Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway.”
Dr. Robert Anthony
What kind of energy are you walking around with? Is it energy that is positive, motivating, inspiring, creative and passion filled? If your energy is positive then you are living with what is known as anabolic energy, the kind of energy that gives you the desire to put in 100% to the work you are doing. The other kind of energy is catabolic. It is destructive and can rob you of the desire to do what your heart is telling you to do.
So, what is anabolic and catabolic energy and why does it matter. First of all it matters because when our lives are filled with catabolic energy, negative energy, we falter, we sputter, we at times fall victim to our thoughts and mutter words that are destructive to self and others. When someone is complacent, apathetic, whining, worrying, anxiety filled, and living as a victim that is an energy robbing state. You probably know people who just drain the energy right out of you. What would you feel like if you could identify and live in a more positively energetic day? What would it mean to you to have a lot less catabolic energy in your life?
Think about it – it would mean greater success, significance, confidence, passion, commitment, creativity, joy, peace, and happiness in your life and who wouldn’t want more of that?
Next time – anabolic energy, and how that can impact you.
