Are Energy Vampires Sucking The Life Outa You?

Are you aware of the people holding you back from greatness?

It’s ok to admit it, we all have them…Over the past few months I’ve made a conscious decision to either cut off or distance myself from those that drag me down. It’s time to cut off the dead weight and get on with business!

We’ve all heard the saying “You Are The Average Of The 5 People You Spend The Most Time With” right? Well, I don’t know about you but when I hear that saying it makes me want to hit up Tony Robbins on Twitter and ask if he wants to hang for a beer!

But what about the people you’re already spending your time with?

Type #1 The Constant Complainers

There’s some people that just love to complain, it doesn’t matter if it’s a beautiful day and your on your way to the beach for a day of nothingness…They’ll still find something to complain about and make sure that you hear it.

Type #2 Gossip Queens

I don’t know about you but I find gossiping about other peoples lives to be the biggest waste of time known to man. It’s rude to gossip about others behind their back and even though it can give you a high it’s often short lived and not without its consequences.

Type #3 The Attention Seeker

There are a lot of people out there who think the known universe revolves around them and there lives. They’re the type where you could be stuck on a deserted island with them for 2 years and at the end of the ordeal, still won’t know the first thing about you.

Type #4 Poor Me

One of the most common draining personality types are those that always see the negative in every situation and use it as further proof that their life sucks and the universe is playing a cruel game against them.

Type #5 Please Hold My Hand  

The most frustrating type of person is the one that’ll have great ideas and seem to want to get things done but need that constant guidance or kick up the ass to actually do anything. Be very careful with this type of person as they wear a clever disguise and take up A LOT of your time.

The Art Of Losing Dead Weight

Recognized any of these personality types in your circle? There are plenty more but I was beginning to feel like a complainer and so I’ll just leave it there 😉

Now that we’ve identified the people in your life that could be holding you back it’s time to do something about it…

Option 1…If you’re like me and don’t like confrontation then the first thing you can do is slowly stop returning text messages, answering phone calls and accepting invitations to hang out. You don’t have to go cold turkey on them if you don’t want to, but slowly start pulling away and they should get the hint.

Option 2…If you’re the outspoken type and are able to speak your mind then simply tell them that you’re not going to be around as much over the next few weeks, you’re making some new lifestyle choices and you need to do it alone. If they ask why, then share your vision with them and let them know why you think they might not be the person you should be hanging around during this transition phase.

You never know, they may also be inspired to change and can come along with you! But be careful that they’re not just saying that to keep you close and then acting as they’ve always done.

Final Goodbye’s…

If you’re reading this and thinking to yourself…Hang on, I’ve had some of these people in my life for as long as I can remember and I love them! Well that’s fine, it’s perfect because it means you most likely have a strong bond with this person and the chances of you coming back into each others lives at a future date is high.

Having time away from someone can often be a great way for you both to discover new things about yourselves and achieve major personal growth. If you’re meant to find each other again in the future then you will, it’s only a matter of time.

Once you’ve made the decision to take your life to the next level, whatever that is for you…It means that you’ve had a glimpse into your potential future, tasted the energy accomplishing that goal will bring and decided to go for it. There are many things that can bring you back down and energy vampires are a huge part of that.

Staying consciously aware of and avoiding these types of people is one sure way of stepping into the reality you’ve envisioned and realising your goal.
