Do you surround yourself with the right people? | Neville Goddard Insight
The truth is that who we become in life can be influenced by the people that surrounds us.
Jim Rohn said: You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” This is food for thought.
To put this in a better perspective let me share a story in one of Neville Goddard’s material. It is the story of a young man in his twenties:
When I was in my early twenties, I found myself in a situation that was very unpleasant to me and I wanted to get out of it. After attending a lecture by Neville, I waited to speak to him afterwards. I briefly told him of my unhappy circumstances and was hoping he would offer some advice as to how to change them.
He smiled at me and said, “Don’t accept it.”
At that time in my life I did not fully grasp what Neville had been teaching. I thought he had misunderstood my question, and I tried to clarify my problem by stating that I had already made the choice to be in the situation I now found so unpleasant.
Neville again smiled and said, “Don’t accept it.”
I left his presence quite frustrated, thinking he had not understood my problem. I continued to read the two books I had by Neville. I gradually understood that regardless of the circumstances which surrounded me, I did not need to ACCEPT them as FINAL.
I began to imagine what I wanted rather than focus my thoughts on my negative surroundings. An event took place two weeks after I began my imaginal acts that was instrumental in bringing about my heart’s desire five months later – that of a BRAND NEW HOME.
Meanwhile, the situation that had been so depressing to me improved, and I spent the next five months planning what I would do in my new home.
Remember don’t accept IT
Did you GET the KEY point in that story?
If you did not get it:
It is these simple words by Neville Goddard: “Don’t accept it.”
That is the POWER of surrounding yourself with the right people or having a good mentor; Neville SAW what he wanted to SEE for this young guy; that the guy already had what he wanted. No stories, no drama or trying to reason with the rational MIND.
