Choose To Be a Positive Person

All wealthy and powerful people have something in common. They built their wealth and power by surrounding themselves with people who were wealthier and more powerful than they were.

The people you surround yourself with are the people you will become like. If you surround yourself with positive, ambitious people, you too will become positive and ambitious.

In this video, filmed at the Titanium Mastermind in the Dominican Republic, Chris Lakey talks about the importance of who you surround yourself with.


When we talk about surrounding yourself with people who you aspire to, we’re not talking about hanging around them and being a pest.

Instead, find out what you can help them with. By helping them get what they want, they can help you get what you want. They already know they can’t accomplish their goals alone, and they’re always looking for people with a good attitude who can help them out.

What kind of people should you surround yourself with? For a start, find people who specialize in things you’re not good at and can complement your strengths.

Think about your friends and why you like them. Are they upbeat, generous and humorous? Then think about people you don’t like. Why don’t you like them? Do they have annoying habits and let you down?

Chances are, you prefer to surround yourself with a certain kind of person. Aim to be that person and others will want to be around you.


No likeable trait – or an unlikeable one for that matter – is innate at birth. It can be learned.

Write down the top 5 traits that turn you off in other people – it might be a habit of blaming others or a tendency to take credit for what they didn’t do. Then write down the top 5 traits that attract you to other people – it could be reliability, generosity, humor and so on.

If you’re young, you can work on developing all the attractive qualities in yourself. Don’t leave it until later in life. Then, people will want to work with you and you’ll be the one admired by them.
