Flake is another word for loser—plain and simple. I have seen it time and time again. Prospective clients arrive late for their appointments without apology by the way. Flaky people are a hindrance both professionally and to the productivity of my firm. These people cause stress, they bring us down—they breed failure, not success. Just as flakiness in the workplace provides a dismal environment, such is the case in our personal lives. Think about it. In recent years, scientific research has suggested that people who have strong friendships and business relationships experience less stress and are even less susceptible to the common cold.
We have all heard how owning a dog or cat can add years to our life, so it makes perfect sense that people with good friends will have an even better outcome.
Your friends should be of impeccable character. They should be honest and reliable; they should treat you with respect and be tolerant of differences; your friends should be able for their choices and do what they say; and most of all they should be kind, compassionate, and forgiving. We should expect the same amount of effort in giving and receiving.
Pals keep promises. But what if these pals start pooping out on plans, what then? How do we identify who is bad for our health and what do we do about it? In a close, enduring friendship—envy, anger, jealousy and the entire gamut of emotions will eventually rear its ugly head.
It is important to figure out whether it is just a phase in the friendship or if it would be better to abandon ship. So what can I look for in my friendships to determine whether they are beneficial or harmful to my health you ask? Let me tell you! The problem is usually one of not accepting responsibility. One of the aspects of being a flake is inconsistency—a mild case for instance, would be the friend who calls you back two or three days after you called. A stronger form would be when they never call you back.
Observe the people around you—which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which are going downhill?
Do you find that the balance of give and take in the relationship is consistently off kilter? Those who get in the way of our personal, emotional and spiritual growth—the severe flakes—are the ones we need to ditch. The most common loser, eh hmm, excuse me—flake—is the promise breaker. These people are without a doubt toxic to your health and the more you hang around them, the more they will hinder your success in life, both personally and professionally. Bad friends will suck you in and consume your goodness and direction—they cause stress.
Stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relaxation between those challenges. Being around people who will help motivate you and give you new ideas will minimize stress and keep you focused. Flaky people will never help you meet your commitments and goals; they will only stop you short of the finish line. We spend far too much time trying to change the things that cannot be changed; trying to control the uncontrollable.
We need to ask ourselves this: what does it really matter to our lives to have flaky friends and what can we realistically do about it? Well, start living, folks. Life is like a roller coaster ride taking us up, down, spinning us around.
It will scare us and thrill us all at the same time. Get on the right track—fire your flaky friends and enjoy the ride.Looking for friendships no flaky people
