Want Success? Surround Yourself with Positive Women – by the YMag Team

Craving success? For many of us, we know we were put on this planet to succeed. We want to change the world, make an impact and me a game-changer.

Did you know one of the best strategies to achieve success is to surround yourself with positive women?

To do this, you’ll need to do something that may feel uncomfortable to you – assess your current friendships and relationships and reduce your time with those who don’t bring feelings of connection.

Pay attention to how you feel before, during and after interacting with someone. Do you come away feeling energized and refreshed? Or do you feel drained after you’ve spent time with them?

Write down the qualities of the people you spend the most time with. Would you call them positive people? Now think of how they interact and affect you.

  • Do they know your goals?
  • Do they make you feel like you have what it takes to reach your goals?
  • Do they support you?
  • Do they make you feel attractive?
  • Do they bring you joy?
  • Do you feel happy and energized after spending time with them?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, you’re probably already surrounded by the great women you need.

If people make you feel anxious, uncomfortable or just, down – these are all good indicators that you need to take action.

In some cases, such as family, cutting them away from your life is difficult so you may choose to reduce the amount of time you spend in their company. You need to ensure you are maximising your available time with women who lift you higher, so do whatever you need to create this space in your life.

Try these simple tips:

  • Set your boundaries
  • Don’t be afraid to speak up
  • Stand up for yourself.
  • Be unapologetic.
  • Don’t feel guilty – when someone repeatedly brings negativity into your life, you have a right to decide if it’s for you or not.

Like attracts like, and if you want to be fully successful, you must surround yourself with positive women.

Positive people will not only support you in your goals, but offer you fresh opinions, suggest solutions, provide guidance and support.
