Staying energised no matter what means doing things that have meaning. I have a list a couple of pages long—drawing, reading, exercising are some of the highlights—and when I say things that have meaning, they're things that light me up.
They're things I love doing but there's things on a deeper level: something has meaning when it means I'm being honest about what I'm doing, it has meaning when I'm growing, meaning when I face something about myself that I was hiding.
The bottom line is you'll work out what staying energised means for you.
So, carrots and no chocolate. The pain is real! Not eating what I love is a metaphorical reminder that I've got what it takes. I think, just get it out of the house so I'm surrounded by things I love that give me meaning.
I get asked a lot what it is that still drives me. I'm not driven anymore to take things to the next level, but to know myself and be more authentically me. That's not easy to do, to get the mask off and be real, which is risky.
Going deeper on how to serve and help get us all closer to genuine compassion and inclusion drives me.
And anything that pushes me means staying energised no matter what. There's no easy ride. No quick fix. But there are great results.
