You can't give what you don't have
You need to make you your first priority so you can give more, be more and do more for others. – Darren Hardy, Success Magazine
This is the energy mantra – you have to be strong, healthy, vital, and energetic if you want to do all those great things you have inside you. Jim Rohn said it best – "You take care of you for me and I will take care of me for you." You need to make YOU your first priority so that you can be, do, and give.
I've been blessed with lots of energy, and like most people who have a gift they take for granted, I squandered it with abandon. In my late 40's I realized I didn't have a bottomless supply of it. I confess, I was a little smug about my good health and high energy, and this was a humbling experience. I got sick! I got tired. I had some "health problems". But alas, I grew up in a family where putting yourself first was seen as selfish and self-centered I'm learning late, but better late than – well, "late".
Success starts with self care. You have to take out the calendar and schedule you first. Schedule your exercise, healthy meals, sleep, mental relaxation and recreation (that means FUN!) regularly. Then and only then you go down the rest of your priority list and start adding the family, career and social obligations.
I'm gathering tips from experts (and some of my own) for the Ignite Your Energy Challenge during the month of June. Summer starts officially so what better time? Enjoy yourself, get out and work out, treat yourself to some of the delicious fresh foods of summer and get involved with you. You can't give what you don't have. Let's do this together and learn from each other. Send me your energy tips and we'll include them on my website.
