Energy is primal. Your energy is your gift. How are you making best use of it?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In 1911, James Allen wrote - "Energy is a moral virtue, its opposing vice being laziness. As a virtue, it can be cultivated, and the lazy man can become energetic by forcibly arousing himself to exertion."

James Allen picked Energy as the 1st of his 'Eight Pillars of Prosperity'. 

Energy - that's the starting point of all achievement!

Educate your brain: don't just stuff it full of facts and demand it work harder - mould it so it does a good job of thinking.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you are thrilled with the way your mind and brain are serving you...terrific!

If you are not thrilled - take your mind to a better place...as one example, train your mind how to think more positively...another example, train your mind how to govern self-control.

If you think you are too busy then you are thinking wrong.

I favour abundance thinking over scarcity mindsets. 

If I decide I think "I'm too busy" then I have selected a scarcity mindset with respect to time, the most-precious commodity...or darned close to it.

So - I must not think "I'm too busy."

And - I must leave "I'm too busy" to the people who choose to embrace those scarcity mindsets. 

Making new errors proves you are innovative and learning from your errors proves you are open-minded and change-tolerant.

Change is a good thing...even if you disagree with that, you must agree there's a lot of it out there so one might as well get accustomed to it.

Fear of making mistakes is a real spirit killer.

Constructive criticism is an Oxymoron.

With just a little help, Creativity springs back to life.

If you point out 1 error the person may accept your feedback. If you point out 2 errors the person likely won't.

Think about it: what's your tolerance for criticism?

[As you consider that last question...Never mind what your logical mind is tricking you into thinking: what's your emotional tolerance for criticism?]

How much would the average person tolerate?

This person right in front of you - the one you are about to criticize - what's this person's tolerance?

Regardless - whatever you do - don't choose to deliver your criticism in doses of 5 or 4...or 3...or 2. [Stop at 1 or, better still, don't start.]

Small stuff is like a sponge. If you sweat over it long enough it becomes so big & heavy it drags you under.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When fear of failure prevails, it causes people to sweat the small stuff. 

Fear of Failure...one of the 6 Fears identified by Napoleon Hill in his classic 'Think and Grow Rich', (1937).
