It is said we are the sum of the 5 people with are with the most. That can be an energizing concept or terrifying, right?!!
I was with my Mastermind group this past weekend and on the flight back was thinking a lot about that concept. Feeling incredibly grateful for all the people I have intentionally chosen to spend most of my time with, both personally and professionally. People that are creating something, people that are fully alive and loving their life, people that are inspiring and motivating and generous with their time, energy and love.
I encourage you to have a look around, who are the 5 people you are with the most? How is that working for you? Think about how you feel when you are around each person. How do you feel after an interaction with that person? Are you inspired, are you hopeful, are you agitated, are you nervous? Really examine the feelings you feel after being around someone. Our emotions and feelings never lie. The body is an amazing compass to guide us and direct us.
Who are you surrounding yourself with?? Sometimes there is a need to clear it out~ making small or large changes to that circle. That doesn’t mean you don’t have that person in your life anymore, perhaps it’s just being more aware and conscious when you are with that person, or maybe it’s about not spending quite as much time with that person, or sharing deeply personal goals with that person.
We all want to be around people that are supporting and empowering. People that are up to creating things and thriving in their life and business. That’s who you want to be around.
If someone leaves you feeling depleted, negative, hopeless, please run in the other direction!
There are others that are neutral, just existing. Is that what you want? Really think about that. I think that is where so many people live. They are simply existing and going through the motions. Do you want that? I know I don’t. I want people that have a zest for life, for creativity and passion and purpose. People that are building and growing something, feeling fulfilled and having an impact in others and the world.
I recommend taking the assessment, watch how your life and business can shift simply by editing the 5 people. Surround yourself with those that live an inspired life, with dreamers and those that are truly living a life that is fulfilling and meaningful.
And from a business perspective, join a mastermind. If you don’t know of any enroll 5 colleagues or friends that are at similar places in their business and life. Start working on empowering and supporting one another. Work on growing each other.
Here is what I know for sure, magic happens in groups, we learn and grow together. Things are more powerful and effective when done in a group, things are harder when we feel alone. Right? Life in general is harder when alone. We are humans and at our core love connection.
So go out and create your circle. Be intentional in what you are growing, how you are living and create a group that supports that. Watch how your life and business will change, really quickly, once you start being intentional in who you are with the most.
I would love to hear from YOU! How did the edit go? What shifts did you see in your life, in your business, in your other relationships. Most importantly, what changes did you see in yourself?
I’m glad you’re here virtually with me, friend! May we continue to grow and inspire and support one another!
