Your Spiritual RPE Pt. II

Now that we have a little background to RPE how does it apply?

Studies have shown us that we all have different bent factors. Our minds are the same but captures things differently and understand things differently. That’s why studying must be at your perceived excretion and effort.

What does that mean?

Example: RPE 4 to 6: Moderate intensity. You can talk in short spurts, your breathing is more labored, but you are still working within your comfort zone. RPE 7 to 9: Hard intensity. You can barely talk, you are breathing heavily, and you are working outside your comfort zone. RPE 10: Max-effort intensity.

What Is RPE?

Put simply, rating of perceived exertion is a tool used to measure the intensity of your workout or physical activity by tuning into your body. RPE is based on how hard you feel like your body is working, considering physical sensations such as increased heart rate, breathing rate, sweating, and muscle fatigue, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Note to Ponder: God collaborates with you not against you. You draw unto Him he draws unto you. You give little you get little. You study much you get much wisdom.

RPE Scale

RPE 1 to 2: DON’T LET OTHERS DEFINE YOU. The world will ask you who you are, if you do not know, the world will define you.

Don’t force who you are not. To live a good life, you need to represent a life which represents you!

RPE 3: UNDERSTAND YOUR PASSIONS. A person who has never passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them. Whenever we give up, leave behind, and forget too much, there is always the danger that the things we have neglected will return with added force. A good way to discover your real passions is: Practice journaling, getting to know yourself better. Being more forgiving with yourself.


RPE 4: GIVE UP YOUR ADDICTIONS. Every form of addiction is bad, no matter what it is “Lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily beset us. Have the courage to face reality. We sometimes have ideal views of life and become fixated in them that we avoid the truth by finding ways to escape them. Have the courage to face reality. Rather make a plan to change the situation.

RPE 5 to 6: BE HONEST ABOUT YOUR CAPABILITIES. You are what you do, not what you say you will do. The Power of life and death is in your tongue We are almost never who we pretend to be, what we do speaks for oneself much louder than anything we communicate verbally.

RPE 7 to 8: MAKE STRENGTHS FROM YOUR WEAKNESSES. I regret many follies which sprang from trial and tribulation; but without them I would not have become who I am. Any weakness can prove to be a strength if it is explored in the right direction. We all have a destiny tied to our personality and we should follow it wherever it takes us. The most important thing is to live in harmony with our self and that is a continuous process of realization and try not to criticize your weakness and rather see how it can help you in other areas of your life.

RPE 9: FIND A CONNECTION TO THE INFINITE. The decisive question for man is to understand his connection to God. When our life is understood in the context of something bigger than ourselves, our life gets more meaning. Your connection to God through Christ will boost your desires to reach your potential.

RPE 10: MAKE TIME FOR DEEP REFLECTION. You must be alone to find out what sustain you, when you find that you cannot support yourself. You will the find solitude in Christ. Realizing your potential is a journey.

He's not done yet. Selah! Part III Coming.
