What do you want people to think about when they hear your name? Do you want to be thought of as a genius, a creative artist, a skilled athlete, or an expert in a certain field?
You can definitely achieve that. Here’s how:
Associate yourself with the person you would like to be connected with.
If you want to be thought of as an energetic person, exude energy in your actions. Let people see for themselves how you are “full of vitality”. Ok, that’s obvious; but people often forget to “act accordingly.”
More importantly, the words you speak will have a big influence in the way people will perceive you.
Talk about wealth all the time and people will associate you with wealth. Talk about goalsetting often and people will perceive you as a goalsetting authority.
So what you need to do is know everything you can about what you want people to associate you with, then talk about it often. Don’t just talk about it, flaunt it! BE IT! Express it through your actions and behavior.
On the other hand, if you often talk about your poor situation or how you hate your life, people will see you as a whiner who puts yourself down. They would avoid you to save themselves from catching your “disease,” unless they feel the same way as you do.
As you know, “Birds of the same feather flock together.” People want to be with people who are similar (in thought or behavior) to themselves.
But that doesn’t mean that if you have been used to be in the company of negative people, you are stuck in the rut forever. You can still change anything.
Remember, you are the master of your destiny and life. You can get whatever you want.
If you want to be successful, be friends with successful people and associate with them often. In time, you will subconsciously attract their aura, their mindset, their personality into your own. Abundance is yours for the taking.
If you’re not comfortable being with them, take it little by little. Some peole would feel awkward or belittled when they’re in the company of “bigger” people. But let me ask you..
“Are you serious in becoming successful?”
If you are, then do it, even if just one step at a time. Don’t let fear stop you from attaining your fullest potentials in life.
Maybe you can ask them if they would like to join you for dinner, or ask them for advice on a certain topic. People who know a certain topic would be very happy to share their knowledge and “show off.” I do mean that in a positive way.
Better yet, apply the Law of Reciprocity. Think of ways in which you can do something nice for them. But don’t expect anything from them; or worse, demand that they return the favor. Just do your thing and let them decide for themselves if they want to return the favor.
What about those negative people you’ve been hanging out with? Well, don’t trash them. That’s going to hurt your relationships.
Just try to avoid them as much as you can and focus on improving your life. Learn to be a human filter by blocking all negative words or thoughts from entering your subconscious. The key word is focus. Focus on the positive, eliminate the negative.
And why not influence negative people to acquire your positive personality? Once you’ve acquired that success mindset, share your knowhow and aura with those who need it. That would be a very noble act indeed.
