"The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face."
William M. Thackeray

If you have ever had the fortunate opportunity to happen upon a still pond on a crystal clear day, you know firsthand what an awe inspiring site it can be. There, with nary a ripple crossing the water, the pond becomes nature’s own looking glass — brilliantly reflecting back the splendor of the surrounding scenery.

The pond’s smooth surface radiantly reflects back the beauty of the outside world, allowing the privileged visitor a rare chance to behold a magnificent masterpiece hand crafted by God. At this one magical moment, when heaven and earth combine to put on one awesome, breath taking show — nature treats us to what may literally be the greatest show on earth.

"It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words."
Eric Hoffer

The serene surface of the pond reflects back images of the white, puffy clouds floating lazily in the sky above, a sky so bathed in a heavenly blue that it almost hurts our eyes. Then, as if nature purposely wanted to add a dazzling contrast for our viewing pleasure; the lush, vibrant, vividly rich green of the trees and neighboring pastures alike is added for good measure.

Words can scarcely describe the omnipotent combination of color, beauty and brilliance the pond’s reflection provides. Yet the reflection off the pond’s surface is nothing more than the water mirroring its surrounding environment. After all, if the pond was surrounded by an unsightly landfill or junk yard, the reflection wouldn’t be quite as pleasing, would it? And when you think about it, doesn’t this same premise hold for us as well? As a matter of fact, yes, it does.

"The Law of Attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the nature of your thought life."
Joseph Edward Murphy

If we surround ourselves with positive powered people and consistently immerse ourselves in a positive charged environment, doesn’t it stand to reason that we will reflect back a positive, powerful approach to living as well? If we constantly focus our attention and efforts on being our best while encouraging those around us to do their best as well, isn’t there a better than average chance that we will paint a picture of excellence for all of us to enjoy?

On the other hand, if we routinely encircle ourselves with negative, skeptical, pessimistic individuals, what effect do you suppose this pathetic assemblage of going nowhere types will have on us? Come on, this doom and gloom crowd is going nowhere and wants to take you along for the ride — and this is one ride you can ill afford to make.

"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."
Edith Wharton

Have you ever once considered that maybe, just maybe, the type of environment you choose for yourself goes a long way in determining the type of reflection you make — as well as the direction you take — in life? Doesn’t it make sense that a positive charged environment will in all likelihood result in a positive charged lifestyle, where anything and everything you’ve ever dreamed of having, being and doing is well within your reach?

If you truly want to make something positive, something memorable, something really spectacular of your limited time on earth, you must first begin by surrounding yourself with an array of positive influences.

You need to surround yourself with positive people, for these are the types of friends who can and will bring out your very best. And you need to surround yourself with a nonstop diet of positive thoughts, persistently focusing on the good and overlooking the bad.

But hey, don’t stop there. You need to make absolutely certain that you also become a positive source of energy, enthusiasm and excitement for those around you as well. By becoming a reflecting beacon of hope, faith and optimism, you can light up your life while lighting the lives of the people you are privileged to meet and touch daily. And that’s a nice reflection you can definitely learn to live with.

The Bottom Line: When you start spreading light around the world, you’ll begin seeing nice reflections everywhere you look.
