Hi MaxPower 2U nation! Today's topic deals with the circle of people you keep. All of us have a circle of friends that we have in our confidence for various reasons, but are those people adding to your life or simply bringing unnecessary stress and drama in to it.
On your life long empowerment journey you will require a circle of people that you can depend on to stick their neck out for you or stretch out their hand to you at any moment. Only with a tight nit circle of trustworthy empowering people can you truly reach a place of great success and MaxPotential.
On the other hand, if you are putting your time and effort in to people who constantly drag you down or take away from you more than they give back to you, than you will find yourself struggling to move forward at a pace or direction suitable for a successful outcome in the future.
You must realize that the company you keep speaks volumes about you. It will reveal a side of you that either speaks well about you or not. And in the never ending road to success, it will be crucial that you have a good standing reputation-especially when it comes to the company you keep.
As the saying goes, "Old habits die hard," so to do friendships. As difficult and awkward as it may be, you must be able to cut ties with those people in your life that, if you admit it, are pulling you down or attracting negative energy to you. This is the hard part, but a very necessary aspect of starting to establish a strong circle. As you start to rid your life of negative self defeatist people, you will begin to make room for the empowering ones.
As you move along in this process however, you must also begin to seek out and surround yourself with those that have similar drives, goals, aspirations, motivations and outlook in life, family and career. Only then will your circle begin to strengthen and add to your life as an unending source of support and positive energy.
So look around at your circle and ask yourself, are these people empowering me or simply stagnating me? Regardless of what answers you come up with, you must keep in mind that your circle is precious and sacred-never something to be taken lightly.
With that said,
"Put a little MaxPower in your life!"
