Do you brag or do you inspire?
I had a really interesting conversation this week which revealed that while I like to share my wins, the person I was chatting to steers away from this and prefers to share his problems.
He doesn’t want to sound as though he’s bragging, which is fair enough.
My view however, is that when you share your wins, from a loving space, you actually inspire the other person.
Many people lack inspiration in their life.
As a general rule we tend to surround ourselves with people who are getting the same sorts of results as we are.
And this just reinforces that struggle and pain and negative relationships and outcomes are just a part of life, when it is not.
Every single person can have a much happier, smoother life, full of joy and ease and positivity.
Yet many people don’t realise this because all they see is the negative.
All their friends mirror this struggle back to them, and it can be really easy to get stuck in this way of thinking that has you getting the same results as you’ve always got.
I’m sure some of you can relate.
Yet imagine what could happen if people started to share their wins.
Not in an egotistical way.
But in a way that allowed the other person to see what is possible.
That happiness and ease and joy and deep nourishing relationships do actually happen to people they know?
That life can be a blossoming flower as opposed to a dead thorny rose bush.
So this week I encourage you to share something good about your life with a friend.
The only reason a person brags is because they don’t feel good about themselves and feels the need to talk themselves up.
Share from a place of love.
Share the love.
Happy experiences, gorgeous engagements and satisfying wins; that’s what we all want to hear more of, to know they do happen to everyday people like you and me.
The more we focus on the positive, the more positive we attract into our lives and the more love we give to ourselves and the people around us.
That’s the key to developing your relationship with YOU.
And when you have a great relationship with you, this helps you connect more whole-heartedly with others.
