1. Start spending time with the right people. – These are the people you enjoy, who love and appreciate you, and who encourage you to improve in healthy and exciting ways. They are the ones who make you feel more alive, and not only embrace who you are now, but also embrace and embody who you want to be, unconditionally.
Who are the right people? Titles don’t matter. Longevity doesn’t matter. Qualities matter. You can’t embrace everyone. It doesn’t matter if it’s a family member or BFF since Pre-K. If you aren’t growing, protected, and loved within that relationship, give it some space. You don’t have to drop them, please don’t drop them. They have a place in you life, it just may no longer be a starring role. Just manage the attention you give that relationship differently.
And, make new connections. Reach out to people doing incredible things. Build relationships, or build on relationships, that are taking you in the direction you desire.
The people that I engage, should be engaging in my life also.
This week, start assessing your relationships. Are you getting what you need from them? Do they require more work from you, or do you need to give them some space?
This week, work to make a new connection that pushes you in the direction you want to go. Send a friend request, or follow, on social media, reach out to an existing friend or associate, or research the things you want to add to your life and the people that can help you get there.
Easy enough? Absolutely.
