Have you ever heard of the term, “Fear of Success?” Basically, it says that someone can fear the results or consequences of achievement so much that they actually inadvertently sabotage themselves from obtaining it.
It seems weird. However, it has everything to do with their beliefs and the energy they consequently bring. This article will explain how your energy can make or break your success. Here we go.
Your energy alters your state.
There’s an interesting study from 2015 that found this stat: “Watching just three minutes of negative news in the morning makes viewers 27 percent more likely to report having a bad day six to eight hours later.”
Meanwhile, those who watched transformative stories in the morning reported having a good day 88 percent of the time.
It’s clear then that your inputs and surroundings affect your energy, mood and the way you carry yourself for an extended duration of time. In this case, it was most often the entire day.
You’ll notice this impact if you’ve ever been in a room and someone else has walked in, and you’ve felt the entire energy of the room change. It can either uplift the entire room, or it can bring the entire room down.
The same is true for you and your energy throughout the day. Therefore, your energy can either be your superpower, or it can be the very thing that holds you back.
How to maintain positive energy.
Positive energy comes from having positive things around you and doing positive things with your life. However, when you know yourself and your mission, it becomes very hard for outside influences to affect your state.
Some practical ideas include meditation, exercising, avoiding negative news, taking time to relax and enjoying the smaller things in life.
