I am part of a 50+ person group text thread and I was being celebrated for hitting a professional goal that I have been working on for more than a year. Here’s how the convo went down…
G: Congratulations, Kafi
Me: Thanks for the love and support.
C: Nice job, Kafi. What did you learn in the process?
- LOWLIGHT: Getting to my goal took longer than I thought.
- INSIGHT: Procrastination is just an excuse for not taking action
- HIGHLIGHT: The juices are flowing, so I’m going to keep going!
C: Nice work, Thanks for sharing. Give The World More Kafi!
It’s the last five words that blew my mind! Give The World More Kafi!
The missing comma (between “More” and my name) was intentional and provided even more impact.
This got me thinking – how do you give the world more (of yourself) when you feel like you are all tapped out?
It’s no secret that we all have those days where we feel like we are maxed out and can’t get out of bed, it’s like trying to squeeze more juice out of a dry lemon.
Life tends to be hard, heavy and overwhelming for sure!
But we all know those people who despite the odds, are positive, upbeat and doing amazing things in the world.
They have inexhaustible energy and enthusiasm for life. It’s like they are plugged into an invisible power source that the rest of us can only dream of tapping into.
You had that energy at one point, right?
Well, what the heck happened?
Life, work, family, health – you name it, one or more of these things have probably played a factor in negatively affecting your vibe over the last few weeks, months or perhaps years!
But what if you regained that energy; that zest for life?
Better still, what if you were lit up and on fire about how you feel and the work you are doing?
Imagine the possibilities. Imagine the impact. Imagine the ripple effect.
Energy is the force that drives us forward and having more energy is the switch that will help you flip fatigue to fire.
Energy is what gets us out of bed in the morning and keeps us going all day long. And it’s not just physical energy – it’s mental and emotional energy.
It has taken me a few days to embrace the invitation to “Give the world more” – my personal commitment is to do it in a way that is healthy and empowering to those I serve.
What about you?
If you had an endless supply of energy to give the world more of you, what would you give?
