Where is your energy?
If your energy is catabolic (lethargy, defiance) then a little bit of that energy is very powerfully negative. In other words a little bit of those types of energy robs you of the energy you need to be innovative, creative, …
Small amounts of negative energy drains you of the energy you need to really to be as successful as you’d like to be. Negative energy slows you down – you worry, you fret, you get anxious, you doubt your abilities, you think rather than act, you can’t decide, you wallow and procrastinate. Knowing what level of negative energy you have can be the knowledge that you have been looking for, the knowledge that will set you free.
“Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.”

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Energy, what is it? Energy can be considered the ability to lead others or a quantity of a force that can be exerted to create a change. Our thoughts could be considered energy, energy that is either creative or destructive. The mental energy to create positive thoughts releases chemicals into the body that are building. Thoughts that are negative release hormones into the body that are destructive.
Positive energy is considered anabolic energy or building energy that increases joy, happiness and success in life. Anabolic energy shows up as a force for helping others, having compassion and wanting to serve in some capacity. This building energy is the kind of energy that enables positive change to take place and the ability to take advantage of and create opportunities.
At the highest levels this anabolic energy allows one to synthesize information from multiple sources and create a unified view. At high levels anabolic energy shows up as confidence with a desire to create “everyone wins” outcomes. People who operate with a high level of anabolic energy are seen as mostly non-judgmental and willingly acknowledge others contributions.
People with high levels of what is called Level 4 (Compassion) and Level 5 (Opportunity) energy are strong leaders who are driven in a compassionate manner. Considering that all people are leaders in some form or another it would seem that developing the capacity to increase anabolic energy would be a great benefit for improving leadership ability.
What level of energy are you operating at?
