088 - the truth about power plants


Now, I don't know about you (as you are probably much smarter than me), but when I used to think about power plants, I'd think that they were the place that energy was made. After all, they're the reason we have the fuel needed to help run all of our technology and our lives

Just lately, however, this whole notion and thought has been changed, as that's not really what power plants do... instead, they take energy from a particular source and transform/convert it into energy (quite possibly another form) for another source to use

They're not creating in a sense, they're transforming one thing into another - and the result is often of a GREATER & HIGHER output than the initial... it's like turning 1 lump of coal into enough energy to produce another 10 lumps...

Or picture placing $1 into a machine and getting $10 in return, pretty fantastic result...

And this got me thinking - aren't we, humans, and our bodies, power plants in themselves... we take energy from all of this different sources like food, the sun, water, other people, our environments; and we transform it into the energy we bring to the world

And the real power lies in the kind of energy we want to transform it into and emit into the world - will we choose for it to be positive and empowering energy and use it for the things that matter, or will we let this energy we create bring disempowering thoughts and negativity to our world and our environment...

We get to choose how we show up in the world. We get to choose how much energy we put into things and the intention we set for them... 

You get out what you put in - and sometimes you get much, much more...

How do you want to show up in your sport?
How do you want to show up in life?
What feelings do you want to have when you're at training, with your friends, when you take the field to compete?

Do you want to have fun... feel confident, invincible, and make it seem like pressure doesn't even exist? 

The good news is that you can


Actionable Tips + Questions:

  • How do you want to feel and show up in your life & sport? What are the 3 key feelings you want to exude - write them down...
  • Now identify can we begin to form a habit of generating these feeling multiple times a day - for me, it's setting an alarm for three times a day where the words that come up about the alarm are the three feelings I want to bring: playful/loving, creative, and grateful. You can set these alarms, you can write the words somewhere you'll see them multiple times a day - it's all about surrounding yourself with them and remembering to bring this feeling into your life
