The Power of Association

I recently returned from my company’s business convention.   What an amazing experience! I was blown away by the upbeat and encouraging people that I met.  I was so excited to connect with so many people who want to create wealth and make a difference in the world. 
 
The energy was phenomenal!  I was charged.  I knew that nothing could stop me.  I began to set even
bigger goals for myself.  That’s the power of the awesome energy that’s generated by positive people. 
 
That’s when I realized the power of association, that the people I hang out with can motivate me to
reach my goals.  Or if I spend time with negative and critical people, I will focus on the negative and have negative results.
 
So, with whom do you associate?  Ask yourself some tough questions about your friends.   For you are
definitely influenced by the company you keep.  If you want to experience success in your business, then objectively assess the quality of your friends. 
 
Get away to a quiet place. List your 10 closest friends. Are they critical, skeptical people who deliberately
denigrate the wealthy?  Or, do they extol the efforts of the affluent?  Are your friends creative problem solvers? How do they respond to the challenges they experience?
 
What is your friends’ perception of the current economic recession?  Do they complain and worry?  Or,
are they aware that we are on the verge of a massive transfer of wealth and are looking for opportunities to take advantage of it?
 
Most important, how do you feel when you are with them?  Do you feel energized and excited?  Or, do
you feel drained and depressed? 
 
Once you evaluate your friends, you will need to determine how much contact you want to maintain
with them.  Will the relationship enhance your goal of creating a successful business? 
 
With some people you may choose to spend less time. For others, you may decide to end the friendship
as you realize that it’s time to move on.  As you do, you create the space to develop a better relationship.
 
So how do you find like-minded, positive people?   Be positive yourself.  Thank God for the positive
people who are in your life. Nurture them.  Be the person you would like to have as a friend. Check out online forums, such as Meetup. Attend your company’s events.  Ask God to direct positive people in your path.
 
Visualize the successful online business that you are creating.  See yourself as a successful, powerful
online entrepreneur who attracts upbeat, passionate people into your life.  Know you are making a difference in the world!!
