I want you to live the happiest, healthiest lifestyle you can, discovering The Secret Energized You more and more. I want you to begin understanding the dynamics of health and lifestyle differently, so you can begin making different choices. Using the LifeTools in this and the upcoming few articles will bring your body, heart, mind and spirit actively into the process of discovering your true joy and vitality: The Secret Energized You.
We Are At Choice
We cannot choose all of what happens in our lives, nor can we control all of it. Some of us feel like victims of stress. When we are ready to stop being Stress Victims—when a healthy, energized, fulfilled life is more attractive than subtle victimhood—only then we begin to take responsibility for our reactions. It is then that we can start choosing how to spend our energy. We become Energy Managers rather than exhausted Stress Victims. We begin to discover the secret energized self. Will you now choose to pursue The Secret Energized You?
Goals and Possibilities

One of the most powerful things we can do for ourselves is to be open to positive possibilities in all aspects of life. For example:
- Are you willing to allow yourself to get well?
- Are you willing to allow yourself to achieve a promotion?
- Are you willing to allow yourself a massive upswing in income?
- Are you willing to allow yourself a happy love relationship?
Have you ever noticed that there are some small or simple things you want to have in life but you don’t seem to go after them? Some of them are so easy to get, yet you don’t go get them. Why not? For example, many people complain about the chair they sit in the most. They say it just doesn’t fit them, it’s too high, it’s too deep, it’s too hard or unsupportive here or there. You have been in these conversations and heard the speeches. Some people can go on for years claiming they want a different desk chair, dining chair, or recliner. Do these people act like they want to change the chair? Or do they act like people who want to talk about the chair and keep on talking about the chair? What is actually stopping the chair owner from changing the chair?
It is completely clear when we truly want something, we go after it. A morning coffee or mid-day lunch is an absolute goal, achieved daily and without fail, for many people. In larger decisions, we all know people who are sure of what they want. When their chair is not right, they try adjusting it and adding or subtracting pillows. If that doesn’t meet the requirement, then they go to stores that sell chairs in their price range and start auditioning chairs. Soon, they show you their wonderful new chair, beaming at how pleased they are with the both the comfort and the problem solution. These people are open to successful changes. The same goes for when they want to get a different car or home.
The classic formula for achieving something is:
- Set the goal.
- Set the approximate time frame and budget.
- Take action.
- Stay focused until complete.
- Enjoy your achievement.
So why do we so often fail to get to Step 3? I propose that there is a category of desire which is not a real desire. It’s the category of What We Want to Want (W4). If I only want-to-want my new chair, I will not take action. I am not willing to take action. Willingness is a necessary element for success. Inaction is not just a matter of laziness although it may appear so.

Getting Ready by Implanting Your Goal
Here is a short yet powerful method for you to try, in three steps.
- Write down your goal, such as: get comfortable chair, find someone new to date, get new job, increase income by $10K per year, get rid of scars, learn to program dreams, increase stamina 50%, lose fifteen pounds without them finding me again. Note how relatively willing you are to do anything about this. Do you want it? Or do you only wish you wanted it?
- Write down all your reasons for achieving this goal. What payoffs will you enjoy when the goal is achieved? Again note your relative willingness to take action. It’s higher now, isn’t it? If not, figure out for whom this goal was really set. Was it for your parents, was it for appearances, or was it for someone else? Now, if this goal wasn’t really your desire, consider setting it aside! Otherwise, proceed.
- Vividly picture yourself having achieved this goal, and feel exactly how good it is to have this item, condition, or achievement in your life.
Plan to repeat Steps 2 and 3 daily. Vision it! Check your relative willingness again. Wow! Are you ready now? Then it’s time to stop wanting and go take action! Repeat as desired. Enjoy!
Now remember: if the ancestor of every action is a thought, what thoughts are in your mind?
