How to build high energy to motivate any business.

It’s been a while since we’ve had the opportunity to experience a live concert, but just for a moment, think back to the last musician or band you saw perform. Are you there? Remember how you could sense the crowd around you? You could feel the music coursing through you, making your heart beat faster. That, my friends, is called Rock Concert Energy.

What if you could call up that energy at any time or any place? Wouldn’t it be amazing to have that enthusiasm, that passion, and that excitement whenever you wanted it? We’re not just talking about in your spare time. Nope. You can feel that way in your business.

Gaining Your Energy Back From The Pandemic

“I love my work, but being that enthusiastic on a daily basis? I don’t think so.”

Yes. Not only can you, but you must. The COVID-19 pandemic drained a great deal of our energy. However, as we begin to see light at the end of the tunnel, it’s become evident that energy is the number one element of success in 2021! If you want to not only survive, but thrive in business, you need to build up your energy and turn it on at any time. This is something that rock stars have known for years. They can’t command an audience or lead their band without energy. The same goes for business.

“I never feel very energetic. Is good energy just something you’re either born with or not?” 

Nope! Energy is a muscle like our biceps or our brains. When you work it out daily, it gets stronger. When you don’t, it gets weaker.

Put your consumer hat on for a few minutes. Imagine you’re at Universal Studios in Orlando and all the Disney characters are lacking energy. You’d regret spending any time or money there and it’d probably be the last time you went. In general, would you want to do business with someone who has low energy? No! So don’t be that person either. When you or your team has low energy, you become sluggish in your thinking and in your performance. This leads to business atrophy. You can’t lead or manage your team effectively without energy. You must be able to teach your team how to have high energy and inject it into them whenever needed.

6 Ways to Having High Energy in Business

 

  1. Watch who you surround yourself with. This doesn’t just pertain to your team at work; it’s also about the friends and family you see during your free time. Jim Rohn is well known for saying, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” This not only applies to success, but to energy as well. Ask yourself if you are spending time with energy producers or energy reducers.
  2. Change your state. In 2012, Amy Cuddy gave a TED talk entitled “Your body language may shape who you are.” In it, she discussed how 2 minutes of “power poses” each day can change how we feel about ourselves. This is because of something known as embodied cognition, meaning that our brain influences our body, and our body influences our brain. Don’t believe me (or Amy, for that matter)? Notice how you are feeling right now. If you’re in a good mood, feeling strong and healthy, you’re likely sitting upright with your shoulders back. However, if you’re feeling down today, you’re likely slouched over, shoulders slumped, head down. Now comes the fun part. Switch up your posture and notice what it does to your mood. You now have the power to control your energy at any moment.
  3. Delegate. Sometimes, a lack of energy is due to overwhelming, stress, and the feeling that you can’t possibly get everything done. Imagine if the lead singer of a band tried to play all of the instruments at once, in addition to singing. It would be a disaster! That’s what the band is for, which is where your team comes in. Delegate some of your responsibilities to others and lighten your load. Your energy will lift and recharge immediately.
  4. Get moving! Imagine a rock star trying to do air kicks on stage without some stretching and cardio in his off time. What you do outside of the office affects what you can do inside. When you leave work, do you plop down on the couch with a bowl of chips and the television remote or are you outside, living life? Exercise is important for you, no matter what that looks like for you. For some, it’s just a walk around the block after dinner. For others, it’s an hour or two at the gym before the rest of the world wakes up. Get moving and your energy will soar. Motion creates emotion.
  5. Take time to recharge. Even rock stars get off the stage every so often. You need time to be silent and tap into your intuition and your inner rock star. You need time to have fun away from the stresses at work and surrounded by the people you love.
  6. Bonus: Listen to motivational music. This is a no-brainer. Music motivates. Use it to jumpstart, fuel, or in addition to what you’re already doing. As a Rock Star Motivational Speaker, it’s the easiest way for me to create instant energy in a room. It will work for your team-building activities, team meetings, or creative jam sessions as I call them.

Imagine getting on a plane and you’re the only passenger. How weird is that! Some may think awesome, I can sleep! Others may find it too quiet or creepy. Your creator or whom ever you believe in made you to be social, to interact, to connect or to Love. That can’t happen when you are by yourself. When you think about the time we have on this earth compared to eternity, it’s pretty dog gone short. So why wouldn’t you take advantage of every opportunity possible to connect and love as many people as possible?

Well a lot of things get in our way. The two biggest: work and fear.  Fear of rejection, making a fool of ourselves, or just speaking out loud. But when you let these fears over take you, you lose control or lose out on opportunities. So if work is one of the factors that gets in your way of love and connection, and you are a driven person, you are probably short changing yourself and missing opportunities.

As a keynote speaker or keynote entertainer as some people call me, I have the privilege of traveling a lot.  Back in the day I was one of those guys who would find my seat, curl up to sleep, or dive into a movie or book. Can you relate? Until a few years ago when one of my coaches shared with me all of the opportunities I was missing out on by being a hermit.  The person sitting next to you could be your next gig, your next best friend. They may know someone you know, they may share knowledge that could change or help you in some way. They might even be your next love connection. Or vice versa, you might have information or a story that could be life changing for them. A pay it forward missed opportunity.  If you don’t fly a lot, then maybe you’re like this at work, a restaurant, club or other places where there are lots of people. While traveling to Orlando to speak at a conference, I was fortunate enough to receive my first class upgrade. Sitting next to me was a nice looking older woman who was giving off a really positive vibe. So I asked the standard ice-breaking question that we all know the answer to, “Where are you headed?”  “Orlando” she said with a smile. “Where are you from?”, I asked. “Atlanta. I’m heading to the World Championship of Volleyball to see my Granddaughters’ compete”. I didn’t know there was such a thing, but since I love to interview people, I started firing questions off to her. She had ordered a drink and was ready to talk. I could see how she lit up and I wanted to make sure that I was her best seat companion ever.

Before the flight was over I found out that she has been married 5 times, two of the same men twice. She had worked most of her life in the telecommunications business. She supported most of her husbands, had a son who became her priority and she was moving on through life. She asked if I have ever heard of a Rockin’ Blues player named “Joe Bonamassa. “I think I have”, I replied. “ My guitar playing buddy Mark Werner from Missouri is a fan of his.” She went on to say how she became a fan by hearing his music on a bus tour in another country and now follows him around the country. So I said, “You are a groupie”.  Her son retired at age 50 after inventing some sort of software and then selling it. Now he is a full time volleyball dad. I also found out that the Red Rock Amphitheater has 322 steps to the bottom.  I don’t know about you, but I love to here stories like this. It restores my faith in America and the American Dream.  Yes we have a lot of challenges in this country, but it is still the greatest country in the world. Challenges are what make us grow in life and at work, so if you want our country to grow, we must have them too. As I sit on a plane to Tampa with my awesome, amazing family on this 4th of July, I want to thank all the men and women of this country around the world that sacrifice daily for us to have this freedom and daily opportunities to succeed. Also to those who have given their lives. You have a duty, obligation and responsibility to your creator, (who ever you believe that to be). Personally. I choose to believe my creator is God and he wants us to be our best every day. “For me – it’s to be the BEST husband, father, Christian, and speaker I can possible be.” Do you do your best every day? Do you encourage your team and family to do their best everyday?  Do you choose love over fear?  Do you even know what your best is or what your goals are?

So where am I going with this for you?  If you make life or success your duty, obligation and responsibility you are at rock star status. Rock Stars play full out all the time. That’s how you win. That’s how you win big, sell out arenas. That’s how you win consistently. It’s a commitment. What plays a key factor in this for you is Love. You have to love what you do and who you do it with. If circumstances do not currently allow you to love what you do then love why you do it. Or whom you are doing it for.  That may mean paying it forward, trying to always be in a positive mood, helping out strangers, and yes talking to strangers on the plane.

Marie is one of my new friends and fans of Marvelless Mark. I told her about my book Opportunity Rocks and gave her a signed copy. I shared stories with her about my touring career, when I headlined at the Venetian at Las Vegas, and my current speaking tour. We exchanged information right as the wheels touched down.

Two weeks ago I received an email from Marie that brought a smile and tear to my eye at the same time. It went like this:

Marvelless Mark,

I read your book the next day.  It was incredible.  How can I order copies????  I have to say reading the book made me realize I was married to five men, not just because they were losers, but they had no goals in life.  I always had a goal, working and taking care of my son.  Although I no longer work, your book made me realize that although I embrace each day as a gift, I need some goals!!! Leaving Orlando, I was on my way to the airport and saw a helicopter and realized I have never flown in one.  As a result I am going to book a helicopter flight around Atlanta!!! I think you are now vacationing with your family in FL. Hope all is well with you and you have fun.  My phone number is 770-xxx-xxxx and I guess you can see my email is ……………….. Hoping you will send that photo you took of us.  Please let me know how to get books.   Marie

Marie purchased 7 books to share with friends, is not afraid to embrace life daily, set goals, play full out, and be her best everyday. Why ? Because she is a rock star. She gets it. Even at her age and being retired. Did I mention she was a two-time cancer survivor of lung and breast cancer?  She makes some of us younger peeps look like whining little babies. Thank you Marie for being you, sharing with me, and being a rock star role model to many.  Opportunity Rocks and you just proved it.
