Getting Rid of the Drama in Your Life
I know that everyone has drama in their lives—but what I’m talking about here is the drama that affects your business, stresses you out or keeps you from earning the dollars you could be earning—if only you had a way to “control” it.
I’m not a therapist (and I don’t play one on TV) but I’d like to share a couple of suggestions I have used in the past to help me “tune out” the drama when I need to—or tune back in when someone really (and I mean in serious trouble) needs me.
- Don’t get sucked into the drama – Your “drama queen or king” is looking for attention. It could be face to face. Social media or emails.
- Don’t offer suggestions or advice – Just politely listen, walk away and don’t think about it again.
- Are you part of the drama? – If it has nothing to do with you, ignore it and go about your own business.
I know it’s easier said than done.
I know you want to help out.
You probably sympathize with the person’s problems.
But ask yourself this question: If you are wrapped up in all this drama – which has nothing to do with you – what else could you be doing that will earn you more money, save you time or make YOU happy?
Learn to recognize the difference between helping someone who truly needs you versus those who are using drama to bring attention to themselves.
