DRAMA! We have all had some kind of drama in our life, right? And not the kind that we like to watch on the television. We all have or have had money drama, emotional drama, relationship drama, work drama, health drama and the list goes on, right?
We create drama in our lives when we’re unclear about our desires OR when we know our desires but don’t feel like we have the power to make them happen.:
I started working with Eryka about 6 months ago and I have to admit, there was DRAMA! The drama was because I was unclear about what I wanted in my personal and business life. Don’t get me wrong, I am happily married and wouldn’t change that. My business seemed to be a roller coaster. And we won’t even talk about health issues…
Financial drama: Are you in debt and just living paycheck to paycheck? That is STRESSFUL and it drains your energy. When your energy is drained it is hard to focus on other things like creating and awesome future.
Relationship drama: This goes from constant fighting with family and friends to cheating on your partner to having secrets like an addition whether it is drugs, alcohol, sex or shopping. Have you built a wall because of past bad relationships and won’t let anyone in? Relationship drama is stress that keeps you from seeing past the moment and into the future.
Work drama: Okay, it is Monday – did you dread coming to work? Have you not finished a project that was due? Have you been stealing from the company – maybe it is just spending too much time on social media or maybe it is taking office supplies. Maybe it is talking about your coworkers. Whatever the drama, it is draining the LIFE out of you. I mean we spend about 1/3 of our life at work right?
There is a lot more things that cause drama or stress but it would take more than 1 blog to talk about it, right? Erkya is always reminding me of this:
Because the problem with living a draining-drama filled life is that when we uselessly expend our energy on stuff that doesn’t serve us, it means that we’re not spending it on things that do.
With her help (and a few others) I have found the desires and dreams that I want to GO FOR and a result the draining drama in my life has decreased, in favor of the magical drama of exploring new things and living up to my highest potential.
Here are the three majorly important keys for ending the draining drama that Eryka taught me:
1. Know your desires. If you don’t know what you want and need at your core, how can you go after them? ONLY YOU know your desires – NO ONE else!!!
2. Know you are worthy of going after them.
3. Take action.
Not sure what your desires are, try this simple exercise:
Take 15 minutes out of your life and contemplate. Get a journal or some paper and answer some questions and do some deep thinking
- What are you passionate about?
- What you would do if you had no limits, if you had all the money and time in the world? Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?
- Think about yourself when you’re nice and old. What are 5 major things things in life you are really, really proud of yourself for having done…or what will you regret if you don’t do?
Thank you Eryka for helping me to find my passion!
Giving of myself so others smile!!
Share your passion with us. Let’s CELEBRATE together the end of draining drama.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
