Positive Habit 2: Identify and Eliminate what drains you

This is probably one of the most difficult part as something that drains you might be just as important to you. 

And yet, if you want to live a positive and effective life, you must do just that. If people or things bug you and led you to a negative path, it is time to learn to say "NO" to either them or things.

What drains you could be the little things as well as the big things. It could be your poor relationship, or driving in the rush hour traffic, a messy car or house, a crazy and dishonest boss or even simply that you dislike your job. These sort of things need to be avoided and eliminated if possible, because these are a huge drain on your energy's level.

When you do that, you will be amazed at how much lighter you will feel and the ability to create space for something new and effective.

How do you identify and eliminate all these? 

Start by making a list of 5 things that are draining you from these 3 areas:

  • Work
  • Home
  • Relationships
Be specific about what is it you are putting up with, what and who's bugging you as well as what you're neglecting and putting off. Then ask that simple question:

Are you willing to put an end to all these distractions...if your answer is yes, then start by eliminating them, one by one. It will be a huge and overwhelming task initially, but overtime, you will find that this is what you need to do to enjoy the lighter load....
