Whats the first thing you think of when you hear the word ‘Energy’? Electricity? Positive? Negative? Good Juju? Bad Juju? Some of us use the phrase ‘You messing with my energy right now…’ Messing with my energy. We all go thru events that are sometimes draining of this ‘energy’. School, family issues, work, relationships to name a few. There might be a disagreement somewhere with someone, or overwhelmed at work, or overwhelmed with studies. It happens. Then there is the negative ‘energy’ that people throw at you when you are trying to accomplish something. You’re already overwhelmed with things, and these people just throw negative ‘energy’ at you. “Why are you studying? Come out for a change, you can study tomorrow!” “Why do you work so much, call out sick!” “What are you saving up for? You can’t take it with you! Just live in the moment!”
Now, let me just say that this isn’t directed to anyone in particular that I know. As a matter of fact, I have a pretty great support system around me. These are just a few things that have come up in conversation with people that are also trying to ‘get their life’. But how many times have we wanted to accomplish something and those around you still throw this ‘energy’ towards you? Yes, I could do what they say, OR…I could just do what I set out to do. I like to think that I stay positive with so many things going on, but there are people that only exert what I feel is negative ‘energy’.
People talking down to you, people that are not encouraging, people that complain about nothing, people that just do not raise spirits at all. When you are trying to meet your goals and accomplishments, you want to stay motivated and positive…and you can turn that negative energy into positive energy. We can make that negative energy the motivation that we need to achieve our goals. The only thing we have to do is not let it get to us. Don’t let it demotivate you, don’t let it discourage you, don’t let that negative Energy affect YOU!
