“The world belongs to the energetic.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I turned 37 today and it was possibly the best birthday yet. I took my son Lucas to his first wrestling tournament. Being in his spot before, I could sense his nervousness as he stepped on the scale for the first time to weigh in. My awareness kicked in, I realized I was giving off nervous energy and he was following my lead. Studying self-development daily over the past six years, the self-talk kicked in. “My energy is contagious. He will feed off my energy. Okay I’ve got this” I said to myself.... “I am calm and confident. I am calm and happy.” So I got down on his level, looked him in the eyes, smiled, and said “You are going to have so much fun today buddy, this is going to be so great, I am so proud of you.” I study this all for a reason; yes to help me get to be the person and leader I want to be, but also to help others- my son and daughters included.

As we kick off the new year, I think a great habit to develop is to be aware of our energy. Ralph Waldo Emerson said “The world belongs to the energetic.” We all have been there I think, or at least I have, where we are down in the dumps, moping around, and just getting through the day. I call that default mode. Become aware of that, choose your energy, fake it if you have too, shoulders up high, smile, say hello, give compliments to your co-workers, increase your action, get focused on your goals and level up!

Starting today, when you feel in default mode, first become aware, then take a deep breath, focus on your goal, and tell yourself “I’ve got this!” Then go to work!

PS If you see me around the office in default mode, I ask that you check me, I am grateful for the accountability.
