Toxic work coworkers

 

I’ve spent the past 3 days here in San Diego with a business mentor. We agreed that of the biggest distractions we make when trying to have more success in business is to hang around with the wrong kind of people. Especially in the work space, co-workers can be self-absorbed, catty, have ulterior motives, be manipulative and in general, a big fat distraction to you when on your path to achieving your goals. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Then while on my flight home I’m sitting next to this lovely woman who’s interviewing tomorrow for a job. She shared she’s looking to change her career, mainly because of, “her crappy work environment”. 
I’m like, funny you should say that... I was JUST HAVING that very conversation about the kind of people we sometimes have to deal with at work.

It got me to thinking, in our social world, we can choose our circles, but when the people in your work life are crappy, it takes a bit more strategy to stay focused and on course for your goals.

By not giving your energy to those assholes in your work place and staying focused, you’ll free up some space and energy in your day to for the right people. Even if you are a self employed entrepreneur, you’ll want to select to work only with the people that lift you higher, want you to succeed and that proudly have your back ⭐️⭐️⭐️
