Gratitude amplifies connection …
Gratitude is a powerful force!
Does my life – who I am, what I do and the manner in which I do it – inspire belief. Would my team pick up right where I left off because they KNOW I believe in them?”
When we truly believe, we emotionally and powerfully inspire!
Genuine care takes real connection.
When we truly believe in and care enough to know our people, even when others or they themselves don’t, we are performing the art of the Energizer!
When your team KNOWS they’re deeply believed in and you care enough to know and love them, they will engage their hearts and emotions into your vision and truly pick up right where you leave off.
What’s the difference? Energy’s not motivation although they’re related. Motivation can getus going, but energy (our internal driver) will keep us going.
Motivation’s external; energy’s internal.
Motivation’s someone else’s fire; energy’s our fire – it’s internal. Energy is inner fullness and personal power moving us in a focused direction. It’s “one’s capacity” to accomplish great things. Energy allows us to operate at peak performance every day from a place of abundance.
We can’t “put on” fullness. We’re either entering someone else’s life (spouse, child, team member, client, and so on) from a place of abundance or a place of emptiness. And when our energy’s lacking or empty, the experience will also be lacking.
We cannot give what we do not have.
Motivation can be equated to seeds planted in our minds that, if internalized, can ignite our very own energy. We all want to do better and give our best, but there are obstacles of unbelief, lack of internal passion, and ceaseless inner voices that hold us back. The seeds of motivation can enter our minds and help us to overcome the obstacles by adding faith, quieting the inner voices of fear and igniting our flame!
Motivation can get us going and show us what more effectual living looks like, but we must not rely on motivation. Why live catching motivational fires that blow by externally without igniting our own, down deep in our souls? Let’s ignite OUR energy, firing on all cylinders and becoming a daily powerhouse.
Life happens though, and when some trial or tough situation knocks the wind out of us, wisdom taps into encouraging sources of motivation and inspiration. There’s strength in numbers. Surrounding ourselves with people keeps us centered, connected and hopeful. Being knocked down is often the time we reevaluate our life’s purpose and determine what’s really important to us. So then, every time we’re feeling down-and-out, unmotivated, or stagnant, let’s consider:
What could YOU do every day that would literally add wood to YOUR internal fire? What beliefs could you overhaul that, when improved, would fuel your V8, twin-turbo engine? Motivation can help us imagine a better way, but let’s discover and develop our gifts, eliminate our fears, and map out a powerful vision for our life. Then, let us courageously go after OUR vision every single day!
This is your life; it’s your energy. Is your energy (your internal driver) ignited? Are you charging into your organization giddy about the contribution you get to make? Are you passionately engaging everything with everything you have? Are you building and bolstering your energy every day?
Let this article be the fuel of motivation that ignites YOUR mighty, internal engine of energy!

Bouncing & Pedaling Contribute to Energized Culture
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Team members bounce and pedal at work contributing to the thriving culture and accelerated growth of TwelveStone Health Partners, a premier provider of post-acute chronic care services based in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Large fitness balls are more than decoration. They’ve replaced several cubicle chairs of the pharmacy’s 150-person staff. Kerstyn M., a registered dietician for TwelveStone, reported her workflow, focus and fitness all increased because of the mobility and slight bounce she enjoys balancing on her fitness ball.
Jennifer B. works in the billing department of TwelveStone and enriches her day with an “Under Desk Elliptical” from FitDesk, a North Carolina company. Jennifer has two sons and staying strong to fully engage work and then go home with energy for them is important to her.

She said moving and investing in her health significantly impacts how she feels about her contribution at work and in life.
Tim Hooper, founder of Time4Energy, also based in Murfreesboro, has aligned with TwelveStone as they sponsor the national campaign, “Got Energy?” Tim speaks to teams about passionate, abundant and vibrant living and encourages small changes like those exemplified at TwelveStone. “We were made to move; when we move our bodies, we stimulate our minds,” Tim stated. “I was super encouraged by the modern, and wellness-centered philosophy of Twelve Stone when I toured their state-of-the-art facility.”
Tim noted numerous gym bags lying in team members’ offices. He watched staff members give cold, 17-ounze water bottles to visitors and patients. Chief executive officer, Shane Reeves, has labelled these, “living water.” Additionally, Lee Golden, chief pharmacy officer who miraculously fought and is rehabbing from a raging illness, was supplied a height-adjustable standing desk upon his return to TwelveStone.
Shane Reeves leads by example as an avid member of Murfreesboro Athletic Club; further, Reeves and Hooper share a monthly run discussing business. TwelveStone also sponsors a local, annual 5K race paying registration for team members.

“They’re not just hype; they truly encourage and invest in the well-being, fitness and energy of their people,” Tim reflected. “When you truly invest in team members’ wholeness, team members wholly invest into your business!”
Last year, TwelveStone Health Partners made its third evolution since their start as a Murfreesboro drug store in 1980. In 2016, Shane Reeves, launched their vision for national expansion. Just last month, Claritas Capital, a Nashville-based private equity firm, announced they will invest 3.35 million in TwelveStone’s expansion. This sort of investor-confidence is driven by leadership’s clear vision and a cutting-edge business plan; and, just as importantly, an energized, enthusiastic and engaged team of people to carry out that plan and propel the business forward!
Time4Energy, founded in 2013 and owned by Tim Hooper in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, transforms overwhelm, stress and burnout into energized, enthusiastic and engaged living through keynote speaking, workshops and coaching. Tim’s book, “Got Energy?” launched an international campaign partnering with corporations and communities to facilitate passionate, abundant and vibrant living. Website: http://timehooper.com
Have you heard the proverb, “The dew drop is the ant’s flood”?
It’s all about perspective!
Perspective is a powerful word! Synonymous to mindset and attitude, your perspective defines your point of view – the way you look at life.
Changing your perspective can literally change your life!
Out walking with the kids yesterday, we were just about to peak a small hill in the road when I shouted, “Grass!” Grass is our code-word for stepping off the asphalt into the grass and waiting for daddy due to an automobile sighting.
My son, eager to keep running, steps into the grass and quickly replies, “Daddy, there’s no car…may I run again?” As I caught up, we squatted there together in a “wait for it…wait for it” moment. Then, there it was coming over the rise – a car.
Why spend the time telling a simple story? Here’s why.
My six-foot height versus Jeremy’s three-and-half foot height made all the difference when it came to that hill.
Similarly, a slight change in perspective can shift your entire purpose and motivation in life.
A plane ride will change your perspective pretty quickly. Seriously! We spend thousands of dollars on a speck of real estate? Well, it’s all about how you look at things.
Everyone sees things at different perspectives! How is your perspective on life?
What meaning and purpose do you find in your life? Constantly seek to gain a little better perspective. Welcome different perspectives!
Change your perspective and literally change your entire life dynamic!
