People aren’t ashamed to ask for help the way they once were. Life coaching, matchmaking, online dating, these aren’t weird or ugly words anymore and that, I think, goes hand-in-hand with the kind of quick-fix culture that we have, which is: You got a problem? We’ll fix it in a day. You want to be rich? We’ll do that in a month. You want a great body? Give me seven days and I’ll give you six-pack abs. We live in a culture populated by experts, leaders and gurus who claim to know the quickest route to getting you very compelling things. A lot of those people talk complete and utter BS. To a large extent, I’m not a fan of those things. I am in it, but I see myself as an outsider, strangely. I don’t associate with it.
The most important thing to me about energy is mental, not physical. By that I mean to say, the easiest way I've found to create sustained enthusiasm is to be absolutely head-over-hells in love with what you do. Noel Coward once said that "Work is more fun than fun." That sounds like the words of a crazy workaholic, (which I've been accused of before!) but that quote says so much to me. When you're in love with the work, the energy comes more naturally. You want to wake up in the morning to write more material, or to go on stage and give every shred of emotion you have. Coming up with and creating my material, getting the buzz from speaking to audiences across the country, working on my delivery so that every point hits home powerfully -- these are all things that are challenging but give me a bigger high than anything else. Since my job is public speaking, and I'm the only guy in the room talking for hours on end, I've never believed it's good enough for me to go up there and give a passive lecture and bore everyone to tears. I like to draw a lot on comedians and entertainers, those people who are compelling and passionate and able to maintain presence and go away making people feel emotionally changed for the experience. So I pour every bit of emotion I have into my talks, and afterwards (the part you don't see) is when I go home and crash, or just see friends and enjoy being the quiet one for the rest of the evening.
