Growth or Stagnation? What will you choose?

Are you surrounded by people who seem to always have a “word” or “quote” for everything and everyone but their outward life is contrary to there own language? Are you surrounded by people who seem to not want to see you grow?

If there is someone in your life that is always promoting growth and at the same time exhibiting insecurities and creating issues that never existed because people are not conforming to their lower standards then that person needs to use the mirror a bit more and start a fertilizing application.

Growth involves maturity. Maturity in more than just one area of life. Sometimes when you are a person who is clearly going places, and moving forward, there will be Know when to walk awaythose in your circle who will not be able to handle it. You will know because no matter what you do, they will find something negative about it, in it, or around it, but will use quotes or sayings to make it seem like you moving forward is not a good thing.

I had to cut some friendship ties for some of the very reasons. I had a couple of “friends” who I really thought were true until I started talking about bettering myself, and having my own business. They thought of everything that could go wrong with my business instead of being happy for me and supporting me. One of them was always talking about how it’s best to get a job and retire from it, and how I wouldn’t have money like a job would pay and that I wouldn’t be successful for whatever reason. The other “friend” would always say things like “a man who don’t work don’t eat”… just crazy stuff!  What did she think a business was? I quickly stop dealing with the both of them; afterwards I felt much better. I have my own business and it’s doing pretty well.

If you continue to stay in a circle where there is no support, constant bickering, others wanting you to stay on their level, you will find yourself becoming like them.  There is a saying that if you hanging around with 9 broke people you will most likely become number 10.

If you choose to put your self in such a situation and stay there, you will start to feed off of that negative energy, and if you’re not careful you will become like them.

Remember, it’s lonely at the top, but go there any way and the right circle will be there for you.

We live in a computer age. They are pretty much everywhere. We use computers for nearly everything we do. There are also virus applications that when inputted, applied, and executed in the networks, our computers get corrupt and the results are very unfavorable.

Some computers can be fixed and cleaned and restore back to it’s original state after taking it through a process. Other computers don’t make it.

Our lives are much like computers; what you put in it is what you get out of it.

Les brownMost of us desire to succeed and to obtain better things in life whether it is a job, a business, or whatever. But there are those who allow themselves to be filled with “junk”. You might say, “what do you mean by that?” well how many people do you know who are always talking negative, listening to negative people, hanging around negative people, being lazy, not believing in themselves etc.?

I personally know of an individual who “says” he wants a job. But all he does it watch videos, sleep, eat and ask other people for money. Now, they are not watching motivation videos, nor are they doing any kind of personal development but yet they say they want to work. When asked about how they are coming along in their job search, they get mad.

They don’t like how they are living but yet they are not doing anything to change it. If you want to change your life’s output, you’ve got to change your life’s input.

If you want a “job”, then you’ve got to fill out applications, if you want to start a business you’ve got to make the first step.

“If you’re going to be successful, you’ve got to be willing to change your input”

How can you change your input? Well, one way is to listen to personal development cds, mp3s, tapes. Read self improvement books. Doing these will help you develop a new mindset. Find a mentor, someone who is successful already or someone who is headed in that direction.

Set benchmarks for yourself. Take as assessment of your circle of friends. Ask yourself  “Do i have friends that are encouraging?” Do i have friends that are negative? “Do I have friends who are always putting down what I do” ” Do I have friends who always have a negative opinion of everything I try to do?” “Do I have friends who are ambitious?” “Do I have friends who desire to be better?” or “Do I have friends who are just moving with the wind?”
