Surround Yourself with Positive People

Surround yourself with positive, like-minded people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends that you are proud to know. People you admire, who love you and see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself. Focus your attention on the eternal optimists that always see the glass as half-full, the people who make your day a little brighter simply be being in it.

Take the time to explore the relationships in your life - and the impact they are having on your personal happiness.

Identify any 'Negative Nellies or Neds' that drain you of energy every time you see them.  Can you let any of these relationships go? Or maybe you can think of different strategies that you can implement to take charge of how these relationships make you feel.

Now think about the people in your life that lift you higher. The ones that give you energy, the ones that make you feel happy and appreciated. Who are they? Plan to spend more time with these people because there is truth in the old saying, 'show me your friends and I'll tell you who you are.'
