“Spending Time With Motivational People”
There’s nothing worse than being around people who are cynical and negative! Someone once said, “You are the average of the 5 people you hang with.” Think about that….if you’re hanging with a group of cynical, negative hopeless, people then, guess what? You have a good chance of becoming this way as well. I believe that this is partly why most parents don’t want their children hanging around kids they believe are not good for their children to be around. Scripture says, “Bad company corrupts good manners.” (1 Corinthians 15:33 ) Who we are around has either a negative or positive impact on us.
Who are you hanging around? I mean, are they helping to advance you, encouraging you, hold you accountable? Do they believe in you? Do you feel empowered when you’re around them? If the answer is no, then you’re probably hanging around the wrong people.
If we are going to achieve our purpose, dreams and destiny, we’ve got to surround ourselves with motivational people. Motivational people are people who speak life into us. They are people who encourage us, invest in us and build us up. Being with motivational people is empowering! In fact, when you’re with them, you will feel your spirit swelling up! Motivational people have a special energy about themselves that motivates us to act! These people are the fuel we need when our tanks are getting low on faith and hope.
What does “motivate/motivational” mean?

On a personal level, once I started hanging with motivational people, my life shift to a higher level. I use to be of the mindset that I should only spend time with the saved, sanctified and holy ghost filled folk, not realizing I was limiting my capacity for expansion. Once I decided to diversify my relationships, my destiny, streams of income, talents and abilities increased! For the first time in my life, I began to actually experience God’s realm of multiplication! I’m not bragging, I’m just telling it like it is. I’m so glad to be in the space I’m in right now! My sphere of influence today looks nothing like it did several years ago. Matter of fact, I don’t even look like the same person I did several years ago! That’s just how much of a life changing affect spending time with motivational people has had on my life. I advise you to do the same! You’ll be glad you did!
