Who are you hanging around?
Jim Rohn said that “we become the combined average of the five people we hang around the most”.
So how do you delete the toxic people from your life and surround yourself with positive people? I have no magic answers, but in my case, I had to sever communication. Written and verbal – all communication. First though, I had to let go of any notion that I could help them change. Most frustrating is when they keep asking for advice but ignoring everything you offer.
It can be particularly difficult if they are related to you, and it may be impossible to complete remove them from your life, so mitigate their negativity with other positive people. Make it a 4 positive to 1 negative ratio at least.
If we become a combined average, be sure you surround yourself with as many positive, uplifting and growing people that you can find. That includes the ‘people’ that you allow into your mind – all input counts.
Will you share the ways you increase positivity in your life?
