What Happens When You Surround Yourself With Positive People
If you’ve ever watched The Biggest Loser you will notice that there is one thing that allows everyone to lose so much weight and you can do the same: just surround yourself with positive people. But here’s the deal, it doesn’t just apply to weight loss. It applies to every single aspect of your life whether you want to grow spiritually, make more money, or simply just have less chaos in your life you need to be surrounded the people that are going to allow that happen.
Before you fully understand what happens when you surround yourself with positive people, you need know HOW to do just that. Before anything else what you want to do is identify your top 5 relationships. These are people you either hang out with regularly, do business with, or are involved in whatever aspect of your life that you want to improve. Once you identify these individuals the following steps will help you know how to proceed from here.
3 Ways To Surround Yourself With Positive People
There’s an old saying that goes, “you’re income will the average of the 5 people you hang out with.” Whether or not you’re looking for some positive people in your life, this saying rings true for every part of your life, not just income. Although I’ve found in my entrepreneurial endeavors that the people that make the most money (99% of the time) are those that already have positive people around them.
- Of the people you listed about, are they the top 5 that you want to surround yourself with? Or are there others you would rather have be that positive influence you desire. Chances are these individuals aren’t helping you right now, otherwise you wouldn’t be looking for a way to surround yourself with positive people. So you need to first drop those friends that aren’t where you want to be. That’s not to say you’re never going to talk to them again. But what you will do is simply hang out with them and talk to them less.
- In exchange for the people you’re not spending time with, you now need to add those that you want to associate with – the people that will encourage your and be a positive influence on your life. If you personally don’t know any of these people begin by reading books by that type of person. A few authors I would recommend include John Maxwell, Noah St. John, Brendan Burchard, Tim Keller, & Mark Batterson.
- Start connecting with real people that are at the level you desire to be. A good place to meet these people online would be Facebook as this a way to begin interacting with those who have the results you want. You can also go to meetup groups in your local area since the people that attend these events are all like-minded.
This is what happens when you surround yourself with positive people.
When you begin to surround yourself with positive people you will slowly notice over time a change in your thinking & behavior. With an open mind, things in your life will happen that you didn’t think possible previously. Whatever it is that you set your mind, you can achieve should that be your focus. I will warn you; however, that the people you’re now spending less time with will say things and might do things that will cause you to come back down to their level. You must ignore all that chatter and focus on what it is that you desire to become.
