When we resonate at a low level energy, we tend to feel victim to environmental circumstances. Are you ready to learn a philosophy that will elevate you out of this lower level space?

Low level energy is that energy which leaves us feeling sad, depressed, stressed, fatigued, creating a thought process of "why is this happening to me, they did this to me, this always happens to me, there is nothing I can do about this, etc." When we feel this way, we respond from a space of self-pity, isolation with little to no engagement with others; our productivity dissipates, and we become lethargic in our behavior. There is no right or wrong with this low level energy, it is more a matter of how sustainable is it to continue to feel this way, and how it is affecting our overall progress in life. So how do we crawl out of this space?
I would like to introduce, if you are not already familiar, stoic philosophy. The stoics are known for creating a philosophy which leads toward living the good life, and removing ourselves from destructive behavior; this philosophy addresses worry/fear, providing the mental mapping process of realizing what we have control of and what we do not have control of. So the idea is not necessarily get you to agree or disagree with this philosophy, but encourage you to take an objective look into it and perhaps adopt elements that may work for you.
We can think positively all day, read affirmations from our desktops, and still may wonder why we still feel this low level energy. We begin to start seeing movement and results when we actually walk the walk. Embodying the philosophy is what actually allows us to start living it, eliminating worry, fear, and blame.
So, lets transition from victim to freedom, the following are some quotes from some of these amazing Greek philosophers:
These were just a few words of two stoic philosophers, in conclusion it is a matter of embodying the philosophy and living it. It can be extremely difficult to pull ourselves out of that victim mindset; however, the more we build this framework of highly effective thinking, the easier it will be to pull ourselves out of that low level energy.
Super Awesome Stuff!
