It helps to cultivate the qualities in ourselves that we’re looking for in others.
Hello, Sandra Pollock here from Open Mind Coaching. I hope that your week has started really well.
It is Monday so I thought I’d do a live chat with you today and I hope that you’ll be able to join me.
So what I’m going to talk about is another thought that I’ve been having. I do like to share these and I hope that they are valuable for you.
Um what I want to share with us is the whole issue around positivity. Now I’m really glad that there is so much nowadays about, you know, being positive and looking or the right people to associate with, the right people to hang out with, and when we’re looking for the right people to help us, to help build our lives, to help us with our careers and our business, you now you want to associate with the right type of people – people how are positive.
But the thought that I have been having around being a positive person. It’s always good to be able to go out there and find positive people, but are you and positive person? Are you someone that you would like to be friends with? You know, would you choose you if you were trying to find someone that’s positive, trying to find people to uplift and associate with? Would you be the person you were looking for?
And I think that in order to answer that question we really do need to be honest with ourselves about what we are like most of the time. What is our first response: and what I mean by that is, you if something happens, are you someone that will immediately see negative and have to bring yourself around minutes later: five, ten minutes. You know half an hour later to the positive? Or are you someone who immediately tries to see the silver lining in every cloud.
I believe that both of those behaviours are practiced behaviours.
So, if you are looking for a positive person, you’re more likely to be looking for someone who will help you be positive, to see the silver lining more quickly.
We all get down. We all will have situations we are upset, frustrated and down about. I’m not saying that I don’t. I certainly do but I don’t like to live there.
So when I’m feeling like that, I want to find somebody who is going to help me recover from that more quickly. I think it’s important that if I’m looking for that, I need to be that sort of person to my friends and those around me.
So today I’m just bringing to your attention the fact that if you’re looking for positivity, then you need to be a positive person too. You need to make sure that you practice skills that ensure that you are positive most of the time and that you will be a good friend and a good find.
So I hope that that was beneficial and I’m wishing you a fabulous week.
And be the positivity that you’re looking for your friends, to your family, to your associates, as well as choosing well for yourself. And we all want to be chosen, then we need to make sure that we’re worthy of that choice.
So thank you for stopping in and I look forward to catching up with you soon.
Do let me know whether this has been valuable and anything else that I can help you with.
Have a great week.
Sandra Pollock from Open Mind Coaching saying ta tar for now. Take care. Bye bye.
