June 24, 20244 min read

Negative people can impact your life, but so can positive people. You are wise to avoid caustic people, but you are even wiser to associate with positive people.

Have you given much thought lately to your close associates? Take a moment to do so. Do they help you become a better, stronger person? 

If you want to become a better leader, a more productive person, a more loving spouse, a better parent, etc., choose to spend time with positive people. Let me suggest 6 types of people who will improve your life through associating with them.

Decorative LineAssociate with visionary people.

Visionaries are inspiring people. They have the ability to see things before they take place. They exude energy. They are “cup-half-full” people. Picture a sailboat cruising along with the wind at its back. The boat is going somewhere. You just need to hold on for the ride.

Everyone needs a visionary person in his life. He or she is an uplifting person who encourages you to reach your highest potential. If you find yourself discouraged, give your visionary associate a call. He or she will recharge your batteries and encourage your heart.

Associate with industrious people.

Industrious people work hard. They don’t make excuses. They plan, work diligently, and accomplish their goals. They are people who take action.

Let’s be honest. Sometimes we feel sorry for ourselves. We explain away why we didn’t do something or complete a task. We make excuses.

Industrious people faithfully plow away at their tasks and rarely fail to accomplish them.   

People assume that successful people are super-talented individuals who hardly have to work. Truthfully, most successful people have average ability but learn to work very hard. They stick to their responsibilities until they accomplish what they set out to do.

Hanging around industrious people helps you become industrious. You see how hard they work. You find yourself following their example. If you want to be successful in life, spend time with industrious people. They will help you “raise the bar” in your life.

Associate with creative people.

Creative people brim with ideas and possibilities. They appear to have a never-ending flow of potential. They think outside the box. Instead of saying, “It can’t be done,” they find a way to “get it done.”

There are few things that energize you more than hanging around creative people. They constantly challenge you to consider your potential and achieve your dreams.

Do you remember dreams from your childhood? Have you given up on those dreams? Creative people are dreamers who never give up on their dreams. They  challenge you to dream again and find ways to help you accomplish your dreams, even during your adult years.

Associate with encouraging people.

Encouraging people lift others up. They are unselfish. They focus on others. They always seem to have the right words to say at the right time. They connect your heart with theirs. They give you just the right amount of space to share your burdens but find ways to minimize your fears and concerns.

Every person should have an encouraging individual to whom he or she can turn. That person is a good listener and an uplifting soul who sends you away with a heart full of optimism, even during the most difficult times.

Associate with happy people.

Happy people are fun. They know how to live life without taking it too seriously. Their smiles are infectious. You delight in hearing their laugh and feel like your burdens roll away when you’re around them.

Find happy people to hang around. We live in a world filled with tension and sorrow. Being around happy people causes that tension to fade into the background.

Associate with people who believe in you.

People who believe in you will always be your friends. They see you for what you can become, instead of what you are. They challenge you to live up to your best. They will not “give you a pass” to give up. They believe in you too much. 

Let’s be honest. Sometimes we give up on ourselves. We want to quit. A person who believes in you will not let you do so. They are by your side, in your life, and next to your heart. Whatever they need to do to support you, they will do it. They truly believe in you, even when you don’t believe in yourself.

Surrounding yourself with positive people is essential in life. Sometimes, it is what keeps you going. So, choose wisely the people you let into your life.
