You’re A Leader, Not A Genie: How To Identify & Stop Others From Draining You With Their Issues
There’s no way around it and no way I can advise you on this without sounding too forthcoming but this is one of those topics I cannot provide value with without being extremely direct.
There comes a time in your life where you need to become almost brutal when it comes to taking care of yourself and protect your own energy and this is one of them.
If you’re in the network marketing/home based business industry, we’re in the BUSINESS of helping others. With that being said, you’re a mentor/support line, not someone’s lifeline.
It is CRUCIAL to also protect your own energy and practice self care so that you can continue to be in a position to help others movers & shakers & be mentally and emotionally balanced.
Everyone has, at one time or another, major problems, issues, debts or struggles..and that’s OK! We’re human. What you want to do is address these, connect and understand others and aim to plug people into a resolution and see ACTION afterward. Constant venting without action/results becomes a vicious cycle of TOXIC dumping and is the equivalent to being stuck on a hamster wheel. You have to know WHEN to see the signs and how to jump off the emotional rollercoaster before you get sucked in, too!
What’s the balance? How can you tell it’s coming? How can you be genuinely caring but also not be dragged down yourself? What are nice ways to *block* this? How can I turn this into a positive outcome?
