Welcome to day one of Make Way For Miracles! Your challenge today is all about people. Listen to the recording below and don’t forget to join the Facebook group where I will be posting live videos and drawing for prizes every day!
Today our topic is…
Did you know that you are an average of the 5 people that you spend the most amount of time with?
Did you know that your bank account is also the average of the bank accounts of the 5 people that you spend the most amount of time with?
Pretty crazy right!?
Your associations and the people that you choose to have in your life, are literally shaping your life. I read about this a few years back and it has made a massive impact on my life. I started looking at the relationships in my life very differently.
I started noticing the emotions and the feelings I felt when I was around different groups of people. I noticed the thoughts I had. When I was around people playing at a higher level than me, going for it in life, it made me want to push myself. It made me look at my goals and think bigger, the possibilities that once seemed so out of reach, slowly started to become reality!
When I was around people that were living smaller than me, didn’t have big aspirations and visions for their life, who were living day to day, happy and content with just being… it made me second guess what I was doing. Maybe I already had enough, maybe I should just be happy with what I have, maybe I should live a simpler life.
WOW. This concept is real! And look… there is NOTHING wrong with any way that anyone lives their life. But if you want more, you need to up your game with who you surround yourself with. Find friends that push you out of your comfort zone, make you feel a little uncomfortable or stretched. See what happens over the course of a few weeks, months, years.
This is a concept that every high achiever and extremely successful person I have studied, read about, encountered, has implement into their lives and look, it isn’t easy! Especially in the beginning. It may be hard to cut ties with people that you care about, but know are not in alignment with your life anymore. It is okay and really it is part of life and growth. You must protect your time and it is your decision in life to do what you want, with who you want. No one else’s, but your own. It is your decision on who you spend time with and who you don’t. There is no need for guilt, people pleasing, keeping everyone happy.
Your challenge for today is to take a good look at your associations. Who are the 5 people that you spend the most amount of time with? How do those people make you feel? Do they support & inspire your vision for your life?
If not, guess what… it is time to start limiting time and surrounding yourself with people that do.
And if you crossed off your entire list and don’t have anyone left, hey that is okay too! I’ve been there. I have a super fun bonus exercise for you. Hop on over to the Facebook group for your extra credit 🙂
AND don’t forget! Sometime today, post a message inside the Facebook group via the picture below. Let me know if you need help, if you are stuck with people that are tough to come to realizations with OR if you are just starting fresh or maybe you have an incredible tribe already 🙂 I want to hear about it! I will choose one person and you’ll win an amazing prize.
