Sources of Power: Are You Plugged In? Dallas Fitness Trainer Explains a Common Mistake


This article is not about smart phones, but let’s use them as an example. How much good is your phone when the battery is dead? Not much, right? In fact, I would say it is worse than having no phone at all. Why? Because It gives a false sense of security – such as believing you will get a call when someone tries to reach you, or “knowing” that you can use the map function on your phone to get from point B back to point A. Ever been there?

So where am I going with this? Well, you my friend are much the same way as your phone. That is, increasingly worthless without regularly being “PLUGGED IN” to your power sources. Stay unplugged too long, and you could be running with a false sense of security, close to dead.

Wouldn’t it be better to be:

-physically energized

-emotionally connected

-mentally focused

-spiritually aligned

Doesn’t sound too bad, does it? How do you get there? By being regularly and routinely plugged into your sources of personal power, which include the people and/or activities that give you strength, endurance, knowledge, instruction, motivation, inspiration, wisdom, and accountability.

If you get too busy to plug in, you’ll run out of power. It’s that simple.

So if you’ve reached a ceiling or even slid backwards physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually…chances are you have “unplugged” from the teachers, trainers, mentors, coaches, or books that brought you to your current level of success.

Sometimes we get satisfied before knowing true fulfillment. Always be reading, learning, listening, applying, testing, measuring, improving, and ever reaching for bigger and better things in all areas. So “plug in” often, and enjoy a long and meaningful life.
