145. Energy Vampire | MSLJ Episode

In our latest episode, Mackey talks about the idea of energy vampires.

There are so many people in our life who we’re surrounded with who focus on what is wrong. These people literally suck the energy out of the team because of their negativity and doubt.

Mackey answers a question a coach recently asked him. She asked, “What do you do when you’re best player is an energy vampire? When the player is awesome, they are unbelievably awesome, but when they’re playing bad, they’re an absolute energy vampire.”

Mackey approaches this question from two different angles. He approaches it from a one on one standpoint. He gives us active ways in which we can individually, one on one, help solve this problem. He also gives us advice on how to deal with it from the team level.

Key takeaways from this podcast:

  • Instead of coming down on those athletes that are energy vampires, ask them what they see, what’s going on through their eyes
  • Call out the energy vampire lovingly in front of their teammates
  • If you think about something three times, on the third time, tell them about it.
