“Avoid people who disparage your goals; people who are truly successful themselves will be supportive and want you to succeed.” Melchor Lim
Have you ever seriously think about people who surround you? Do you feel that they drag you down or mostly lift you up?
You are going to meet with many people in your life. Some will fit you, others not. That is fine. Most important thing in your life is what individuals are the closest one. A big part of your life is going to be influenced by the environment you are at. I, personally, believe that as long as people support you and respect you, you have nothing to worry about. I am confident that if more of us have better understanding between each other, we would be able to create better quality relationships.
From my experience, if you feel like people criticize you and drag you down, you should cut off the contact with them or at least minimalize it. There is no point of being surrounded by people who don’t understand your goals, or worst, don’t want to know. If you are serious about your future and dreams, hang out with those who inspire you and want to see you succeed.
Let’s take a look at six signs which tell you that you have the right people around.
1. They honestly listen
People who care about you and want to feel proud of you will listen, and you know it. If someone is genuinely interested in what you have to say, you feel it. You know you can tell them every your dream, and they will listen and look as excited as you. You’ll feel like you can tell them anything and they are always curious and want to know more. There is nothing more valuable than honest conversation
2. They encourage you
Anytime you come up with something new you want to do or try; they encourage you. Genuine people understand your desires and respect you as an individual. Even if they don’t completely see your perspective on a certain opportunity, they feel your excitement and know how to excite you even more. Supportive people know that their action has an impact on a way how you feel, and it is important to them.
3. They are there to help
If they see you are in trouble, or you are dealing with difficulties, they are ready to support you by offering their help or anything else. They let you know that in case you need anything, you can count on them 100%. They don’t criticize you for what you have done and telling you that you should’ve done it differently. They understand that failing is part of the process, and they stand by your side.
4. They advise you with respect
People who care about you will listen to you but also give you advice. You are important to them, so they want to make sure you consider every option. But, there is one difference between those who care and those who just want to lecture you. People with the best interest give you advise with respect, what means they are careful what approach to use to make their point across. They get it that we all make mistakes, you and them as well.
5. They support you with an action
Have you started a new business? Are you selling some products or maybe offering online services? People who are interested in your success will purchase your products without asking them to do so. They will actively tell everyone around them about your new business and help you create connections. I don’t mean they will break their legs to make your business running; this is without a question your responsibility. But they will always make some effort and take a particular action. And trust me, you will see it and feel it.
6. They are with you whether you fail or succeed
When things are going right, and everyone is happy, you have a lot of friends. But what about your failures and hardships? How many people you have seen standing by you? Trust me if I tell you that whoever was there, is the person you need to keep close to you and not let them go. You can count on them no matter where you are in your life. They will be with you whether you are a homeless or the richest person in the world.
It is crucial that you choose the right people to be around. How people treat you will have an impact on your success. You don’t have to realize it immediately. Your subconscious mind works 24 hours, seven days a week. It records everything that is happening around you and absorb every information. Create your circle and chose who you’ll let in.
