feel bruce lee, promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

he had it right – and not just in martial arts. When you truly, vehemently, want to get in touch with or aspire to your true, successful self, while building the plan or structuring the path may require thinking – in the end, it boils down to FEELING every part of the success you want – before it even happens.

FEEL your success, before it happens – and you’ll no longer WANT or YEARN for it – but instead naturally, and gracefully, slide into it. You’ll feel it so much, when it arrives, it’ll FEEL normal.

…and that…? That’s the power of promises. Promises, are beliefs, tied with feelings. Control and alter the feelings in your favor, and your beliefs will effortlessly follow. Get excited about that Maserati or custom built Honda you want. Get excited at the thought of 3 Brazilian models tearing down the highway with you and not having to blink at your gas tank.

promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism, wake up and live

Get excited about your business growing, and increasing in profit, and not having to even utter the words “budget” or “bills” – because they’re more of an accessory, an option, than a priority. Because they get knocked down a peg, when you finally find out how to FEEL success, and flip the cards in your favor.

That’s a promise. Everytime you make it your business to feel the excitement of something good you want, that’s a promise….

…and the only way you can break that promise, is by breaking, or doubting, that feeling.

Come hell or high water, don’t break your promise.

promise made promise kept, promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

Come hell or high water, don’t break the feeling.

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 31: Lost…

Over the past few days I’ve been feeling a little lost…

feeling lost

More or less today, in fact. I get like this sometimes – these bouts of no direction.

Then again, everyone has a tendency to get like this.

It’s not a bad thing – in fact, it can be beneficial.

The lost feeling I usually have is a combination of various factors.

The bouts of no direction, when I think about them are akin to being out at sea.

It’s times like these I feel the need to head to the beach – go for a swim, and just go with the current.

Low tide, high tide.

Weak current, strong current.

Calm before the storm.

Chop and swells post rain.

I just go into the water, and let the ocean pull me either way it’s going.

The less you fight the water, the more freeing it is.

The less you fight the water, the more you become it.

Respect the ocean, and she respects you.

Feel lost, and she’ll make you feel found again.

Diving into the swell with my eyes open and swimming underwater until I see fit to come up, that feeling of the water is like a warm embrace of a hug or blanket on a cold morning.

It calms me – it brings me back to my center. It reminds me that when I feel lost – I can always find myself again – if I just don’t resist – if I just go with it.

Alright….enough poetics. I wanna share with you guys the benefits of feeling lost sometimes – take what you read next and really study it – or as they so fondly used to say back at uni “do some critical thinking.” Within it, you may find answers…on finding yourself.

So usually, times like these I have a tendency to “disappear.” When I was a kid (pre-teens through teens) – and still oftentimes present day – people defined me most often in two ways – ghost and slick. The former, well, as I said earlier because I have a tendency to just “disappear,” then pop back up when I’m good and ready. The latter – well, that’s another story. Apparently it has something to do with “good with words” and “charisma.”

Albeit my tendencies to disappear, instead I left the beach and hopped on my laptop, wanting to share with you guys (and ladies) some insight into this whole thing.

Feeling, and being lost can be good. As you learn to take the time and start discovering who you are, through mental training and quiet moments you have (or make) throughout the day – it’s a feeling that can become quite natural.

Many times it’s good to just go with it – let yourself wander, let yourself clear and filter your mind of mental chatter and stressful thoughts – allow yourself to zone out. Keep in mind, I’m not talking about waddling or dwelling in the negative. I’m talking about navigating through your mental highways like you would if you went for a long drive to clear your head.

By the way – check out chromogenic.net for more great photos like this one.

This is explained a little further in the free eBook I offer over at my Official Site – go ahead and subscribe to get it, it’s something you don’t wanna pass up.

I’m saying if you feel like you have no direction some days – make the time to get lost in that feeling of no direction – and find your center. Do every and any activity that seems calming or de-stressing to you. The same way a husband can zone out his wife – do the same with any stressful thoughts you have…and just focus on you.

As you learn to execute this properly, the feeling of being lost can easily turn from cumbersome – to euphoric and blissful. Take full advantage of it – it’s your mind doing a mental “detox” – many just focus on physical detox – but with that comes both mental, and spiritual – spiritual as in energy. At some point, you’ve gotta do all 3.

Why get lost in being lost? Because – there’s so much benefit to it. It’s not something that can necessarily be explained outright, set in concrete, with an end all-be-all example – you just have to know it.

bruce lee water, bruce lee be water, musings episode 31 lost, feeling lost, how to stop feeling lost, aimless, rego's life, rego's life blog, rego's life official site, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

The best way to explain it is this –

When you’re feeling lost and you finally embrace it – you’ll know you’ve embraced it, when at the very center of you – right above your solar plexus (which is slightly above your belly button) you feel calm…and at peace. You feel comfortable. Warm. Fuzzy. Relaxed. Ready to take charge – but ready to lounge. Ready to lunge – but ready to relax. Fired up – but steady and stable.

When you get to this point – you’re one step closer to discovering and unlocking your real self.

Maybe this post makes sense to you, maybe it doesn’t. Bottom line is, being lost, isn’t always a negative – but in fact an opportunity to find yourself. If there’s ever a time you’ve felt lost or aimless, comment below and let me know. I wanna know how you dealt with it, how it made you feel, and how you brought yourself back to feeling stabilized.

As always…

Stay awesome.
