Your 5 People
You are the 5 people you surround yourself with.
These people are the ones who can lift you up or bring you down.
I have moved home for quarantine and I have never felt this productive. I am surrounded by 3 individuals who are incredibly driven, hard working and motivated. Not to mention I am able to thrive on an early morning schedule thanks to my family of early birds.
The two ladies I talk to everyday are the two most empowering and inspiring people I have ever met in my life. And in so, are pushing me to chase my dreams harder and let my fears fly to the wind.
Are you choosing your 5 people or are you letting them choose you?
Rachel Hollis said it and I can't stop repeating it. You become the 5 people you surround yourself with.
If you are the most motivated, ambitious, intelligent, dedicated person in your circle.... you need to find yourself a new circle.
I want to be surrounded by people I can be learning and growing from every single day. My 5 people push me to shoot higher and work harder.
On the opposite end, it can be so easy to find yourself surrounded by people who are unmotivated, uninspired, always on their phones or always talking negatively. No matter how excited and ambitious you are, this will start to wear and tear on you over time.
It's okay to choose your 5, heck you have to choose your 5. Friendships flow in and out of our lives constantly and the grief of losing one is not something to downplay. It's hard, it sucks and it's heartbreaking to lose a friend you thought was lifting you up. But the importance of understanding those you surround yourself with will make or break you living out your dreams and your best life.
Who are your 5? How do they lift you, motivate you and inspire you?
