Stay Inspired With Great People

I was at an event recently which got me thinking. It was a very timely reminder of the inspiration you can get from mixing with positive people.

Mix with upbeat positive peopleIf you are in business on your own, even if you have staff, it can be a very lonely place. And when you don’t always see other people regularly it can mean getting despondent sometimes. One of the best ways to keep yourself positive is to mix with positive people, and also to spend less time with those people who always get you down. You know the ones – the people who tell you things will never work, the ones who always feel sorry for themselves, never have a good word to say.

As we move into this year, find ways to gently ease out the negative people, and actively seek out the positive people.

Remember you can network on the internet as well as in person, as I’m sure you do. There are some great discussion groups around who are hugely supportive of each other. Seek out the ones that resonate for you.

And keep some time for live events, for networking or learning, nothing beats real life connection!

    If you’ve just heard yourself say two or three negative things then stop a moment and try, (no matter how hard it is), to say one positive thing about the person or situation. There is nearly always a positive side somewhere.

    The truth is, you get to decide your own feelings. I know it doesn’t always feel like you have a choice, but you do. Sure, you can always follow the crowd, but how would that serve you? Wouldn’t you be better served by making the choice to be positive, optimistic and resourceful instead?

  3. Negativity is like a boomerang: It always comes back to you. Likewise, the more you project a positive attitude, the more positivity will come your way. You don’t have to pretend to be someone else. Just recognize the powerful force that is your attitude, and use it to your advantage.
