Happy people

What are you a duck or an eagle?

When I first started my business I attended a seminar where we were asked this very question.

I looked around the room, and apart from a couple of people, I could see that most people were confused, just like me. We had no idea what ducks or eagles had to do with business. It turned out to be quite simple.

You have a choice.

You can either mix with those who walk around quacking like ducks and generally complaining about life. And as a result, life starts to feel harder, more negative and you stay stuck.

Or you can be with the soaring eagles who want to improve themselves and achieve their goals. And as a result, life is more likely to go according to plan, life feels lighter and you can propel yourself forward.

You see, the people who we choose to spend our time with are more influential than you may realise.

Think of someone you know who you could call a moaning Mildred. How do you feel after spending some time with them? Probably low, tired and maybe a bit grumpy.

Now think of someone you know who is happy Hilary. How do you feel after spending some time with them? Probably energetic, enthusiastic and positive.

People’s behaviour is infectious. So I encourage you to spend more time with happy Hilary and here are 5 reasons why.


Feeling good is easier 

Happy people have this incredible superpower of making you feel good effortlessly. It’s like they sprinkle happiness dust wherever they go. When you’re around them, you’ll find your mood lifting, like sunshine breaking through the clouds. Their positivity is infectious and it’s a beautiful thing. They remind you that feeling good is a choice you can make, even on tough days.

Being in the company of happy souls not only brightens your day but also makes navigating life’s ups and downs a whole lot easier and more enjoyable.

Life doesn’t feel as stressful

Happy people are like stress-busters in human form. Their positivity is a powerful antidote to life’s daily pressures. When you spend time with them, you’ll notice your stress levels dropping like autumn leaves. They act like a distraction, allowing you to step away from life’s frustrations. That space can then allow you to see what’s happening more clearly and which will bring forward alternative solutions.  

It’s like a soothing balm for your frazzled nerves. So, surrounding yourself with happy individuals isn’t just a mood-booster, it’s a stress-reducer. Their ability to ease your worries can lead to a happier, healthier and more relaxed you.

Your attention becomes positively focused 

Happy people have this incredible knack for helping you focus on the positives in life. It’s like having a built-in optimism booster around. Their natural tendency to see the silver lining in situations can be quite contagious. When you spend time with them, you start noticing the good things around you more often. It’s as if they have a special lens that filters out negativity, leaving you with a clearer view of life’s brighter side. So, being around happy individuals not only lifts your spirits but also cultivates a more positive outlook on life, making each day a little sunnier.

You can see opportunities 

Ever noticed how happy people seem to have a knack for spotting opportunities where others see obstacles?

Their positivity acts like a pair of glasses that help you see the hidden possibilities in everyday situations. When you hang around with them, you start noticing opportunities you might have missed otherwise. Their ‘can-do’ attitude is not only infectious but also inspiring, nudging you to step out of your comfort zone and seize those chances for personal and professional growth.

Inner critic, challenge

You are more likely to show your good self

Happy people help you bring out your best self. When you’re surrounded by positivity and encouragement, it’s like having a cheering squad for your inner superhero. Happy individuals bring out your talents, boost your self-confidence and make you feel more comfortable being yourself.

They create an environment where you can shine without judgment or fear. So, being in the company of such individuals not only brightens your day but also helps you reveal your true potential.

I regularly talk about nurturing your inner cheerleader, however, it’s also important to surround yourself with the right people. Individuals who are on your wavelength and want what’s best for you. Individuals who are on your side, helping you to navigate life, even when it gets challenging. Moaning Mildred will only bring you down and allow you to dwell however happy Hilary will help you to break through so you have the energy to live life how you want.
