A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.
– THE LIVING BIBLE, PROVERBS 27
Have you ever heard the sentence “Tell me who you hang out with, and I’ll tell you who you are“?
There is a lot of things behind this single sentence, which has been summed up as a single sentence.
You should dig deeper into that, to understand more about life rules to play comfortably with your life game.
We have an influence of other which are around us over our lives. We used to get into the habit of certain peoples which we associated with, without thinking about the consequences of that.
Think back when we were growing up. Our parents were too curious about who our friends are and wanted to meet them always in personal. They were concerned for good reasons. They wanted you to be in good influence and with good people.
TOXIC PEOPLE AND NOURISHING PEOPLE
There are almost two kinds of people everywhere:
Toxic ones who by definition tend to be the poisonous one and Nourishing ones who by definition tends to be the one who promotes the growth of anyone.
In simple words, Toxic people are those who always dwell on negative, While Nourishing people are all the time positive and supportive.
Toxic people will drag you down to their level. They will tell you all the reasons that are stopping you from going ahead, instead of focusing on opportunities.
Les Brown call this kind of people as “Dream Killers.” Yeah, they are if you are happy to kill your dreams you can enjoy the life journey with them partying and spreading negativity everywhere.
Psychologist Jack Canfield describes them as the “energy vampires” because they suck all the positive energy out of you.
How do you feel when you are with negative people?
How do you feel when you are around with people who are positive, enthusiastic and supportive?
You will be inspired and energized. You will gain more energy and more enthusiasm to work. Something is impressive about these positive people, you will start picking up their attitude, and you will feel as if you added strength to pursue your goals. They will light up your moment and help you climb the path of success.
HOW INFLUENCE AFFECTS?
I’m sure is has happened with everyone many times. You have heard a song, and you say to yourself, “What a ridiculous song it is.” Later after some time, you hear the same song again. Following days, you heard that songs a few more times. You have heard for many times.
Now something incredible happens. You’re relaxing somewhere and all of a sudden, you start to hum or sing that silly song! At that very moment, if I asked you what you think of that song, you’d tell me, “It’s horrible.” Then why are you singing it?
The reality is, whatever you hear over and over will be at the front of your consciousness.
As you also know that, once that song will become less popular…you will tend to sing it to yourself rarely.
There is one message within the above example. Your mind doesn’t distinguish between words that are good for us or bad for us. Your mind will pass whatever you are providing to it from time to time, and it will act accordingly. Just wholly based on what you are offering.
Why Do People Think Negative Instead Of Positive?
The answer to this is just straightforward: It is easier.
Everyone in nature follows the path which has least resistance. People want fewer obstacles and challenges. It takes strength to find a way to change course, to follow a path that is harder.
Negativity is far easier than positivity that’s why people think Negative instead of Positive.
You may agree or not!
“Man thinks same for others as he is.”
In simple, the negative person will think the Negative and positive person will think Positive.
How To Save Ourself From Negative People?
Saving yourself from negative is all it comes down under your willpower.
If you believe in accepting what is right and rejecting what is wrong, no matter how much you interact with toxic people, then you would only follow your goals, without letting anyone stop you.
All it needs is willpower. Build it. Decide what is right and what is wrong and stick with the right ones.
Even the proton in an atom is positive even all the negative electrons surround it.
Positive People At Your Work!
Just like every organization, you will see many positive as well as negative people around. Sometimes you have to interact and work with some negative ones. But don’t go out of your way to spend time with that kind of people.
For instance, if you frequently have lunch with negative people at work, stop having lunch with them. All they will do is, fill your positive mind with negativity. And there are high chances of being influenced by them at all.
You should find a way of distancing yourself from this “poisonous” group. Take charge. Be Proactive. Do whatever you should to make you lunch a positive experience.
Choose Your Friends Wisely
As I said at the beginning of this blog post, “Tell me who you hang out with, and I will tell you who you are.”
If you are very serious about getting raise or a promotion, succeeding in your own business, or improving yourself, then you have to start surrounding yourself with people who can take you to the next level and not drag you down.
Good Friends are good for your health.
-Dr. Irwin Sarason
As you will increase your surrounding with positive people you will notice, you will start feeling some great kind of positive energy. You will feel a pleasant and upbeat person.
You will start aiming at your dreams, and you will begin to achieve them.
B+ Blood Group does not make anyone Positive Person; the Same way it’s all about your choice to be Positive Or Negative.

So, surround yourself with positive, nourishing people – they will lift you the ladder of success.
