February 24: Birds

“Birds of a feather flock together.”

This is a great quote.  It means like-minded people are attracted to one another.  We all vibrate on a certain frequency, according to the thoughts we think, and how those thoughts make us feel.  People who are vibrating on a similar frequency are attracted to us and we are attracted to them.  People who vibrate on a different frequency are repelled from us, and us from them.

How can we vibrate at a HIGHER frequency?  Through visualization, thinking higher thoughts, and feeling progressively better, I believe we up-level our energy and vibrational frequency.  I have learned that when we sleep or when we meditate, we pause all thinking and feeling, slow momentum, and the reset button is pushed.

We are attracted to people who think alike, speak about similar things, and do similar activities, because we are social animals and we know that our lives will seem easier, and we will feel more comfortable and feel like we are better off, around others who will encourage us, further our cause, and continue to redefine us as we think we are.  We hang out with like-minded people because they will help us to remember who we think we are, and we think they will help and empower us to accomplish our goals and become more of who we want to be.

But what if we want to change?  What if we want MORE?  What if we want to expand into more of who we actually are?  What if we want to improve, grow, evolve, and progress?

Are the people around you lifting you up or holding you back?

Ever heard the term, “guilty by association?”  My parents once told me about a boy who was walking home from school one day when a car pulled up alongside him.  Three of the “cool” kids he sometimes saw at school offered him a ride.  He thought, “Awesome!  I didn’t know they even knew who I was.  If I’m with them maybe I’ll be considered cool, too!”  They pulled over into a gas station on the way to drop him off at home and told him to watch the car.  They all ran in for drinks and even brought one back for him.  He was ecstatic, until three cop cars appeared out of nowhere and arrested all four of them for robbing the gas station.  He ended up going to jail because he was with them.  Guilty by association.

The opposite is true, as well.  GREATNESS BY ASSOCIATION is also a thing.  When we choose to surround ourselves with people who will make us greater, stretch our thinking and decision-making to new heights, and teach us new ways of being through their examples, eventually it happens.  The right people can and will help us to become a better version of ourselves every single day.  Great people will help, encourage, and push us towards greatness, all along the way.  THESE are the people we want to be caught with.

I once asked a man what his secret to greatness was.  He replied, “Two things: the books a read, and the very small amount of people I surround myself with.  That’s it!”

Today’s challenge for myself:  Today I will focus on fostering, nurturing, or starting a relationship with someone I consider great, who I believe will help and encourage me to be the best version of myself I can possibly be.  I will stretch my mind and create opportunities for new experiences.  I will lean into the challenging and difficult, knowing this will empower me to expand into MORE of who I am.  I will remember that, MY BEST IS YET TO COME.


I highly recommend reading or listening to the book, Psycho-Cybernetics, by Maxwell Maltz.
