Surround yourself with positive people.

Please surround yourself with positive people who see greatness.

Dreamers and doers

This is one lesson I have learned this year.  Positive energy is important and situating yourself around people who are doing something will indeed motivate and inspire you to explore things you never thought possible.

Just think about it, if you continue living life every day in a negative situation, you will more than likely develop a negative attitude.  The sky will never be blue enough.  The stars will never shine bright enough for you.  The bad days morph into even worse days.

This is just one reason to fill your life with positive people.  Positive people will be in constant search for the solution and not the problem.  Positive people will always be there to offer you words of encouragement when you can’t find those words for yourself.  Positive people will be there to make you believe that goodness is on the horizon even though that rain cloud is following your around.

Surround yourself with people who dream and want to continue their growth in knowledge and spirit.  We are not meant to be stagnant.  We are meant to continue to learn and grow through our experiences and our relationships.  We don’t just want people in our lives that will be there for encouragement, but we also need people in our lives that challenge us.

I’m almost done with my Gilmore Girls marathon binge and a classic example of this is Rory and Paris’ friendship.  They didn’t always see eye to eye, but they were there for each other when they needed it.  And most importantly, they challenged each other every step of the way.

If you are around people who aren’t motivated to do something, then you will also fall into that trap…and then you’re in a group of people who aren’t accomplishing anything but staying STUCK!

Don’t get stuck.

We are a sum of our experiences, so don’t let anything stand in your way of knowing and growing and showing.

Here are just some helpful things with setting yourself up success:

1. Spend time cultivating your relationships with the right people.  Schedule time with the people you love, admire and respect and take the time to grow those relationships. Those relationships are important for a reason.  Relationships take work and repair.  If these people mean something to you, it won’t seem like work at all.  It’s just part of the process.

2. Negativity needs to be flushed from your life. Disagreements will happen, but those people who are a constant drain on your emotions and time don’t really need to be in your life.

3. Believe in yourself to make the right decisions for the situations in your life.  Yes, we may lean on friends for support but it’s our own spirit that guides us through life.  If you’re confident, those are the type of people you will attract in life.  Confidence will bring confident relationships.
