One of the important things that we can control in our lives are the people that we choose to let into it.
The people who you have around you, be it, friends, the people you work with, or your family can strongly affect us. In fact, there is little chance that the people around you will have no effect on you. The people in our lives either make things easier for us, or they can compromise and weaken us in our approach to reaching our goals. People can affect our productivity. We all know that certain someone who we have worked with who likes to chat or gossip maybe a little too much. So it is important that we surround ourselves with positive people with the same goals and ambitions as we have.
Getting toxic people out of your life in important. I’m not saying that it is easy, in fact it is quite hard to face the hard facts sometimes and do some cleaning, especially when it’s a family member or someone who you used to be close to. But the more time you spend with people who speak and act unkind, disrespectful, resentful and bitter the better chance you will start feeling the same way. The more time you give to these people the less you respect yourself. Even a few minutes is enough to get you down and disrupt your positivity and determination and this will affect your thinking, creativity and productivity.
Now I am not saying that these people are bad – I am just saying that they are bad for you and for your reaching your goals and ambitions.
Think of it as giving candy to a diabetic. It is not good for them and in reality it is poison in their bodies. And for a diabetic to decide to be around someone who is always insisting that they have “just one piece of candy” is, in my opinion, a form of suicide. The same goes for being with people pushing their toxic vibes are you – this is suicide (or homicide) for your dreams and goals.
Seek out people who build you up and encourage you to b the best that you can possibly be. Each minute is made either more or less valuable by whom or what is shaping your mind at the time, and who you association with is a big key to your success.
Live your dreams. It is possible.
