Surround Yourself With Positive People
How Positive People Can Influence Your Life
"Associate only with positive, focused people who you can learn from and who will not drain your valuable energy with uninspiring attitudes. By developing relationships with those committed to constant improvement and the pursuit of the best that life has to offer, you will have plenty of company on your path to the top of whatever mountain you seek to climb.” – Robin Sharma
The people you choose to be in your life have an enormous influence on what decisions you may make or what path you may choose. Since I was a little girl, I have been blessed to have very loyal and loving people in my life. As I got older, I made a decision to continue what I was so graciously given as a child, into my adult life. A lot of times it wasn’t easy because I had to make decisions about whom I would allow myself to be around. I knew if I valued myself I would be the best person I knew how to be, so in turn I would have people see that and want to be an influential part of my life. Knowing that you deserve to have good people in your life will open the doors to more things than you can imagine. There is nothing more gratifying than knowing you can have loving people in your corner. The type of people who will be your cheerleader in times of good or bad.
Surrounding yourself with positive people is also such an important aspect of living a happy and peaceful life. If there are people in your life who are unhealthy to be around then it is time to look for a new group of people because life is too short to waste. Positive people will inspire you to reach greater heights, will be there for you when you need them most, will encourage your strengths, love you for your weaknesses and make you laugh until your belly hurts. “One of the most important ways you can get (and keep) positive energy in your life is with the company you keep.” The way you look at your own life will determine what type of people you are attracted to, so believing in yourself and having the right group of people by your side will only help further a happy and prosperous future.
To find out if you surround yourself with positive people, ask yourself the following questions:
1. Do you ever think about what type of people you surround yourself with? 2. How do they speak to you? 3. Are they reliable? 4. Do they encourage you? 5. Are they forgiving? 6. Are they loyal? 7. Do they respect themselves as well as you? 8. Are they happy? 9. Do they make you laugh until you can’t stop laughing? 10. What type of conversations do you have with them? Are you learning from them or are you able to teach them? Are they willing to learn?
Remember… “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people”. -Eleanor Roosevelt
All of the questions are very important in how you could feel about yourself. You deserve to have anything you want and by surrounding yourself with people who make a positive difference in your life, is invaluable. Make a decision right now to value yourself and the people you have in your life. It will be one of the most positive things you can do for yourself.
