Feeding Your Spirit or Sicking the Life Out of You?

Do you ever take the time to assess the things that feed your spirit versus the things that suck the life out of you?

Or do you just maneuver through life not paying attention to what impacts you one way or another?

Do you feel that you have no control over things anyway and life is just like living in a pinball machine?

There are people and events that feed our spirits and make us feel more energized. These are different for all of us.

Then there are people and events that suck the life out of us and make us feel drained.

We have control over how much we interact with each of these.

However, most of us don’t even consider our ability to control our situations and we just go where we think we are supposed to go or do what we think is expected of us without even considering if it impacts us positively or negatively.

Instead of blindly walking through life, pay attention to how you feel.

Put yourself in more places and with more people that/who feed your spirit and less with the ones that suck the life out of you.

How you feel is directly related to the people you hang out with and the places you choose to be.

Eliminating burnout, increasing performance, and living a happier life is dependent on our “feeding our spirit vs. sucking the life out of us ratio”.

Always ask yourself, “Is this feeding my spirit or sucking the life out of me?”

What does your ratio look like?

Are You a Life Scorekeeper?

Do you keep a tally of how often life goes in your favor versus how often it seems you don’t get the desired outcome you were looking for? When we don’t get what we want we can ruminate over life not being fair and things not going our way.
