Surround Yourself With Greatness

Greetings Happy People,

For the next message, I want you to look at the people you surround yourself with. Go ahead, look at your left. Now look at your right. When it comes to these people, ask yourself the following questions.

“Do they make you feel good?”

“Do they want you to better yourself?”

“Do they appreciate you?”

“Do they want you to succeed?”

Or do they want the complete opposite??

If the people surrounding you do not want you to succeed, you really should not hang around with them. The more you do, the deeper they will drag you down. Why they want to do this? I have no idea!!

Instead ally yourself with more positive people. Hang around with people that want you to succeed. Hang around with people that want YOU to better yourself!! Hang around with people that want you to do well. They are the ones that will take you farther than you can imagine.

That is one of many reasons why I like Toastmasters so much. You have lots of positive people in the organization that are there to help you become a better speaker, better leader, and better person!! You can also meet some cool people in the same process. If I did not like it, I would not have been there.

Being around good people is amazing. I believe that the success of one person is based on the company he or she keeps. It has been proven many times, with many people, in many different scenarios!!

What if you find yourself surrounded by people that don’t want you to succeed? First, ask yourself is why you are there in the first place? Whether you are able to answer that question or not, the following choice is up to you!! You can either stay where you are and drown yourself with more of the same OR get out of the rut and be in a better environment. The choice is up to you!!

You have the right to feel good. You have the right to succeed. You have the right to surround yourself with greatness!! It is possible and it will happen, once you decide to make that change for yourself.

That is all I have for now. Take care and thank you for your time and attention.
