Strive to hold the highest consciousness possible and aspire to surround yourself with the RIGHT people. People that reflect the qualities you want to see in your own life. This will help you keep your focus and energy on the business of utilising your excellence and exposing your brilliance.

When viewed from a spiritual perspective, people are in essence a reflection of our inner aspirations and people that inspire you are merely people that mirror the qualities that you are waiting and ready to express yourself.

People who Irritate you, can be Great Teachers
From a different perspective it is true too that people, who irritate us are also a reflection of some characteristics that we are hiding from ourselves or aspects that we are unclear on in our own lives. So if anyone irritates you, look at the reason that they are so challenging and see if that may be an area that needs work in your own life.

This is a very powerful tool that when used properly will allow you to uncover some very real issues in your own life. The issues that you find the most irritating in someone else is often just a reflection of a characteristic that you are dissatisfied with in your own life.

Unlock your Greatness
Have the courage to be completely honest with yourself and utilise this very empowering process to unlock issues that may be keeping you trapped in mediocrity.

When you make this small shift in the way you view people around you. You empower yourself to utilise the feedback from people in your environment to your advantage.

Why do some People bug you?
Take a critical look at the people all around you and try to identify people that are bugging you. Explore the reasons why they are driving you batty and record these in your journal.

Take a deep breath, have the courage to be brutally honest with yourself. Examine the list again, exploring each one from the perspective of “Could this be my issue” and then see what action is necessary to eliminate these negative characteristics from your own life.

This can be a very powerful success tool in your success toolkit. As you observe the people around you, it is possible to utilse this information, to explore your own philosophy, characteristics and attitude.

If someone irritates you, or you find something about them extremely distasteful, try to explore the reasons why you feel that way. It may be that they are just the wrong people for you and they are on a completely different path to you, but it could also offer you a great insight into your own shortcomings.

Learn the art of understanding your responses to your world and the people in it. This skill offers you a wonderful window into your inner self and gives you the ability to identify areas of challenge or weakness, which you may not have observed in yourself, had you not had the courage to see through the eyes of those who irritate you.

Surround yourself with the right People
It is far easier to be inspired every day, when the people you surround yourself with, are people who support you, reflect your values and beliefs and are on the same track as you. So obviously, it is good practice to work to only surround yourself with the right people.

My invitation today is to have the courage to explore the people who you do not want around you and to then try to discover why, you don’t want them in your life. Once you have explored and learned as much as you can about all the things you don’t like. Use this to examine your own life and see how you can use this information to help you to improve and grow.
