Lean Quote: Spend Less Time With People Who Don’t Lift You Up

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"Energy leaks out of you if someone is draining you.  —  James Altucher

Think about the people in your life…do they give you emotional energy or take it away? If it’s the latter, keep your distance and you’ll be happier. If it’s the former, spend more time with them.

There is something extremely satisfying about helping those around you. It doesn’t have to be huge acts of service either. Something as simple as opening the door for someone or giving a stranger (or loved one) a genuine compliment has the ability to make a huge impact on their day…and yours.

Make it a goal to do something good for someone each day…and the smile on your face will be as big as the one on theirs.

Ultimately, the people in your life make all the difference in the person YOU are capable of being.

And life is just too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  When you free yourself from negative people, or simply the wrong people, you free yourself to be YOU – and being YOU is the only way to truly live.
