Paving the Way to Success with PositivityBy: Kimberly Capella Life gets in the way of our plans, there is no doubt about it. As much as we schedule and map out our lives, we are never completely in control. We miss the bus, catch a cold, and spill our coffee. But even though we can't change the things outside of our control, we do have the ability to change our mindset. We can choose to perceive life in a positive or negative light, and also how we want to share the influence with others. This mindset impacts our decision making, and ultimately what we put back into the world. Ultimately, you are whom you surround yourself with. These influences can build you up or tear you down, so it’s best to build friendships that support your path to success.
Qualities of positive influencers in your life:
- They inspire you to expand your goals and build a vision for a better future. They show you that you can in fact do what you once thought could not be done. Therefore, if living a healthy life is your ultimate goal, surround yourself with people who understand and can relate to your journey!
- They challenge you to achieve your goals. They push you slightly past your comfort zone so that you can grow from the experience. Positive influencers want to see you succeed; they catalyze your success.
- They encourage you through positive affirmations. The support you receive builds you up and rids you of self doubt. These "personal cheerleaders" will help bolster self-confidence and remind you that you are capable of everything you’ve set out to achieve.
- They free you of negativity. It is amazing how much positive energy you have when you remove the negativity! With all of the new positivity and enthusiasm, you’ll be an unstoppable force of nature.
