Time to get some new friends?

Chances are you have a mix of people in your life. Generally I find that people around you fall into one of two categories – energy givers or energy zappers.

The energy givers are the ones who when you spend even a short amount of time with them, they help to increase your positivity and can-do attitude. The energy zappers – well…..they don’t.

It’s often handy to take an inventory of those around you – both at work and out of work. It’s no secret that if you want to be more successful at something – hang around with others who are more successful at that task than you.

Therefore if you want to increase your positivity and success in whatever success means to you, it’s best to choose your company wisely, both in and out of the workplace.

If you can’t change other people around you – then change the people who you choose to surround yourself with.

Take a look at those around you – do your energy givers outweigh the zappers? If so you’re on the right track and more likely to achieve your success. If it’s the other way around – try cultivating some new friendships and see what happens – no doubt you’ll enjoy the results.
