Birds of the same feather, flock together
Hope your week is going great!
Earlier today, I thought about what it means to have a few positive and supportive people in our lives. It’s not only good to have these few people in our lives but it can also lead to a brighter and better future! If we hung out with people who brought us down and never encourage us, how would we ever rise above mediocrity?
I once heard that the five people you hang out with the most can closely resemble who you are and that it’s best to hang out with winners, not losers. On the other side of the coin, we do come across people who aren’t as like-minded but we learn from those experiences too which is good because we see things from another light. Therefore, making sure that those five people are inspiring you and supporting your dreams is very important.
Here are some quick tips for being around the right crowd:
- Be around people who are smarter than you – This way you’ll learn, grow and find out new things about new topics. At first, it will be intimidating but the rewards will be wroth it.
- Don’t be afraid to not want to hang out with people who bring you down. You’ll know who these people are by your intuition, it will always guide you to the right people if you just listen.
- Dream big together – Find similar individuals with the same intentions and visions as you. That way, you can get through the path together and help support and encourage one another.
These supportive individuals are the ones we turn to when we are feeling low and ones that can uplift and encourage our spirit.I also think that the 5 closest people you hang out with is really important. Being around supportive and uplifting individuals also create a similar consciousness. If you end goal was to be successful in business, then learning from the best and being around the best people would could have more of a higher impact on you rather than hanging out with people who aren’t willing to grow and learn with you.
At the end of the day, the decision is really up to the individual. Everyone we meet is a small reflection of who we are.
