Lately and many times in the past I have been asked “Zackry where do you get all your energy from?” I get all of my energy from building power on a daily basis. My power is built on living in 4 dimensions of my life. These 4 dimensions, in this order, are my Body, Being, Balance, and Business. I have learned that in life you can talk all day about what you want to do, but in the end the only thing that matters is the results. Results don’t lie. They tell the true story. I have been coached to gamify my life in these 4 dimensions of Body, Being, Balance, and Business. Everyday I work to hit a “single” in each dimension. In my past I would focus on trying to hit a homerun vs. trying to be consistent in hitting a single on a daily basis. The odds of hitting a home run daily are far less than that of hitting a single. I have learned that if I can hit a single daily I can create a lot of power, or what some would call endless energy.
First dimension is starting with Body. Body is first because you have to have a fit body to be able to help others. If you are out of shape and not taking care of yourself, it is going to be very hard to take care of others. Each day I score myself a ½ point for finding a way to sweat for the day. Now some days I sweat more than others but the question is, did I sweat today? If so, I get a ½ point. The next Body score is Fuel at ½ point. Did I drink a green smoothie today? I will not go into the benefits of a green smoothie but they are countless and you can do the research.
Second dimension is Being. Being starts with a ½ point for meditation. Did I meditate today? This can be 1 minute to 10 minutes, your choice. The question is, did you take time to shut down the brain for a moment and take time for yourself? In taking this time it creates the space to stay out of “reaction” and not get caught up in “worldly” ways. The next ½ point in Being is reflection. Did I take a moment to reflect and journal? Some days my journal entries are long and others it can be short and sweet. Many of my journal entries are spurred by meditations, so it is very easy to journal if I meditate.
Third dimension is Balance. I score a ½ point in taking a moment to appreciate and love my queen, aka my wife. I do this by sending her a love note, a text, a video, and any other ways I can share my appreciation for her. The next ½ point in Balance is family. I take time for my son, brothers, mother, father, etc. I reach out or take a moment to check in, the same way I appreciate my wife.
Fourth dimension is Business. The first ½ point is to discover something new in business. That can be a podcast, an article, a coaching cd, a webinar, etc. The key is I discover something new. The next ½ point is to take that discovery and declare it. Meaning share what I have learned with others. This includes clients, referral partners, team members, family, etc. The key is to take what I have learned and share it with an individual or individuals.
I have learned that my power and energy is off the charts in the days I live in all 4 dimensions, and score a daily total of 4 points. Somedays are not perfect and I have to remember playing the simplest form of the game is key in completing all 4 dimensions. My morning routine knocks out most of the dimensions before my day even gets underway. I am always striving for a perfect score of 4 daily, and 28 at the end of the week and record my scores daily. There is no coincidence that my days are more productive, my relationships deeper, my reactions are more patient, my energy levels are high, and my results are off the charts on a week of scoring a 28. I challenge you to gamify your life, hit singles, live in all 4 dimensions, and get the results you truly desire and deserve. I love to share and help people with their personal journeys, so I welcome your calls and emails. Let’s play the game together and create an abundance of energy on a day to day basis. You deserve it. Until next time I thank you for being a part of my life.
Be well my friends,
