Also, the description of great might be different for each person. I surround myself with people who wish to be in my company in an honest-loving manner because everyone has a bit of greatness inside them (just my opinion). Also, some believe we attract what we present to others and if you’re of greatness you’ll attract greatness, right? This was an awesome question!

Wish people what you wish for yourself. Treat others like you like to be treated. 🌺🌺🌺 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Yes, exactly! Thank you for this! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I would first say yes to all the above questions. Then I would say attraction is not enough. We need to find these people and let them know we desire their time. And how do we come to know what people would be great for us? Doing our due diligence at gaining self-knowledge. We cannot know who truly will be great for us until we understand where we are and where we want to go. But of course all of this is trial and error. Without putting ourselves out there to be rejected, we won’t come to know ourselves or who could be great for us. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, it is trial and error. The thing is that sometimes we try and we keep getting in touch with the “wrong” people… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Do different things- activity wise.

Read books about great people, their struggles and achievements. That way you are surrounded by their lessons. 2. Have good, healthy, positive and knowledgeable conversations. I have noticed that if we have a good conversation with a person, either the person gets bored because both are not on same page or the person becomes our good friend because they know we have something to share with each other and learn.

LikeLiked by 1 person I think you have to give them the opportunity to be great. Just creating an atmosphere where people are free to be themselves and doing the things that attract the right people. Being open and straight forward while also being friendly and respectful. I’ll admit, I’m pretty particular, so my circle’s pretty small. My strategy is to share great ideas and reel in the great people who nibble at them. I know I’m a bit eccentric, so it doesn’t offend me when I’m not an individual’s cup of tea anymore. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I would say that’s the whole idea, don;t you think? We need to be great ourselves so others would like to be around us. Maybe our greatness comes from the fact that we’re a little different and that difference reflects positively in our life in the lives of the people around us.

You need to be wise enough to see greatness in everyone and everything 😊 LikeLiked by 5 people Reply True, but maybe their greatness cannot be understand by us or maybe they don;t want to share it with us. Instead, we might only receive the not-so-great parts. I guess it’s a matter of how they want to be have around us and how we want to behave around them.

Feed the good beer to the great people, and give the cheap stuff to the not-so-great people. They will stumble home soon enough. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Good point! I’ll apply that 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Stop nagging. Stop complaining. For a day. The people who live for drama will retreat. And the people who live for meaning will approach.
