No matter how independent we want to be, our very nature insists that we are susceptible to the vibrations of those around us. Unless you live in absolute isolation 100% of the time your individual broadcast is being influenced at some level by the input of other human beings.
It’s no coincidence that wealthy people have rich friends. Nor is it a fluke that drug addicts hang out with other users.
We migrate into groups and communities that reflect our inner natures. And when you begin to the transformation process to become your ideal self you may find it’s necessary to change who you spend your time with.
Just as an alcoholic must stop hanging out with drinking buddies in order to become and stay sober, so an individual on a positive thinking path must eliminate from his or her life those people who dwell on the negative. In fact you’ll find that, once people understand your desire to shift into a positive mode, they may even try to thwart you by laying negativity at your feet whenever possible.
People who choose to remain in a negative thinking state don’t like the idea of anyone escaping the bubble of misery. So they will attempt to sabotage you, whether consciously or unconsciously.
It’s critical to the success of your positive shift that you find positive, supportive people to spend time with. The good vibrations created when a group of people focus on the uplifting possibilities will amaze you.
You can leave a mastermind group or just a positive discussion feeling empowered and unstoppable. And you can develop the skills needed to carry this inspiration with you for long afterwards.
Your first step will be to eliminate negative thinkers from your life. If you can’t completely remove them, you can at least decrease your exposure.
Then immediately look for positive peer pressure wherever possible. Identify the people at your office who are more upbeat and happy, join a social group that vibrates good energy, or find an online forum devoted to supporting positive attitude.
Invest in uplifting books and audio courses that promote positive thinking and energy, and practice daily positive affirmations to train your mind to think in a positive range. But above all find some positive thinking people to talk with, hang out with, bounce ideas off, and generally share the same drinking water with.
Few things will have the kind of powerful, subconscious impact on your life as peer pressure. And I’m not talking about over-the-top pressure that involves what people say to you, I’m talking about the far more effective assertions of people’s thought vibrations.
Studies have shown that if you place several synchronized pendulum clocks in a room, and then add a final clock whose swing is out of time with the rest, within 24 to 36 hours the offbeat clock will be swinging it’s pendulum in the exact same rhythm as the original group. Energy has a way of imposing itself and working toward a common vibration.
So your goal should be to surround yourself with people and groups of people whose thinking and attitude supports the overall mindset you prefer to embody.Mail this post
