Changing the Energy

My father had an interesting career. For much of his career he was known as an ‘efficiency expert’. He was skilled in observing how things were being done and he would make suggestions for better use of Energy and time. His suggestions were intended to improve production, quality, and safety. Most often the ‘workers’ were not eager to try new ways and were often a bit contra! People are not often eager to make change.
I must confess that as a child, I was a bit resistant to change. Needless, to say, my father found this to be unacceptable! On the occasion, when I would demonstrate some resistance he would say, “If you would take half that Energy that you are putting into resistance, and put it into doing it, you would be done by now!”
Wow! That makes much sense to me, today. It is a fact that everything we do and everything we create is a result of Energy ‘invested’. When we make something, we invest Energy into the making of it. When the Energy is positive and contributing toward our intended result, we achieve our results in less time!
Energy is expressed by Words and Actions. When our Words and Actions are positive and contributing towards our intended result, we often get our results sooner. Often, we achieve our results easier as well. Negative Energy, negative Words and Actions don’t make things any better, nor do they contribute to our intended results.
If there is something which you want to achieve and enjoy, make sure that your words and actions are contributing to your desires.
How might things be if when there is a suggestion for doing something new, you might say, “That’s interesting, I will give it a try” I began to think of what kinds of things people might want to be doing more of…• Better Health• Movement, Exercise, Yoga• Meditation, Guided Meditations like from Meditation has been shown to reduce stress. Guided Meditations are a great introduction to Meditation.• Reading• Better Communication• More Kindness• Volunteerism• Play
Make sure that your Words and Actions support your intentions.
REMEMBER: “If you would take half that Energy that you are putting into resistance and put it into doing it, you would be done by now!”
Thanks Dad.
