that's what you will find here

I love this story I heard a long time ago from Wayne Dyer.  I am relating this from memory, but it goes something like this.

I was walking through my neighborhood this weekend enjoying a nice day, when a couple walked up to me. 

They asked me “What are the people like here?  We are interested in purchasing a home and moving here and we would like to know.”

I said, “Well, that depends.  What are the people like where you live now?:

They replied quickly, “Oh, they are terrible.  They talk about you behind your back.  They are small minded and mean.  They look for any reason to argue.  It’s a struggle.”

“Ah,” I said.  “That’s pretty much what you will find here.”

Then I wished them well and continued on the way on my walk.  Soon, another couple came up to me with the same question.

They asked me “What are the people like here?  We are interested in purchasing a home and moving here and we would like to know.”

I said, “Well, that depends.  What are the people like where you live now?:

This couple replied quickly as well.  “Oh, they are the best!  Everyone looks out for one another!  We have great neighborhood gatherings.  It’s a great community.  Honestly, we hate to leave!”

To that I replied, “That’s pretty much what you will find here.”

I think that story is so powerful.  We all know people that find negativity and frustration everywhere they go.  No matter who they are dealing with, it is a confrontation.  On the other hand, there are probably people in your life that seem impervious to that sort of negativity.  They seem to find the positive in each situation.  They lift others up (both figuratively and literally).  It reminds us that what we are seeing in our life now “that’s pretty much what you will find here.”

What you seek you shall find.

So when you understand that what you are looking for will expand in your life, in the words of Wayne Dyer, “you get really careful about what you are looking for!”

On this day, be intentional about what you seek out.  Look for the best in other people.  Look for the best in your work.  Look for the best in you.
