We really are who we surround ourselves with. Our environment plays a key role in our lives. The most positive person in the world can turn negative by simply being around a bunch of negative people and vice versa.
It’s not just about positivity versus negativity. It’s about everything. I don’t know if it actually made me smarter but it sure felt like it when I started surrounding myself with brilliant people in my industry. Maybe it was just that they ignited my passion, confidence or energy but I started making smarter decisions. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the change in who I was surrounding myself with everyday.
We’re about to embark on a brand new year so it’s a great decision time. Are there people negatively impacting your life that maybe you need to let go of? Are there people you want to meet this year that are influencers in your field or in an area you are interested in? Make it happen in 2017! Surround yourself with the people who will help you become the best you possible, who will bring out the best in you.
Your time is precious. Don’t waste time or space on people who are dragging you down. So, who are you inviting to sit at your special table in 2017?
