It’s hard to resist infectious excitement. When I find myself around someone who’s fired up, talking fast, spouting ideas one after the other, and grinning from ear to ear, I tend to leave that meeting with some of those same positive energies coursing around my body and mind.
It’s even harder to resist anger, bitterness, and resentment. I’m not going to question your intelligence by providing an example. You know exactly what I mean.
We pick up the habits, beliefs and attitudes of the people we hang around. Spend time with dissatisfied, resentful, mad-at-the-world people who are constantly whining about not ever being able to catch a break, and you know what kind of energy you’ll carry home.
Take a hard look at your top five. Who in that group sends you their positive energies? Who gives you a dose of poison?
You may have a decision to make.
