Energy Drainers Attracts Prosperity
Whether you are a realtor seeking illusive financing for a
new client, a fulltime mother trying to make ends meet with less
money and less time or a corporate CEO looking for ways to slash
expenses while trying to prevent major layoffs, you are struggling
with how to find the unending possibilities in challenging times.
Everywhere you turn you hear stories about people giving up
and losing hope. According to research, entrepreneurs are losing
hope of staying in business and creating additional jobs faster in
this country than anywhere else in the world. New business ventures
in the US fell 24% compared to only 6% in the UK. Americans are
also losing hope of finding a job. Over 30 million are either
unemployed or underemployed and 60% of them have little or no hope
of finding work soon. What seems to be at stake is losing hope for
achieving the American dream – the unending possibilities of
realizing your dreams, accomplishing your goals and living a better
life, the foundation this country was built upon.
Where do you fit during these challenging times? Have you
lost hope and find yourself mired in “can’t do” or “won’t happen”
energy. Or are you in control and focused on a positive “can do” and
“make it happen” energy?
Most people do not realize that they are constantly
surrounded with energy that is either supportive and helpful or
negative and destructive. People without hope are surrounded with
energy drainers in the form of negative thoughts, things and people
that help keep them down or push them down further. Those that have
few energy drainers in their surroundings find it much easier to
search for and find those unending possibilities that help keep the
American dream alive and well, even in challenging times.
The most commonly
thought of energy drainers in one’s life would be a poor diet and
lack of exercise. Both can cause difficult obstacles to overcome.
The little known secret is that your thoughts plus the
things and people you surround yourself with also get in your way
and prevent you from accomplishing a task at hand, a long term goal
or living a life filled with prosperity and joy.
– are you always putting yourself down? Do you have stinking
thinking – you will never get a job, you don’t deserve a good
relationship, your house will never sell in this market, you’ll
be the next one laid off, you shouldn’t take a risk because you
will fail? The list can go on and on. Eliminate that endless
negative energy draining loop that tells you nothing good ever
happens to you and replace it with positive thoughts. Thoughts
are extremely powerful – what you think about is what you
create and becomes your future. You create prosperity and
abundance by thinking about what it feels like to have
prosperity and abundance not by thinking about what you don’t
have. Control your thoughts – your future is created first by
– eliminate, unclutter and organize your surroundings so a
positive flow of energy can meander throughout bringing with it
prosperity and joy. You cannot attract new things and
prosperity without making room for them. For example, if you
do not remove things from your closet that are old or don’t fit
well, you will not have room for new clothes. If you do not make
room in a business by uncluttering old thinking, you will not
have room for new thinking so you can look for unending
possibilities in challenging times.
associates, friends and family
– while this
may be a bit harder to do you also need to pay attention to the
people that surround you on a regular basis. Are they
supportive, encouraging and uplifting? If yes, they are
providing your positive energy. If some of them are constantly
complaining, discouraging you from moving forward or downright
depressing, re-arrange your schedule and spend much less time
with them. Fill up your newly found open time with reading or
listening to motivational, uplifting and inspiring books.
It really isn’t hard, time consuming or expensive to develop
attraction energy. In fact it takes only a little time and effort on
first 15 minutes of each day
focusing on what you wish to attract. This can be done through
prayer, meditation, journaling or creative visualization within
while your eyes are closed. The secret is in focusing daily on
your objective to manifest it or attract it to you. If you are a
realtor you may wish to focus energy on selling more homes and
having smooth closings.
your time not your calendar.
If you focus on your calendar and all of the things you have to
accomplish daily or weekly your focus will be very scattered and
you will accomplish much less. Make room on your calendar for
focusing on attracting what you seek instead of allowing your
calendar to dictate what you will do each day. A fulltime Mother
may wish to make a date with herself once a week to nurture and
care for herself as she is usually spending all of her time
caring for others.
to serve as a visual reminder of what you are in the process of
attracting. Use a bulletin board and push pins or your computer
desktop as your Vision Board. If it is a new job you wish to
attract, place on your board a number of pictures and ideal
income of what that new job will look like. If it is a home,
place the types and sizes of home, the neighborhood and even the
ideal price on your Vision Board. Your board is a creative
reminder for you as well as a tool that focuses energy on what
you wish to attract. A business leader might design a vision
board with encouraging quotes and create a verbal picture of
what he or she would like the future of the company to look
like. This keeps your employees involved and hopeful.
Eliminating energy drainers is a never ending task. You must
remain diligent to stay in control of your thinking and keep your
surroundings uncluttered to allow positive new energy to flow
throughout. Develop the habit of eliminating and organizing everyday
so it is not an overwhelming daunting task. The result of
eliminating energy drainers is more time and new energy that will
help you to find and take advantage of those unending possibilities
during challenging times.
