Relationships:

This past week I watched Piers Morgan interview the iconic pioneer actress, comedienne, singer, dancer and writer, Carol Burnett (http://piersmorgan.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/21/carol-burnett-on-show-business-start-id-never-seen-that-many-zeros-in-my-life/).    In responding to Piers’ question about managing the relationships in her life, she replied that she figured out along the way, the need to cut some people out of her life because “There are people that suck the oxygen out of you.”   She then stated, ” ‘No’, really is a full sentence.”

To reach our ultimate life vision, we need to continually ask our selves, “Who am I giving my time, energy and resources to?”, and “Is the relationship healthy, fulfilling, rewarding and growing?”  If your answer is not ‘yes’ to the second question, it is time to do some surgery of your own on that relationship.
