There are many many things in our everyday life that can have an effect on our attitude. In a single day you may go through many changes to your attitude depending on whats happening, what’s not happening, who you are working with, what you are seeing and more than anything WHAT YOU ARE HEARING.
What you hear has huge implications and influence to who you are as a person, your self image, your image of others, the things you think about and the ideas that move your life forward.
Nothing has a greater influence on your life more than the people that surrounded you.
What you hear most often is what you come to believe, what you come to repeat and what controls how you look at yourself and how or what you see in your future. In short, what you hear most often is a direct reflection of what your attitude in life will be like.
The question is: Who are you listening to most often and what are they saying? If you are wanting to advance in life, achieve something that seems impossible or attain a goal that seem out of your reach, simply hearing or reading something motivating and positive once in a while is not enough to alter your personal outlook, especially if the people you are around the most and communicate with the most have a negative attitude in life.
Have you ever met or known a person that is the proverbial ” complainer”? You know, that person that has an opinion about everything, nothing is the way he or she thinks it should be and they always know better. Ever notice that when your involved in a conversation with this person you tend to join in and offer your own complaints and opinions to the “negative” conversation? We all do it and have done it. It is totally natural because it gives you a sense of empowerment and authority to speak your mind. Every conversation you listen to and every word you speak enters your mind through your ears and influences your thoughts for the rest of the day. Ever had an argument in the morning and were still rehashing it in your mind that night before bed? How many times a week or a day do you have negative conversations or hear negative words? Saddest thing is that negative words do not even have to be spoken to you directly for them to have a negative effect on your attitude.
Now, have you ever had a conversation with someone who only spoke in a positive way about everything? While listening to them or speaking with them your mind just moved to a motivated place where you started thinking about ideas or changes you could make that would increase your life. Its exciting to our thinking and attitude to imaging something better. Can you remember ever feeling this way? Neither success nor happiness ever comes from a negative thought or attitude.
Your attitude about your own future, positive or negative, is a direct reflection of the people you communicate with most often.
Seek out positive conversations, listen to them, and be a part of them as often as possible. It’s not enough to remain silent in the midst of negativity, you must remove yourself from the ability to hear it.
And as a last thought I would like to leave you with this: If you want to become a successful person then spend your time communicating with and surrounded by positive people. They will fill your ears with positive thoughts, words and attitude. If your attitude can be so dramatically effected by the negative or positive words of others, imagine the power behind you own words.
