Stored energy is called potential energy. It is the energy of an item at rest. It is the energy of an idea before it grows to fruition. It is the mass of an object before it rolls down a hill. It does nothing just sits.
Potential energy is called potential because there is the possibility of movement, but no movement happens; therefore potential energy when left unchecked becomes stagnant energy and if left alone to fester may cause all sorts of potential problems.
Potential energy in human beings is our potential for growth. It becomes the process of making ideas, of coming up with big thoughts to do big things. Unfortunately potential means that those ideas and thoughts aren’t doing anything, they are only festering. This can cause a blockage and this kind of blockage keeps us from personal growth.
Newton’s first law of motion states that an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by another object. So, what potential energy needs is an outside force to get it flowing into kinetic energy. This is where our mental muscle gets used and we find out how much stamina we have for changing things. We mentally change our potential energy into moving energy with that polite kick in the rear, the other object acting upon the non-moving object. So, give yourself a polite kick in the butt. It will get you moving, flow your energy, push you into the second law of motion, and might even fulfill your greatest dreams, Have fun, don’t get hurt.
