Did you know that you’re the average of the five people you spend most of your time with? It’s common for us to underestimate the importance of the company we keep. We need people in our lives, whether they’re teachers, mentors, family or trusted friends, who challenge us and push us to be better.
The right circle of influence should raise the bar, helping us to set new, loftier expectations of ourselves. Oftentimes, we don’t know what we are capable of until we see others achieve. When we surround ourselves with positive, successful people they consciously (and subconsciously) challenge us to be our best selves.
Not Everybody Fits
Check your circle! Think about the 5 people that you spend the majority of your time with. Are they toxic? Are they jealous? Are they trustworthy? Are they genuine? Are they real? Are they loyal? Evaluate everyone you associate with and make sure you aren’t losing by association.
Loren Ridinger-Check Your Circle
If you haven’t had the privilege of hearing one of Loren Ridinger’s speeches, you are really missing out!! She is one of the most inspiring boss babes that I have met and I look forward to her presentations every 6 months when we get together.
She has been extremely instrumental in my own personal growth, and she continues to inspire me. Here’s a short clip from her speech in August-Check Your Circle.
My Trainer Circle
First of all-I am so unbelievably PROUD of our Motives Trainers. They are by far some of the most TALENTED people I have EVER come across! Not only that, they are the most PASSIONATE and CARING group of individuals I have met…There’s no cattiness, jealously, animosity, or even competition. It’s a group of successful entrepreneurs that truly CARE & offer SUPPORT for each other. We LIFT each other up when needed, and CARRY those when they need it.
They have become some of my best friends and I can’t imagine my life without them. I am truly BLESSED to have them all in my life. They always step up and support me in my role with the company, no questions asked. And I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without them…
Then we have the most INCREDIBLE CEOs on the PLANET! Not only are they are the most hard working individuals that I have ever met, but they CARE so much for the field. They have created something that is changing the world & they have taught me some of the most VALUABLE things that have affected my life and my business and I will forever be grateful for them both.
Team Live Your Dash
I am also blessed to have an amazing local team-Team Live Your Dash. We support and push each other in so many ways. We push each other out of our comfort zones and take turns leading each other. We are there for each other through the good and the bad. We all have a mission to help others truly LIVE their dash fully.
Check Your Circle
When you start operating in your purpose there will people who will not like you. That’s OK! Take note of the people who liked you better when you were unsure and insecure. Those aren’t your people. Your people don’t condemn you when “you change” they affirm you for it!
Your circle should want you to win. Your circle should clap the loudest when you have good news. If they don’t get a new circle and see how much you GROW! I know it’s hard, but you owe it to yourself!
