Uncommon Energy Source

Tiffany Eckhardt, Certified Life Coach helping women believe their best years are ahead.

The park memorial stated, “A man of uncommon energy.”

That park memorial sparked my own epitaph, or at least what I want to be known for.  Tiffany Eckhardt, a cockeye optimist who’s death found her living with uncommon energy.

What is uncommon energy?

The memorial also sparked my curiosity.  What is uncommon energy? 

Uncommon energy is actually a feeling.  Much like any other energy-producing feeling, such as motivated, fascinated, inspired, vigorous, dynamic, energetic, etc.  

Uncommon energy propels you to take massive action, embrace life with enthusiasm, contribute to your family and community with passion, and do what it takes to realize your dreams.  

Uncommon energy creates singular people who are willing to work against the grain.      

I know what your thinking, “sign me up!”  Just kidding.   

You may not aspire to uncommon energy, but have ever considered the idea that your feelings propel you or keep you stuck?  

Generate feelings 

There are two types of feelings; feelings that are energy-creating or feelings that are energy-depleting.  

As a certified life coach, I teach thoughts generate feelings.

Here is an example from my own life….

I was recently coached on thoughts that will help me build my business.  I often indulge in distractions; like surfing social media, projects around my house, etc. My coach helped me identify the thought that was actually causing my procrastination.  

My opposing thoughts: 

  • “I’m not doing enough” 
  • “I’m willing to do what ever it takes.”  

Can you feel the difference between those two thoughts?  

Thinking that I was not doing enough was defeating and depleted my energy.  The other thought creates a feeling of determination and fuels massive action.  

What thoughts would you need to think to generate energy-creating feelings?  

Try on some of these thoughts….

  • I am capable
  • I am in the best shape of my life
  • Doing what I love energizes me
  • I am making a tremendous contribution

How do you access feelings to create a life?

Take a moment to think about what you truly want to achieve in life. 

How do you believe you will feel when you achieve it?  The truth is you can actually feel that way right now. What thoughts would support your desire?  

If this concept blows your mind, you are not alone.  

It took me a while to wrap my head around the power of my thoughts.  When I made the decision to be known as a cockeyed optimist with uncommon energy, I knew that managing my mind is key to creating that outcome. Death will find my living!    

This is my life’s work.  I love helping women discover thoughts that are creating the life they have, and develop thoughts that will better serve them.  It sounds simple enough, but what I’ve learned is that most people have no idea why they are feeling stuck, frustrated, or unhappy.  They just need a little push to generate energy-creating thoughts.

Are You Living A Life Of Creative Abundance?

Is your goal to live a life of creative abundance?  Do you want to take creative control of your life?  I believe it’s worth taking the leap!

I admire people who ooze creativity.  It always appears to be effortless, natural, like they just ARE creative.  I’m learning that is not exactly the case. 

In Elizabeth Gilbert’s book Big Magic, she refers to ideas and creativity as mystics that come to you and offer the idea.  It is your job to say yes or no to the idea, understanding there will be a few “shit sandwiches” on the menu. In fact, according to Gilbert the reason we don’t move creatively ahead is always and only fear.

“Creative living is living a life that is driven more strongly by curiosity than fear.” ~Liz

A poet that Gilbert became intrigued with, once told a literature student, “Do you have the courage?  Do you have the courage to bring forth this work?  The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say YES!”

Do YOU invest for abundance?

I wholeheartedly support Elizabeth Gilbert’s theory that creativity is an energy that chooses us to co-create with.  Cuz it’s the TRUTH!  It is a gift from God.  

I’ve been mulling over a familiar Bible story in the book of Mathew.  As the story goes, a boss man (my words not the Bible’s) went out of town and left his servants in charge.  He gave “talents” to each according to their ability.  The first servant he gave five talents to invest, to the second servant he gave two talents to invest and to the third servant he gave one talent to invest. When the boss returned he found the first two servants had double their talents.  The third servant buried his talents because he feared loosing the one talent he had. 

Impressed, the boss commended the first two servants with, “Well done, good and faithful servant!  You have been faithful with few things; I will put you in charge of many things.  Come and share in my happiness!”  The boss reprimanded the third servant with, “You wicked, lazy servant… you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.”

The good and faithful servants will be given more talents to work with, while the third servant will be passed over next time the talents are divvied out.  

A verse on abundance: Mathew 25: 29

For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have abundance.  

I am not a Bible scholar.  I simply love that Jesus encourages people to invest their talents. He fully understands the fear and risks involved, as well as the abundance rewarded to the courageous.

It appears that the story is about a dude with a lot of money, entrusting his wealth to his servants.  I view this familiar parable as an example of our benevolent creator continually entrusting gifts and talents to humanity, taking delight in what is created with the gifts.  

When we are willing to invest, share and ship our talents, the talents multiple.  I wholeheartedly believe in abundance.  It is up to all of us to get curious about what we have to offer, develop our talents and be willing to share them. 

Sign me up for abundance!

I am pursuing a creative life.  Abundance is directly related to my willingness to invest in my gifts. I hope the gifts I share inspire and encourage you as well, but most importantly are a gift back to my creator.

The creative life isn’t effortless.  A meaningful, creative life that gives back requires courage.  The courageous receive abundance.

Fear is lazy.  I refuse to bury my talents or play small and will have the courage to continue to grow, and to keep moving towards becoming the best version of myself, feeling the vibration of fear, knowing it will pass.  

Are you curious?

I invite you to get curious about your talents.  Have you given into fear and succumbed to living a small life?  Or are you looking for ideas to invest your talents? 

As Jack Gilbert put it, “The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say YES!”

I would love to connect with all you badass women who are ready to take creative control of your life!  Let’s shake up this world with our abundant talents!!!!
