S02 Ep04: Who Are the People that Influence Your Thinking?

The thoughts that gain your attention and focus in life have a major impact on your transformational experience. If you want to experience the greatest amount of healing and freedom in your life, it is critical that you address how you think.

But are you aware of your input of thoughts around you? Who are the people that have the greatest influence in your thought life?  Whether you are aware of it or not, there are certain people that influence your thinking in many ways. They are often either encouraging you in healthy directions or reinforcing toxic patterns in your life.

If you want to change how you think, you will also need to become more aware of the people that you allow to have influence in your thought life. As humans, we are influenced by those we spend time with and open our hearts to. We cannot expect ourselves to experience breakthrough and growth if we do not make adjustments in who we listen to and receive input from.

When it comes to influence of others, we have to be aware not only of the words people share, but the atmosphere they carry. We as creatures can leak our attitudes onto others. Being around negative people for long periods of time will have a negative effect on your life. Having someone who is fear filled, depressed or critical can infect the strongest of people. That is because you and I were made to influence those around us. So we need to be intentional about our inner circle and those who have influence over our thoughts.
