Create Your Own Source of Renewable Energy!

People ask me how I get my high energy and positive attitude all the time. I genuinely LOVE what I do. Creating the workflows, organizational structures and developing the “How” of any business is my happy factor.
My joy comes from helping people understand how their own business works, what options they have and how much control they actually do have over what can be done. This allows those people to go on and be profitable after me! Letting myself get excited for them, with them, even about them if they can’t see it yet is how I stay energized. What I do feeds my own personal energy bank.
Stepping into what makes me happy absolutely has led to my successes. I get excited to learn about different business and you can physically see the wheels turning in my brain while I jump out of my skin to give you insight and ideas on how to resolve issues or challenges in your company’s growth. Being in that moment of my personal joy is infectious. People talk about how they enjoy working with my company not just because of the results but because they can feel the genuine excitement for the possibilities in their future. This makes THEM excited.
Then they tell referrals that they know someone that can both offer solutions AND help connect them to the excitement of their own company growing. So I get to start all over with a new business client creating more process and developing organizational structures that can deliver on more dreams and happiness. And I don’t hide my joy.
That might be the secret. I literally mock myself because I KNOW most business owners don’t clap their hands with excitement about reviewing data on task completion times or metrics on referral sources. I get the humor and am in on my own nerd loving joke. I DO love the numbers (the Power is in the numbers my friends!).
Have you ever been with someone that is so excited by what they are talking about they make you care? From car mechanics to atttorneys, find a person that loves what they do and you will listen intently to details on how engine pistons work or why we should negotiate for the extra space. We listen because we want that energy and engagement for ourselves!
Reality check. My energy and positive attitude is NOT “on” all the time. Ask my loving (and mercifully patient) family! However, I find that making the choice to purposefully tap into the happy factor of why I do, what I do propels me into more situations where I can do MORE of what I do…do you follow my meaning?
What makes you happy? This is SELDOM something that will suck your energy dry or leave you feeling unfulfilled. If you are a business owner, you have every reason to tie your role around the actions that make you happy. This will energize you and allow you to continue to lead a team and grow a client base that wants to tap into your joy. Then you will have your own source of renewable energy!
I’d love to know what you personally get energized doing within your own business. Let me know!
