Birds like a feather flock together. If you hang out with a loser you will be a loser. If you hang out with cynical lazy negative people then that’s who you will become. Negative people are like ripe apples. You have to watch yourself.
I used to not believe this to be true. I felt that hanging out with these types of people and showed a positive attitude and that it is possible to change they would want it for themselves. Sadly it was just the opposite. People grew jealous and actually started to hate me. No matter what I did and showed them the more I pushed them away when I thought I was making a difference in their life. It was like I was speaking a different language. In which to them I was. I just did not realize how damaging to me it could be.
Honestly it breaks my heart that I did not make any difference in their life. I don’t understand why or how people can look at such a positive thing to be so negative.
Now I understand the importance of hanging out with like minded people. I mean even when they would get on my nerves I never turned them down and was always there. I just don’t get how people can be so cruel.
With this being said I highly encourage you to surround yourself with like minded people so you may grow to be the person you want to become. If you want to be successful you must hang out with successful people. If you want to be an millionaire you have to be an millionaire at heart. If your hanging around negative people they will stunt your growth.
If your 5 steps forward they will bring you 25 steps backwards. Now I know your thinking well my mom dad, brothers sisters immediate family don’t agree with my change.
Obviously you can’t change your family. Love them just like your learning to live yourself, going through self discovery. Minimize your talking about what it is your learning and implementing in your life. There is a difference between influencing and encouraging people to change. Remember you can’t change anyone however you can be an encourage people.
Remember when people start seeing a change in you, unfortunately as lame as it is sounds they don’t understand. It doesn’t make them wrong or indifferent they either see the change and don’t like it because it’s not them doing it, or they just don’t understand.
When you are changing it’s important that you continue the positive thinking at all times because you are sending that energy out to the universe. Which the universe is God and can heal all things including the way your immediate family sees you during the change.
During the really trying times say to yourself God father forgive them for they not know what they do. There is peace and power in the words that are spoken. Listen to calming music, meditate, join groups and other positive things like yoga. Listen to some motivational speakers. Tony Robbins, Les Brown, Brian Fanale, Robert Schuller, Zig Zigler to mention a few.
Speak the Serenity Prayer over and over again. God starts showing up. He helps those whom helps themselves. It’s not easy to change your way of thinking to be positive. It’s not easy to change your inner being. However it is easy to make that decision and the decision is now.
Love you guys,
