In the earlier posts this week, we’ve been looking at some meta-habits for high-level achievement. And an important one is creating the right energy in the environment around you.
Hopefully you’ve given yourself the gift of enjoying the Harry Potter book series. It’s a breathtaking dose of creative energy and brilliant fiction. But there are things in the books, which aren’t fiction, but reality.
And one of these is the Dementors…
"Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them... Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself... soulless and evil. You will be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life."
I bet you know some dementors. Maybe work with some. You could even be married to one.
The truth is, it can take you ten hours to build your mindset back to normal after spending just one hour with a negative person. So eliminate as many from your life as you can. And in the case of the ones you can’t completely eliminate, be mindful of the time you spend with them.
Surround yourself with positive people. People who love life, believe in you and want for your highest good. Create an empowering environment around yourself, because that is the nurturing ecosystem that achievement flourishes in!
