Learning the truth about energy was the “missing link” that changed my life forever.
So this article tells you everything you need to know about using energy to your advantage with ADHD.
If you’re a regular reader of ADHD Boss, then you’re probably aware of the power of attention.
Now, it’s time for you to learn the truth about energy.
Let’s get started…
Everything on this planet consists of energy
Everything is energy in the most literal, truest sense possible.
E=mc^2 is one of the world’s most famous equations, which represents mass-energy equivalence.
Anything that has mass has an equivalent amount of energy, and the reverse is also true.
It can be said that where your attention flows, your energy flows.
Attention and energy are symbiotic
Attention is a modern day currency.
And energy is too...
What I’m going to do here is help you become aware of the power of your energy, and more importantly, help you “direct” your energy into your life’s roadmap and life’s vision.
This is going to drastically improve your odds of living the life you dream about.
Here’s what you need to know about energy:
There’s a powerful relationship between the intensity of energy you’re able to conjure, the quantity of energy you’re able to conjure and the direction in which you channel your energy.
Again, these three factors of energy are:
- Intensity of energy
- Quantity of energy
- Direction in which you channel your energy
I believe the #1 reason why my ADHD Boss website has been so successful over the years is because of these 3 factors of energy.
A first-timer can read ADHD Boss for two minutes and immediately sense the content on ADHD Boss feels powerful.
Some of the articles on ADHD Boss have been shared organically over 30,000 times.
People tend to agree the content on ADHD Boss resonates on a deep level.
As of today, there are only 150 blog posts published on ADHD Boss.
But over 1000+ hours worth of energy has been intensely channeled into producing the content on ADHD Boss.
Every blog post published on ADHD Boss packs more energy than just about any random article about ADHD on the internet.
All of this starts to make a lot more sense once you consider that energy can never be created or destroyed, only transferred.
This is called the Law of Conservation of Energy
You are always transferring energy whether you realize it or not.
Energy is constantly being exchanged.
Again, this is why energy is considered a form of currency, just like attention.
For example, let’s imagine you’re in charge of hiring for a certain position, and a pair of identical twins approach you, because the twins are both applying for the same job.
In this example, both twins are the same age, they obviously look identical, and they’re both equally qualified for the job. This is because both twins attended the same schools in the past, and even worked similar positions in the same companies. The twins are virtually identical as they approach you.
You can’t even tell them apart.
Twin #1 is very happy and cordial, and even compliments you on your clothing. She is nice, calm, friendly and well-mannered. You can sense that she’s had a great upbringing, and would perform well at work. She has a great attitude and she is a very good candidate for this job.
Twin #2 feels like she’s radiating energy as she walks towards you. You can sense that she’s extremely engaged with life, and is thrilled to be in your presence. She’s so excited and bubbly you feel compelled to ask her, “What’s the occasion? Is it your birthday or something?” This woman clearly has something special going on and she somehow manages to make you feel better when you’re around her.
So which of the twins do you hire?
Of course you would hire twin #2 because she is radiating energy.
Twin #2 is going to serve as a net positive to the entire ecosystem you’re in charge of.
Twin #2 will add the most value to your organization because she’s radiating energy, which means your clients will immediately like her. This will be great for drumming up business and keeping your business running smoothly.
This kind of situation happens all of the time at a subconscious level.
As in, you might not consciously be aware of why you like someone, but you feel the need to be around that person.
The people who win in life are able to conjure energy more intensely, in larger quantities, in the proper direction, for longer periods of time compared to anyone and everyone they’re competing against.
This is why Olympic athletes seem “crazy” to normal people. The average person doesn’t understand how someone is able to push their mind and body to the absolute limits of mental pain and suffering for multiple years at a time without receiving any kind of immediate reward or payout.
Then, when that same Olympic athlete goes on to win a bronze or gold medal at the Olympics, the general public suddenly feels enamored, and wishes they could experience what it’s like to win an Olympic medal too.
What most people don’t realize is there’s no gigantic reward to be had without a proportionally gigantic amount of energy expended.
The energy has to come from somewhere first.
The process of expending energy always has to come first.
This is why when you created your life’s roadmap, you focused on listing the individual processes that lead to your life’s vision.
Performing individual processes requires you to expend energy.
When you focus on expending enormous quantities of energy in the proper direction, you can create enormous change in your life very quickly.
Remember that anything with mass has an equivalent amount of energy and vise versa.
An Olympic-level award ceremony carries an enormous amount of energy, because the entire Universe is watching the award ceremony on TV, and Olympic athletes spend most of their lives competing for an Olympic medal.
Naturally, if you want to earn an Olympic medal, you have to exert an “Olympic amount of energy” into your sport of choice.
I’m not telling you that you have to become an Olympic athlete by the way…
This is just a high-level example of how you can intensely channel your energy for multiple years in exchange for the chance to win an Olympic medal ~ which is an unbelievable feat.
At the end of the day, Olympic athletes are masters of energy above all else and we can definitely learn from them.
If your life’s vision is to retire relatively young in South Florida, become a world-renowned artist, travel the world, or live a life of freedom, channeling Olympic-level energy into your life’s vision and roadmap is only going to help you rather than hurt you.
- Think of a time when you had a direct influence on someone mood or behavior based on your mood or behavior
- How were you able to influence this person’s mood or behavior? Was it your tone of voice, mood, mindset, direct energy transference, or something else entirely?
- Next time you speak with someone, try giving that person the absolute maximum amount of energy you can possibly give them
- Make a note of how the person responds to your energy (microexpressions, emotions, language etc.)
- Make a note of how you were able to influence that person’s real-world behavior using energy transference
Repeat this process a few more times with anyone you come into contact with
Note: This process works in the real-world and online…which is why you might think closely about energy transference if you decide to start an online business as part of your life’s roadmap
Why do individuals with ADHD feel the most mental pain ?
