Got Energy?

Got Energy?

Not just the kind of energy you get from food, or that’s generated in your cells as a result of your mitochondria; I’m talking about the source of that currency of life you know is there, but you can’t see or touch or in many cases even measure. It’s vital. And frankly, it’s not 100% explainable. Not, not just by me, but by not even the top scientists in the world can fully explain it.

Heck, even the Chinese, including all the masters, can’t fully explain “Chi,” but their five-thousand-year old culture knows it’s there. Tai Chi, Qi Gong are built on it.

You definitetly have some of it, but do you have enough of it? It’s vital that you do.

If you were to search Wikipedia on “vitalism”—the theory that the origin and phenomena of life are dependent on a vital principle distinct from purely chemical or physical forces, you would learn that it’s a discredited scientific hypothesis. You would also learn that despite being widely accepted within the mainstream scientific community, vitalism is no longer considered to be an adequate or complete description of reality.

Well, no one said that vital energy, was a “complete description of reality,” but a rather large part, to-say-the-least, yes.

That said, although rejected by modern science, [2] Vitalism has a long history in medical philosophies: and most traditional healing practices posit that disease results from some imbalance in vital forces.

Again, and I love the healing traditions, but sometimes they take things a bit too far. Energy imbalances are surely a part of the disease equation, but wholly responsible, no. There are food and nutrition, including sun and water, air quality, environmental quality, physical fitness, emotional fitness and psychological strength and so much more that go into disease states and more positively, human performance.

It’s why ISHAR (by Deepak Chopra’s Chopra Foundation) is there to not only explain Integrative Studies but to present the mountains of evidence so that time-tested and proven ideas like the vital principle can be weighted fairly. And that means the evidence that goes beyond purely chemical or physical forces.

Just ask an athlete, if their performance is based only on chemical or physical forces alone. Miss one night or even have one bad night of sleep ahead of a competition, and despite even the most rigorously planned and measured diet and exercise program, she’ll can be rendered relatively powerless compared to the competition.

It’s why Pete Carroll of the Super Bowl Seattle Seahawks said, “Sleep is a weapon, a key pillar to improving health and performance.

What is THAT energy?

It’s vital, and it can only be measured, practically by energy output, via wattage, like when a cyclist measures their power output. There are also some new and unique vital energy imaging tools out there, measuring the biofield, sure, but the word is still out on what’s learned from the results and how you can apply it in your life.

But neither of those measurement tools is needed to dramatically improve your vital power, your personal energy or personal power (the energy that powers your person).

Want to know the difference between something that’s alive and something that isn’t alive or isn’t alive anymore? It’s the vital energy that powers the cells. A dead person has cells, but no more power. And of course, inanimate objects, like rocks, don’t have cells.

This observation above is basic, yet it’s a profound and powerful one.

When you don’t have enough vital energy, everything in your life becomes just a little less alive, less animated until you eventually burn out usually by wearing your body out.

With every overexertion, you cease to function a little bit more and your

  1. Attitude suffers.
  2. Work suffers.
  3. The quality of life suffers.

And your relationships with your partner, your friends, and your family also suffer. Frankly, everything suffers because everything in your life depends on your energy, including your health, let alone your performance.

Life becomes a struggle, when you have to eat and drink your way through the day to keep going, to engage in extreme work ethic and more just to stimulate yourself.

Gone is that naturally occurring energy you once took for granted.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to go through life like that anymore.

The truth is, you have access to unlimited amounts of energy available to you on tap if you know how to access it. And it will give rise to every possible life-enhancing state of mind and high-performing emotion you can imagine from purpose to passion.

I have dedicated the last 13 years of my life to discovering this “vital energy” that a lot of people are talking about but few know how “to talk about” and not as an end in and of itself, which it is not.

I’ve discovered this source of renewable personal power that will enable you to live your life from a position of strength, as part of a fully integrated, balanced (regarding skills) and healthy (a given) “performance lifestyle” that acknowledges where you’re true power originates.

It did so as a sort of a “reluctant hero-type,”  for a variety of reasons. I was so driven and my life as a result, so unmanageable, I was suffering from constant fatigue. So I had to chip away at this over many years to ground myself in what was real. So this has been a quest of mine, since my teens, to understand this at the level that could transform not only my life but others as well.

I wanted to know, not only the physical science-based knowledge about personal energy but the non-physical studies that too often get overlooked because the scientific men can’t measure it. It is arguably more important and far more influential than the physical science itself.

This inquiry has meant years of reviewing countless books, reviewing the scientific literature, working with world-class sleep doctors and athletic coaches. Also, discussions with Ivy League researchers and, with an open-mind an emphasis on direct experience, and searching out the integrative yet non-mainstream studies (now becoming mainstream) such as on consciousness, flow, meditation, relaxation, meditation, Qigong and more.

And if there is anything that I would guarantee that will transform your life, without any question, it is personal (vital) energy renewal. Nothing compares and everything depends on it.

This has all been to provide a model for lifestyle design, based in what will enable you to overcome fatigue and increase your vital energy levels.

Yes, we get into nutrition and fitness and in a way that will help you maximize your energy levels. Sleep too; as this is foundational to any energy management solution; but in PERC, we also take the veil off of what has been one of the unknown subjects in the history of humankind.

Why has energy been so misunderstood? Well, it’s because it’s been too tied up with spirituality, alternative pseudoscience and talked down by scientists simply because it’s an inconvenient truth for their work that they can’t fully qualify.

But no longer is this the case. Science is coming around. The recent Sages and Scientists conference by the Chopra Foundation is proof of that.  The insights you’ll learn will make you respect and want to prioritize your sleep and more like never before.

So what do you need to learn to leave the recent you, who is feeling fatigued and exhausted and now start performing, looking and feeling like the much younger person you once were?

And how can you go from fatigued to filled with the vital energy you need to succeed every day?

That’s what my team and I will show you, and not through an overwhelming dump of information that sucks up even more of your power just to get through.

We will deliver the perfect combination of insight, education and application.

At the end of the day, that’s what’s going to work for you. Not shiny objects and science alone, it’s going to be what will plays out right in your life.

So if you’ve been struggling with fatigue, feeling tired all the time, have been misdiagnosed with adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia or a virus

Or, even if you’re already pretty darn healthy and looking for an advanced, cutting-edge, science-backed practice to take your energy, and subsequently your health and performance, not just to the next level but a whole new tier of human experience

Then you need the PERC. 

But first I want you to get connected with a 100% free webinar training from me, John Allen Mollenhauer “JAM,” founder of Performance Lifestyle, Inc.

It’s JAM-packed, (literally) with a complete understanding of the points I make above and so much more so that you understand the problem and can implement the solution.

It is 100% free and loaded with powerful strategies that are going to help you overcome fatigue and start building the foundation for a mind, body, and spirit filled with vital energy.

Oh, and one thing I need to you keep in mind; this isn’t the same old, keep-you-stuck type of stuff (what you’ll come to know as Tier 1 solutions) that leave you chasing your tail with information and ideas even the experts teaching them struggle with. Believe me, to borrow a phrase from Jake Steinfeld, “I’ve seen a lot famous people naked and they’ve got nothing on you.” 

Even the experts struggle with the litany of incomplete and tactical diet and exercise ideas devoid of the real juice such as telling you to sleep more, eat more veggies, cut your carbs, eliminate sugar, take supplements, etc. most of which are marketing-based, not science-based, let alone a complete solution.

PERC is based on the powerful and practical new science that meditators, athletes and other high performing people have been using for decades but has never-before-been-assembled for those who may not be into sports, the sciences or what is ultimately the key to it all – grounding in the ultimate source of energy that will blow your mind and dramatically, increase your energy.

Your Source of Renewable Personal Power

All of us at Performance Lifestyle hold one thing to be absolutely true—there is an inexhaustible source of energy that can renew your personal power over and over again. It gives us the power to create a truly extraordinary life largely of our choosing.

It’s at the foundation of who we really are, it’s actually easy to say that it is what we are, before thought pure intelligent energy. It’s giving rise to you, and all that you do and create right now and always.

Athletes, especially extreme athletes who depend on living “in the zone” or “in flow” have tapped into this source because they can’t afford to have paralysis by analysis at critical moments where indecision is a matter of life and death.

This access to an unlimited energy source, might sound ethereal to you right now, but it’s not in reality.

This is the secret to motivation and it is hidden in plain sight, well “insight,” because you can’t see or touch this energy, you can only renew it, balance your use of it, manage it, optimize your use of it, and focus it.

You are it.

It’s why in a performance lifestyle you need and want to get reconnected to your source of renewable personal power.

Technically, you never got divorced from it, but separated, most likely.

Today, people rely on coffee, extreme work ethic, drama, energy drinks, exercise, constant foods consumption (even healthy food) and more to stimulate this energy, but in the process, and it’s wearing their bodies our prematurely.

It’s why they are either feeling tired all the time, constantly fatigued if they are not moving, or simply without the natural surges of energy they’ve relied on earlier in life for those breakthrough periods of life as they live at in a chronically low grade fatigue state.

It’s why depression has risen to epic levels in the past 25 years.

For some reason, a reason we can’t quite put our finger on, we seem to have lost that spark, that vitality, that personal power to create and live the life we want. Instead we are prone to getting stuck in a gear we can’t get out of, especially when we’re tired and fatigued.

The energy surges we naturally relied on seem fewer and much farther apart as we can tend to feel like the lifeblood is being sucked right out of us in our relentlessly busy life.

And it is. If you are living on this planet in 2016 as a goal or success driven individual with a family, a career or business you run, and any aspirations to go beyond that in a recreational pursuit such as athletics or the arts or sciences— you run the risk of extreme tiredness, fatigue and premature burnout.  

With technology where it’s at, driving the way it is; personal energy it’s renewal and management is the primary requirement to live the extraordinary life we all have the ability to live today with quality is life, and not debit our longevity due to burnout.

This is why in a Performance Lifestyle that is both strategically balanced and healthy, by virtue of the fact that those of us living for performance become aware of and employ more lifestyle skills than the average person trying to live a “healthy” lifestyle ever does; we put especially high emphasis on renewing our personal energy so we can maintain the personal power to create that we love so much and never want to lose for long.

I can tell you that I do not enjoy life nearly as much when I feel constantly tired. I don’t mind being tired, or getting tired. But when it becomes constant, life can really sucks.

So in our upcoming course. PERC we are going to teach you the mechanics of personal energy renewal.

It’s not about relying on sleep alone anymore. That used to be enough along with even relatively sound nutrition and fitness; all are important but today we are aware of how to actually renew manage our energy proactively and it includes, but is by far not limited too, sleep, nutrition and fitness. Today the gaps have been filled and the context of a healthy, performance lifestyle has come clear.

Today we need this edge, because living outside our optimal energy range, we are all subject to consequences that are affecting us personally and many of us are attributing these effects to ourselves; we’re taking it personally as if something was wrong with us that we can’t keep going non stop 18 hours per day. 

Many challenges arise in our lives when we simply don’t have the personal power we once had to create anew and worse, when we can’t seem to get our energy back for one reason or another and it leaves you unmotivated. The secret to motivation is hidden in plain experience.

In PERC you can. In 60 days or less, we’re going to help you do just that.

In Performance Lifestyle training you deep dive into the lifestyle skills that ensure you live from the position of strength, but in PERC you will learn now to regain that strength.

We’re going to take you on a direct path that will get you out of the personal energy debt that is undermining your attempts to get and stay healthy, function and perform at the levels needed to achieve the higher levels of success you aspire to in whatever array of roles you play in life, from soccer mom to CEO.

It all starts with tapping the access you have always had to unlimited energy but weren’t really aware of to take advantage of proactively. You’ll learn how to renew, balance, manage, optimize and focus this access to energy too, which is soon-to-be “personal energy.”

Join us for a free webinar — How To Actually Stop Feeling Fatigued All The Time And Get Your Energy Back In 60 days or Less.

Are Your Debiting Your Longevity Prematurely?

Personal Energy is a fascinating subject. Energy is driving everything including your success; and, whether you achieve and sustain your success in a balanced and healthy way. If not you are debiting your longevity prematurely.

There is a legitimate balanced and healthy approach to achieving your ultimate goals in life, business and potentially a sport. It’s found when you take a healthy performance approach to living, and are both aware and educated on performance lifestyle principles, practices and strategy.

The classic mode of living out of balance and unhealthy to achieve success causes distress that most people pass off as the effects aging when it’s not; and it will no doubt drive you into the ground slowly, prematurely and cause struggle all along the way.

Here at Performance Lifestyle Inc., we are committed the former not the latter.

What’s so interesting about personal energy is that you can “easily” delude yourself about how much of it you actually have and this diminishes your personal power— you capacity to create the extraordinary life you want. 

Too many people today “debit their longevity” for short term performance gains. They seemingly recover from their chronic overexertion and unhealthy life and workstyle practices, and from time to time feel pretty good. But what they don’t see is the longer term cost their body including their brain.

When I / you ask people how they’re doing, they’ll say “great,” as if any other answer would be to admit weakness. To them that is not going to happen so they keep the cover up going.

But that cover up, is debiting their longevity. It’s most likely what is happening to many driven, high-performing, high-achieving people like you and me, who run the risk of weakening our bodies because we’re making claims about living a full capacity at the cost of our health, which no one else can see.

But you and me, we know better. Inside we don’t feel like we’re at full capacity. Each year, maybe each month, we feel a little less strong and eventually is does show. I know, it’s happened to me.

Now we all get older, sure, and over time our capacities are going to diminish. But for many of us, especially the driven among us, it’s happening at a faster pace than we want.

And it’s simply because we’re not renewing our personal energy in the way we need to, given, the demands on us in modern life.

It’s one of the core reasons why Performance Lifestyle Inc., is launching a new webinar called – How To Actually Stop Feeling Fatigued All The Time And Get Your Energy Back In 60 days or Less.

It’s not for the weak, it’s for the people who are strong because they can admit when they are feeling run down without it being a vulnerability. It’s for people who want to be stronger, to perform, look and feel like the younger person they recall not too far back.

This is what I wanted to, and it’s why I am leading the charge.

I’ve experience what happens when you put the PERC principles and practices into play in a strategy that works well for your life.

I can’t wait to share this transformational information with you free, next week.

It’s time to get smarter about personal energy.

The Biggest Secret to Motivation Is Hidden in Plain Experience

It’s been said, “the way we’re living and working isn’t working.” 

We know this as a result of understanding human motivation better; presenteeism is taking over absenteeism as the greatest bane on human performance and productivity. What this means is than we show up, but don’t or can’t really “show up.”

Translation: We’re simply spending too much energy each day, not recuperating enough and this directly affects our ability to function and perform sustainably “well” as moms and dads, career professionals, partners, business owners, amateur athletes, students etc. And if we do show up in a tired state based on sheer will and coffee, we end up debiting our longevity due to overexertion, lack of recovery and healing and the toll it takes on wearing out the body.

When you have a sense of feeling tired all the time or not being the personally powerful person you remember yourself to be, it’s not because you’re not motivated; it’s because you’re only partially motivated.

You’re body is missing the vital energy that gives it its strength.

Most people don’t realize that our recuperative needs are even greater and more immediate than our food and fitness needs.

That’s why personal energy renewal, including but not limited to sleep, rest and recovery… represents the core of a Performance Lifestyle management approach to achieving success, sustainably and quality of life.

When you learn personal energy renewal, as core to a lifestyle that supports you and what you’re up to in your life, you’ll get the psychic permission you need to care for your recuperative needs in ways you never have before — and you’ll begin learning how to do it strategically, systematically, and efficiently.

One of the KEY ways athletes optimize their lives to meet their goals is by effectively balancing their energy expenditures with recuperation and trust me, that’s just the the beginning; the most basic understanding of personal energy you’ll need to manage your energy, like a pro.

And considering just that one idea alone, there are nuances about it, which if you don’t understand, will leave you living still, the status quo. 

But most of us don’t live everyday with even that advantage. We live at a significant disadvantage — paying heavy interest on a growing energy debt as we overspend our energy each day. 

As a result, we lose health, productivity, quality of life, and personal performance. We lose brainpower and resilience despite all the motivational programs you’ve signed up for that are supposed to leave you successful and ecstatically happy. 

Without enough personal energy, your motivation will wane and this is the biggest secrets to sustained motivation and it’s hidden in plain site.

But, just as athletes do, you CAN learn to apply thought, planning, and skill to the process of balancing the amount of energy you generate with the amount of energy you re-generate and go way beyond that to boot. 

We’ll start you on this path in our our upcoming webinar. “How To Actually Stop Feeling Fatigued All The Time And Really Get Your Energy Back In 60 days.”

For starters…

  • How to avoid the three biggest mistakes most people make, that keeps them tired all the time
  • How nutrition and fitness alone will not help you to overcome exhaustion and fatigue
  • How to identify the key areas in your life that are causing energy drain
  • The two key principles you need to know that will change how you manage your energy forever
  • Access to a simple, yet powerful strategy to go from fatigued today to healthier, happier and more productive in as little as 60 days

 These are all the questions I’ll be answering on our upcoming webinar “How To Actually Stop Feeling Fatigued All The Time And Really Get Your Energy Back In 60 days.” 

We’ll keep you posted in the coming days.

If you want to learn more about PERC ahead the webinar, you can click on the link below. Seating and access to the course will be limited in the fall, so if this is important to you, stay tuned and or get signed up sooner than later.

I have an audio interview on the page that explains it pretty well.

PS: That’s more than just a sound-good salutation. It actually means something in a Performance Lifestyle. 😉 Keep it in mind.

You, an Athlete? Part 2

Historically, there’s only been one subset of the population who has learned to apply the power of lifestyle to their specialized, high-level goals—while nurturing superior levels of flowing, unencumbered, and directed physical performance.

That population segment is athletes—and while many of them could improve too, most still have something that most of us don’t. Read more

Performance Addiction

With the emphasis on wealth and beauty fitness etc in today’s society, it’s not surprising that many people demand too much of themselves.

For some people, this “do it all” drive is actually addictive — a phenomenon that’s known as “performance addiction.” Those who suffer from it believe that perfecting appearance and achieving status will secure the love and respect of others. Read more

The Evolution of Performance Training

Evolution has had its way with everything since the beginning of time, and the evolution of performance training is no exception.

Performance training is moving away from tactics-only methods for inducing a person or an organization of people to be more productive at almost any cost and toward enabling individuals and whole cultures with strategic lifestyle-based performance plans.

The result? Relatively balanced, healthy, sustained performance and even more productivity. Read more

Everyday Heroes Need Help

What is Superwoman’s power? (By the way, it’s the same for men.)

Like Clark, to discover her power, she has to discover who she really is. She has to go beyond the cultural story of the empowered superwoman who can have and do it all, and the personal story she’s living that might actually be her kryptonite. With pressure and cultural empowerment stories surrounding her, trying to leap it all in a single bound (or even multiple bounds) could easily lead to her feeling tired all the time.

Her kryptonite is the story she’s living into that’s burning her out. Aspiring to fulfill the superwoman persona is leading her into a mysterious downward spiral that is impacting her heart, her motivation, and her resolve.

Performance Lifestyle Podcast #1

Performance Addiction, it’s the dangerous new and arguably pervasive syndrome that can undermine your need for balance, let alone, ruin your life. It’s more common than you think and the reason is, it’s masked in our culture; often as a “good thing!” Can you imagine that, an addiction that drives people out of balance, in some cases non-stop and potentially into a dangerous downward spiral, is more often than not applauded, rewarded and reinforced in our modern world?

Well believe it, it’s happening and it might be happening in you. But before you even conjure up images in your mind of another invented problem that of course must have a solution, consider these questions.

  1. Have you ever had a story playing in your head that you were going to  look, feel and perform better than your mom or your dad; better than your friend, or a reigning champion, your boss, your enemy etc…?
  2. Have you ever compared yourself to others, and had thoughts of working, or working out harder than ever before to prove that you can come out on top or at least garner the same level of status, respect or admiration?

I ask these questions almost rhetorically, because the answers are likely yes. And if you’ve answered yes, then this is a podcast on the performance addicted life might seriously benefit you. By the way, I use the terms like “almost” and “likely” because while these human psychologies are common that does not mean that you are suffering from Performance Addiction.

What is performance addiction and how can you get free of the burnout it can create, especially as an entrepreneur, business owner and driven business professional?

Performance Addiction is a mental state where talented people mask their vulnerabilities through their capabilities.
