Surround Yourself With Positive People... They Will Build You Up

Oct 23rd 2010 at 7:10 AM

Surround Yourself With Positive People

If you want to grow personally and professionally, you will need to surround yourself with positive people. Positive people will keep you motivated when you are feeling down and give you that extra push and support when you need it. Positive people help your self confidence because they tend to see the potential in you (even when you might not see it in yourself). Positive people have a mental attitude that admits into their minds thoughts, words and images that attract and draw to them growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. Positive people anticipate happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action.

You also need positive people who will be candid with you about what you are doing and provide you with constructive criticism that will help you keep going forward. When you are around people who are positive, enthusiastic and supportive you will feel encouraged and inspired. You will pick up their attitude; you will feel as if you have added strength to vigorously pursue your own goals. If you had a choice, wouldn't you rather surround yourself with such mentally and psychologically nourishing people? Well, in fact, you do have a choice. It's up to you to determine who you spend your time with. To begin with, develop friendships and associations with people who are positive and supportive. In addition, seek out people who are action-oriented and service-oriented. As you spend more and more time in the company of people who have these traits, you, too, will develop the same successful characteristics and put them to use in your life. Consider who you have been spending your time with. Examine your friendships and relationships at work and during your leisure hours. Those who occupy your time have a significant impact on your most priceless possession: YOUR MIND!

Negative people or those who are not well meaning, on the other hand, will hinder your self confidence because they tend to reinforce your self doubt and negative beliefs about yourself. These people will drag you down to their level. They hammer away at you with all of the things you can't do and all of the things that are impossible. They barrage you with gloomy statements about the problems in their lives, the lousy economy, the problems soon to be in your life, and the terrible prospects for the future - they might even throw in a few words about their aches and pains, recent illnesses, blah... blah... blah... After listening to such toxic people, you will find yourself feeling listless, depressed and drained. These people are "energy vampires," they suck all the positive energy out of you. These "vampires" have the capacity to wear you down and kill your dreams. Negative people are really draining. Try to stay away from them as much as possible.

Bottome Line: Never underestimate the power of both negative and positive people. Negative people will bring you down whereas positive people will build you up. As Mark Twain once said "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that. The really great make you feel that you too can become great."

Brilliant piece of Artie. I have been a motivational speaker before. I have always advised my listeners that they should drop friends who do not add value to their lives. I am happy to share the same sentiment with your Article. I am now an author of some books and a blog www.alwayssweating.com

Good article you wrote. While reading this I thought about what my mentor told me. He said "Small Minded People Talk ABOUT People while Brilliant People Talk ABOUT Thoughts and Ideas." He said this also, "Every time You let people Rent space in your head for any reason You are Giving them Your Power..." So when you get around negative people, you should avoid and get away from them as quickly as possible. That way you will always have positive energy and thoughts in your mind and that will allow you to stay focused on what it is you want, so that you can accomplish your goals.
