Every day is the best day for new beginnings and possibilities. Opportunities to make our lives better, opportunities to start over, to begin reading more often and to change the kind of people we associate with. The latter especially is very important as it contributes towards our self-development. Cliché, but that is a fact.
Whether you are trying to become a doctor, nurse, teacher or entrepreneur the journey to achieving your goals is difficult as it is with any goal.
Hence, the people with whom you surround yourself with will play an important role, contributing positively and adding value to your life.
As human, we are a product of our environment. That can be good or bad. However, we have the power of choice to create the outcome of our lives. Although some of us like to believe we are victims of circumstances. As a consequence, it is essential to be judicious when determining who your friends are.
Here are 5 types of people to positively influence your ambitions.
Those who inspire you. You should always be mindful of the people you surround yourself with. Be around people who inspire you and have the same or similar visions and goals if you want to succeed, because it’s easy to indulge in things that will make you counterproductive. Be around those who motivate you to strive for excellence. While you do so, avoid those who aren’t growing or going anywhere. That is, those that criticize you, discourage you and have a problem for every solution.
Those who are ambitious. People who are unsuccessful with no passion or goals do not generate an atmosphere of optimisms and good relations. In this kind of environment there are feeling of negativity and misunderstanding and lack of support. Find supportive and reliable groups who fits your future and empowers you.
Successful people. You can’t grow with people who don’t want to win. People’s inadequacy and lack of ambitions will influence you to fail or result in average achievement. Slackers and gossipers will drag you to the gutter. Being around successful people will make you want to become successful. Unfortunately, many people do the opposite. You are who you surround yourself with and that is why it is so important for you to align yourself among the people who is relevant to your success.
Those with a positive mindset. Spending time with people who are optimistic is crucial to your accomplishment. Make a decision to raise your standard and surround yourself with positive people who are supportive with a positive mental attitude. People radiate energies and this energy can be passed on to you because of close association.
Authentic people. Those who always criticize you, rude and belittle you stay away from them. These are the people who only see your past and failures. Your values, character and ideals are of importance. This is what makes you. Remember, your authenticity comes from a place of honesty and not pretense. Let your intuition point you toward what is true and choose those authentic people wisely. Those people who will let you know how much they support your goals and praise you when you are doing well.
Decide today whether to remain where you are, in your rut of friends and let go of negative relationships. People who are achievers and are admired will have a positive impact on your life. It’s said that “Proximity is power.” Stay away from those people who are still hoping, still wishing, still waiting and still blaming.
