Our ability to go about harnessing energy, coupled with a focused attention to details, makes all the difference when it comes to implementing a life lived aligned to our values and life purpose.
At times we might be obliged to go against popular thinking, possibly even having to defend our position from those wishing for a majority consensus. Harnessing energy in such instances is easy when we are clear about our intentions and comfortable with our choices.
Harnessing energy is helped by our determination to live life on our terms, without harming others of course. Seeking to please everyone was perhaps our approach in the past, but in all probability we quickly discovered this brought few positive results to everyone concerned, including ourselves.
The source of our energy is most likely unclear. Some could argue it is the desire we hold in our heart, others may wish to believe in an external provider. Whatever its provenance, it is there to be used. Harnessing energy is therefore also a question of believing it exists for us to tap into.
In closing, it should be noted on those occasions we have been successful in reaching a goal our actions invariably took on a dimension beyond our control. Momentum moved us forward once we had set the direction by creating the goal and harnessing energy to power our subsequent efforts.
