How we find energy to do what we love every single day goes beyond sleeping, eating, and exercising well. Thrive Global recently asked business leaders from around the world what gives them energy, and their fixes range from helping others achieve their goals to being creative and getting outside. YouInc rounded up the best examples to inspire you to tap into your energy: 


“Helping others with their goals.” - David C. Bohnett, American technology entrepreneur and philanthropist 

“Conversation about the journeys other people are on — themselves or their organizations — and how those journeys can become most successful and most fulfilling. Reading and drawing connections across many fields.” - Niko Canner, Founder, Incandescent


“Being around good, smart, fun people. Also, being thrown into a problem or situation, and figuring it out.” - Simone Ross, Co-founder and Chief Program Officer of Techonomy Media Inc. 

“Accomplishment and progress.” - George Lesko, CIO at Blue Buffalo

“When I am doing something creative I feel inspired and energetic.” - Ayman Mohyeldin, Anchor, MSNBC


“Hot yoga. I’m addicted.” - Morra Aarons-Mele, Author; Founder of Women Online

“Nature. Beach, mountains, desert, all of it.” - Jim Stengel, President and CEO of The Jim Stengel Company

“Being active and stimulating my mind and body provide me energy. Whenever I feel like I’m going through the motions, I try to move, either by going for a run or a walk, or by taking on some intellectually stimulating endeavor, like reading a book. That way I can get my mind and body revved up.” - Steve Magness, Performance Coach, Author, and lecturer 

How we find energy comes down to one question: what do you get most excited about? Now, go out and make it happen.
