Let’s talk about one of my favorite subjects: sex. Or more importantly, sexual energy…
Before you can achieve greatness, you must be able to lift your thoughts above animal indulgence. But be wary of the opposite danger, trying to eliminate or repress your natural sexuality.
When you let your sexual thoughts control you, you lose all focus and purpose. When you kill them off, you deprive yourself of a powerful, natural drive.
As James Allen discusses in As a Man Thinketh and Napoleon Hill goes deeper in Think and Grow Rich!, the real secret is finding the right balance and channeling that sexual energy.
Celebrate the sexual energy you feel, but use it judiciously. Every time you orgasm, you actually deplete some of the chi (life force) in your body, which will then need to be replenished. So make it count, or explore other approaches, such as tantric techniques that allow you to orgasm without ejaculation, which preserves your chi.
In Hill’s research he found that most men didn’t reach high levels of success until their 50’s. He attributed that to it taking them that long to learn how to harness and channel their sexual energy for positive pursuits.
I believe many women have the opposite problem, as there has been so much negative programming about nudity, the body and sex for women, that many get programmed to repress their natural sexual desires.
Neither extreme is healthy. Finding the balance is what will create the best results for you. So how do you manage this is your life? What tips do you have for channeling sexual energy for achievement?
