Are You An Energizer?
There are two types of people who you need to look for in this world. There are energizers, and there are drainers. You can usually tell what type a person is when you first meet them, but then again you may have never thought about this concept, and so this article will enlighten you on the people in your daily life. Let me explain.
There are some people who make you feel on top of the world. Just their mere presence brightens your day, and a conversation with them is like a breath of fresh air. They usually give more than they take, and they contribute to the lives of those around them in a meaningful way. They empower people, and never seek to bring others down. They promote harmony in human relationships, and always seek out the good in others. You love to be around these people, mostly because they lift you to their level, and leave you feeling as if you can conquer the world. These are those people who I like to call "energizers", because they have so much positive energy that it overflows to those people who they spend time with. People often gravitate toward energizers because of their optimistic and uplifting view on life. Because of this, energizers are often well above average in their work, relationships, and life in general.
Then there are "drainers". These are the people who find joy and comfort in bringing people down. They will gossip, bicker, and leave you feeling less happy, less confident, and less ambitious than you were before their presence. A conversation with these people is like a dark, cold room. There is no substance to their character, and they will often choose contention over harmony, simply because it's what they're used to, and it's comfortable. Because of this, they push away potentially beautiful relationships, and they struggle to even maintain their current relationships. They are called "drainers" because they literally drain people of positive energy, and replace it with negativity.
So what does one do with this information? I want to seriously encourage you to look at the people in your life and determine who are the energizers and who are the drainers. Once you've done this, the next step is simple; spend more time with energizers, and less time with drainers. I can promise you that if you'll spend more time with energizers and less with drainers then your life will immediately be transformed. You'll feel better about yourself, you'll be more productive, and you'll be more optimistic about the future. The person who decides to spend time with energizers will be excited to face the day, no matter what obstacle is on its way.
But there is another side to this. You must analyze yourself. No life change can be effective without first spending time looking at your own actions. Are you an energizer? If not, why not? Energizers are attracted to their kind, so if you really don't have any energizers in your life then it may be the case that you are a drainer. If so, immediately start the process of turning that around. Energizers change peoples lives, while drainers hinder peoples lives. Which do you want to be, and which do you want to be around? The choice is simple, and I want to encourage you to use this information to guide you on your journey to an incredibly abundant life.
