What does this mean for us?
This influences our thinking, communication and view of the world – all day! Take onboard the number of people YOU come in contact with each day. You have the potential to influence and impact them. People are very open and receptive.
If you work in a field where you serve people, then consider this – you could potentially be ‘polluting’ their thought processes based on your own negative daily habit!
3 key things to remember:
- Focus on how you start your own day.
Do you check Facebook as soon as you wake up? Or your email? Have you ever considered you are giving permission to the world to infiltrate your thoughts?
- Have gratitude.
Get focused on what’s going on in your world. Have thanks for what will be. Have faith in gratitude.
- Your social media feed.
Social media is now an essential part of everyone’s day. Is yours of a positive influence or a negative?
Consider your habits and how your thoughts can have a massive impact on those you come in contact with every day.
