Proverbs 13:20 - "Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble." (Holy Bible. New Living Translation)
Today, instead of talking about who YOU hang around with, I thought I'd change things up a bit and focus on THIS question: WHO HANGS AROUND YOU?
And, on top of that, "How do they benefit from doing so?"
The people that hang around you...what do they get out of it? Are they BETTER by doing so? Are they STRONGER emotionally by doing so? Is their attitude better and more positive by hanging around you? What have they learned about how to handle and improve the EMOTIONAL IMPACT of their emotions in their lives by hanging around you?
I'm not saying that you have to be PERFECT...that, my friend, is impossible! I'm not saying that you have to put pressure on yourself to be something that you are not and that you could never be (perfect).
YOU decide - NOW - to "set the pace" with those around you. YOU decide to be the one that "turns the negative into the positive" whenever you can. YOU decide to share your positive attitude and your ability to NOT let "emotions" get the best of you (and to use that as an excuse for your actions) with those around you as a way to build a "better" and "stronger" work place.
Let me throw this out to you...chances are that you are ALREADY doing these things.
That's right. If this is not an "act" or if this is a part of who you REALLY are then, guess what? You are already having that kind of positive impact on those around you.
And, if not, stop being shy about it and let "it" (positive power) come out!
Do so and watch what happens.
Remember, this is how we "change our world"...one person at a time.
And, friend, YOUR TIME IS NOW!
