Do not allow the "Passion Vampires" to suck the life, hope, dream, and passion from you!
In order to avoid these vampires, let me define a few of them:
Poor Self - Esteem
Hurts and Wounds from the Past
I think you get the point. If you think about how many times a day, if you allow them, these type of vampires will absolutely suck the joy and life out of you. Crushing your dreams, breaking your heart, leaving you weak and defeated.
But, here's the good news...you can absolutely overcome and avoid these passion vampires. Here are a few ways to do this:
Staying Positive. This doesn't mean you are oblivious or live with your head in the sand. It simply means that you choose to be positive.
Right Attitude. Your attitude will absolutely determine your altitude. Another way of saying this is that having a right attitude will give you a new perspective.
Choose your Friends Carefully. It doesn't matter how old or young you are. The people you choose to associate with will determine a lot about your life. Be around people who are encouraging.
Seek Help and Counseling. You do not have to be a product of your past wounds. If you are carrying those around, seek someone to talk to you and get the tools you need to overcome them.
Exercise. Take time, regularly, and take care of your body. When you do this, your body will take care of you. It's amazing how your thoughts and attitude change with a good workout.
Believe that your Best Days are Still Ahead...and do Something About it!
One final thought. Don't be a "Passion Vampire" to someone else! Be the type of worker, friend, boss, spouse, that you would want alongside of you. It's a pretty incredible feeling and experience when you help someone else live with Passion!
