What Are The People Around You Doing For You?


If you want positive change, surround yourself with positive people. 

The people around you affect your personal success. For one thing, you don’t want to be around people who are negative and jealous of everything you do. That type of environment puts hold on your advancement. 

“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.” Oprah Winfrey

How important is your personal success? Are the people around you supporting your vision? If they care about you and your success, they should. Are they encouraging you? If they are not encouraging you, they could be dragging you back. Don’t forget that the people you surround yourself with are going to affect your personal success.

“You cannot change the people around you, but you can change the people that you choose to be around you.”

Therefore, it is imperative that the people you choose to be around are adding value to your life. Moreover, what you have to know is that you cannot force people to do what they don’t want to do. You on the other hand have to know what is important to you. Also, some people will only believe after your success is visible to the eyes, but because you have believed before you see. For that, you want to surround yourself with others who believe into the vision. Are those around you believed with you? It is important!

  1. Absolutely on the mark Richard. I have grown to believe over the years that for many ‘dreams’ are ‘pipedreams’, the stuff of fantasy. They can’t seem to envision themselves realizing lofty dreams and see the dreams of others in a negative light. Attempting to force change upon others only leads to resistance.

    Embracing dreams comes down to believing in possibilities and extending ourselves to self-affirmations that channel our waking energies to our greatest potential. If we have nothing to aspire to what purpose do in life do we have to live out those dreams? It’s not complicated to believe, it just takes an open mind and willingness to sacrifice and pursue those dreams however challenging the journey. Those who find success are willing to take chances, to step away from a comfort zone of settling to achieve what for them goes beyond dreaming.

    As always your words ‘inspire to aspire’!

    • Thanks Don. It was just in my spirit to share for the longest. I had to say it yesterday.

      As you stated, embracing dreams comes down to believing… but sometimes those around us who don’t support the dream can bring doubtful thought to your consciousness.

      Your commit always appreciated!

  2. Very true. Therefore, one must chose their friends wisely.
