Hilltop Moments- What Makes You Stronger!
Today I’m going to show you how going through your troubles can actually prepare you for some of your greatest achievements.
A while back I had the pleasure of watching my favorite NFL football team go to and win the super bowl. I'll never forget the interview that one of the reporters asked Drew Brees (The quarterback for the New Orleans saints) what it was like to win the game that would take them to the super bowl. In short he said its great! Tonight we will celebrate but tomorrow we have to focus on the super bowl. Low and behold the saints went to Miami that year and beat the colts for a super bowl victory.

Don’t Manage Time- Do This Instead
Don’t Manage Time. Manage What You Do With Your Time:
Today I want to talk to you about managing your energy instead of your time. Now it turns out that you can’t really manage time. Time is what it is. You have 24 hours in a day; no more no less. So you can’t really manage that. What you can do is manage what you do with your time. Since everything that we do requires energy, it’s vital that we take a look at our daily activities to make sure that we manage those things effectively so we can have the strength and enthusiasm for sustained physical and mental activity.
In the book the power of full engagement the author states that our thoughts, feelings and behaviors have energy consequences. In other words, everything that you are going to think today, feel today and do today will either add energy to your life or take energy away.
