Have you had moments in your life of breathtaking grace, dignity and brilliance? Moments when you chose to be your best, when in fact, it could have been easy for you to let 'rip' at the other person.
For example, you were forgiving when you could have been condemning, silent when you could have ridiculed, thoughtful instead of defensive, strong instead of needy.
These splendid moments, are when you are being the best possible version of you, and you have connected with your 'Source Energy'.
Unfortunately, many people spend a lot of their time disconnected from their full potential, and instead of those moments of grace described above, they more frequently spent time in the shadow of who they could be ... caught up in the game of control and winning - "I am right, they are wrong." Caught up in 'wars' with others over resources and differing agendas.
When disconnected, from your Source Energy, your world is extremely poor, both internally and externally. It is a world filled with judgment, criticism, control, blame, resistance, distrust, rivalry, denial, rejection.
Tune In To Your 'Source Energy'
Consistently tuned to your Source Energy, enables you to be as great as any of the master leaders who have walked before, such as Jesus, Buddha, Allah etc. Here is where your capability to be your best is unlimited and your life flows with much greater ease and grace.
Does it mean you are perfect? Of course not. Even our master teachers struggled with their emotions. But it does mean that more frequently you come from a place of grace.
Regularly tapping in to your 'Source Energy' means your life flows with much greater ease and grace. Here is where your capability to be your best is unlimited. It is the part of you that remembers that all any of us wants, is to be loved, appreciated and accepted. We each just have different ways of expressing these needs - some healthy, some unhealthy.
If You Are Focused on Making a Positive Dent in the Universe, then Make It Your Mission to Focus on Being the Best Version of Yourself
The hardest thing to do, when caught up in the day-to-day, is to remember that each person, (yourself included), is doing the very best they can in the moment. Certainly, as Don Miguel Ruiz teaches in "The Four Agreements" sometimes our best is better than at other times.
Making the choice to tap into the best of you, by tuning in to your 'Source Energy,' will help you to stop judging both yourself and others.
When you tune in to the best version of you, rather than going head-to-head with someone and being less than inspiring, you will probably start, in the moment of choice, to have an inner conversation with yourself.
The moment of choice is when you take a few seconds to have a quality inner conversation that helps you to bring about better results. For example, you may find you saying things to yourself like:
- "How would 'Source Energy' see this person now?"
- "The root cause of all over-reactions is fear. What fear could I be hitting for myself or this person? How do I minimize the impact of that fear?"
- "What choices do I need to make to help us work through this, so we both get out needs met?"
- "Am I more worried about looking good,than about doing what is best for each of us?"
As you make this choice, tuning frequently into your Source Energy, you cannot help but be a High Performance Leader who inspires and uplifts others. You will be much better equipped to foster a work environment, that enables each individual to use more of his or her capability, and be the best possible version of him or herself.
As a natural consequence the organization too will become higher performing. Are you ready to make it happen? Are you ready to make a positive dent in the universe?
This Breakthrough Reflection is an important one. It is an opportunity to begin to understand the Emotions/Energy/Feelings/Behaviors that regularly show up in your life and the impact they have.
