You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. The people you spend the most time with are most important as they determine your success. It’s important to surround yourself with people that give you energy, help support your dreams and do not hold you back.
Write down the names of the five people you spend the most time with. Then put a positive sign next to those who are the most positive and who you would like to spend the most time with. Those who support you and give you energy. Then make a minus sign next to those people who you find it difficult to spend time with and that are sapping your energy. Become more aware of who you spend your time with as it is important for your own journey. If people are dragging you down and putting you down then it is time to set boundaries. Think of a hot air balloon, if you want to balloon to soar you need to release the sandbags. You do not have to feel guilty about letting go of those people that break you down.
You should also think of yourself as a mentor to the five people you spend the most time with. You can give them recognition, show respect towards them and greet them in the mornings, complement them for good work and give them opportunity to learn, even if they make mistakes, help them right in a nice way. Look in the mirror and see who you really are. Are you someone who keeps people back? When do you provide happiness in other people’s lives?
Write a gratitude list to all these people that help to build you and support you. Try and see those qualities that you admire in them in yourself.
