Americans are obsessed with being busy. In fact, for most of us, busyness has become something of a status symbol – a sign that we are in demand and thus important. Unfortunately, this constant state of busyness eventually takes its toll on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Our busy chaotic lifestyles may eventually lead to burnout and can even block access to the very sources of energy we need to energize our lives.
The way we live and work not only rob us of our health and put a strain on our time and energy resources, it blocks our access to our most essential sources of energy, leaving us feeling physically, mentally, and emotionally drained. In order to energize our lives and live vibrantly, energetically, and enthusiastically we need to have a big vision for our lives and to live and work in such a way that contributes to our big vision.
Negative energy is like a black hole. It slowly sucks you in and before you know it, you’re struggling to breathe. Like dark matter, negative energy is impenetrable by light and cannot sustain life.
Negative people are filled with dark matter. Most of them have been living in the abyss of despair for so long, not only have they given up on their dreams, they are also quick to convince you of the futility of yours. They also try their best to discourage you from thinking big or having any grand ambition for your life. I call these kinds of people “energy suckers” because their negativity slowly sucks the life out of you.
Recommitting and re-engaging to a plan of action without knowing why you’re moving in that direction is the same as being on a treadmill that is going nowhere.
