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?
