Every thought you have has energy. Some of those thoughts are limiting, while others are empowering. Your limiting thoughts are comprised of catabolic energy - destructive energy that shows up as doubt, worry, guilt, regret, etc. Thoughts that motivate and inspire you are constructive and anabolic.
Over a hundred years ago, Albert Einstein
turned the scientific community upside
down, with a radical idea that everything
we see, hear, taste, touch, and smell is
not matter, but energy. Every thought you
have has energy. Some of those thoughts
are limiting, while others are empowering.
Your limiting thoughts are comprised of
catabolic energy - destructive energy that
shows up as doubt, worry, guilt, regret,
etc. Thoughts that motivate and inspire
you are constructive and anabolic.
Leadership is the ability to inspire
yourself, and others, and is determined
by your energetic state (the amount of
anabolic or catabolic energy present at
any given moment). As a CEO, your
leadership ability is predicated on your
level of energy.
Energy leadership is a process that helps
you become a better leader by raising
your level of awareness. Our system has
helped CEO’s and C-Suite executives
influence people with far less stress and
effort, by shifting them from a
destructive, catabolic, state to a
constructive anabolic state.
At a cellular level, catabolism refers to a
breakdown of complex molecules.
Limiting beliefs aren't just responsible for
hindering your leadership, they are
destroying your body. Research now
shows that fear, which results in stress,
releases hormones like cortisol that keep
your body in a sympathetic "fight or
Your sympathetic system is a great asset
when you need a flood of adrenaline to
get out of danger but is quite harmful to
the body when overly activated. Our
leadership assessment will pinpoint the
catabolic thoughts that have been
harming your body and hindering your
Anabolism is the opposite. It is growth
oriented. Anabolic energy refers to the
desires, and motivation that help you
engagement with your teams and with life.
A positive outlook is extremely anabolic.
Studies now show that optimists live lives
that are longer, happier and healthier than
those with views that are more
pessimistic. The field of neuroscience has
been churning out an unprecedented
amount of research showing the mind-
body connection and how susceptible our
bodies are to the power of our thoughts.
Science is now seeing how anabolic
thoughts heal our bodies, by shifting our
system from the sympathetic "fight or
flight" state to a parasympathetic healing
and recovery state. A positive attitude has
thoughts that are soothing, relaxing,
inspiring, motivating and uplifting. These
thoughts are directly responsible for
releasing the "happy state"
neurotransmitters like endorphins,
serotonin, oxytocin and dopamine. These
brain chemicals make you feel good and
are essential if you want to lead optimally.
The apex CEO leadership development
program uses the energy leadership
process to help you and your team lead
with more anabolic energy, and less
catabolic energy. A significant part of
that leadership development is executive
coaching; reframing perspectives that
are preventing you from performing
As you shift to a more anabolic state you
will be able to influence and engage
others with more energy and less stress.
Your team’s energy will rise and you will
become more productive, better at
solving problems and happier and more
connected with those around you.
We might think of them as just business
owners, CEO's or C-Level executives at
various levels, but leaders are visible
everywhere. EVERYONE is a leader
whether they believe it or not. If you
don't see yourself as a leader, then you
are limiting yourself and your
organization. The question is not are you
a leader, but how well do you lead?
Teams are not limited to business. All the
groups, organizations, and people around
you are teams, too. It's the colleagues
you work with and the family you go
home to. Your teams include all those
who are grouped within your many
circles of influence: your family, the
people you work with, the people at your
church. We each belong to many teams.
The greatest threat to you, your
environment, and our planet in general,
is fear. It's the Stream of
Unconsciousness that looks for: "What's
wrong?" It's the perfectionist in us that
sets unrealistic expectations for yourself
and others that inevitably leads to
frustration and disappointment. Many of
us spend too much time in the Stream of
Unconsciousness - with our family, our
colleagues, our relationships, and our
Eliminate the concept of perfection and
you can remove the number one obstacle
to your success and completely focus
your energy on the task at hand. Worry,
doubt, uncertainty and avoidance are not
just stifling your success, they are
polluting our entire economy. Studies
today show that more than 50 percent of
the people in our nation's workforce
would choose, if they could, to quit their
The Stream of Consciousness is its
constructive opposite. This stream is fed
by creative and positive thinking that
produces questions like "What's right,"
"What's the opportunity here," and "How
can we make this work?" This is the
process called Energy Leadership, and it
can shift the pressure and negativity in
your personal and professional life, as
well as in our communities and the
Energy Leadership can also help you
become more productive by adopting a
more constructive view of the
organizations you work for and the
people you live with. Energy Leadership
can help you become a more powerful
leader, one who is sophisticated, skilled,
highly aware, visionary and versatile.

immediately? Try the following:

Eliminate all of your expectations.

Meditate, pray or get involved in an
activity that can clear your mind (hobbies
and pastimes are perfect!)
Surround yourself with positive, uplifting
