Your energy is how you are known by others and yourself. You like yourself more when you function with high energy. Others gravitate toward you because you own your confidence, caring, and accomplishments by the decision to be a person of positive, focused energy.

Positive energy characteristics
People of focused energy display a positive attitude, optimism and are action oriented. They are happy, creative, intentional, and produce high levels of results. At the same time, they are friendly and interested in the welfare of others.
Manage your energy rather than your time
Time is an exact resource. Energy is totally different in appearance. Define your high energy, most productive part of each day. Focus on completing your most important tasks during your prime time. Be aware that multitasking can undermine productivity. Set your standards for what you would like to accomplish during this time block. Identify distractions and set a plan to avoid all items that change your focus. Make your energy work for you.
Apply energy to your values and purpose
Value yourself enough to live your values and accomplish your purpose. Be consistent with your daily goals and activities so that they represent what you value most.
