or not – Looking For PEARLS To Surround Me
I don’t know about you, but back in the 90’s I tried several of the Network Marketing and Multi-Level Marketing programs without too much success. But by attending their seminars and speaking with other people I did learn plenty on the type of people I want to surround myself with.
How many of you when you suggest a new business idea to family or friends receive a negative response! Do they tell you that it won’t work?
When they see how excited you are, shouldn’t they be encouraging you to go forward with it and wish you luck and success.
I was met with a lot of negative people and I believe that it played some small part in me not moving forward with some of the programs and giving them the effort they deserved.
One of them was when the Internet was really taking off in the mid 90’s before the dot.com bust. I wish I hadn’t listened to all the negativity and really moved forward with that one.
Then I met some great people and in part of the training they talked about surrounding yourself with PEARLS. What are they?
They are people who are:
P positive – to provide encouragement
E enthusiastic – about what you are doing
A achievers, ambitious – who can help you along the way
R risk takers – willing to take a risk on you
L leaders – someone to emulate
S sincere – mean everything they say
This made a tremendous difference to my whole outlook on life. While they are all important, the one characteristic I value the most in people is sincerity.
When I really looked at the people surrounding me, I found that most of them were so negative that I couldn’t stand it anymore. I stopped talking to some of them and looked for PEARLS to surround me.
The Law of Attraction says like attracts like. How true that is? I started seeing immediate results and suddenly I was attracting people with positive attitudes and left the people with negative attitudes behind.
Do you have PEARLS surrounding you?
There is nothing bugging me today!
