Recharge Your Life: Reconnect with Your Power Source for Success

Recharge Your Life: Reconnect with Your Power Source for Success

I woke up this morning and realized my puppy chewed up one of my charging cords for my phone and the cord that powers my laptop.

As I looked at the chewed cords, I realized my puppy had severed the connection that powers the source of what I need to do what I need to do. And I started thinking about how true this is for many of us in different areas of our lives. We are so disconnected from our source, walking around with an empty battery, trying to get full-time results.

Understanding the Power Source

Think about your laptop or phone. When it says low battery, you have a limited amount of time to make things happen. If you don't, the screen goes black. Our lives are the same way. We have a limited amount of time to execute on the things that get us closer to our dreams. But many of us are just sitting there, watching the battery drain, thinking, "I guess this is it."

I see two types of people: those who, when realizing time is running out, say, "Let me execute," and those who just give up and accept their fate. Which one are you? Do you go harder when you're running out of time, or do you just give up and watch your battery die?

Identify Your Source of Power

What is the source of power in your life? Is it your faith, family, passion, mission, or even an insecurity? What fuels you? It's essential to make sure your power source is solid. For me, it's faith that powers me as an individual. You need to know what powers you because walking around with an empty battery is not sustainable.

Imagine how much more powerful you could be if you operated at full capacity, with a full battery, fully rested, and with a clear mind. Identify your source of power, and you'll start operating at a higher level.

Protect Your Lifelines

Once you identify your power source, ask yourself, "What are the potential lifelines that can be severed to disconnect me from my source?" It could be procrastination, fear, or self-doubt. Distractions can keep you from being connected to what powers you. If you don't understand the lifelines of how you're powered, you won't understand what can be severed.

Think about your journey home. You know the streets it takes to get there. If one street is blocked, you know another way. Life is the same. You need to have alternative routes to stay connected to your power source.

Evaluate Your Current Capacity

Be honest with yourself. Are you operating with a full battery? Or do you have severed parts of your life, detours on the roads, broken cords, or uncharged batteries? What can you do differently? Maybe there's a different approach to fuel yourself, a different way to connect to what powers you.

Evaluate your current capacity and identify areas you need to fix. It could be relationships, routines, or habits. We're not as complex as we like to think. We all need rest and a clear mind to operate at full capacity.

Take Action to Reconnect

Finally, ask yourself, "What am I willing to do to get back to my source?" What are you willing to do to connect with the best part of you so that you can put your best out into the world? You need to be better for yourself, those around you, and whatever it is you're truly after in life.

You can't afford to keep wasting time. You can't afford for your battery to die. You can't afford to miss opportunities. Connect with your source, protect that cord, keep that lifeline going, and continue to shine bright and flourish.
