One fine evening, you are feeling a bit low and have fallen into deep thought. The door bell rings and as soon as you open the door, you find yourself surrounded by your happy and energetic friends. Suddenly, you have drastically changed from a leafless plant into a fruitful one. You feel a surge of energy!
People are Optimistic, Pessimistic, Positive, Negative and the list goes on. These people make our society and we are a part of it.
Daily we are surrounded by many people across our periphery. It could be our friends, loved ones, colleagues and acquaintances. They all have different attitudes, nature, and behaviour. Some like us and some dislike us. Some are jealous of us while others feel energetic with our presence. Few in the society motivate us, few of them demoralize us and obviously some remain neutral.
Whoever the people are and whatever their likes and dislikes are it is us that will decide who we surround ourselves with. Who makes us happy? Whose company makes our day brilliant or gives us positive vibrations? Such people create ripples in our life and make our environment pacifying and tranquilizing.
We must always associate with people who make our day brilliant and should filter those people out who drain our energy and bring feelings of unhappiness. If we keep hanging onto these anti-social elements, it not only drains our confidence but also injects negative pulses inside our sole and makes us pessimists.
Have you ever seen a big tree laden with beautiful flowers? Have you ever observed a lake overwhelmed with lotuses? These germinate when given optimal conditions and proper care in a suitable environment. Similarly, we grow smarter, better and ingenious in our optimal conditions. We become superlative and positive when we spend our precious time with energized people.
A team does better and gives their best performances when all team members are enthusiastic and support each other. Praise each other’s work and respect it. Even one member in a team can spoil the team’s spirit and that will reflect in individual performances.
“A bad fish can spoil the whole lake.”
Filter out such pessimists, negative sources and uproot them from your life. Soothe your heart with the ecstatic, energetic and positive people and mix their energy with your soul and heart and make yourself a powerful and influential personality, full of energy like a bulldozer.
Keep Smiling.. 🙂

The Bible teaches us to give credit where credit is due:
Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor (Romans 13:7).
Credit and Debit. These are two efficacious words which becomes our part of life once we start our professional lives and will always follow us like our shadows till our old age.
We always crave for credits more than a hungry beggar craves for food. Never take credits which are not ours.
The more we run after something, the farther it goes.
In my previous article, Joy of Giving we saw, the more we give the more we are happier. Similarly, it goes with giving Credit as well.
The more we give Credit to our team members and loved ones, the more we get respect from them.
On the contrary, the more we take credits the more honesty debits from our heart. We lose respect along with love. People treat us dishonest.
It’s like the more we spread love, the more we are loved.
I always give credits to my parents, friends and loved ones. I learn from them. I try to adopt their habits and once I become confident then I give them hundred percent credits for making me a better and mature person.
Apart from this, we must listen to our critics as well and give full credit to them as they enhance our mistakes but we must take it in positive sense. We must filter the negative waves and transform it into positive forms. These people make us stronger and mentally tough – they deserve credits too.
Whatever we adopt, however our team performs and helps us to complete our tasks or goals always give credit to them and in addition to this, give credit to them in front of your team members and colleagues. Not only they deserve this, it makes them more confident and they start trusting you and it strengthen our relationships.
Result is Crystal clear.
Next time when you want to achieve something, they would be the first to stand by you not even in good times but also when everything goes wrong with you.
The main reason is, you have built bond via trust and trust is the root of every relationship.
The longer it is, the stronger your relationships are.
Giving credits could be in form of – Praise, Love, Trust, and one Liner and even sincere Thanks to your team members and loved ones.
Before I sign off, I would like to give credit to my few friends out of never-ending list, whom I trust blindly.
Kartikay Vyas – He is gem of my life and motivates me at every point. He taught me important lessons of life; he is workaholic. We share great bonding. I give him all the Credit whatever I am.
Shailee Sisodia – She has been the biggest morale booster and always supports me. I started reading because of her support. The credit goes to her for giving me this habit.
Ashley, Surag, Pankil, Mahesh, Saurav – My college mates and now are pillars of my life. Be a Cricket match, be a weekend party or my bad days, these guys always stood by me and kicked me wherever I went wrong.
The list is endless but finally my family – my parents, wife Charu and sweet sister, without them I am nothing and give my hundred percent credit for making me stronger and tolerating me.
Friends, give Credit to your loved ones, mentors, team mates and make your life beautiful and achieve the impossible. Keep Smiling.. 🙂
