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?
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.
