So what do you do when it enters your day-to-day life?
Whether it’s a ‘friend’ who is always negative, or a client who is sucking the life out of you or a colleague who thinks that everyone is out to get her…or him – you need to put the brakes on these relationships fast!
Why? Because where attention goes, energy flows.
So the more time you spend entertaining their stories or obsessing over what to do with these people, the less time you have: dreaming of all the exotic places you want to see before you’re 55, cooking up a plan for the yoga studio you want to open up or engaging in jaw-dropping conversations with people who actually inspire you.
Why else? Thoughts become things.
So you tell me – where do you want to focus your thoughts and attention?
I’ll give you a hint: Choose to focus on what you want. Choose to focus on your passions and dreams. Choose to focus on the juicy and exciting things that are happening in your life.
You deserve to be free from unnecessary drama and it’s time you put some boundaries between you and these destructive relationships. It’s time to have that break-up conversation.
And for those of you who feel a little nervous having these icky conversations, this is for you:
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasures you seek. Fear of the unknown is our greatest fear. Many of us would enter a tiger’s lair before we would enter a dark cave. While caution is a useful instinct, we lose many opportunities and much of the adventure of life if we fail to support the curious explorer within us.”
– Joseph Campbell
Your mission this week: Enter the cave and mark your territory. Have the conversations you need to with energy-sucking people and get on your way. Then, allow your wants, desires and dreams to fill your attention and intentions – the adventure of your life is waiting for you.
