Jim Rohn said it best:
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”
You need positive people in your life. People that believe anything is possible. People that support your dreams. People that are developed enough to not be afraid of your success, that help you think farther and help you stretch your own boundaries.
How do you find positive people? Be that person to others and they will find you.
Accept people as they are and be careful not to judge or criticize people that may show some negativity or not be as supportive as you would like. You attract positivity by exuding it, not by forcing it upon others. Remember, you choose with whom you spend your time. Just because you would like to spend time with one person or another, and you would like him/her to be supportive doesn’t mean it will ever happen. Not everyone has to have the same hopes, plans, and dreams as you do, and that’s ok.
When you start paying attention to the “positivity level” of others, positive people will stand out. Take an inventory of the people in your life right now – who falls into the positive, optimistic, can-do-anything personality category? What’s even better is a do-er rather than a dreamer…Most people will be hard-pressed to think of anyone…
As you exude and attract positive people, you can’t help but be changed. Others supporting you, showing you that something you thought was impossible is possible through their own actions… others supporting you when you attempt what some would claim is impossible, unrealistic, or unlikely… You need that when you’re facing those challenges. The accumulation of subtle shifts of mindset on a daily basis is critical to your success.
So as you finish up this week, and the rest of this year, look for positivity.. use the holidays to make new connections, and develop new personal relationships.
– Want positive, be positive.
