In a recent sales workshop in Singapore, a top insurance agent told me she just did some "sping-cleaning" by letting go some of her team members who were draining energy from her. She explained that she had to continuously coax, push and persuade them to believe that opportunities abound in the insurance industry and anyone can succeed with the right mindset. In the end, she decided to let them go instead of using all her energy to transform their toxic attitude.
In business and life, we are bombarded by toxic instances all around us. Maybe it is a business deal gone bad, or office politics that destroys morale or simply a bad relationship. We must make a conscious choice to choose where we focus our energy on. Leadership speakers for business agree that investing energy into such toxic instances only serve to suck the life force and motivation out of you.
Instead, walk away from these "energy potholes" and focus your energy on things within your control. A good place to start is to begin taking care of your health by eating well and exercising. Saturate the mind with positive thoughts daily and strive to learn new things. Improve on those which you are already doing. Always remember, life happens FOR YOU, not TO YOU!
