Are you suffering from a lack of enthusiasm for life? Do you experience a general sense of pessimism and hopelessness? Does everything and everyone around you seems to strengthen the idea of a sad and bleak world?
If you find yourself in this state, your company probably consists of friends who have similar attitudes. If you ever try to break out of your funk, the company of your friends pulls your spirits down. They don’t do it intentionally but their sense of hopelessness convinces you of the uselessness of your own efforts.
At the same time, I am sure you can recall at least one instance when, just being in the company of a positive person or a group of positive people lifted up your spirits. It probably felt magical to see the positive shift in your attitude. It probably left you yearning for more.
Recently, I had a similar experience. I attended a club here in Bangalore, by the name of Game Changer Forum. I had no idea what it was about and just went to check it out. And what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be! I met with a group of positive, courageous and motivated people. And my spirits found wings!
Crowds have an energy of their own. During riots, people in a crowd can do things that they otherwise won’t consider doing, that they might consider downright wrong.
This is true of being in a positive group as well. You find that in a positive group, the group energy will pull you out of your fears, limiting beliefs and doubts, and make you cross over into exciting zones you have never dared venture into.
Energy is infectious, and it multiplies in groups of similar minded people.
So choose the right groups
The most noteworthy thing here is that, while you become susceptible to group energy and do things you would otherwise not do, you have the choice of associating with the right groups in life. You are not left at the mercy of your situation. Just move to a more conducive company. Company that can help lift you up, company where you can lift others up, and share in their happiness, enthusiasm and hope.
You may be feeling down in the dumps, you may be feeling that you don’t have it in you to go all the way. But you don’t need to go all the way alone. Just get yourself into good company.
Let them help you on your way, let the Universe support you in your journey.
Until next time….
