“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”
Hi lovely motivation seekers, how are you? Hope you had a fabulous week. I especially hope you managed to get some exciting goals underway. Let me know if you want any help with that, or even if you want to discuss any of it. My first session is completely free, to contact me to arrange a time to meet, just click here.
I am continuing with the series of looking at what it takes to be successful in life. Whether it’s in running a business, managing a career, having great relationships or being a fantastic parent to your children – or maybe all of the above….why should we just choose one thing to excel at?
The quote this week says it all….make sure you hang out with good people. People who are positive, uplifting, who think abundantly and who want you to succeed as much as you do, or even more so. These are the people who will make a huge difference in your life.
I remember several years ago, shortly after I started my coaching business, I joined an association – National Speakers. It was the most fulfilling and rewarding group I had ever belonged to. Everyone was willing to share their expertise, it was like they loved to help you grow, they lived lives of abundance. When you are around those sort of people, you can’t help but grow.
Toastmasters is a similar organisation. I have belonged to that for 15 years now, and the people I have met through that have been inspirational. They are mostly all on a mission to be the best they can be. What happens when you are around that, is that this attitude rubs off, you get inspired to be the best too. Even better, because that is important to them, they help others succeed, so it becomes very supportive and encouraging.
What you don’t want to do is be around the nay-sayers, the dream stealers, the ones who tell you you’ll never make it, or your mad to try or maybe they just drag you down by always being negative about everything. Unfortunately, that attitude is catching too. It’s too easy to fall into a pity party together when you’re with those people.
Now, you might be thinking that the only people you know are like that. I know, it can certainly seem that way at times! I think that can just be a reflection of how you feel about yourself. If you start feeling good about yourself and more worthy of good things coming to you, you will attract that to you. As you feel more positive and motivated, you automatically attract more positive and motivated people to you. It becomes a win/win.
So that is my advice to you this week, practise positive thinking and positive talk. Hang out with positive, uplifting people. Notice how they act, what they do, how they manage to be so upbeat – and copy that. It then becomes a habit for you, you become more positive and you will attract better things to you.
Have a brilliant week, have fun hanging around with great people!
