It’s Time To Run Away From “Energy Vampires”.

It’s Time To Run Away From “Energy Vampires”.

You are very much the result of the people you interact with.

These people can either lift you to a higher level or lead you down the mud of life.

Therefore, choose your friends carefully and develop positive relationships with them.

Make a list of potential models and mentors in different areas of your life.

Set out to learn from them through a variety of ways.

Avoid “energy vampires”.

These are people who will suck your energy and de-motivate youwith their words and actions.

And poison your mind and contaminate your soul and spirit.

“Energy vampires” also include well-intentioned friends who constantly do things that cause damaging consequences to you.

As a general rule of thumb, stay away from people:

– who draw you away from being a responsible and upright person,

– who draw you away from being your best self and prevent you from pursuing worthwhile dreams,

– who drag you down physically, mentally and emotionally, and

– who deter you from making a positive difference to the people and environment around you.

On the other hand, draw near to people:

– who help you learn, improve, and become a better person,

– who inspire and motivate you to serve a higher calling and fulfill a worthwhile cause,

– who lift you up with optimism, happiness and hope,

– who support you to resolve your downsides and strengthen your upsides.

Remember, the quality of your life is influenced by the quality of people you mix around with.

Consciously or unconsciously, you will be influenced to only attain the average standards of your friends’ collective achievements.

It’s time to do a spring cleaning of your circle of friendships.

Leave the negative ones behind and propel yourself forward with empowering relationships.

If “energy vampires” cross your path, don’t be a hero and try to be a vampire killer.

The best way to handle them is to “chow!” (run!).

Run as fast and as far away from them as possible.

If they are anywhere near you, start running NOW.
