It’s been said that “we are the sum of the 5 closest people in our circle”. Which is why it’s so important to keep the RIGHT people closest to us.
Personally, I consider myself so lucky and blessed to have finally found my tribe - the friends I can count on when I need them, who constantly push me towards achieving my dreams and goals, and who I can go weeks (even months!) without seeing, and when we reunite it's like no time has passed at all. We support each other. We lift each other up. And, we love each other -not just for who we are, but who we become when we're together.
My tribe continuously makes me a better person.
But, it wasn't always that way, and I've definitely done my fair share of figuring out who actually deserves to be in my closest circle.
So, here’s a little challenge for ya. Think about the FIVE people you hang around most often and ask yourself this:
• Which of these friends have similar priorities, goals, and values?
• Which of them are constantly challenging, supporting or encouraging you to accomplish your dreams?
• On the other hand, which of these friends might be limiting your belief systems or holding you back from achieving your ultimate potential?
• Which ones tend to resent you or make you feel guilty for certain choices you make?
Ultimately, finding the right tribe is CRUCIAL to living your happiest, healthiest & most successful life.
Besides, we ALL need someone who will challenge us, support us, push us out of our comfort zone and take awkward "candid" photos with us... am I right?
