Gunk of Low-Energy Living: tolerations

Imagine I ask you to name 3 results you want to create in your life. You name them.

Then suppose I ask, What might get in the way of achieving those 3 results?

Even before you tell me, I know the answer.

Let’s try it right now.

First, you have do your part and reveal those 3 results you want to create in your life.

  • Maybe you want to lose weight, get healthier, and be more active.
  • Maybe you hope to get that promotion, earn more money, and save for a house downpayment.
  • Or maybe you want to tackle the clutter in your life—clean out the basement, sort through the attic, and deal with your overstuffed closets, once and for all.

No matter what 3 results you desire, I’ll bet tolerations are playing a role in preventing you from achieving them. Or—at the very least—achieving them with ease.

Because that’s what tolerations do. They create friction and resistance. They keep you bogged down and distracted.

Tolerations are energy vampires, the gunk of life, holes in your personal success cup.

When you’re leaking energy on toxic relationships, a cluttered house, an unfulfilling job, or credit card debt, it’s difficult to create the life you really want.

Sure, one or two tolerations usually aren’t a big deal. Unfortunately, most women have dozens upon dozens—even hundreds.

Think about what happens when your energy is spent managing situations that shouldn’t be there in the first place. Because that’s exactly what happens when you have tolerations in your life.

Tolerations are all the things you’re reluctantly putting up with.

Tolerations keep your attention and efforts focused away from the results you really want to create in your life.

When you eliminate a toleration, you reclaim a little bit (or even a lot!) of your energy.

Do that enough times with enough tolerations and it starts to add up.

In fact, it can be life changing.

Because when you address those pesky tolerations you can channel your reclaimed energy into actually creating the life you really want. For instance:

  • Nipping a dozen clutter-related energy drains in the bud gives you the energy to finally move forward with a career change.
  • Or taking care of several relationship-related tolerations means you now have the energy to tackle your credit card debt.

It’s not magic. It’s really just a simple energy formula.

When you’re already feeling drained by tolerations, you don’t have a lot of extra energy for what’s more important.

Which means when you plug the leak, you’ll have more energy to create the results you want in your life.

When I got rid of my 342 tolerations, I was able to sell my business, change careers, move to another state, deepen my relationships, lose weight, simplify my life, and experience more success than I could have imagined.

All the while feeling energized and really present for my life.

None of that would have been possible if I’d kept leaking my energy all over the place.

What are you reluctantly putting up with that’s draining your energy? If you had more energy, what results would you create in your life?
