The Killer E’s…

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric ByrnesLeave a Comment

When we think about virtues that we want to install into our lives, here are a few personality traits that have served as a pretty good blueprint while attempting to live a virtuous life:

  • Hard Working 
  • Accountable 
  • Trustworthy 
  • Kind 
  • Generous 
  • Loving 

When we work hard and are accountable for our actions, that typically will make us trustworthy, kind, generous and loving towards ourselves and others… 

But as I thought about it more, the realization set in that there are other virtues that get overlooked and happen to be just as relevant in our quest for the virtuous life… 

Ironically, when brainstorming the impact these other virtuous traits have had on my life, I all of a sudden realized they all happened to start with E… Can’t make this shit up. 🤷‍♂️

  • Energy 
  • Enthusiasm 
  • Efficiency 
  • Effectiveness 
  • Empathy 

When we wake each day and exude energy, we become life givers to each and everyone we come into contact with. The energy is what gives us the enthusiasm to be able to efficiently and effectively live our lives. When we take care of ourselves first, we then will have the empathy to better understand other individuals and the outside world.

We could probably spend the next 365 days going over positive virtuous traits we should all strive to possess, and if we are looking for a good place to start, the “KILLER E’s” ain’t a bad place. 👊
