One great lesson I learnt this year is how to position myself properly for the right set of people to come in. When you attract better people into your life, everything else gets better. They are the driving force you need to propel you to greatness. Imagine having a beautiful car without fuel in it. I wonder how you can make it move but the moment you fill it up, you are good to go. Whenever I refer to gifts of men, this is what I mean. This illustration is for proper understanding: you find yourself at certain crossroads in your life, someone just walks in and things begin to move smoothly and at that moment you ask yourself “what just happened?”.
Many of us claim people are not willing to help us but we have failed to realize we drive people away with our attitude and negativity. Your kind of mindset will determine the kind of people that will get attracted to you. Some are even lucky, irrespective of how they position themselves, good people still want to associate with them. They have this aura around them, people see it and cannot just explain why they want to associate with them. Now, if you find yourself in this category, I must say you are very lucky. You see, God deliberately allows some people walk into our lives because He has a specific purpose He wants them to accomplish and of course it means you are a useful vessel. Failure to detect or discern makes you miss out on these wonderful things God has in store for you. Be careful, so you do not drive away your angels with your actions and character and just when you are about to take them serious, they are gone.
Self discovery is the first step to take. What is your inner awesomeness? What virtues do you possess? If you have genuine answers to these questions, you have taken a bold step and sooner or later, you would discover the real you. Having a positive mindset is another thing to take note of. Birds of a feather flock together. Positive minded people will never associate with negative minded people. Ensure you exhibit a positive attitude towards life and all that it brings. What is your lifestyle like? Would these set of people ordinarily want to associate with you? What kind of words proceed out of your mouth? If you have sincere answers to these questions, you are good to go. Be willing to make amends when corrected. Be open to criticism and lastly be thankful for life itself.
2019 is just around the corner, I feel this would help you start on a good note. Great achievements ahead for us all.
