Today Jim inspired us to think about the people we surround ourselves with on a daily basis. We've heard that you are the sum of the top five people that you surround yourself with! Jim shared a quote today by Edmund Lee to express how important this idea is.
"Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself."— Edmund Lee
Let's face it, we have got one shot at this thing called life. One go around to make a change in others lives and impact the people we care about. In order to become the very best, most efficient version of yourself we need to arm ourselves with the very best support we can get to accomplish our goals and dreams.
Most of us have all been in a group of peers that is fun to be around, that we feel like we are the big fish in the small pond. The leader, the go to, the king of the hill. That's great but unfortunately it will never help us achieve true greatness. We will never grow in that circle being always at the top.
There have also been times that our circle includes friends, family and co workers that just drain the energy right out of you. You could work out every day to be your very best, have a routine that drives you to get results, and educate yourself with the best advice you can find, but if you are surrounded by peers that drag you down instead of lift you up its going to be nearly impossible to propel your life forward and achieve the dream.
So what are we saying, "unfriend" those people who are toxic in your lives? Yes, is the answer! It may seem wrong or hard to do but if you want to become more you need to start surrounding yourself with peers that have accomplished the things you are dreaming of. That will lift you up and see your true greatness. Someone who sees the diamond in the rough.
Tony Robbins frequently mentions that where focus goes, energy flows. If you are surrounded by negative energy you should not be surprised what you end up focusing on. So take a moment, look at the circle of people in your life. If they don't match up with what who you want to become, its time to make a shift!
From our team to you be the change you want to see in the world! Good luck!
