For those that are no into self-development, this concept can sometimes be a little confusing. So let's break it down.
Someone asked me, "my co-worker complains all the time and she's just never positive. She annoys me SO MUCH! How is this a mirror of me? And how am I attracting this person into my life?"
While you may not be a complainer, and you may not be a negative person, there is a reason why this co-worker is in your life. The fact that she annoys you says that you are allowing this person's energy to come into yours and affect you. And as a result, it may affect your mood. So in this instance, you have the power of CHOICE. You can choose to allow this person's negativity to affect you, or you can choose to feel positive and not feel annoyed. Your feelings are a result of your thoughts. Also, you can take this situation to another level. You can be the example of positivity and TEACH your co-worker what a positive person looks like. Keep in mind that a person can only be that which has been modeled before them. If they have no example of a positive person in their life, they have no idea how to be positive. This is a great opportunity for you to "BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD" (Ghandi). Imagine the impact you could have in your co-worker's life if you teach through your actions. THAT is an amazing gift!!
