Adding Positive Supportive People to Your Life
Adding Positive People
Are you willing to stand up for what you believe in, live in a way that is equal with your beliefs, and put some effort into looking for positive people and work on adding positive supportive people into your life?
I believe what really makes a difference in your life are the people you associate with for friends and social get to gethers.
Describe the impact of your social network using the example of the Koi fish. “The Koi fish grows in proportion to its environment. If you keep it in a pail of water, it grows only 2 inches. But if you let it loose in the wild it can grow up to two feet,” So, are you like the Koi fish that has been kept in a pail?
Is your environment and social network stifling your growth?
If you believe this to be so, “Make a list of the 10 people you spend the most time with and your top 5 goals and top 5 values. Compare the lists. Are the people you spend the most time with congruent with your values and goals? If not, you might be held back by this association.”
I suggest you spend more time with positive people in a positive environment. In the weight loss world, study after study shows when you spend time with others who have the same goals as you, and who are making progress towards these goals, you too will have greater success.
Adding Positive Supportive People
To help you attract the right people and positive support into your social network, may I suggest the following actions to finding good people in your life:
Identify what you value in people.
Identify where this type of person spends time.
Go to the places where this type of person is likely to go.
Whether it is a church, gym, beach, dance lessons, bootcamp fitness class, Chamber of Commerce meeting, local lectures, weekend seminars, weekly group meetings, or a positive Internet forum. For example: Should you want to be a successful entrepreneur, grow with the individuals you meet at an Internet Workshop.
You do not good people by watching TV…but good people are out there. Go forth and find them.
Let this quote give you some inspiration:
“When you take action, particularly bold action, the boundaries of what you believe to be possible (your belief system) expand. Which, in turn, gives you the capacity to consider new ideas, new possibilities, and new concepts that you previously thought to be impossible.” – Robert Ringer
Listen, I’m a lucky lady. Most of the members of my family are very important to me. I spend a great deal of my time with my family. Remember, spending quality time with your family means developing the ability to forgive, often, and putting that into action. We all have short comings as well as great strengths. Most of the people I know other than my family and surround myself with – from my best friends from high school to the most inspirational business experts to amazing entrepreneurs, are people that I’ve met because I’ve lived most of my life with purpose and clarity.
I believe it is import to live and lead by example. Attract the right people into your life, take full responsibility for your social network. You are responsible for your results in all areas of life. When you accept your results without casting blame and you learn from your mistakes so as to not make the same mistakes again, only then will you achieve what you want and have the right people in your life. This is how I believe you will succeed, by implementing these suggestions into your life.
Try modifying your approach you desire to find more good people to share your life. Perhaps you may try donating some of your time with your favorite charity to help people. I have found many good people are attracted to the mission of helping others.
