I am coming to you today from Park City, Utah. I’m on a girl’s trip with ten friends, and I want to talk to today specifically about surrounding yourself with people that make you better. The girls that I’m up here with are entrepreneurs, they are married, they have families, they have built businesses from scratch, and we all come together once a year and we help each other, we promote each other, we support each other, we lift each other up. And it’s a huge priority in my life, as it should be in yours, to surround yourself with the people that just make you better! They make you stronger. They make you want to do more and they make you want to be more.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Think about that for a second. It’s truly just human nature to begin modeling feelings and behavior of the people you spend the most time with. The most successful women practice this always.
Unfortunately, there are people in the world who are so negative that they literally suck the life out of you, and you may not even realize it. You know who I’m talking about. They’re always gossiping, have a more negative outlook on life, may always seem like they’re working on something, but don’t really get much accomplished, and seem to want to bring others down, rather than lift them up. These even may be family members.
Let me just tell you that it’s OKAY to be a little selfish and want more for yourself. If you must, love them from a distance and protect your energy!! You’re worth it!
Don’t forget to drop me a comment and say hi. Share this with your tribe who makes you better!!
