Walk With The Dreamers, The Believers, The Cheerful...

“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it...” ~ Wilferd Peterson

Surround Yourself With Positivity

Watch out for the constant complainers, the negative, the pessimistic, the depressed, the anxious, & bad tempered. These people who are constantly complaining about problems or putting a negative spin to any situation will actually wear you down with their negativity. NegWaativity not only affects a single person, but everyone that surrounds them. Be careful not to absorb their negative energy and take on some of their negativity. Make sure you set an example for these types of people by sending them positive messages instead of getting sucked into their depressed moods.

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

The people who surround you are a reflection of you and reflect on you. The people that you associate with, the way in which they live, their attitudes, and their style of living have an extreme influence on your attitude and actions. So it is important to not only surround yourself with positive people and people that you aspire to be like. This will help your mood and actions to be more positive and elevate your abilities to a new higher level that you may have not thought was possible. (It helps having positive people around you to help you believe in yourself.)

"Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don't hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people." ~ Zig Ziglar

But if you surround yourself with people who are negative, that do not support you and do not value themselves, these people will only hold you back. Be on the watch, because you may not be consciously aware of it, these people will result in a big impact on your mood and actions. How do you really want to be living your life?; in a positive, optimistic, and inspiring, positive influential way to others? or in a negative, depressed, pessimistic, bringing others down way?

"A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier." ~ Author Unknown

Let's all be more positive, more open-minded, less quick to action, more time to think. A steady mind and a full heart. Influence others in the most positive way you can. Use Compliments instead of complaints! Life will bring you challenges and obstacles, & things don't always go your way, but remember it's not the end of the world. Always be looking for the positive side of things, trust me it's there waiting to be discovered. Bring it out, not only in yourself but others around you. It will elevate yourself to new heights and help lift the others around you at the same time.

"The measure of mental health is the disposition to find good everywhere." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Positive things happen to positive people." ~ Sarah Beeny
