SUNDAY STORIES | ENERGY & FOCUS

I didn't know what I was going to write about today until I accidentally took this selfie during my ride. The expression on my face is evidence of my steady focused comeback from a nasty case of COVID that had me off the bike for two weeks.


The picture made me think about the relationship between energy & focus and a quote I've repeated to myself since I was a little girl:


"ENERGY FLOWS WHERE YOUR FOCUS GOES"


The first time, I heard it from Tony Robbins in his Unlimited Power seminar when I was 10 years old. Not kidding. My mom has always been ahead of the curve. She worked with him when he first got started which had me taking and "working" his seminars for a couple of years with her. She believed this the concept too and it became a routine mantra in her apartment. It's crazy to me how much things can stick with you at a young age. Yeah, yeah I knows he's been controversial over the years. He was then too but I will say I've found that quote (and some other things he shared) to be really true throughout my life.


ENERGY FLOWS WHERE YOUR FOCUS GOES.


On the bike, energy of the eyes, heart and mind focused forward tells the front wheel and the hips where to go and what to do. Without that you're likely to end up hurt in a heap on the trail or road. Been there. Done that too many times. No thanks.


Off the bike, I talk about this theory often in work too including numerous times last week with staff and colleagues and friends. I'm looking at you Lester Love Oleg Lougheed Nick Knezevich Kilee Hughes Tiffany Castagno Nikolay Borisov Devon Miller Neves Jeremy Fetters Adam Poe Layne Werner Cynthia Vadacchino Tony Schiller Lawrence Nedwed Scott Becher Lisa Hyman


ENERGY FLOWS WHERE YOUR FOCUS GOES.


Think about it as it relates to your existence:

➡️ Are you focused on finding ways to win or not losing? There's a difference.

➡️ Are you moving from a place of abundance and strength, or fear and scarcity?

➡️ Are you reacting mentally and emotionally to someone or something that did you or someone you love wrong?

➡️ Are you intent on controlling what you can control?

➡️ Are you letting an undeserving person rent space in your head and heart for free?

➡️ Are you letting that undeserving person own their own shit while you keep it moving?


Like many things I talk about here, this is a practice and active self-awareness is key in the process.


So Leaders, as we get after it this week, let's keep this mantra handy and meet ourselves with grace in the process.


ENERGY FLOWS WHERE YOUR FOCUS GOES.
