It's Jack Canfield again...with one of the most important Mentorship lessons I have yet to send you. It's something high achievers have known throughout history... That is...surround yourself with positive people.
If you think about it, there are people you meet in life who are positive, nurturing and uplifting. These are people who believe in you, encourage you and applaud your victories. Contrast that with "toxic" people -- the dream-stealers, the negative ones, the people who bring tension, stress and disorder to your day.
Stop spending time with toxic people! And work hard to bring more positive, successful types into your life.
There's a valuable exercise my own mentor W. Clement Stone taught me. Make a list of everyone you spend time with, then put a plus sign (+) next to the positive ones and a minus sign (-) next to the toxic ones. You'll probably see a pattern begin to form.
Perhaps your entire workplace is filled with toxic people. Wow...what a revelation. Or perhaps your friends and family are constant nay-sayers, belittling you and undermining your self-esteem. Take steps now to either decrease the amount of time you spend with these toxic folks or set appropriate boundaries in how they relate to you.
To surround yourself with hundreds of other successful folks -- possibility-thinkers from around the world all studying and following The Success Principles in their lives -- consider attending one my powerful transformational trainings or international success symposiums.

SYRACUSE, New York, February 23, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse canceled a planned appearance by Terry McAuliffe, key supporter of U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, at his old Catholic high school, after discovering he made pro-abortion comments earlier this year in a radio interview.
The chairman of Sen. Clinton’s presidential campaign, McAuliffe was scheduled to give a presentation at Bishop Ludden High School in Syracuse Feb. 24, on his recently-published memoirs What a Party! My Life Among Democrats: Presidents, Candidates, Donors, Activists, Alligators and Other Wild Animals.
HH: What a pleasure now to welcome to the Hugh Hewitt Show a friend of mine on the airwaves, Pat Campbell. Pat is the morning drive guy in Orlando. He’s been at AM540 for a few years. He booms out every morning great good news. He’s one of the pros in our business. Pat, good to talk to you.
PC: Always a pleasure to be on your program, Hugh. I’m honored.
HH: Well Pat, I thought of you immediately when I played on the show yesterday Ric Keller, we’re now calling him Lawn Boy Ric Keller, or Ric Runs Like A Deere Keller, we played that, and I said where is this guy from, I’ve never heard of him, and I don’t mind time-serving back benchers, Pat, but he’s your Congressman.
PC: He is, he is, and the lawnmower analogy is certainly one that’s going to go down in the history books. Our listeners, who really are Ric Keller’s voting base here in Orlando, are livid. They’re calling him Benedict Arnold. I don’t know what’s going on with him. It’s one thing…he’s expressed these views before on the radio, but to actually go on the floor of the House and be one of the traitorous 12 as they were initially…I’m hearing, Hugh, they’re up to 17 now? Is that correct?
HH: 17 total.
PC: 17 total. It just blows my mind, and he is, he is undermining the President, he’s demoralizing the troops, he’s giving aid and comfort to the enemy, he has committed, if I’m to believe my listeners who are, like I said, absolutely livid, he’s committed political suicide. I mean, caller after caller not only to my show, but our afternoon host, Bud Hedinger as well, you know, not only do they regret the fact that they voted for him in the past, but they’ll never vote for him again.

Pat Campbell, Chaz Rampenthal With Hugh Hewitt
Hewitt: Hour 1 - Hugh talks with Orlando, Florida talk show host Pat Campbell about his Congressman, Lawnboy Ric Keller, and later talks about the will and probate mess caused by Anna Nicole Smith not having her will updated. Chaz Rampenthal from Legalzoom.com joined Hugh.
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Federal authorities have figured out how a pizza deliveryman wound up in the middle of a bizarre bank robbery scheme that ended with a bomb around his neck exploding, and the identities of the plotters, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.
Brian Wells, 46, robbed a suburban Erie bank on Aug. 28, 2003, with the bomb attached to his neck and then was killed when it exploded as he sat handcuffed in a parking lot while police waited for a bomb squad.
No one was charged as authorities struggled to determine who was behind the plot and whether Wells was an innocent victim or willing participant.
But the case has been solved and indictments are expected, likely by next month, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan was to make an official announcement at a Friday afternoon news conference.
The law enforcement official told the AP that Buchanan would not disclose what the investigators concluded, but would say that the government is confident they know how and why Wells died.
"The government knows what happened the day of the incident. We know all the details that led up to the death of Brian Wells and all the parties involved," the official said.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Legislation introduced in Tennessee would require death certificates for aborted fetuses, which likely would create public records identifying women who have abortions.
Rep. Stacey Campfield, a Republican, said his bill would provide a way to track how many abortions are performed. He predicted it would pass in the Republican-controlled Senate but would have a hard time making it through the Democratic House.
"All these people who say they are pro-life _ at least we would see how many lives are being ended out there by abortions," said Campfield.
The number of abortions reported to the state Office of Vital Records is already publicly available. The office collects records _ but not death certificates _ on abortions and the deaths of fetuses after 22 weeks gestation or weighing about 1 pound.
The identities of the women who have abortions are not included in those records, but death certificates include identifying information such as Social Security numbers.
Campfield's bill, introduced Monday, would give abortion providers 10 days following an "induced termination of a pregnancy" to file a death certificate.
House Judiciary Chairman Rob Briley, a Democrat, called Campfield's proposal "the most preposterous bill I've seen" in an eight-year legislative career.
"It is totally inconsistent with everything the law contemplates as it relates to anything close to that subject," he said.
The anti-abortion group Tennessee Right to Life has not yet taken a position on the death certificate bill, said spokeswoman Myra Simons. But she said the organization applauds the sponsors' efforts to "draw attention to the way abortion is handled in Tennessee."
Keri Adams, vice president of Planned Parenthood in Tennessee, on Wednesday called the proposal an attempt to terrorize frightened and vulnerable women who are seeking abortion.
"We certainly hope the Tennessee Legislature doesn't invest too much energy in this bill," she said. "We think it's clearly a violation of privacy, and potentially illegal concerning HIPAA regulations."
