People have a huge impact on our lives we interact with people on a daily basis. Whether we’re around our family, friends, co-workers or just people we see at the grocery store. People have an impact on our lives combined with the images we see in the media. Who we spend our time with and what messages we allow to enter our minds is vital to taping into our predestined success.
Everyone we spend our time with doesn’t have our best interest at heart. Some people can be very judgmental or give off negative energy. Which can cause us to develop negative thoughts that can turn into limiting beliefs that derail us from our goals. A wise woman once told me “You should think about the people you’re spending time with the same way you think about what you eat and how you’re exercising.”
Benefits of Surrounding Yourself with Positive People
A positive person is not always someone who does, agrees or even thinks the same way you do. Positivity is something most of us can determine by the energy a person displays. Many times, we confuse the difference between someone who agrees with everything we say or do and someone who can be a positive influence. Just because someone disagrees doesn’t mean that they don’t add value to our lives. For example, me and one of my good friends have totally different opinions on just about everything, but we’re still striving for the same goal which is greatness in whatever we do. The key is to surround ourselves with people who are striving and working towards an end goal. Some of the smartest, talented and innovative people I know we have literally nothing in common other than the goal of being successful. However, I have learned so much from just aligning myself around them and soaking up all the information they have.
Surrounding ourselves with great and positive people is one of the first steps in determining our future. If you ask anyone who’ve ever made any major changes in their lives many of them would say “Once I started to surround myself with positivity and let, go of negativity my whole life changed”. Letting go of negative people is easier said than done, many times we don’t realize how these relationships can affect us.
Ultimately who we’re destined to become has a lot to do with who we continually associate with. If you ever wondered what your life might look like in 5 years. All you have to do is look at your friends and people you associate with. If your friends are going places, have a spirit of excellence, kind, generous, courteous, then those qualities are going to rub off on you. I encourage everyone reading this to write down the qualities of the people you spend the most time with. Would you call them positive people? Happy? Now think of how they interact and affect you do they make you feel like you have what it takes to reach your goals? Comment below & if you liked this post please share, like and re-post!
