repost: 人進步的最好方法,是去接近那些充滿正能量的人

Written by Frank M. Lin 12/13/2016 4:53 am @ Union City, California Source: http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/JfnVqDC8VbTPb0xc6F-PMw 人進步的最好方法,是去接近那些充滿正能量的人 2016-12-13 導師型企業家 問題:怎麼才能每天都收到這種文章呢? 答案:只需要點擊圖片上邊的《導師型企業家· 鄒文靜》關注即可! 導讀 人是一種群居動物,很容易會接受周圍人的暗示。所以,你是一個怎麼樣的人,很大程度上取決於你所結交的人是怎麼樣的人。如果你想要進步,巨蛆靠近那些充滿正能量的人,他們積極而陽光,靠近他們,很容易變成和他們一樣,努力又熱愛生活。 古人有云:“近朱者赤,近墨者黑”。能量是會傳染的,如果你想有所改變,想有所作為,那麼首先該做的,是去接近那些充滿正能量的人,因為他們能讓你意識到你還年輕,你很幸運,你的生活其實還充滿著希望。不管你現在到了什麼年齡,居住在哪個城市,有一份怎樣的工作,你身邊經常接觸的人群中一定會被分成這樣兩類人: 一類是每次見面或聊天都是“老樣子”的那類人,和你說自己沉悶的生活,乏味的伴侶,甚至沒什麼前途的工作,那神情裡似乎沒有什麼關於未來的驚喜; 而你身邊的另一類人,是每次見面都有新鮮事分享的人,他們不一定是你最要好的朋友。或許你們還在某些問題和價值觀上還有過嚴重的分歧,可是這場聊天卻充滿希望,信息量極大,讓你覺得自己的生活中也有什麼地方值得改變或者嘗試。 在他們的身上,有什麼東西在深深地吸引著你,能賦予你更廣闊的思索。我把第一種人稱為消極型朋友,第二種人稱為積極型朋友。 01 能量是會傳染的 如果你不相信我的這番論斷,大可以打開聊天工具,群發一條信息“你最近在做什麼?”我敢說,有相當一部分人會這樣回答你,“我能幹什麼,還是那樣唄”,而有一部分人,會這樣告訴你,“我最近在讀xx的書!”“我這個月報了個學習班,想利用一下下班後的時間。”“我鍛煉身體呢,剛跑完了五公里。 ” 如果你選擇和第一類朋友聊下去,你們聊天的內容大致會包括“無法上漲的工資”“買不起的房子”“永遠在反對著自己的父母”,偶爾他/她會說到“我的女/男朋友實在不理解我”,或者“我明明努力為何生活依舊沒有半點起色!”你大概會附和著,繼而想到自己悲催的人生,也有著幾分相似的不容易。 如果你選擇和第二種朋友聊下去,你大概會發現他/她的生活彷若是一出傳奇,明明是每個人都公平享用著24小時的每一天,他/她卻有時間用來跑步讀書看電影。 當你們結束這番話的同時,你也大概會在心裡激起這樣的想法,“要不然今天下班去那個新開的健身房跑步吧!”“要不要把他/她介紹的書買一本? ” 如果你真得開始了什麼實際的行動,在下班後去實踐那個第二類朋友所帶給你的啟發,那恭喜你,你成功地吸收了一個積極型朋友所帶來的正能量,而如果你選擇和第一個朋友把沉重的話題聊下去,我不確定你會不會成為那個“突然間受到鼓舞開始加倍努力”的那個人。 02 人生那麼多的事可以做 雞毛蒜皮並不足以成為你的全世界 從能量的角度上來講,我從一個“積極型朋友”身上接收的正能量,永遠比“消極型朋友”多得多。處於一個“消極”環境和“積極”環境,對於一個人身心發展的巨大區別。 我曾經有過一段比較頹廢的日子,不知道人生的目標在哪裡,心裡明明知道“應該去努力”,卻不知道要從什麼事情上開始。 那時的我,覺得自己的生活就是一個無底的泥潭,沒有一個令我期待的未來。我覺得有那麼多雞毛蒜皮的小事讓我擔憂或者煩惱,我常常問自己“你人生的寄託在哪裡”,無聊害得我無法生出一丁點奮鬥的意志。 … Continue reading
