Editor’s Note: Resolution Idea: Find the Energy To Do Big Things

Published

on

[dropcap cap=W]hen I first read The Power of Full Engagement by Tony Schwartz and Jim Loehr two years ago, my first thought was: I can’t wait to tell 22,000 of my closest friends about it.[/dropcap]

But I did wait. Only two years later (and four additional books on the subject of personal energy), am I finally writing about it in INSTORE (Life Lift, page 74). While resolutions should be made any day or instant, having this appear in January makes sense.

The principles outlined in “Life Lift” aren’t for everybody. But it is the best program I can think of for someone who yearns to do big things, yet occasionally finds himself losing energy, seeking motivation and feeling like he wants to do anything aside from the thing that pays the bills.

For the past couple of years, I have been my own test subject. Though I believe in these principles, I can’t promise miracles. I haven’t written a book yet. I have gotten into shape … and fallen out of shape — a half-dozen times. My work has been good on occasion, less good on others. I’ve had more great ideas than usual, and the quality of my thinking feels higher. But most important, my life is happier when I’m living by these principles, and less happy when I’m not.

Read with an open mind. And if it doesn’t quite convince you, go back to the original sources and see if they can complete the job.

This year, above all, I wish you the energy to do big things.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
