How to Muster Up Energy When You Are Exhausted

Do you know the capacity of your “gas tank”: How much potential energy you have stored in your internal “reservoirs”? Very often we complain: “I have no energy left. I am spent and exhausted. I am falling from my feet. I am overwhelmed.” While that may be true, and while we all need and deserve downtime to relax and recharge our “batteries,” we don’t want to fall into the trap of resignation and despair. We certainly don’t want to underestimate our strengths and never realize the great potential we contain. So before you gripe and write yourself off with your feelings of inadequacy, ask yourself: “Do I even know what I am capable of before I quit?”

But then comes the big question: How do you dig deeper and call upon your energy reserves when you are feeling drained? How can you access strength when you don’t have strength?

Hmmmm…..This class was just for men?
Lol, I am a woman, are you suggesting I open a Talmud and try to understand it? Commitment and exertion to WHAT???? Commitment and exertion I think women know all about. As for committing to a cause, project or job outside the home, the opportunity and financial backing need to be there to make it possible. Not fulfilling ones potential, or missing ones calling can result in a soul’s exhaustion, and is unavoidable if opportunity doesn’t present itself, if money not available, or any type of support, etc. Commitment and exertion to a difficult situation for many years can result in exhaustion actually.
